5 Ward Avenue Greenmount 6056 WA
"Kallevig" (circa 1940)
Originally known as "Jarrah Cottage" in the earlier 1900's, this gorgeous residence was renamed "Kallevig" after the family name of the owners who occupied the home from 1947. The lady of the house was the mother of a prominent West Australian artist and was a cultured and elegant woman and the home of her and her Norwegian husband reflected this grace and style. A tribute to its current owners, this iconic residence has been lovingly and thoughtfully renovated and extended in keeping with its heritage. Reminiscent of an English Manor and with an air of grace and majesty, this stunning home is poised on the Darling scarp in one of, if not, the finest Greenmount locations. With panoramic views, and a wonderful sense of history and authenticity this residence is one of a kind.

As you enter the gates to this property you can almost feel the sense of history oozing from the very pores of this grand old home. Perfectly presented and renovated with the utmost reverence for the heritage and style of the home, this is a home that will capture your heart.
Enter the home to be greeted by a long hallway which spans the width of the house. A beautiful formal lounge with a double-sided feature gas fireplace takes centre stage to the right. Across from this room is the library which would also make a nice sitting room, with an adjacent office. A lovely modern powder room which is cleverly tucked away provides amenities for this wing of the home.
The hallway flows through to the large open kitchen/meals and family area which shares the double sided fireplace. The kitchen is spacious and has a gorgeous country feel while being modern and practical in design. It incorporates a European laundry and has double french doors which lead directly out to a pretty paved area with views to the rolling lawns below.
With plenty of space for couches as well as a large dining table, this area beckons family and friends to congregate.
The main bedroom suite is accessible from stairs leading from the library. It is nothing short of palatial in size and has double french doors which lead directly out to the wide Jarrah verandahs which span the top and bottom storey of the home. With a beautiful ensuite and a separate parents retreat, you may be forgiven for never wanting to leave, especially with the stunning views on offer from this spectacular vantage point.
A second large master suite or guest room with its own ensuite, is located upstairs via a separate staircase and also features double french doors to the verandah. At the foot of the stairs are the remaining two bedrooms which share yet another semi-ensuite family bathroom.
Accessible from the lower verandah is a studio which has been cleverly designed to utilise the space above the single garage. This would be a perfect teenagers retreat or is ideal for an artist.
Both verandahs overlook a gently sloping expanse of lush lawn which is dotted with mature trees, roses and a citrus grove. A delightful summer gazebo which is resplendent with fragrant star jasmine takes pride of place and would be an idyllic place to relax and enjoy the verdant surroundings.
Sure to delight the most discerning of buyers who is looking for a home of distinction and elegance, and with a host of other features including a powered work shed, two water tanks with 37,000L capacity, solar PV system and solar hot water, "Kallevig" must be viewed to be fully appreciated.
