This 4x2 brick and tile home has been extensively remodelled. The kitchen has been updated to include large ceramic sinks and a brand new 900 mm Smeg stainless steel stove (gas cooktop/forced fan oven). Both toilets have been replaced, and there are new matching light fixtures throughout the home. The roof has been professionally restored.Colourbond gutter and downpipes have also been relaced. There is a reverse cycle air conditioner in the family room and the formal lounge has a heat form fireplace (the heat form is an efficient open fronted pot belly that heats the air and also provides radiated heat from the steel enclosure).
The home includes a formal lounge, kitchen/dining room, family/theatre room, and a large laundry room. The master bedroom has an en-suite and large walk-in-robe.
All rooms are protected by an advanced alarm system that includes motion sensors, glass breakage detectors, a monitored smoke alarm, and screamers. The electrics are protected by twin earth leakage detectors and circuit breakers and there are two smoke alarms.
For additional security, there is a camera intercom on the front door. Hot water is provided by solar.There is a long verandah along the front and side of the home from which to enjoy the views.
The rear garden has an enclosed recycled brick courtyard area that would be ideal for entertaining and for those hot Perth summer days, a concrete, below ground salt-water swimming pool overlooking the city (the sand filter, pump, self-cleaning chlorinator cell, and controller have been replaced).
There is plenty of parking on this property, the front has a large parking area and behind the house there is a double garage (brick/iron). For those that would like a huge workshop, there is plenty of room to erect one with vehicle access to the rear of the property.
For the garden lovers, there is a well-established “old fashioned” garden with lots of trees. There are a number of perfumed plants including jasmine, honeysuckle, etc. There are plenty of fruit trees including weeping mulberry, loquat, plum, pomegranate, avocado, lemon, and tangelo.
There are also a number of roses. Lots of native birds are also present including kookaburras, galahs, 28s, new Holland honey eaters, magpies, and greeneyes to name a few.
A bore has been drilled that according to the driller's estimation can produce 50 tonnes (50,000 litres) of crystal clear water per day. The driller measured the water at 20 ppm salt which is very pure (rainwater is 10 ppm salt).
The views over Perth are spectacular at night – highly recommended to inspect this property in the evening as well as the day.
The location and aspect of this home is ideally suited for a future double storey addition – enclosing the pool and over the top of the formal lounge would be a stunning addition.
This ½ acre property is located 25 minutes from the city and is only 20 minutes from the airport – ideal for fly in/fly out.Move in and enjoy the Hills lifestyle.
