STEEPED IN SIXTIE'S STYLE
10 Halifax Street
Mount Melville, WA 6330
Polished jarrah floors, high ceilings and timber windows all combine to lend delightful character to this neatly maintained home.
Set high on Mt Melville on a 622sqm lot, it’s in great shape inside and out and takes in a far-reaching outlook to the Porongurups from the front and to the hills of Gull Rock National Park at the back.
The 1960s home displays charm and warmth to enhance everyday living, tastefully teamed with all the right amenities for entertaining.
At the front is the lounge, a comfortable room with a built-in wood fire and a picture window making the most of the sun from its north-facing aspect.
Complementing this at the rear is an enclosed sunroom overlooking the leafy back yard, and a fabulous sheltered deck for cranking up the barbecue on summer evenings.
The kitchen is a big room with electric cooking, lots of cabinets and a pantry cupboard with handy pullout drawers for easy access. Next to this is the dining room, then a hallway to the three bedrooms.
A wall of built-in robes with hanging and shelving space features in the king-sized master bedroom, and the other two bedrooms are good-sized doubles. All share the nearby bathroom, which has a bath, shower and vanity, and the toilet, off the laundry at the rear.
Good blinds and clean, white décor enhance this home’s natural beauty.
The private, fenced back yard is terraced with a lawn, a shed, garden beds and vegetable patches, while the front is mostly in lawn with water-wise plants and a few native trees.
A carport next to the house, undercroft storage and a little workshop or potting area are other notable features.
This is a highly appealing home for owner-occupiers appreciating the charisma and ambience of a solidly built cottage, and for investors considering its potentially excellent returns as a rental.
Both will recognise the benefits of this property’s location a short distance from town, schools and the coast.
