Property Description

LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!!!!

Yes, the heading is a bit cliché – but seriously, HOW AMAZING IS THIS PROPERTY?!?!

This is the ideal lifestyle property if you’ve frantically been searching for an affordable escape and a slower pace of life. Not too big or small, extremely private and a moderate temperature all year round. There are enough little jobs to keep you reasonably occupied but of course, you can create even more work for yourself – but do your best to recall that exuberant feeling of having a very short “To Do” list before you start?

It’s only 2.28 ha/5.63acres of which 1.62 ha/4 acres are under magnificent Tingle, Jarrah and Redgum Trees, leaving you with the ideal 1-acre/.58ha or 4, 046 m2 clearing around the home, gardens and paddock to enjoy a laid-back, low maintenance lifestyle. There is more than enough space for chooks (2 coops), a variety of veges and an established orchard with apple, pear, apricot, plum, banana, citrus trees and a grapevine. The fenced paddock is ideal for keeping a few mischievous goats or if you want an easier life, up to 10 lazy sheep as lawnmowers.

A corner block with two tarmac roads is ideal for fire zoning. It’s also nice to know that your immediate, friendly neighbours have really lovely and well-maintained homes and gardens.

This property has everything you can dream of when looking for an escape. The home is utterly delightful, welcoming, light and full of character. Things don’t need to be precise here as it’s not that kind of home, so you usually don’t have to slip your shoes off before walking through the door.

Downstairs comprise of 2 bedrooms, a lovely bathroom with a skylight (shower over bath), a separate toilet with the cutest toilet roll holder and an old iron as a door stop plus a practical laundry with direct access to the washing line. The magnificent, large open-plan lounge/dining/kitchen is adorned with pictures, plants and happy colours and offers two entertainment areas plus a cosy fireplace and of course, spectacular views over the land and dam through the big windows.

The spacious kitchen forms the heart of the home. There are open shelves, a few drawers at the back next to the stove and fridge, and loads of storage space under the kitchen counter. There’s even a cosy breakfast bar at the end for two. A separate double pantry cupboard can be found around the corner, just before the stairs.

The front of the home is north-facing, so light and warmth pour into the home in winter (a massive plus point not to be missed), while it’s cool in summer. The front verandah offers tranquil views over the land and is ideal for bird watching, enjoying a coffee or sundowner or reading a good book. In the mornings you’ll often find the local kangaroo clan stretched out in the paddock, so it’s not unusual for a few curious youngsters to pop over to see what you’re up to.

You’ll find the gas bottles for the oven/hob and the gas-boosted solar water system on the side of the home. A small, private sauna is hidden around the corner too. There are two rainwater tanks for household use – a new one holding 27,500l and an older one with an approximate 50,000l capacity. The orchard and vege’s rainwater tank are fed from the shed’s roof – or you can connect to dam water.

The large upstairs bedroom offers a brand-new en-suite, built-in cupboards and a little private balcony overlooking the paddock. The fire flue protrudes through the floor ensuring a cosy room in winter, so you can comfortably sleep with your feet sticking out. In summer you can leave the balcony door open to cool down or use the reverse cycle air conditioner if you must.

Walpole North has an annual, long-term average rainfall of 1,013.9mm per year, so there is plenty of water here, including a natural winter creek through the bush. There is a sizable dam with a pump that can service the orchard and gardens and the bathtub in the paddock for livestock. A tap at the house and a convenient 3rd loo next to the shed are also serviced by dam water. A quick flick can switch the downstairs toilet over to dam water if you don’t mind the look of brown water. The pump’s operational switch is conveniently situated in the large 12×6 m2 shed next to the house.

Walpole is well known for its pristine, natural beauty and boasts some of the cleanest and healthiest air on the planet. Some of the best tourist attractions WA has on offer is literally around the corner – the Giant Tingle Tree is just a short walk away. It’s the oldest living eucalypt in the world at over 400 years, about 75m tall, and an astounding 24m in girth. Beautiful Circular Pool is a short drive down the road and of course the famous Greens Pool in Denmark is a leisurely drive away and ideal for a picnic. We’re surrounded by squeaky-clean beaches, pristine rivers, forests and national parks, so there is an abundance of flora and fauna. The native orchids and wildflower blooms are simply spectacular in early September to late October.

The Frankland River is one of only a handful of rivers in Australia that stays open to the sea all year round, ensuring excellent fishing, whatever time of the year. Don’t be surprised to find dolphins frolicking their way up the river into the forest. I was a non-believer until I witnessed it myself – an unforgettable experience.

Not only am I offering this gorgeous home at a song, but I’m also offering you a change of pace in an incredibly beautiful, upmarket setting. It’s a chance to actually FEEL alive, not just BE alive.

If you’re after adventure and thrills, you can take your pick from a very long list! Extreme sport abounds around here. Surfing, kayaking, fishing, boating, bicycles and motorbikes… The Bibbulmun Track is only 1,000 km between Albany and Kalamunda in Perth, too tame for you? If you want to laze around and do sweet nothing – absolutely, enjoy. I’ll chuck in the Kubota ride-on mower to make it even easier for you. Most of the furniture in the house as well? Deal. All you have to do now is sign on the dotted line, move in and put your own stamp on it.

If you’re a qualified buyer hoping for a reasonably quick settlement, then I sincerely hope that the extraordinary beauty and charm of this property, its position and of course the amazing price, are enough to spur you into action. The clock is ticking, so please don’t delay. I only need one buyer, and I sincerely hope it’s you.
