These are the three key factors when buying Real Estate in the West.
73 Joel Terrace Mount Lawley has uninterrupted views across Banks Reserve and beyond to the majestic Swan River. The tall mature trees, well laid out native gardens, a flowing stream and beautiful open grasslands creates the feeling of living in the country rather than being within walking distance of a capital city.

This iconic striking house has had three transformations. The cottage was originally built by Robinson, land owner and owner of Killowen House now within the grounds of St John of God Hospital, located at the end of Joel Terrace. He built it for a staff member. Ken Waldron, renowned architect of the Quarry Amphitheatre designed the first renovation then to maximise the beautiful views, verandahs were added on each level around three sides of the house. Aspects of all three designs remain in the structure of the building. In addition, a matching and complementary hexagonal turreted billiard room was built above the carport. The beautiful electric gates were built and designed by Levon Shamison, craftsman to Persian Royalty. He lives and works in the Perth hills.
This home is a pleasure to live in. It is light and bright with large windows letting in an abundance of natural light. The ground floor has two bedrooms, the main bathroom and an open plan kitchen dining area leading out onto an alfresco living space next to the tennis court. The court hasn’t been used for many years. It is reticulated and only requires top dressing and a good watering.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. Each bedroom has access to the verandahs through double doors. Beautiful timber balustrading surrounds the verandahs on both levels.
The house has been a family home for forty eight years and the time has come to give someone else the opportunity to live in this magnificent area. A developer once said with arms spread wide, as he looked across the parkland opposite-’why should ‘You’ alone have all this?’
