Crea­ture com­forts in your ru­ral wonderland

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Liftout -

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. ■
