It was after World War II, probably the late 1940s or early 1950s, that the Spadaccini Family travelled half way around the world to settle in Northam and create their new home. They were builders and there were 5 brothers and each had a unique set of skills. They established a company called Spadaccini Bros and it didn’t take long for their reputation to precede them. They were a good, hard working, reliable family and were well known and loved for their solidly constructed buildings.
No 47 Throssell Street is the house that brother Joe built in 1966 as his own family residence. Now’s your opportunity to purchase the house that the builder built for himself. I bet even more love and care went into this house.
The house stands up high and proud on its block of land. There’s some screening fern shrubs along the front boundary fence that, if trimmed down just a little, would allow a beaut rural view from the front patio across the road to Martin’s farm in the distance.
There’s a really wide entrance hall that showcases the stunning polished floor boards so popular of the era. A wide opening from the front hall reveals a massive lounge room with front patio sliding doors that brings the outdoors indoors.
Around the corner is a dining room. It’s big and if you don’t like dining formally then convert it to something else; if you’re a work-from-home tradesperson or professional consultant it would make the perfect home office particularly with its linking doors to the right-hand-side verandah and driveway (this is where your clients will call on you), the lounge, kitchen and 4th bedroom.
Using the formal dining as an office won’t compromise meal times. The kitchen, as you would imagine, is gigantic too and affords plenty of space for the dining table. There are cupboards galore and a good view of the backyard from the wide window.
On the left side of the entrance hall and passage are three bedrooms, all with good proportions, and the family bathroom.
The back verandah is long and wide and perfect for entertaining. Who needs a patio? The laundry is at the end of the verandah that contains, like nearly every Spada home, an additional shower recess.
The block is a good old fashioned quarter acre, 1 048sqm in fact, but don’t think you’ll be forever watering lawns and gardens or poisoning weeds as a lot of the block in under concrete drives and paths.
The right-side driveway has a carport, the left side has lockup garage.
You’re going to love this house when you see it so ask Steve or Lara for an inspection soon and make an offer before someone else does. You don’t want to kick yourself, do you?
