Step back through time at Eden, a quirky Australian cottage built in the 1940’s with beautiful feature details including pressed tin, jarrah floorboards and high ceilings plus bonus workers cottage built circa 1907. To own your very own slice of Kalamunda’s past, this home is a must-see for history buffs, renovation enthusiasts and anyone who appreciates unique properties.
The Main Residence:
Welcome to Eden, built in the 1940’s this three bedroom, two bathroom cottage is testament to the quality of buildings of the era. Ascend recycled brick paved steps to the sweeping front veranda, overlooking bush style front gardens. The deep colour of aged jarrah floorboards offsets playful pressed tin in the long central hallway, with bedrooms to one side and living spaces to the other. The cosy lounge room lets in lots of light through timber framed windows, and the original fireplace has been fitted with a gas bayonet for modern convenience. Moving through to the kitchen, a feature gnarled tree trunk supports the central beams in the open plan dining and kitchen. The kitchen may require renovation however the space is well laid out with power and water points, so just needs your vision to suit your style!
All three bedrooms are large, with high ceilings and decorative cornices, easily accommodating modern king or queen size beds. While there are no built-in-robes, as to be expected of the age of the build, there is plenty of room to add in wardrobes as required. Two bathrooms provide plenty of space for the morning rush. Bathroom one is large with toilet, separate shower and bathtub plus original slate flooring and also houses the laundry. Bathroom two is a real talking point, with a custom-built shower from an old, corrugated tin water tank taking pride of place, plus toilet and vanity.
The Workers Cottage:
An original workers cottage built circa 1907, this little bonus home sits at the rear of the property. Divided into three spaces and instantly cool upon entry thanks to thick stone walls, this could easily become a thriving Airbnb, a space for guests, teenage retreat or artists studio. A small kitchen, dining space and functional bathroom share the first room, while the second room has a huge open fireplace and the third room lots of light in the afternoon from its west facing windows.
The gardens surrounding the house and cottage are bush style, with lots of native plants and animals making their home here. Playful, friendly bandicoots and quendas are regular visitors, as are a myriad of native birds who come to feast on flowers, nuts and seeds of the plants. A single car brick garage has potential to become a great workspace and has side access to the rear of the property.
