A BIT OF HISTORY ON THE HOME - circa 1900's. A former owner, who was considered a bit of an Artisan, and demolished old houses for a living kept some of the more treasured pieces. So, the home was crafted from pieces gathered from Western Australia's architectural history. There are one of the three doors from the garage of Bonnie Doone - Mandurah's grandest residence from the 1920's, strategically placed as a feature wall in the "main living zone". Many of the exposed posts and beams that hold up the soaring, almost 5-meter-high, ceilings were saved from the Ferguson Tractors Factory on Whatley Crescent in Maylands. The pressed tin walls were salvaged from houses and shop awnings in the Victoria Park area. The cedar weatherboard cladding for the home came from a film set in the Midland Railway workshops. The box-lock and ebony hardwood beehive handle on the main bedroom door are rare and wonderful find dating back to the Victorian era.
