From the time you turn into the tree lined driveway of this 1.1ha block, you'll become aware of how individual this property is.

A circular driveway brings you to a beautifully-designed Georgian influenced residence.

It's only upon entering the home that you can truly appreciate the charm, character, attention to detail and extensive use of natural materials including marri, limestone, marble, flame jarrah and travertine.

The light and airy open-plan living area features Canadian solid fuel heating, handcrafted marri built-in furniture, an island bench, five-burner stove and walk-in pantry.

It flows through to an expansive alfresco area with views across a well-tended lawn to the trees beyond.

Upstairs three generous bedrooms all with handcrafted built-in furniture feature two beautifully appointed bathrooms plus a powder room.

The master suite opens onto a private balcony with glass balustrade ensuring uninterrupted views across the landscape.

Accessed via a covered walkway is a substantial French Provincial limestone block barn (approved as a shed) which is currently being utilised as an office, games room and guest accommodation.

Adjacent is a workshop with a bathroom featuring shower, vanity and toilet - ideal for coming home from the beach or work with an adjoining second laundry, separate garden shed, wood shed plus an expansive concrete pad - ideal for the housing of caravans or boats.

A four-bay garage with roller doors and a loft is an easy walk to all the other facilities.

Water catchment has been a priority with up to 230,000 litres over four tanks plus a bore (not equipped).

Unique and secluded, this exclusive property is only a short four-wheel drive from Kilcarnup Beach.
