This magnificent 58ha (150 acre) property is rich in history and located at the top of Whitby Falls on the Western Scarp of the Darling Range. Given its present-day name back in 1954 by Colin Pruden, it has been owned by the family company of Ken and Lorraine Court and their children since 1974.
Originally comprising 500 acres it became one of the states leading stud farms, breeding thoroughbred horses and prize winning Simmental cattle.
It is situated only 50 kilometres to the Southwest of Perth and is set high on the escarpment commanding spectacular views of the Perth City skyline and over the coastal plain.
There are heavy red loam soils with well established pasture and there are some magnificent mature trees throughout the property which include both red and white gums.
The magical Manjedal Brook winds through the property and this is complimented by a lovely gazebo which is the perfect setting for family picnics and BBQ's.

It offers a functional, luxurious lifestyle for the whole family and is divided into three separate 'pods' with every room being designed to take advantage of the natural light and the breathtaking views this amazing property has to offer.
