THE huge portico at this Dianella house hinted at the vast unconventional spaces inside.
A passageway at the entry led to a wing with the main bedroom, but here you’ll also find two huge lounge areas – one upstairs and one on the ground floor.
The ground-floor area has a brick-patterned parquetry floor, a gas “open” fire and a bank of french doors leading to a secluded courtyard.
Next door a timber-lined study is as cosy as a ship’s cabin, with built-in-cabinetry and a huge floor-to-ceiling bookshelf.
The second-level lounge is a large area perfect for a games room or artist’s studio.
There are infact three lounge rooms to choose from; but the owner’s favourite is in the open plan area.
Natural light floods through huge windows, and dark-gold timber floors are offset by a Toodyay stone feature wall.
Stone benchtops add a touch of panache to the recently renovated kitchen, and German-designed cabinetry ensures every centimetre of space is utilised, including carousel shelves for hard to reach corners.
There’s a generous floor-to-ceiling pull-out pantry and the kitchen sink is big enough to soak the racks from the double Ilve ovens.
The main bedroom is spacious with a walk-in-robe and en suite with double vanities, while the other three are all double with built-in-robes.
Sitting on 790sqm there’s a delightful garden with enough grass to host a cricket team, and a heap of fruit trees including a lime, fig and mango and a couple of lemon and orange trees.
As well as the alfresco, there’s a gazebo nestled in a pleasant corner.
But don’t worry, the garden is low maintenance thanks to bore water and reticulation.
Situated on Wanndina Avenue, Dianella Heights Primary School is a five-minute walk away and there are plenty of shops just up the road.
