THERE is plenty of room for family in this five-bedroom Maida Vale home, which despite its rural serenity is close to the essentials of modern life.
On a 0.95ha block the double brick home has scenic views from most windows.
The home with a portico entry has three zones – the formal areas, office and main bedroom at the front, the central casual living spaces and the minor bedrooms.
Both the formal lounge and dining rooms are tiled and are separated by a recessed walkway linking the foyer to a big open-plan family and meals area.
A custom-designed home office for up to three people has built-in storage and shelving for books and documents.
The sunken theatre room with built-in speakers could double as a games room.
The kitchen has a breakfast bar, a gas cooktop and oven, a dishwasher, rangehood, walk-in pantry, tiled splashbacks and ample storage space.
All the bedrooms have carpet.
The main bedroom has double doors leading into the walk-in wardrobe and a fully-tiled ensuite with a corner spa bath, a shower and a separate toilet.
A built-in study-computer nook doubles as a two-person work station to give the children their own activity wing away from the parents.
A big paved patio, barbecue and alfresco area overlooks the below ground swimming pool, which has a glass fence on one side so you can more easily watch the children while they are in the pool.
There is plenty of space for the children and pets to play and with local government approval potential to keep a horse.
For parking there is a remote-controlled double garage and extra space down the side of the property.
A big powered workshop and adjacent garden shed both have concrete floors.
The home, which has been freshly painted, has two toilets and a powder room, a walk-in linen press, a shopper’s door, a new ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning system, downlights, security doors, a gas hot water system and a bore for reticulation.
The rear garden has exotic fruit trees and the property backs onto a creek.
The home is close to schools, shopping, a golf course, major arterial roads and the Kalamunda town centre.
