Horse prop­erty has stun­ning back­drop and ex­quis­ite de­tail

At­ten­tion to ev­ery de­tail has been made in the de­sign and con­struc­tion of this award-win­ning home, its out­build­ings and horse fa­cil­i­ties.

The prop­erty is set in more than 12ha against the in­cred­i­ble back­drop of the tow­er­ing Porongu­rup Range. Watch the horses and ever-chang­ing views of­fered from ev­ery room in this unique home. The large, high win­dows to the north of­fer a sense of be­ing a part of the majesty of the Porongu­rup Range.

In sum­mer the house re­mains cool with a north-fac­ing as­pect, lam­i­nated win­dows, in­su­la­tion, stone floor­ing and im­ported soft-glid­ing fans re­quire no ad­di­tional air-con­di­tion­ing for sum­mer com­fort.

The mild av­er­age sum­mer tem­per­a­tures range from 24C in De­cem­ber to 26C in Fe­bru­ary, of­fer­ing a per­fect cli­mate for run­ning an equine busi­ness.

The large open­ing bi-fold win­dows al­low for cool evening breezes and a real sense of out­door living. A large deck with views in all directions pro­vides an idyl­lic sum­mer en­ter­tain­ing area.

The house in­cludes three large dou­ble-sized bed­rooms, two bath­rooms, walk-in robe, study and laun­dry area.

The fo­cus of the large en­ter­tainer’s kitchen is a huge wa­ter­fall bench top and kitchen cup­boards fin­ished in di­a­mond gloss.

The walls in the living area have been ren­dered by a Den­mark ar­ti­san to give a won­der­ful and rus­tic glow to the area.

The horse fa­cil­i­ties have been built to last a life­time with no un­sightly wires or elec­tric­ity. There is am­ple wa­ter, with two 100,000-litre rain tanks and a spring-fed dam that grav­ity feeds the horse wa­ter troughs.

A work­shop and ma­chin­ery shed is along­side the rus­tic or­chard and chook yard.

When not busy with the horses, take time out to en­joy the fa­cil­i­ties of the Porongu­rup area, meals and tast­ings of­fered by the many bou­tique winer­ies pro­duc­ing de­li­cious cool-cli­mate wines from the Porongu­rup area, or take a walk from the prop­erty up the im­pres­sive Nancy’s Peak or Devil’s Slide in the Porongu­rup Na­tional Park or ex­pe­ri­ence the im­pres­sive Cas­tle Rock walk­way.
