SET on a 1.3ha block this Australian-style homestead combines country charm and comfortable living while still being close to Mundaring town centre.
Set back from the road behind native parkland, the 1993-built clinker-brick home, has formal gardens.
The four-bedroom, two-bathroom home has high ceilings and includes a big study with a built-in desk and shelving, formal and informal living areas, a spacious main bedroom and a separate junior wing.
Outside there are sheds for storage and a workshop, stables and at the rear of the property a paddock for a horse.
From the circular driveway at the front of the home, wide granite steps lead up to a long, paved veranda and into the central portico, the open family room is arranged to one side and a formal lounge with brick-surround fireplace to the other.
The family room has a long window seat with storage.
A slow combustion fireplace ensures you are never too hot or too cold.
A granite splash back and benchtops, white cabinetry and a big walk-in pantry make for a practical, family-friendly kitchen.
A formal dining room adjoins the kitchen with views across the lawn to the pond and water feature.
The main bedroom at the northern end of the home is a self-contained adults’ zone where double doors open to reveal plush carpet, reverse cycle air-conditioning, a ceiling fan and views to the garden.
Five full-height built-in robes line the entrance to the big, tiled ensuite complete with a corner spa, shower, two vanities and separate toilet.
The carpeted queen-sized junior bedrooms and a family bathroom with a separate toilet are at the southern end of the home.
Running across the back of the home is a deep, gabled entertaining area with views to the lawn and gardens.
Within earshot of the water feature, the alfresco space is great for relaxed summer meals, weeknight barbecues and other daily activities or just lazing about.
Still in place is the plumbed, powered and insulated shed used by the original owners when building the home – a ready-made sleep-out for teens or with a little polish a stand-alone guest retreat.
Summit Rd ends with a track leading through to the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail, which is great for riding, cycling or walking.
Arterial road links and a choice of primary and secondary schools deliver a well-rounded Perth Hills lifestyle.
