Property Description

Quality lifestyle home on an ideal 5 acres

This very affordable, private lifestyle property is exactly what people dream about when exchanging a city life for the country.

A large 4×2 family home with two entertainment areas and all the mod cons, a 36m2 studio, a 4-bay 72m2 shed, a 6 x 3.6 m2 carport, and a very manageable 2.07 ha/5.12 acres with undulating valley views. The property is in town but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy the peace and serenity most of us crave when searching for the ideal lifestyle property.

Originally built in 1992, it has been upgraded and improved over the years.

Enter from the back into a separate mudroom that closes off from the house so no cold/hot air can enter when opening the back door.

Straight ahead you will find the air-conditioned lounge with an atrium dividing this area from the large kitchen. Right of entry you’ll find a formal dining room/music or entertainment room. You’ll immediately notice the impressive cathedral ceiling and exposed beams in the family/TV and kitchen area, and attractive slate flooring.

The light-filled, east-facing kitchen overlooks the land and boasts an electrical oven/hob, built-in ovens, a pantry, a hidden dishwasher and plenty of storage and work benches. An informal dining area conveniently fits into the space in front of the sliding door leading to the full-length, roofed verandah with views toward the Porongurup ranges.

A cosy and convenient family/TV room with a combustible wood fire is right opposite the kitchen.

Down the right corridor, you’ll find a full family bathroom, the laundry leading out to a roofed area with firewood storage, a separate loo and three bedrooms. The bedroom sizes are ample with two of these rooms roughly measuring 3.5 x 4 m2 and bedroom 4, still queen size, around 3.5 x 3 m2. All have built-in robes.

Left of entry, you’ll find a huge bathroom with a shower, basin and toilet. The private main bedroom with a reverse cycle air conditioner and walk-in robe measures roughly 3.5 x 5 m2 in total and enjoys privacy and lovely rural views over the patio with its café blinds.

From the patio side, there is outside access to an office and the fabulous studio measuring 6 x 6 m2. Whether you use this bright and cheerful room for arts and crafts/entertainment or bedroom 5 is entirely up to you.

The full-length verandah steps down to a lovely grassed area. The patio and 6 x 3.6 m2 carport near the patio are all brick paved for easy maintenance. A circular driveway passes the big shed, veers down to the carport and exits again behind the home.

The 12 x 6 m2 garage/work shed has four doors plus a personal entry (PA) door. Two sliders open to 2 parking spaces – with concrete floors and single-phase power. Some of the shelving will remain.

This home has a beautiful garden and many mature trees. Near the homestead is a convenient vege area while on the other side of the home is a mature, enclosed mix orchard with cherry, peach, apricot, plum, lime trees and grapevines.

The largest enclosure currently houses a few sheep, a water trough and an animal shelter. Mt Barker is well-known for horses with many riding trails, riding schools and even a racecourse close by.

It’s only 4 minutes’ drive/2.2 km to the centre of town, 33 minutes’ drive to Coles Orana in Albany and only 36 minutes’ drive to Denmark. Many lifestyle enthusiasts wanting a slower pace use Mt Barker as their base and commute to other towns for work or outings.

A few hundred meters towards Mondurup Rd you’ll find delightful bush walks, while the gorgeous Banksia Farm is only 400 m away.

Mt Barker is embraced by two ancient mountain ranges, the Porongurup Range and the younger Stirling Range and is a treasure waiting to be discovered. They offer walkers and climbers spectacular views, stunning trails and rich biodiversity.

Mt Barker is also well known for its beautiful roses, quality fruit and incredible wineries – many of them award-winning. It’s definitely a place filled with adventure and discovery but most importantly, it’s friendly and for now, still affordable.

This lifestyle property is rare and well-priced to attract cash and pre-approved finance buyers, so please book your private viewing with Jess now as tomorrow might be too late.
