HOME ON THE RANGE
10 Bottlebrush Road
GLEDHOW, WA 6330
There’s something alluring about living on a semi-rural property, with a big block for peace and tranquility and the convenience of the city within easy reach.
If keeping chooks, a goat, a couple of sheep or even a pony and growing your own veggies is your dream, you would certainly appreciate the many attributes of this appealing Bottlebrush Road estate.
It’s a big property offered for sale at a realistic price, and it wouldn’t take much more to bring the home bang up to date and reap the myriad benefits of the lifestyle it promises.
The 1980s-built rendered brick and Colorbond home occupies a fully fenced 5521sqm (1.3 acre) block on the edge of town and among similar holdings. It sits back off the road behind neatly maintained gardens with a setting of mature native trees and a row of pencil pines along the drive.
Jarrah floors and spacious rooms with high, decorative ceilings characterise the inside of this home. An air-conditioned living area at the front opens into a family room, fitted with a big tile fire and with French doors leading out to the back yard. Off the lounge is the kitchen, with a dishwasher, plenty of cabinets and a gas cooker.
Four of the five bedrooms are double-sized with the fifth being a generous single, one bedroom has a built-in robe and access to a semi-en suite bathroom, which has been modernised. A second shower and separate toilet are conveniently sited near the back door, off the laundry.
Both front and rear entrances have ramps for easy access, and there’s a sizeable undercover patio at the front.
While this big home will no doubt be a welcoming sanctuary from a busy world, what’s outside is just as appealing.
A fence divides the block into two sections – one being the house block and the other a grassy paddock, ideal for horticulture or running a few head of livestock and with native vegetation for shelter. Water is plentiful from a 92,000-litre (20,000 gallon) rainwater tank.
Another major advantage is the triple-bay machinery and general-purpose shed with 3m-clearance doors and power connected.
Snap up this tidy property, put your own stamp on the home and you’ll be rewarded with a sizeable and highly desirable family estate for living the good life.
