Sprawling across luscious, manicured gardens and lawns, this Darlington property named Kirkcaldy sits on 4459sqm and is rich in history and charm.
Although this spacious abode has been renovated, its traditional style and essence has been maintained inside and out.
“It’s one of the original Darlington homesteads from one of the early pioneers who came to the area, so it’s a beautiful 1920s stone homestead,” The Agency Property Partner Patrick Harper told West Real Estate.
“It’s real authentic, and it has a lot of history.
“It reminds me of being in Mount Lawley or Nedlands – the property has that sort of style, with the gardens and the landscaping.”
The central hallway offers high ornate ceilings, with an elegant archway adding yet another touch of traditional styling.
Flowing across wide jarrah floorboards throughout, the home is flush with period-style details such as stained glass features, decorative archways and a wide, welcoming verandah.
The formal lounge and dining room lead on from one another, each spacious and bathed in natural light courtesy of a multitude of ornate windows.
Next door, the modern kitchen stays true to its heritage but features streamlined appliances and ample storage and benchtop space perfect for casual dining, while two offices and a separate living room mean there is opportunity for separation when working or studying from home.
While the four minor bedrooms can be found on the top floor as part of the children and guests’ bedroom wing, the exquisite and private master bedroom, dressing room and luxurious bathroom is found on the ground floor.
Mr Harper said the home would appeal to buyers wanting a heritage-style abode steeped in Perth Hills history.
“It’s for buyers who want a property of significance or distinction and want to come to the hills to have a bit of class and a good bit of space,” he said.
The backyard area is extensive, with a pool and alfresco entertaining space setting the scene for entertaining family and friends comfortably and conveniently.
“The property is very private from the road – you can’t see it, so you can have a private lifestyle,” Mr Harper said. “It has a great outdoor entertaining area with a pool, and if you want to entertain, there’s lots of room for the kids to play. You could even put up a tennis court if you wanted to, as the lawn area is that huge.
“Whether you want to play cricket, tennis, have parties or if you just keep private, it’s very unassuming, because you don’t see it from the road.”
A half-hour drive from Perth CBD, the property feels a world away from the hustle and bustle, yet is close to amenities.
“Darlington is very community orientated and very arty,” Mr Harper said.
“You’ve got a big demographic in Darlington, and it has a very nice, laid-back community feel. It’s close enough to Perth but far enough away to still have that country feel.”
