Home Isn’t a Place, It’s a Feeling

This ultra-stylish and utterly unique home backs onto the Harewood Forest reserve in the heart of the Scotsdale Valley, just 19 km from Denmark CBD.

It is in an enviable position with natural forests, beautiful trails like Mundabidi, an abundance of unique fauna and flora and popular tourist destinations such as award-winning wineries and restaurants on Scotsdale Tourist Drive, right at your doorstep.

The location was chosen with care to be central to the best surfing beaches – Ocean Beach roughly 25 minutes and Parry’s a mere 20 minutes’ drive away. The ex-Perth owners wanted a sea and tree change for their family – and that is exactly what they got.

The rural zoned property encompasses roughly 23ha/58 acres, mostly natural forest with only a few open acres near the homestead.  This means you can spend most of your free time enjoying the lifestyle you wanted, rather than working on the property.

The home is filled with rustic accents, warmth, ambiance and charisma that meshes superbly with its natural surrounds. The use of recycled timber seamlessly combines an innovative, modern design with exquisite vintage touches that invites you to unwind in comfort and style – with complete privacy.

The initial 3x2 built home was revamped numerous times over the past 10 years by the current owners (an interior designer and master carpenter) to accommodate the needs of their growing family. You can see and feel the love, planning, effort and skill that they’ve poured into this property to turn it into a very special sanctuary for themselves.

The two-storey homestead is nestled against a forest reserve which serves to bring the outdoors in and shelters the home from prevailing winds.

The ground floor consists of a spacious open plan lounge/dining/kitchen area with very high cathedral ceilings – a definite wow factor. The stairs to the loft area lead off from here.

The kitchen is modern, spacious and designed for entertaining. It boasts a dishwasher, built in oven, induction cook top, lots of cupboard and bench space and enough room for a couple of chefs to cook up a storm. There’s also a separate pantry and a handy breakfast bar.

A door leads directly outside to an extensive outdoor entertainment area featuring a large wooden deck, a koi pond, manicured gardens and a barbeque/pizza oven – made all the more special with the forest as a backdrop.

Adjacent to this is one of the most talked about home features in the whole of the Great Southern – a stunning lounge with a large wood fire and a very unique picture window.

This remarkable feature was even showcased in the Home section of The Sunday Times in 2014 as well as The Builders Magazine. The window seat is a favourite winter nook as it catches the northern sunlight. It’s the perfect place to curl up with a good book or listen to your favourite music, no matter what the weather.

The large, private master suite with its exquisite bathroom, large WIR and own private wooden deck is also picture perfect and will impress even the most discerning buyers. Massive windows ensure plenty of light and the private outlook over greenery and mature trees constantly serves as a reminder of how lucky you are to own a private estate in a setting like this.

There is also a second family bathroom cum laundry and a very interesting activity/office space near the glassed back door. It could be turned into extra sleeping space when needed. Two queen size bedrooms with robes and study/computer nooks completes the picture downstairs.

Upstairs you will find bedroom 4 that leads out to a delightful deck facing the northern forest. On the side of this bedroom you’ll find another room/open space – which can be used for whatever your needs may be. It could be turned into a spare bedroom or a lounge/activity area for whoever is lucky enough to enjoy upstairs all to themselves. It looks down to the open plan lounge/dining area far below.

There is normal and undercover parking, and a concrete and powered shed near the back door.

This home is currently run as very popular holiday accommodation business. Sleeping configurations are 2x queens, 2x doubles and 3x singles at full capacity. That means that it can sleep 10/11 people at minimum $250 per night depending on the amount of people. Here is a link for you to explore should you be interested in a very viable business. Note that we are selling only the home and land. The very easily managed potential of holiday accommodation should be considered a bonus. Should you be interested in continuing the business, please chat to us about your options.

Last but not least, there are established marron ponds on the property close to the house. The very manageable marron farm includes two main reservoirs and 21 grow out marron ponds that worked under a license. Once again, this is purely another bonus should the buyer/s be interested in this very lucrative business. It won’t be sold as a separate entity as it is part and parcel of the home and land. Should you be interested in continuing the business please chat to us about your options.

Please be aware that this property is still trading as an accommodation business, so give ample warning for a viewing. Kindly contact the exclusive agents Jess on 0410 631 335 or Michael on 0408 202 081 (based in Albany) for a private viewing or for more information. We look forward to showing you this amazing property, it’s sure to impress.
