Wonderful retreat to the country
WHEN it comes to country getaways, the aptly named Karridale Retreat could just about have it all.
There is the location on the outskirts of the Margaret River townsite and a short drive from the beach and river.
The property is 1.43ha with established gardens around the home, large trees, abundant birdlife and gorgeous views.
It also includes a separate studio where you can enjoy some peace and quiet or artistic pursuits and a BMX track.
The home site is like a gift that keeps on giving.
There is the home itself with an open-plan living area with timber flooring, raked ceilings, leafy views, a stone-clad fireplace between the living and dining zones and a well-equipped kitchen with stone benchtops, breakfast bar, walk-in pantry and ample cabinetry.
There is also a stone bar with windows opening to the terrace.
Outside, there is plenty of room to entertain or dine alfresco on the terrace, with steps leading down to the gardens and firepit or near the solar-heated pool.
Inside, a second living area with built-in storage opens to the pool area.
The home has four bedrooms with walk-in or built-in robes and three well-appointed bathrooms.
The grounds also include a playground with cubbyhouse and a 12m x 9m Colorbond workshop with roller doors, fireplace, lighting, fitted wall rack and rafter storage. Whether you want extra space to entertain, a man cave, gym area, sheltered play area or space to tinker – it has plenty of room for everything.
Other features include ducted reverse-cycle Daikin airconditioning, solar panels and solar hotwater system and a 7.2-star energy rating. ■
