15 Phillips Street, Bridgetown, WA 6255
Large Home And Extra Accommodation On A Large Forested Lot In Town
A large solid and comfortable family home with 4 bedrooms and 1.5 baths, plus a separate 1 bed 1 bath cottage with its own private drive and parking. The package offers a fantastic lifestyle choice for extended family, or easy extra income. And all that on 6000 m² (close to 1.5 acres) of beautiful land with mature trees, fruit trees and flowering natives, an easy walk to centre of town.
The property has excellent mobile coverage and internet connectivity.
The block is zoned R12.5/20 giving forward thinkers a possibility of future development into up to 12 lots should you choose to go that way.
Both houses have had a huge program of upgrades over the last year, designed by owners who had planned to stay long term but are now forced to leave for family reasons. The property now presents a ready-to-go package for the fussiest of families, or a strong investment.
The main house, the cottage and garage were all owner-built to a unique design in the 1990s. The designer wanted to enjoy the trees, and birds that come to them, but also live in a comfortable home with large rooms and high ceilings. Buildings are Lysaght steel framed, with Hardiplank exterior on a concrete slab. Internal walls are brick, some of them handmade rustic brick, to maximise internal thermal mass - so the house is cool in summer and warm in winter. Windows are huge and the beauty of the block is with you at every turn, you will never want to close the curtains.
The main house is spacious, with 308m² under the roof, verandas all round, large windows, high 2.85m (9ft 5inches) ceilings and plenty of storage options. Included are four large bedrooms or three plus a study. The main bedroom has a large walk-in wardrobe/dressing room and two of the bedrooms have sliding doors opening onto the veranda.
The kitchen has been fully upgraded in late 2021, and features a good size walk-in pantry, and bespoke cabinets and drawers from a well respected local builder. Soft close drawers, Silestone tops and new European and Australian made stainless steel appliances including an induction hob, oven, hood and dishwasher all installed December 2021 and are still covered by up to 5 years' warranty.
A wood fire (this and the flue and chimney also new in 2021) in the family room warms the whole house. Solar HWS keeps the hot water bills down. The main bathroom includes a separate shower, bath and WC, and the large laundry has room for extra white goods and the second WC.
The separate cottage (47.2m² under roof) has a living/dining room/kitchen and separate bedroom with WC and shower room. It has been newly decorated and repaired in 2021. It can be accessed if required from its own separate driveway onto Roe street, giving privacy for guests or family, or ideal for a business run from home.
Between the two buildings is a garden and paved outdoor area under the wisteria covered pergola. A large (6m by 6m) double lock up garage, with a lean-to on each side for chickens and wood storage, complete the package.
Gardens include vegetable beds, flowers, decorative shrubs and native plants, and attract a huge variety of local bird life. The fully fenced block gives just enough privacy with still being close to all facilities. Neighbours are lovely and the historic town is super friendly with a great community feel.
Furniture in the cottage is included, most in the main house may also be available if required as separate negotiation. Recent building and pest inspection reports can be viewed by interested parties.
