NEAR bushland bordering the Helena River, this five-bedroom, two-bathroom home offers modern low-maintenance living together with a range of living and entertainment options.
The custom-built brick-and-tile Helena Valley home, which sits on a 878sqm block, has 16 rooftop solar-power panels, a ducted and zoned reverse-cycle air-conditioning system, fully-reticulated easy-care gardens and plenty of driveway parking space.
A tiled front portico and double-door entrance leads to an expansive floor plan including a home office opposite a main bedroom with a fitted walk-in wardrobe and fully-tiled ensuite bathroom.
A series of double doors also gives a sense of separation to the layout, including those revealing a carpeted lounge or “theatre” room with feature recessed lighting.
The central hub of the house incorporates a sunken family room, overlooked by an open-plan kitchen and dining area with down lighting, sparkling stone bench tops, a floating island breakfast bar, an induction cooktop, twin ovens, a semi-integrated dishwasher, a rangehood, walk-in pantry, water-filter tap, double sinks, glass splashbacks and ample storage options.
At present the fifth bedroom doubles as a gym.
Separating the big rear alfresco entertaining area from the below-ground swimming pool is a sunken patio, which doubles outdoor options and is of a decent size in itself.
Café blinds enclose the rear alfresco and sink area and there are shade sails over the swimming pool.
The big powered workshop shed with a mezzanine level has a hoist, trough, workbench area and drive-through access for a boat, trailer or caravan (or all three) via a roller door and a wide side-access gate.
Using the laneway next door ensures only a short stroll is necessary to get to the Helena Valley supermarket.
A medical centre is nearby, as are two primary schools and a recreation ground.
A short drive will take you to everyday amenities in Midland, including the Midland train station.
