HOME ON THE HILL
13 Victoria Street
MOUNT MELVILLE, WA 6330
A tasteful blend of character features and modern conveniences gives this Mt Melville residence wide appeal.
The attractive two-storey building is really two houses in one – a comfortable, spacious family home on the first floor, and downstairs, a separate flat for family members to live independently, which would serve equally well as guest accommodation or an Airbnb short-term let.
Reached via steps from the carport, the main home has been renovated while retaining its 1960s charm, including beautiful polished jarrah floorboards in the living areas and hallways, decorative ceilings and retro etched glass in the door from the hall to the living room.
It was planned to make the most of the lovely outlook towards Mt Clarence and parts of the town with a big window in the lounge, while the view on the northern side reaches as far as the Stirling and Porongurup Ranges.
Open living consists of the lounge, dining area and kitchen, with attractive cabinetry and a dishwasher, and a window over the sink with a view to please the cook.
This space is complemented by a lovely sunroom or hobby room at the back, and a generous, sheltered rear deck, with plenty of space for the barbecue as well as for socialising with friends and family while the children play in the enclosed garden below.
A patio at the front allows a second outdoor seating option to watch the world go by.
All three bedrooms are doubles, and the master includes a wall of built-in robes. Finished in sparkling white, the bathroom has a bath, vanity and floor-to-ceiling tiles, and the toilet is separate.
Even the laundry is a sizeable room with an adjoining storage room.
The warm jarrah features evident throughout most of the first floor continue to the staircase down to the lower level.
Here, the flat also has its own access through sliding glass doors from the carport, and a back door to the yard. It is a good-sized carpeted bed-sitting room opening onto a compact kitchen and then to a bathroom with shower, vanity and toilet.
Also on the lower level are two doors accessing handy undercroft storage.
This is a generous residence allowing family members to spread out and work, relax and play – with each other or in solitude.
Attractive gardens and lawns at the front and rear set off the home, which has a double carport and occupies a 616sqm block just 2km from town and within easy reach of schools and sports grounds.
