With a rich history behind the brick and mortar, this 118-year-old home offers a chance to step back in time while enjoying the creature comforts of modern living.
Join owners like the Charles Ball family and the Australian National Airways as you revel in your own slice of history at the Australian Federation Queen Anne-style Invercloy estate – a residence built for community, service, family and love.
“This historic jewel shining brightly in the Western Australian heritage property crown makes her debut once again,” Ray White Dalkeith Claremont Sales Executive Thomas Jefferson Wedge said, adding that after changing hands various times, the current owners saw the home as a diamond in the rough and restored it to its heyday.
“The sellers have spent six years lovingly restoring this property – each room has a special touch put into it.
“The intended purchaser of this property is going to be an individual, couple or family that loves the history, stories and lifestyle of a former era of WA heritage, as well as a love for all of the effort and care of a restored, renovated and modernised estate without all of the work of having to do it themselves.”
Make your way up the intricate brick path past manicured hedging to a welcoming porch and traditional wooden front door framed by stained glass to witness the beauty sitting on the other side.
A grand receiving hall impresses immediately, boasting jarrah flooring and pressed tin ceilings adorned with a 20-light crystal chandelier.
To the left is a parlour room with pinks walls and yesteryear archways – a serene space to receive guests or a quiet spot to read a book and enjoy your morning cup of coffee.
Opposite is the living room, which is connected to the formal dining room, an area with enough space for a large dining table and grand piano should you wish to entertain.
While still keeping true to its classic roots, the kitchen has been updated with all modern conveniences.
“The kitchen features a cast iron original oil-burning chandelier that has been converted to electric lighting and a beautiful and massive 1350mm by 2440mm jarrah countertop,” Mr Jefferson Wedge said.
“There is also a beautifully tiled splashback, a deep double sink, a stunning archway to the breakfast nook, a gas rangehood and oven, large reverse-cycle air-conditioning, plenty of storage, a dishwasher, new period electric outlets and a large fridge recess for a fridge/freezer combo.”
A galley-style laundry connects the kitchen to the formal dining room and also provides access to the courtyard and alfresco with a barbecue, pond and mature fruit trees.
Moving upstairs, the opulent staircase crafted from jarrah leads to the first floor, which is home to the main sleeping quarters.
“The master bedroom is east-facing, capturing the gorgeous morning sunlight through the vaulted windows and portico arch,” Mr Jefferson Wedge said. “With a working fireplace, stunning ceiling roses and an elegant chandelier, this room captures opulence mixed with a serene sense of retreat.
“The adjacent ensuite is refreshingly modern with feature floor tiles and modern wall tiles, as well as a double sink and vanity and a rain shower.”
A gentleman’s room is equipped with a bar, an antique fireplace and a pool table you can purchase with the home.
Three large minor bedrooms round out the first floor with one bedroom boasting direct access to the family bathroom with a bathtub, a shower, double chandeliers and feature tiling.
The final bedroom is located on the topmost floor with its own bathroom and dressing room – a private oasis that would be perfect for a teenager.
