Charming Picture Book Cottage
This home is currently available for private inspections only.
Ideally situated in the centre of Parkerville, this charming three bedroomed house oozes warmth and creativity. Owned and artistically and sensitively renovated throughout by world-renowned children's book author and illustrator John A Rowe, the full character and homely atmosphere has been nurtured and retained while creating a modern and practical space. From feature walls to art in high places you will be amazed by the simplicity and thoughtful additions throughout this bright and lovely property.
Gorgeous Jarrah floors and high ceilings are in keeping with the traditional 1950s stylings of this cottage, along with large windows to let in the pretty Hills light. Air conditioning is a newer but welcome addition and is useful not just through these warmer months, but as extra heating during chilly winters. Although the wood fire is a brilliant focal point and will see a lot of use on cold evenings. Enjoy a roast dinner with family by its warmth and then grab a favourite book and read into the night, snug on the couch with a wine in hand.
