Stunning Hills Home Set on 2 Acres
Are you looking for the release that comes from having space and tranquility, where you can relax on spacious decks overlooking your own parklands and pool, or sit next to your own giant fire pit under the stars?
Enjoy a simpler life in a fully restored 1920s country home in a community where people still know each other, kids still walk to school, play in the creeks and explore the local bush, climb rocks and meet up at the local playground, oval or skate park and make their own way home before dark and in time for tea?
This property offers a completely restored and extended residence circa 1920, with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, separate studio, separate games room, separate shed, ample parking for a caravan and boat, sweeping valley views, below ground pool, built-in fire pit, a verandah space with an amazing outlook, and very own winter creek all on a little over 2 acres.
The current owners have meticulously restored the home ensuring the original character and style has been maintained through-out. Every building of the property has been renovated or remodelled. The property is fully fenced and is nestled at the end of Amherst Avenue. Arrive at the gate and you will see the studio having been completely renovated using recycled materials. The main features have to be the natural light, exposed timbers and views of the valley. This powered space would be an ideal art studio, teenagers retreat or guest house.
A little further down the resurfaced drive, the main house instantly welcomes you with its impressive end to end verandah. Smart remodelling sees the front of the home separated into 2 wings. The kids section features a separate sitting room, family bathroom, and 3 bedrooms serviced by a wide hallway and plenty of linen cupboard space. All rooms feature high ceilings, Jarrah floorboards, traditional skirting boards and built-in Nobo wall heaters.
Parents haven’t been forgotten and are treated to their own sitting room, separate dressing room, good size Master bedroom and private ensuite.
Central to the home is the contemporary kitchen/ living room. There is plenty of bench space with a powered island and significant storage. The kitchen features a walk-in pantry. The cooking range is a 3 oven Kensington “Belling” with 5 burner gas cook top and electric oven with matt black range hood.
The living area has a large eat-in area for family and friends and well serviced by a wood burning stove or 3 ducted evaporative air conditioning vents. If you want to take you meals outside then you can sprawl out onto a huge covered deck through custom made Jarrah bi-fold doors. Food can be served to the deck through the matching custom made Jarrah bifold servery. Both sets of bi-folds have hidden retractable fly screens.
The views from the back deck have to be seen to be fully appreciated. Whether you’re enjoying watching over pool area, the games room with its own private deck or the fabulous fire pit you can take in the vista of the rest of block. There are about 200 square metres of reticulated lawn and the remaining land is easy care parkland gardens.
Away from the main house, the games room will become entertainment central for the kids. Fully insulated and powered it has enough room for table tennis and pool/snooker and TV. It also has its own deck and covered verandah.
Location of this property is key. The CBD is only 24 km’s away and it’s 10km’s to Perth Airport. Buses run from Darlington to Midland station and back for commuters catching the train to work. Buses run to several upper schools in the locality such as Helena College, Mazenod College, Eastern Hills and Perth College.
Only by viewing this property in person will you truly be able to appreciate the level of care that has gone into restoring this piece of Darlington history.
