Rural Retreat in the Valley


Set on an 830sqm lot, these big blocks in The Valley are getting harder to find - especially when they have an abundance of mature fruit trees, wonderful established gardens and a big, extended 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom family home.

The entrance to this property is marked by the red letterbox sitting under a wonderfully romantic old pepper tree. The garden has been neatly sectioned by limestone walls and steps, and a timber walkway takes you to the house through some of the biggest fruiting trees on the block, including a soaring avocado. The welcoming front verandah is the perfect place to sit and enjoy the garden, bird life and the connection to the friendly street.

Step inside and you are immediately aware that this home is different. It's open, free flowing and almost organic in the way in soaks in the rear gardens through giant picture windows. Recycled timbers cleverly define the living, dining and kitchen areas. Lovely, old jarrah floorboards, an original fire place and vaulted, exposed timber ceilings blend together to give a unique and soulful style - both grand and down-to-earth.

A cosy lounge room opens out to the main dining area, which takes the commanding position under the first of two oversized windows. Designed for generous entertaining, a dining table for the largest of family events fits perfectly alongside the glass. Step up to the kitchen, where a giant timber-slab island bench is the centre piece, providing plenty of space for cooking with and for family and friends, informal meals and daily family gatherings.

A pair of hand-carved, Moroccan antique doors provide a theatre-like entrance to the main bedroom suite and ensuite bathroom; fitted out with rich old timbers, stone basin, and a corner spa bath looking out to the garden. This bedroom also features a high, vaulted ceiling, built in robes, and beautiful big windows with a view. This is a parents' retreat that is well separated from three good-sized bedrooms and the gorgeous family bathroom the other side of the home.

Outside, great timber planks have been used to create a large entertaining deck under a timber pergola. There are several garden rooms and pathways leading you to discover different zones. The highlight is your very own pizza hut - a grand pizza oven in its own garden room, which sits between the house and the excellent chook-shed and vegetable gardens. A grand set of limestone steps takes you up to an open lawn, garden shed, and a further pergola covered in vines with a pond and water-feature in the centre. This lush, productive garden is a paradise, made so by the sense of space and the abundance of mature fruits trees. Just when you had thought you had discovered everything, another pathway leads to a cool hidden cellar underneath the home.

43 Simper Crescent is well-positioned close to Fremantle, parks, schools and transport. Many young families are enjoying the community and spirit of The Valley, buying the older houses on big blocks to create delightful homes and garden havens - this one is already established and ready for you to move in and enjoy the fruits!
