AS you turn down the tree-lined drive towards this country retreat, you will feel the stress of everyday life slipping away.
The 9.15ha property offers peace and tranquillity in the heart of the Margaret River wine region.
You can sit back and relax in your own private haven with marri, jarrah and peppermint trees or go out and enjoy the local amenities, including wineries, breweries, restaurants and beaches whenever you please.
The rammed limestone home has a wonderful rustic feel, with timber features throughout and floors paved with imported hand-cut stone tiles.
There is an open-plan living/dining/kitchen area with soaring cathedral ceilings.
In winter an open fireplace in the living zone is an ideal place to sit with a glass of local red, while a slow-combustion heater will keep the dining area lovely and warm.
A separate airconditioned lounge room is a cool place to sit in summer.
In the evening, open the doors and enjoy a meal or beverage on the covered deck with enchanting views of the landscaped gardens and pond.
A vine-covered, paved terrace at the back of the home provides another option for dining alfresco and there is also a deck overlooking the lawns under a large tree.
The home has three bedrooms, each with access to the deck, and two bathrooms.
The master, with ensuite, separate toilet and walk-in robe, is away from the children’s bedrooms and main bathroom, offering privacy for parents.
When guests come to stay, or if you just want more space for a games room or study, there is a mezzanine floor overlooking the main living area.
The property has a host of extras including an 8m x 6m Colorbond shed with room for a boat or caravan, three water tanks, double carport and underground wine storage.
