Hobby farm prop­erty is full of char­ac­ter and charm

Narrogin Observer - - Living -

If you are han­ker for the coun­try lifestyle, a char­ac­ter home with self-con­tained unit and room for the whole menagerie, you will love this es­tab­lished 9.04ha hobby farm.

The prop­erty has been fenced into three pad­docks plus a fully fenced dog-proof house block, with a charm­ing home­stead and a one-bed­room granny flat and va­ri­ety of sheds and en­clo­sures.

Sur­rounded by lush gar­dens and tall tim­bers, the pic­turesque iron­stone and Color­bond home­stead is warm and com­fort­able and will take you back in time or let you lose your­self in the magic of its sur­round­ings and styling.

In­cor­po­rated in its de­sign are stylish re­claimed ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing or­nate fire­places, lead­light and stained glass doors and win­dows, jar­rah floor­boards and an eclec­tic mix of fit­tings en­hanc­ing the de­light­ful am­bi­ence.

A bay win­dow in the lounge takes in a lovely view to the rear pad­dock and the wood fire­place in this room is big enough to heat the en­tire home. Glass doors lead to the ve­randa, a favourite spot for bar­be­cues and en­ter­tain­ing.

The kitchen, fit­ted with tim­ber cab­i­netry and a Ray­burn stove, ad­joins the din­ing room and has ac­cess to the bath­room and laun­dry.

All three bed­rooms are good-sized dou­bles and the main bed­room has a walk-in robe.

A hall­way leads to the im­pres­sive self-con­tained stu­dio con­sist­ing of a sunny, open liv­ing room with a wood fire­place, and a sep­a­rate bed­room, bath room and kitchen area.

The pad­docks are mainly cleared, with pock­ets of nat­u­ral veg­e­ta­tion for shel­ter and good fenc­ing.

There are three chook runs with fox-proof fenc­ing, a hayshed, gen­eral-pur­pose shed and work­shop, shade house, car­port and dog ken­nels.

Water is plen­ti­ful from three dams and two 60,000-litre rain­wa­ter tanks. This highly ap­peal­ing prop­erty is just 36km from Albany and 18km from Den­mark. School buses to both towns stop nearby and it’s a few min­utes’ drive to the beach, fish­ing spots and lo­cal store.

Hav­ing been in the same fam­ily for decades, the es­tate is well es­tab­lished. Now it is time for new own­ers to en­joy the idyl­lic lifestyle and raise an­other fam­ily in nature’s play­ground.
