Property Description

BREATHTAKING VIEWS FROM EVERY WINDOW!

You probably heard the old saying, “Position is Everything”. 2460 Porongurup Road definitely offers this and so much more…

The odds of finding a property for sale on the slopes of one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world are very rare indeed. But what if you add UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS over the magnificent Stirling Ranges from most rooms in the home, your heated pool, your outdoor entertainment areas and more? It’s equivalent to winning the lotto.

Please click on the live drone video link. In less than three minutes, it will provide valuable information about this property and its surroundings.

The Porongurup Range rises from the landscape like an island surrounded by giant Karri trees. The 12km long, solid granite range is 670 metres high and formed when the Antarctic continent struck Australia around 1.2 billion years ago. The range is a world-recognised biodiversity hotspot for its rich diversity of flora and fauna species and contains many peaks and popular hiking trails like Devil’s Slide (670m) and Nancy’s Peak (644 m). Popular Castle Rock (558m) is literally next door. The Granite Skywalk has a steel viewing platform that allows panoramic views of the surrounding forest.

The protected Stirling Range, with its mountains and hills, is 60km wide from west to east and covers an area of 1,159 square km. Features include Mount Toolbrunup and Bluff Knoll – the tallest peak at 1,095 m for 1000 km+ in any direction and a popular tourist attraction. Bluff Knoll is considered the coldest place in WA and receives regular snowfall. The area is very popular for recreational activities, including bushwalking, abseiling and gliding. Orchids are at their best in August, September and October. Highlights include elegant mountain bells, magenta Queen of Sheba orchids (the holy grail of WA orchids), and the distinctive Stirling Range banksia. Both ranges are a delight for photographers. Even though the ranges are close, their biodiversity is completely different. Over 1500 plant species occur here, 87 of which are found nowhere else. This represents more than 1/3 of the Southwest’s known flora and includes more species of wildflowers than in the entire British Isles. Look out for the well-loved silhouette called The Sleeping Princess – it’s clearly visible from this property, too.
