Enchanting 'Boonooloo' Homestead (c1892): Sub-Division Potential

Sheer exquisite delight with this glorious HISTORIC property originating in 1892 and located on a 4247sqm block (approx 90m frontage) zoned R5 offering SUB-DIVISION potential to two lots, subject to approvals from the relevant authorities.

Priceless but Priced ! This may be a once in a lifetime opportunity.

This property will be considered for it's many options with this magnificent parcel of land in the highly desirable ORANGE VALLEY and our HERITAGE LOVERS will salivate.

'Boonooloo' has retained authentic features including PRESSED IRON ceilings and internal walls, JARRAH floorboards, a beautiful FIRE-PLACE mantel in the bedroom, STAINED GLASS, a METTERS stove and double troughs in the wash house. The old STONE car shed is a delight in the beautiful rambling gardens with historic plantings including the most beautiful Angel Trumpet trees with their huge cream fluted flowers exuding an intoxicating FRAGRANCE.

Envelop yourself in this large rambling homestead consisting of about 16 rooms offering comfort and grace. The large country kitchen and huge pantry form the heart of the home and optional living, family, dressing, study and dining (or 4th and 5th bedrooms) are complimented by 3 dedicated bedrooms and the huge federation bathroom with it's CLAW FOOT bath and DRESSER vanity.

It is recognised that our glorious 'Boonooloo' would benefit from some work externally to restore the 'Victorian Vernacular' architecture and allow her to survive for centuries to come. However, she is most certainly habitable, is currently LOVINGLY occupied and very comfortable.

'Boonooloo' an Aboriginal word meaning 'ever running water' was the name English born Hills pioneer, Richard Urch chose for his 1892 wattle and daub homestead. However, the gushing creek has now receded to a damp water-course.

Called 'The Magic House' by the Urch and Peet family children in the early 1900's, the families went to 'Boonooloo' for holidays. A horse and buggy would meet them from the train to Kalamunda and drive them to 'Boonooloo' stopping to water the horses at the trough on Canning Road. The children loved the 'MAGIC' of the property.
