IN one of the original subdivisions of the Yallingup Hills, this 2.01ha property comes with all the country extras.
It has jarrah and marri forest, a fully netted and fenced orchard and citrus grove with a selection of avocado, pear, apple, mulberry, peach, apricot, plum, fig, oranges, lemon, mandarin, lime and olive trees and room for chickens to roam, kids’ play area and 150,000L rainwater tank.
The cedar weatherboard home has rustic charm and all the creature comforts including reverse-cycle ducted airconditioning, a slow-combustion wood-fired heater and solar panels.
It has a roomy open-plan living/dining/kitchen space with local jarrah timber flooring, soaring ceilings with timber beams, a feature bush pole and views of the surrounding landscape.
The kitchen has handcrafted jarrah benchtops and custom-designed marri cabinetry, a 900mm electric oven, gas cooktop and dishwasher.
Outside is a spacious elevated timber deck with a built-in stainless-steel barbecue, storage zone and sink.
Sitting there of an evening and listening to the bush settle for the night would be a peaceful pastime and it is a gorgeous place to dine alfresco.
The home has three bedrooms with built-in or walk-in robes and views, and two country-style bathrooms – one has a claw-foot bath.
While it is a piece of secluded paradise, it is also close to the Dunsborough town centre and Geographe Bay and other local attractions.
