4 x 1 family home on 5 acres in beautiful Bridgetown
If you have ever considered moving to the country to live a slower paced life, have a few animals, keep bees and grow your own food…. then here is your chance.
An amazing lifestyle property is available now. The owners are moving interstate so it would be possible for the new owners to walk in to a ready made farmstead with all the hard work already done.
The property consists of a cute cedar cottage which was relocated from Quindilup and has been renovated to include 4 bedrooms and a brand new bathroom/laundry complete with a Metters claw foot bath and rain shower head.
The owners have then extended onto the cottage an incredible chapel like open plan living space incorporating the kitchen, living, and dining areas, there’s even a record player nook area, and it’s all heated by a stunning wood fire place. This beautiful space all opens up through recycled French doors onto your north facing courtyard complete with gloriously productive vegetable garden.
The extension has been a journey of love for the owners who completed it using a variety of recycled doors and windows from some memorable places around WA. In fact the house was designed around the three incredible jarrah arched windows which were rescued from the infamous ‘Taj Mahal’ in Nedlands. (The $17 million mansion which was pulled down!), which gives the place a grand chapel like feeling. The beautiful wooden arched entry doors had a former life at the old Eaton Bakery and the kitchen was re-purposed from the original cottage.
This 5 acre property is perfectly positioned on a cul -de -sac road, 3 minutes from the centre of Bridgetown, which is a wonderful, welcoming, community- minded town well known for its artistic folk and annual Blues Festival. The town has the beautiful Blackwood River, great coffee shops, two supermarkets and a fortnightly produce swap and river markets. There are two lovely primary schools and a high school in town, plus a great library, hospital, skate park, recreation centre and a Leisure centre with a brand new outdoor pool.
The outside space of this beautiful property includes 2 olive groves, an established fruit salad orchard (including pistachios, macadamias, persimmons, figs, peaches, nectarines, apples, white sapote and much much more…) an amazing vegetable garden, worm farm, windmill, Spring fed dam and paddock and all of this backing onto beautiful state forest.
As if this wasn’t enough, there is also a huge powered shed, rustic chook yard, a wood shed, rain water tanks and your very own bee hives with 25 kg of honey due to be harvested in March.
There is also a cute retro caravan set up as a studio on the property.
A home made BMX track will keep the children entertained… that’s when they’re not bouncing on the trampoline or making dens in the forest with the kids up the road!
The house is also on the school bus route which is a short walk through the forest.
This is a truly unique opportunity to step straight into your ‘tree change’ dream. With slow days, a beautiful like minded community, drinking coffee on your verandah, watching the seasons change and reconnecting with nature. The air is fresh, the night sky is amazing and the only noises you hear are birds during the day, and a frog symphony at night!
You can grow your own food, collect fresh honey, collect eggs from your chooks and live more simply, connected to the daily joys of living a country life and everything this property has to offer.
