Medici-like home, full of elegance and mood
AFTER 15 years, 4 Throssell Street, Dalkeith is on the market again.
It was featured in the May 21, 2002 issue of Western Suburbs Weekly and David and Noeline Williams were the lucky purchasers.
“We had lived in the area for some time and wanted to move from our 1400sq m block to a smaller block,” they said.
“We knew the house and were attracted by its Medici-like appearance.
“We were also impressed by the sheer quality of the building and materials used.”
With properties in the South-west and Tasmania and another on the beach in Perth and limited time to spend in Perth, they are now selling their incredible Dalkeith residence.
Mr and Mrs Williams said the unique property was not a house for everyone.
“You will not find a multitude of modern gadgets,” they said.
“It is a house of mood and elegance, which lends itself to art and artefacts.
“It has many rooms and spaces where you can enjoy every aspect of living, in the day or evening, with family and friends, or in solitude.”
Mr and Mrs Williams have found the neighbourhood to be just as special as the house. “It is a small street; an enclave of trees, and some 50 metres toward the Sunset/jutland Parade reserve,” they said.
“The bird life is fantastic and our morning ritual begins with feeding a cavalcade of magpies, mudlarks, butcher birds, ravens, and kookaburras.
“We are dog lovers and below us, two minutes away, is one of the best dog walks in Perth – from White Beach to Jojos.
“Plus, our boat is moored at the Flying Squadron Yacht Club, also two minutes away, and its only a kilometre or two to our delightful local bar and café at Steve’s.” ■
