Amber Springs Superb Rural Retreat
This superb 75 acre rural retreat has it all. Tucked away just a 15 minute drive from Augusta, 25 minutes to Margaret River, 10 minutes to Hamelin Bay and 5 minutes to Karridale is this picturesque undulating holding with permanent water from a spring fed soak, a windmill driven bore, winter creek and a 128,000 litre rainwater tank. Currently operated as a cattle breeding enterprise there is excellent farm infrastructure including 9 paddocks all with water troughs and electric fences, cattle yards, some paddocks suitably fenced for sheep grazing, pig pen, chook yard and a range of 15 different fruit and nut trees. Then there is the spacious north facing home overlooking the winter creek valley with stands of majestic Karri and pockets of pristine bushland beyond. The original homestead was completely rebirthed in circa 2006 by the owner, an award winning builder, into the current 4 bed, 2 bath home including a spacious open plan living dining and modern kitchen area all with tranquil rural vistas and opening onto a covered north facing alfresco entertaining deck. There is also a second quiet sitting room, part of the original home that features an open fire place, high ceilings and Jarrah floorboards which are also extensively used throughout all the other living areas of the home. Some features of the home include fully insulated walls and roof, solar hot water boosted by a wetback slow combustion heater, 3kw electric solar array panels, satellite NBN and TV, and numerous other comforts and appointments for modern living in a very special part of the South West. There are options galore for the separate accommodation unit, currently an office, the huge 243sqm extra high shed and two other sheds. All are set in fabulous fully automatic reticulated landscaped surrounds featuring granite stone retaining walls. This property could arguably be considered as a MODEL farm and retreat.
