When built, Orr House, Wembley, was surrounded by bush and farmland extending down to Herdsman Lake and was one of the original homes built on the eastern (higher), thus, more prestigious side of Reserve Street, on land in the "Perthshire Estate". The stately home itself was built on the high point of the block affording it views of the lake.
A landmark for almost a century, recognised as being built circa 1922, this graceful dame is coming to market for the first time since 1966, having been home to only 2 families in its lifetime. Orr House is a stunning example of the grand homes built in Wembley in the interwar period. Substantial in scale, Orr House complements its traditional quarter acre holding (1088 square metres) perfectly. The zoning is R20.

The residence is an elegant single storey, red brick home with a hipped roof overhanging a wide decked veranda. The pair of red brick chimneys speak of a bygone era before air-conditioning was a standard feature in homes.

The grand entrance featuring leadlight glazing is accessed by a flight of steps which leads into a wide hallway extending the length of the main part of the home and leading to a large dining room. Flanking both sides of the hallway are four substantial rooms, two on each side. Three of these rooms have been used as bedrooms with the fourth used as the family sitting room. The sense of space is enhanced by 11-foot (3.3m) ceilings throughout the main part of the home.

The kitchen serviced the needs of a large family and features a long bank of cupboards, room for a table and a free-standing electric stove. A large room at the rear of the home served as a double sized bedroom with a study overlooking the rear garden. The home has two bathrooms, a big laundry room and ample storage rooms/sleepouts which are accessed through the bedrooms.

The gardens have been lovingly tended; the front lawn cascades down to the road and is flanked by a row of terraced planters on the right-hand side of the block featuring a stand of mature magnolia trees. The rear garden is perfect for entertaining with its expansive paved area, which includes the original outside brick privy, and a manicured lawn edged with native trees on one side. The entire property is reticulated from a bore which ensures a lush garden without the water bills.

Orr House is grand in all respects, and as befits such a stately house it has been lovingly maintained over the years by the current owners. Welcome to Orr House, Wembley - there is much more to talk about this magnificent home - email Tim or Charlie for a fact sheet.
