THIS White Gum Valley home has a bit of a Mediterranean vibe.
It’s on full show in the lovely courtyard which has a beautiful set of wooden doors, limestone bar in the corner, sheltered alfresco and plenty of lush foliage.
It’s a delightful idyll, where I could imagine sitting with an espresso in the morning and come 5pm a nice glass of Rioja and a cheese board (no Kraft slices, thank you).
There are other little nods to the Mediterranean throughout this three bedroom one bathroom home including the large reddish floor tiles in the living areas and the aquamarine splashback in the kitchen.
The u-shaped kitchen is spacious with the natural finishes on the cupboards enhancing the being-at-one-with-nature feel you get from the plants and trees in the garden.
There’s a nice view of the courtyard from the kitchen, so preparing meals won’t be a travail as you look out at the gorgeous Mediterranean setting.
The living spaces are big enough without being huge, and what you perhaps lose in sqm in an older home, you make up with character.
This abode has lots of charm and feels like a classy property with discerning owners – everywhere you turn there is a tasteful painting or vintage wooden furniture.
It’s light and airy as well, courtesy of the many windows, and I like how you can look out at the verdure while in the dining room.
The bedrooms are finished to the same high standard with the spacious ensuite main sporting walk-in robes and the others with built-in robes.
The home is quite versatile with a huge powered studio at the rear of the property, which is perfect for an artist, musician or as a workshop.
The gardens are relaxing and the house is couched in a mix of greenery including mature fruit trees, rose bushes and frangipanis. A veritable oasis in White Gum Valley.
The home includes off-street parking for two cars, split air conditioning systems, ceiling fans, dishwasher and covered alfresco.
Situated on a 440sqm block on Pitts Lane, you are close to public transport, local golf courses, shops and cafes, White Gum Valley Primary School, playgrounds and Booyeembara Park.
And come summer, it’s only a short drive down the hill to South Beach and Fremantle.
This White Gum Valley home is perfect for a small family who want a charming abode or even as a downsizer for an older couple.
