Stum­bling on Sil­verdale nat­u­rally

Midland Reporter - - #Snapperth - Tracy O’Meara-Smith.

LIV­ING and work­ing in a 90year-old home in Les­mur­die away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the city is heaven for Tracy O’Meara-Smith and her fam­ily.

Mrs O’Meara-Smith said it was by com­plete chance she dis­cov­ered Sil­verdale in 2003.

“I grew up in Trigg and my hus­band I were look­ing for a prop­erty in the Hills and we got lost while go­ing to look at a house for sale in Carmel,” she said. “We stum­bled upon a for sale sign out­side of Sil­verdale, which has an amaz­ing his­tory.

“My home was orig­i­nally a guest house for Colonel San­der­son, a found­ing mem­ber of the Hills and later a con­va­les­cence home for war vet­er­ans.

“I love the unique­ness of this prop­erty and it is such a won­der­ful, safe place for kids to run amok in the bush.

“It’s my own lit­tle sanc­tu­ary away from the CBD.”

Last year Mrs O’Mear­aSmith set up her nat­u­ral ther­apy busi­ness

“My clients love trav­el­ling up the hill for treat­ments, as it is a won­der­ful haven with trees, birds and na­ture,” she said. “City dwellers are start­ing to shift their mind­set that the Hills aren’t that far away.

“I really am blessed to live and work from this space – it’s in­cred­i­bly spe­cial with in­cred­i­ble his­tory.”
