It is impossible to ignore the welcoming embrace of the character-filled, 2-storey brick and iron home. A delightful balance of modern convenience and rural charm, the home features rich timber finishes, an open plan kitchen/meals/family room, a separate study, studio space and 3 upstairs bedrooms, each with enchanting views of the surrounding paddocks, arena and stables.
A spacious mudroom with an adjoining bathroom, laundry and a separate W.C. is a practical feature of this working property. At the heart of the ground floor layout is an open plan kitchen/meals/family. The kitchen boasts ample room for a family-sized table, a 900 mm oven and 5-burner hob, and timber benchtops and cream timber cabinets. A cast-iron woodburning stove adds some country charm and supplements the heat of the slow combustion fireplace set in the corner of the family room. The large walk-in pantry set off the kitchen offers storage for appliances, wine and bulk goods. The central timber staircase creates a degree of separation between the kitchen/meals area and family room.
Set at one end of the family room is a sunken studio space, currently used as an at-home gym & ballet studio, this light, bright space is an ideal games room, formal lounge or, with a staircase leading directly to the main bedroom suite, a private parents’ retreat. All three bedrooms on the second storey enjoy stunning views across the property; you can even watch the horses from the bathroom as you brush your teeth.
The main bedroom suite boasts a walk-in robe, exposed beams, a pitched ceiling and easy access to a small balcony with views across the front garden and pool. Both of the junior bedrooms are charming, one with a large walk-in robe and the other a built-in. The family bathroom features a clawfoot tub, shower, double vanity and W.C.
The star of the show here is undoubtedly the emerald green paddocks – with several kept looking their best thanks to a reliable supply of bore water. Shaded laneways between the well-fenced paddocks provide shelter and make feeding, movement and personality management easier. With 14 paddocks – 6 with shelters – and another large a walk-in walk-out suitable for foaling or recovery, this property has the capacity for a considerable number of horses. A round yard, oversized arena, some paddock jumps and a small level paddock towards the rear of the property give you a venue no matter your equine specialty.
Ample space for horses, their gear and activities make this a horse lover’s dream. The brick stable complex boasts a wide verandah from which to soak in the beauty of your surrounds, 3 large, rubber-lined stalls, 2 tack rooms, a feed store, bathroom, and washdown bay with hot and cold water. Steps from the stables you will find a self-contained unit with a kitchen, living room and bedroom, ideal for guests or on-site accommodation for a stable hand.
Storing floats and other machinery is made easy thanks to a massive, powered and plumbed workshed with a concrete apron and adjoining lean-to.
Prepare to fall in love, once viewed this stunning property is impossible to forget and will set the benchmark for an authentic equine lifestyle in the Perth Hills.
