PEACE, TRANQUILITY AND BEAUTYOnly 1.6km and three minutes from Kalamunda, and 35 minutes from the CBD, this five acre property is heaven for horse lovers, gardeners, those who love nature and beauty, and seekers of peace and quiet.
A stunning 100 year old 3m stained glass door and surrounds graces the entrance to this much loved, rambling red brick family home. Features include 3m ceilings, original Jarrah floors, four bedrooms, lounge, a large downstairs rumpus room, two bathrooms and three toilets. Other features include a garage and carport, large covered patio, two storerooms, solar HWS, insulation and a lounge room wood fireplace for winter heating.
Outside, sit on the patio, draw in the peaceful atmosphere and look over the green paddocks, your horses grazing quietly and your children riding their ponies in the 60m x 20m fenced arena, as well as the ornamental deciduous trees and sweeping views of Piesse Brook Valley.
In fact horse lovers are wonderfully well catered for, with the farm being divided into five paddocks (with mainly steel piping and white sighter wire fences).
The large 17m x 7m steel shed is sufficiently high to provide parking for a horse truck, as well as a float. It also contains five stables as well as a large brick feed and tack room, along with a concreted hosing bay.
The Olympic sized arena is also fenced with steel rails and white sighter wire, and is reticulated for summer dust control.
Complementing the arena are numerous wonderful bush trial rides available only a kilometre away in the State Forrest. (The wildflowers in season and year round views are something special!)
Rounding out the equestrian facilities is a 10m, rubber lined, 1.8m high round yard for teaching learners to ride in safety, as well as for breaking in horses.
The perennial grass paddocks are all reticulated from a large dam filled by run-off from Hummerston Road.
Gardeners are also well catered for, with long established flower gardens as well as a large fenced terraced vegetable garden area.
For those who love poultry and producing their own eggs there is a large, 1.8m high fenced poultry run and shed.
Spread across the property also are 11 large pecan trees and three macadamias, which complement the numerous ornamental deciduous trees (claret ash, quince, crepe myrtles, Jacarandas and several European pears) in providing blazes of colour during winter, spring and summer. There is a Pecan tree, two Lemon trees and a Mulberry tree.
And finally is the cottage, a one bedroom dwelling with large verandahs, which is built in a colonial style sympathetic to the main house and which takes in stunning views. Currently this cottage is rented for $290.00 per week and finding tenant who seek peace and tranquillity is never a problem.
