Medici-like home, full of el­e­gance and mood

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Cover Story -

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.” ■
