WATCH THIS SPACE! EXCITING THINGS UNFOLDING... meanwhile private inspections welcome.

This magnificent, landmark home in the French Riviera style and with classically styled gardens, is situated in West Leederville’s much sought after Hill of Tara precinct.
Named “Carmichery”, it was built by the current owners as a generous and comfortable family home, and has been thoughtfully designed and fitted with high quality appointments throughout.

It’s one thing to be living so close to so many important amenities such as schools, sporting complexes, medical facilities and transport – as well as café strips and shopping options – but it’s quite something else to come home to this breathtaking home in its estate-like setting, complete with panoramic views over picturesque Lake Monger and surrounds.
