Mundaring’s very own Araluen

HIDDEN in central Mundaring this 1.9ha block has a main home, studio cottage, a small writer’s cottage, potter’s shed, powered workshop and manicured grounds with a mature botanical garden.

Built in red brick and iron the main house and the neighbouring one-bedroom cottage have high ceilings, French doors and big timber sash windows.

The timber country kitchen in the main home has a Metters wood-fired stove (one of three on the property), an electric oven, cooktop and plenty of bench space and storage.

An adjoining bookshelf-lined dining area will be a hit with avid readers.

The big formal lounge has a slow combustion fire built into an ornate timber mantle.

There are two carpeted bedrooms with built-in robes at the end of the home while the library-office or third bedroom has wall-to-wall bookshelves.

The cottage with views to the gardens is an open plan room with a lacquered concrete floor, high ceilings, French doors and elegant sash windows.

It has a timber kitchenette, separate toilet, vanity and shower, plenty of crisp white cabinetry and ample room for a bed and lounge.

More than an impressive collection of plants and trees, the garden is filled with destinations including the potting shed draped in climbing roses.

Meandering along lawn pathways over a timber bridge spanning the trickling stream, which flows through the property, past magnificent groves of deciduous and evergreen trees of every shape, size and colour will take you to the writer’s cottage.

The property has a detached, powered brick double garage, a big powered workshop with rainwater tanks at the rear along with utility areas for stockpiled gardening materials and compost.

There is a big reticulated croquet lawn and a shingle and timber gazebo ideal for hosting a Great Gatsby-themed garden party.

The property, which attracts abundant wildlife, is completely screened from the road with a dual entry circular gravel driveway.

Agents Bobby and Jo Sheil said while the property was an easy walking distance to Mundaring its seclusion guaranteed few knew it existed.
