Glen Forrest – Original Charm Married With The New
Tucked away on a private three acre estate, this stone and tile built home was constructed in the 1900s by local stonemason Job Bailey.
Protected by the Edna Walling style gardens, this two storey home had a an architecturally designed brick and tile addition completed, which now offers a beautiful sense of light and space in its main living areas.
The old and the new meld beautifully in this home. Original wide jarrah floorboards and French doors, a wide balustrade verandah and under croft stone walled cellar, a feature leadlight in the entry hallway are all featured.
This five bedroom two bathroom blends the 3.4 metre high ceilings, ornate cornices and feature fireplaces with modern features such as an Essa stone bench top in the kitchen, and a freeform Gaudi inspired feature wall.
Perhaps the highlight of the home is the soaring glass atrium which looks over the solar heated below ground pool, and provides access to several other outdoor spaces.
This slice of history marries the old and the new and a beautiful and sophisticated way, paying respect to the original construction of the home.
