Just 59kms outside of the city, you’ll find a true hidden gem: a luxe, resort-style family home on a sprawling 46 hectares.
With a low-lying profile, the home seems at first reminiscent of a bunker (or a spaceship) – but boy, there’d be worse places to hunker down in. The property makes an impact from arrival, with spring seeing the house surrounded by spectacular wildflowers. As you approach the house, you’ll see your very own quarter size footy oval, surrounded by landscaped native plants. Yep – your own footy oval. Just imagine the family get-togethers!
As you slide open the front doors – jarrah, adorned with decorative steel handles – you can see one of the home’s other striking features: a garage and gallery, which also forms a breezeway. That’s one way to show off your wheels!
Inside, a huge open-plan living area is perfect for entertaining – not least because of that raised, gleaming, commercial-style kitchen, surrounded by glossy black tiles and firmly in the centre stage. No one’s getting stuck in the kitchen at your next dinner party, that’s for sure.
Curl up next to the open fireplace, or venture outside if the weather’s warm – there’s just as much on offer outside for entertaining. A huge alfresco area features a barbecue, firepit, and wood-fired pizza oven, while the other side of the house boasts a large solar-heated, saltwater pool – which also cleverly connects to the main bedroom’s private plunge pool.
Access to the main bedroom suite is via an L-shaped study and library (perfect for working remotely) which provides a large amount of privacy. With a huge connection to the outdoors, the suite has access to two courtyards – one that connects to the outdoor entertaining area, and another private courtyard that features the plunge pool.
As if all that wasn’t enough, the shed has been refurbished to include a cosy extra two bedrooms – so if the dinner party gets too rowdy, there’s plenty of room for overnight guests.
