WHERE MEMORIES ARE MADE
34 Hassell Street
ELLEKER, WA 6330
For kids, growing up in the country is healthy, active and loads of fun.
For their parents, having a manageable few acres is a wonderful way of providing this upbringing, while indulging in their own rural pursuits.
This lovely, well-established hobby farm of 1.22 hectares – which is a tad over three acres – in Elleker will appeal to families looking for a rural lifestyle without sacrificing the necessary facilities the City offers just 15 minutes away.
However, it will be just as appealing to farmers looking to retire closer to town without entirely sacrificing a life on the land, and those wanting to develop a horticulture or agriculture venture on an affordable block with an attractive home to nestle in to.
Mostly in pasture with some mature gum trees for shelter and character, the block has a long frontage to Hassell Street, and the home is positioned near one corner, providing a good expanse of usable land. Water is plentiful from a 12,500-gallon rainwater tank and a bore accessing water of drinking quality.
Outbuildings include a tool shed, a machinery shed and a separate freestanding room which lends itself to use as a studio, games room, teens’ retreat or outdoor store room. The well-fenced property is suitable for a variety of uses and the land is ideal for running sheep or goats, grazing and stabling a horse or two, keeping chooks and cultivating vegetables for the family or for the farmers’ market.
The homestead is a lovely, comfortable place, which is spotlessly clean and tidy, and well maintained.
At one end is the light, welcoming living area, comprising a lounge, dining space and adjoining kitchen. This is a place for catching up after a day’s work or school and relaxing. For playing, there’s an activity area along the hallway leading to the bedrooms. A good-sized space for indoor games, this even has a built-in cupboard big enough to house all the toys.
The king-sized master suite at the far end of the house is an impressive retreat. This has an ensuite bathroom with shower, vanity and toilet, and a walk-in robe with shelving as well as hanging space. Glass doors lead out to the front of the home, and windows on another wall give this room a light, airy feel.
The other three family bedrooms are all doubles, and two have built-in robes. Nearby is the main bathroom, which has a terrific deep bath, shower and vanity. The toilet is separate, off the laundry.
Complementing the indoor living spaces is a generous undercover, sheltered patio at the rear. This overlooks the garden, which is mostly in lawn with neat, easy-care garden beds.
Adjacent to the homestead are a double garage and a double high-clearance carport, positioned for quick access to the house.
The school bus stops at the end of the road, and there’s a general store and fuel outlet in the Elleker township.
For when you feel like throwing out a line or taking a dip, the coast is a few minutes away, and for getting into the bush, there are excellent four-wheel drive tracks in the area.
