HIGH ON THE HILL
5 Michaelmas Way
COLLINGWOOD HEIGHTS, WA 6330
Here’s a property to get excited about if you’re in the market for a generous family home on a big block, within easy reach of good schools, shops, recreation areas, the beach and town.
It will tick all these off your list, plus it takes in expansive views from the main living area and rear patio.
On an elevated lot of 812sqm in a quiet cul-de-sac, the brick and tile home is comfortable and well presented, with fresh decor and raked ceilings enhancing the feeling of space and light.
It also gives the occupants a choice of living areas, offering flexibility of use for family members to do their own thing, so it’s a great home for all ages.
The front door opens onto a welcoming entrance hall, with the master bedroom on one side, the lounge opposite, and a hallway leading to the family room directly ahead.
Two big windows in the lounge let in the panoramic outlook from the Southern Ocean and Michaelmas and Breaksea Islands, and round to the west, over the city and towards Mts Clarence, Adelaide and Melville.
A wood fire in this room heats this and the adjoining dining space, where glass sliding doors lead out to a sizeable sheltered, covered patio for family barbecues or entertaining. Wide-ranging views over rural land provide a peaceful outlook from the patio, which also overlooks the fully fenced back garden.
At the heart of the home is the newly renovated kitchen, with white cabinetry and impressive marble bench tops, a dishwasher, pantry and stainless steel stove.
A wide hatch in the kitchen opens it up to the family room at the rear – another comfy area with full-length windows and a wood fire.
The master bedroom is a good-sized double, carpeted and with a walk-in robe and en suite bathroom complete with shower, vanity and toilet.
The other three bedrooms – all doubles with built-in robes – are in a wing off the family room, alongside the main bathroom with bath, shower and vanity, and the laundry and toilet.
Under the main roof is a garage with room for a vehicle and plenty of space for storage or for installing a work bench. There’s also further off-road parking for several cars – or the trailer, the dinghy and the caravan.
Both front and back gardens are mostly lawns with native trees and garden beds for growing veggies and herbs.
Built in the mid-1970s, the home is solid and has been well maintained. New owners could add value to their investment by updating the bathrooms, but they are clean and sound as they are, so this could be done over time.
Its facilities, location and views would also appeal to tenants, and it could become a rental property without any further work, enhancing its value for investors.
Within walking distance of parks, and a short drive or bike ride away from the beach and the golf club, this property is just a few minutes from the city and close to primary and high schools, as well as a shopping centre.
