Solid Home & Solid InvestmentProperty ID 1575547This solid Jarrah and steel frame home is also a solid investment with huge scope to add value with further improvements like a workshop, covering the massive deck with a patio roof and adding a north facing solar array. The property also lends itself to being utilised for permaculture so that you can become further self-sufficient.
With design features such as being solar passive and having a termite repelling steel and Jarrah sub-frame this beautifully presented home offers solid bamboo floors and presents a sophisticated yet relaxing haven for the modern family. Filled with natural light due to its rare northern aspect, this stunning home fully utilises its large 2,027sqm blue ribbon location which is actually the only other area in the valley that enjoys the same northerly aspect as the prestigious Araluen Estate.
The kitchen is the heart and centre of the home where, while preparing a meal you can entertain guests, look over the entertaining deck, pool, backyard, lawn and valley beyond. There is also a fantastic entertaining area next to the pool and under the deck that even has its own solide Sheoak bartop! The master suite also enjoys the views, is privately set at the opposite end of the house to the kid's bedrooms and has his and her walk in robes.
As you step out of the living room you are greeted by the biggest entertaining deck I've seen of termite resistant Merbau construction with an additional fantastic alfresco dining area and there is no better place to unwind after work or to entertain your guests than with a backdrop of the panoramic yet private views of the majestic Brookton Valley as well as city lights glimpses at night. Underneath the deck is yet another entertaining area which is level with the pool, keeps cool in summer and even has its own bar!
At 4 Howard Place you truly feel like you are on a much larger acreage property because it is whisper quiet and there is no-one to be seen or heard.
