Homestead haven

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Rural -

RICH in his­tory as well as lux­u­ries, this orig­i­nal homestead farm­house in Hal­lett Cove boasts a sense of tran­quil­lity and sen­sa­tional views.

The 110-year-old prop­erty is set on two ti­tles, with one block on 1555sq m and the other 835sq m.

Agent Nick Daniel is also the owner of the prop­erty, which he is pass­ing on af­ter more than eight years of liv­ing it up.

‘‘I sold it to a guy who only had it for 10 months and he said ‘Why don’t we swap homes?’’’ Mr Daniel says. ‘‘He knew how much I loved it.’’

The home was built in 1900, but has been ren­o­vated with many mod­ern touches.

Mr Daniel says the best as­pects of the prop­erty are its space, quiet­ness and views.

From the back ve­randa you can look out over the pic­turesque swim­ming pool, with a mini golf course run­ning along­side.

These ar­eas make the home great for large-scale gath­er­ings, and a self-con­tained ac­com­mo­da­tion wing of the home sup­ports this well.

For the cre­ative chef, there is a large kitchen with an is­land bench and a beau­ti­fully main­tained gar­den to grow your own herbs and spices.

Land­scaped gar­dens run the length of the drive­way.

Am­ple park­ing space is avail­able off-road and in the triple car­port.

The mas­ter bed­room suite has a stylish walk-in dress­ing room, and each of the other three bed­rooms are gen­er­ously sized.

A 100sq m ball­room is also likely to be a draw­card, Mr Daniel says.

‘‘The beau­ti­ful ball­room has got full cor­nices around the lights and big bi-fold doors, which open out on to the ve­randa.

De­spite its se­cluded ap­pear­ance, Mr Daniel says the home is only a short walk away from a few shop­ping cen­tres.

‘‘It’s very handy to the shops, about 400m from Bar­ra­mundi Drive and only about 800m to the main shop­ping cen­tre,’’ he says.
