Charming home in Glen Forrest

THE north-facing patio of this Glen Forrest home is a great spot for lunches, barbecues and sundowners, or to seek out the sunshine on fine wintery days.

Built on a 1.5ha block the three-bedroom brick and tile home has a modern kitchen with a meals area.

The home, which the owners have modernised over the years, has been freshly painted throughout.

There is a separate spacious formal lounge with built-in shelving.

A tiled open plan dining and family area has a slow combustion wood fire and a split system air-conditioner.

The main bedroom has built-in robes and one of the generous minor bedrooms has two entrances, which means it can double as a study-home office or even a children’s play room.

The well-established gardens, with their mix of native and exotic plants, are a haven for birds.

The mostly cleared block is connected to mains water and also has a spring-fed well, a powered 6m by 6m workshop, which is lined and insulated (has been used as a studio), a garden shed and an open-faced machinery shed.

Nyaania Creek flows through the property during the winter and spring.

New fencing and gates around the house make the backyard a safe place for children and pets.

The block backs on to the old Railway Reserves heritage walking trail.

The home is a short distance to the Glen Forrest café strip, medical centre, primary school, Helena College and is on the bus route to Eastern Hills Senior High School, close to Mundaring Village and an easy commute to Midland and Perth airport.
