I COULD hear Somewhere Over the Rainbow in my mind as a huge chandelier in the soaring mezzanine flashed iridescent light onto the walls of this Dianella home.
“There’s a land that I’ve heard of once in a lullaby,” sums up the children’s wing on the second level, which has study nooks in the bedrooms.
Judging by the toys, colouring books and colourful dress-up costumes, the spacious sitting room is a great play area for kids.
Or it could be a nice den for teenagers to hang out with their mates and stare at their phones.
The huge main bedroom on the ground floor has a dressing room and an en suite with double vanities, a shower and a deep bath.
The fourth bedroom is currently a study with a built-in-desk and shelving.
For those who like a tipple, there’s a spacious wine cellar beside the study.
There’s certainly room for those blue birds to fly in the vast living area, which has a gas-powered coal fireplace and massive windows.
The kitchen is equally spacious with a huge expanse of stone benchtops, a walk-in-pantry and pantry cupboard. All the appliances are Bosch, including a built-in coffee machine.
Sliding doors provide access to the alfresco, which is sheltered on two sides and has high fences for privacy.
With a huge barbecue kitchen, including a plumbed-in sink and a sweep of stainless steel benchtops, it’s a great entertaining space.
Soothing neutral colours have been used throughout the home, creating an almost blank canvas for new owners.
Located on Lynmouth Road, this two-storey home is a few minutes away from Dianella Plaza, the lovely Breckler Park and close to Yokine Golf Club and several private and public schools.
