HENLEY Brook Manor was built in 2004, with owners Sandy and Maggie Milligan seeking a country lifestyle with business potential within easy reach of the city.
Built in the French provincial style, they said the property sits majestically over the 1.89ha property, which includes established gardens and soaring trees with Henley Brook running through the grounds.
While the owners run a luxury bed-and-breakfast, the two-storey home is also ideal as a private residence.
It has multiple living areas, including two lounge rooms, a formal dining room with bar, and theatre room.
The magnificent kitchen can easily cater to the needs of a family or numerous guests and has integrated appliances, large range, granite benchtops, a scullery and a nearby butler’s pantry.
“We have had many parties and Scottish banquets,” Mr Milligan said.
“Our daughter’s wedding was a memorable occasion.”
Outside, an alfresco area looks out to the lovely gardens and Mr Milligan said it was a great place to gather with family.
There are four king-sized bedrooms, each with an ensuite and garden terrace or balcony.
A fifth bedroom, with bathroom, is set within a fully self-contained apartment, making a separate space for the owners while running the business or offering the opportunity for multi-generational living.
All bedrooms have garden views. Mr Milligan said the outlook from the apartment’s balcony was spectacular.
There is also a 150sq m studio with dedicated office spaces and two powder rooms that offer a range of options.
The property is just six minutes from the Ellenbrook shops, 30km from the CBD and within walking or cycling distance of local attractions.
Mr Milligan said the area was very quiet although the neighbours were always available if required.
He and Maggie are downsizing, providing an opportunity for new owners to continue the business or enjoy the home for themselves.
“It is a great place to bring up a family and house animals,” Mr Milligan said.
