Expressions of Interest
UtopiaThis extraordinary, award winning, Margaret River home wraps itself around a magnificent Karri tree. Over 200 years old, the tree's soaring grandeur engages with the grain and texture of the timber residence creating a truly stunning property.
The inspiring, natural environment is brought inside the home through the positioning of atriums, glass sliding doors, picture windows, louvers and periscope-like skillion windows. These also allow sunlight to be followed through the home at different times of the day offering a multitude of places to sit, reflect and soak up the serene surrounds.
The kitchen, which features a large island benchtop, breakfast preparation nook and pantry, is ideally positioned to connect with both the living room to the north and outside to the deck that wraps around the glorious central courtyard with limestone outdoor kitchen.
Generous bedrooms lie in the home's eastern wing accessed by a long hallway. The master bedroom enjoys all-day sunshine and a unique ensuite bathroom with additional outdoor shower. Bedrooms 2 and 3 open onto the deck surrounding the central courtyard and share a living room. The family bathroom has a lovely deep bath and atrium space.
Wall-linings use different grades of plywood: rough-sawn, painted black on the outside; and sanded, clear treated on the inside. Haybale insulation creates thick walls that buffer external temperature changes, and the floors and ceilings are also clear-treated hoop pine ply.
Additional features include a powder room off the western living area, a study adjacent to the hallway, laundry with enclosed drying area, heated towel rails, ducted vacuum system, underfloor heating, reverse cycle air-conditioners, double garage and two solar photovoltaic systems.
Ideally located in arguably the most sought-after street in Margaret River; the nearest restaurant is an easy 600m walk away, it's 1.7km to essential services and 1.9km to the top of the wonderful Main Street.
It is a pleasure to be able to offer a fortunate buyer this incredible opportunity to become custodian of a truly remarkable property.
