A HOLIDAY home or sea change does not have to mean a move to the South-West.
Known as Banksia Grove, this Bouvard residence offers you space to get away and enjoy a coastal lifestyle just one hour from Perth.
The property is close to beaches and the Peel Harvey Estuary, where you can swim, fish, go crabbing or take out the boat or jet ski.
You can also play golf at The Cut, visit local wineries – yes, they too are not limited to the South-West – and pop into Mandurah for a meal or to shop.
The limestone home has an open-plan living/dining area with timber flooring and a kitchen with modern stainless-steel appliances, stone benchtops and walk-in pantry.
There is a slow-combustion wood-fired heater in the dining zone and doors in the living area open to a veranda where you can sit and enjoy the fresh air and tranquillity.
The master bedroom is separate from the children’s bedrooms, offering parents some peace and privacy.
It has built-in robes and an ensuite, and is near a theatre room that could become a parents’ retreat.
The three other bedrooms also have built-in robes and there is a study/storeroom that could be used as a fifth bedroom.
The grounds include an outdoor bar, external bathroom for rinsing off after trips to the beach, a fire pit, barbecue, gardens with extensive lawn and reticulation, bore, vegie tubs, olive tree and grape vine.
There is also plenty of room on the 2.17ha property for all the extras including a large brick shed with three-phase power connected and alarm, parking for a caravan and boat, chicken shed, dog house, two garden sheds and a sea container.
