‘Mayura’; the C1880 stone treasure with more than meets the eye and a story to tell on the doorstep of Stirling’s main strip
Smothered in stone and unassumingly set back from Milan Terrace to strike charm and intrigue, first impressions are not what they seem in ‘Mayura’; the C1880 villa with a story to tell on some 1460sqm, just a mere 300 metres or so from Stirling’s pulsating heart.
Step inside to see how the framed original title documents dot the 3.4m-high walls; proof that this solar-powered – and almost self-sufficient – abode was indeed one of Stirling’s earlier homes. And proud of it.
What starts with the polished pine floors, decorative ceilings roses, pronounced architraves and ornate fireplaces of a symmetrical original home ends in a semi-open extension and the realisation there are more layers – and levels – to this 3-5-bedroom home.
As it was in those early days, a simple floorplan serves a dining room, central lounge room and two front rooms with the scope to be anything you want. Today, one is a bedroom and the other a library with custom timber cases for your leather-bound stories.
In Mayura’s next chapter, the kids will embark on secret adventures in the large attic and the nooks and crannies of an ‘English’ and native garden with a beautiful old gum, frog pond, inquisitive koalas, an array of bird life, insect hotel and the enchanting serenity you didn’t expect this close to the CBD.
The gum is beautifully framed by the sash windows of a kitchen handcrafted of the recycled Jarrah and Oregon that once graced the original rear; replaced in 2002 by a terrace balcony and a lower level with three bedrooms, walk-in closet, upgraded bathroom and underfloor heating.
And so what you thought was a humble single-level cottage is rather the complete family abode with a future as bright as its past. Welcome to Mayura.
