WITH its dramatically tall skillion roof, offset by an elegant row of pencil pines, it’s hard to believe this Dianella home is 45 years old.
Built in 1973 on Booker Street, this five-bedroom/two-bathroom home has been extensively renovated to create an impressive, modern family abode.
Huge solid-timber front doors are a great entry statement and frame a white-tiled vestibule.
Timber ceiling beams add a dramatic touch in the adjacent sunken formal lounge, where huge windows ensure plenty of natural light.
The kitchen has lovely floor-to-ceiling solid jarrah cupboards and drawers, and feeding hungry kids would be a cinch with the six-burner stove, huge appliance cupboard and black granite benchtops.
If the little darlings are watching telly in the family room, simply hand the sandwiches through the hatch.
This commodious space, with its tiled floor and golden-cedar ceiling, is next to an indoor pool, so it’s easy to keep an eye on your brood.
There are two alfrescos; the first is a pleasant area off the kitchen, which has raised garden beds with a couple of mini fruit trees, and the other is in the garden behind the poolhouse—a great spot to enjoy a bevvy between dips.
Sitting on a whopping 1057sqm, there’s plenty of grass for the kids to play on.
The main bedroom at the front of the home is a generous space, with a bank of mirrored built-in-robes, and one set of doors pulls back to reveal the en suite, which has double vanities.
This is a great family home close to schools and shops.
With an R20 zoning there’s development potential too, subject to council approval, and the possibility of a rent-back arrangement with the owners.
