PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Breathtakingly backing on to the majestic Beelu National Park and very close to the Zamia State Forest, this stunning 2.5-acre property high up in the Perth hills precinct consists of a spacious 4 bedroom 2 bathroom family home at the rear, a charming and self-contained 3×1 cottage dwelling – that is currently being utilised as a successful Airbnb – in front of it and lies only walking distance away from the Mundaring town centre and local shopping village.

Various gates on the residence allow you to have some horses and livestock on-site, with a rear gate to the National Park even revealing access to scenic walking and riding trails. Once you get to the top of the driveway through, you are greeted by chirping birdlife and nothing but lush, leafy surrounds, as well as a full wrapround verandah.

Upon entry, a study welcomes you inside and sits adjacent to the carpeted formal lounge room with a two-way wood-fireplace heater, as well as a sunny north-facing aspect that will please everybody in the winter. There are also lovely views out to the shimmering below-ground salt-water swimming pool from here.

A large king-sized master-bedroom suite can also be found at the front of the house and has its own walk-in wardrobe, a private “parent’s retreat” of a patio that connects to a huge protected entertaining patio out back and a contemporary ensuite bathroom with a bubbling corner spa bath, a shower, vanity and access into a two-way powder room. The main hub of the solar-passive-designed floor plan is a beautifully-tiled open-plan family, dining and kitchen area with a striking recessed ceiling, a gas bayonet for heating, its own bar to impress your guests with and access out to a pleasant north-facing alfresco deck overlooking the 9m x 4m (approx.) pool and its adjacent relaxation gazebo.

Preceding a versatile games room – or third living space – with split-system air-conditioning and its own gorgeous nature aspect, the functional kitchen plays host to a Simpson gas cooktop, a separate oven of the same brand, a range hood, a sleek white Fisher and Paykel double-drawer dishwasher, double sinks and a walk-in pantry for good measure. The minor sleeping quarters are made up of three bedrooms – one with a built-in robe, the other with walk-in robes – a separate second toilet and a practical main family bathroom with a shower, separate bathtub and heat lamps.

The wildcard in this unique hills real-estate package though is indeed the 1979-built (approx.) cottage dwelling that will comfortably cater for extended family, both older and younger generations or permanent tenants, if not as an income-earner through short-stay accommodation rentals. It is warmed by polished Jarrah floorboards to the open-plan living, dining and kitchen area, off a large wraparound verandah deck with a view of it all. It also has its own laundry and enclosed, yet gated, backyard that has a rear patio and is ideal for both kids and pets.

The main house has a remote-controlled double lock-up garage with internal shopper’s entry and an adjacent single carport for a third vehicle. There is a double carport-come-tractor lean-to (or covered storage area) only inches away from the back of the cottage, whilst ample parking space elsewhere is an absolute given. Aside from the spectacular feijoa trees in the orchard, the property has an exotic selection of various pear, granny-smith apple and two cherry-plum trees, very close to the family residence.

Don’t discount future zoning changes either – and the possibility of development potential. With two dwellings already situated on the acreage, something like this could prove easy to do down the track.

The Mundaring Hotel, Coles, Aldi, Woolworths, Dome Café, the Mundaring Arts Centre and the local bakery – it’s all just a matter of footsteps from your front gate. Escape to serenity less than 45 minutes from the convenience of our vibrant Perth CBD. What a rare offering this is!
