Anyone dreaming about privacy and living in a superb environment could not find a better place to live than this solidly built Western Red Cedar home that is invisible from the street. The home is positioned right on the high side of the street and is located up near the back of its extra large, near ½ acre, landscaped garden. Only the mailbox and the bitumen driveway disappearing into a sea of green indicates that there is actually a home somewhere up in there. It is only when you turn up the driveway that you see that really is a well terraced and landscaped garden where plantings established 14 years ago have now reached maturity and the home suddenly comes into view.

The driveway takes you up on the northern side and around past the back verandah to the carport and the extra parking and turning space so you can drive head first back down to the gate. It is just a few steps from the parking area to the couple of steps up onto the full length back verandah and in onto the slate floor of the wide dining area. There is also a second entry via the laundry. From that location it is hard to think that the seriously elevated home you saw on the way up is the same house you just entered! Smart people had enough sense to build the house over the steepest part of the block while retaining the natural land formation.

It might be a simple cottage, but inside it has lots of charm. High raked ceilings with exposed timber beams and solid timber dados match up with floating Jarrah timber and slate floors, blending all together to create a warm Alpine ambience. If Jacarandah Blue is not your shade, a quick repaint in the kitchen and living areas will soon change it to your preferred tones. The extra long lounge area with centrally positioned wood fire elevated on a full brick hearth with brick backing has ample natural light flowing in through 2 sets of ranch sliders and a southern end window. The expansive light toned slate floors shared by the kitchen, dining and laundry are a bit dull, but slate can be easily and quite cheaply resurfaced to come up gleaming like new again.

The Tasmanian Oak kitchen has quality leadlight features in the overhead cupboard doors as well as patterning on all the lower cupboards doors. A special space is provided for your microwave oven and you will find a place for your recipe books or bottles of wine beside it. There is a modern upright gas stove with rangehood above, a 1.5 bowl sink with beguiling green window view and a good sized fridge space too. The return bench looks out over the wide dining space and onto the verandah via the ranch sliders. View both bedrooms with their raked ceilings and on to the slate bathroom where just a polish of the slate and a bit of elbow grease will get it all spiffy again.

Now it is time to go back through the lounge area and out onto the front verandah. Right now the Tibouchinas are in flower against a backdrop of feathery Jacarandah foliage. Come next spring, the fresh new shoots on the Tibouchinas will be the foreground to Jacarandah Blue world in your own front garden. You can also see beyond your garden haven, out over a dense rainforest environmental corridor.

It would be so easy to find peace and contentment here amid the natural and man made garden beauty where the birds sing all day long.
