AMAZING VIEWS FROM ROCK SOLID HOME
13 Melrose Street
MOUNT MELVILLE, WA 6330
Featuring a sunny open living space with walls of washed render, big windows and terracotta floor tiles, this impressive home is reminiscent of a Mediterranean villa, and it is just as inviting.
The imposing home sits high on Mt Melville with magnificent views towards the Stirling Ranges, out to Mt Manypeaks, and around to King George Sound and the city.
Cleverly designed to sit atop a huge granite outcrop at the top of its 914sqm block, it is complemented by gardens dotted around the rocks to fit with the natural features of the site.
From the outside, the architecture makes a bold statement with rendered brick, stylish arched and corner windows, roof gables and a front deck.
Inside, it is just as appealing and promises a comfortable lifestyle with lovely indoor and outdoor living areas.
Steps lead up to a glass-panelled front door opening onto a hallway where a huge circular window opposite gives a view of the back of the property, and a high, raked timber ceiling mirrors those in the living room and the master bedroom.
To the right is the open living space of lounge and dining area, where panoramic views are shared with a timber deck leading off it.
With cabinetry of duck egg blue, a big gas cooktop, pantry and dishwasher, the kitchen is an appealing workspace off the living room.
The terracotta floor tiles continue along the hallway on the opposite side of the entrance hall, leading to the bedrooms.
At the front, making the most of views to the city through its corner window, is the generous master suite, complete with bathroom, built-in robes and a study or nursery.
There are two more double bedrooms – both with sliding doors opening onto a rear deck – the family bathroom, separate toilet and laundry.
Timber blinds, carpets in the bedrooms and warm decor add to the comfort of this appealing home.
The rear deck – a sheltered, private spot for a barbecue – has steps leading down to a lawn, which is fenced to keep the children in.
At the front, there’s a freestanding double garage with power and security lights.
Tall eucalypts at the boundary, a strip of native bush at the road and the granite boulders make a striking natural setting befitting a home of this calibre.
