Resplendent rural retreat with legal minor dwelling

Positioned within its own picturesque microclimate, this 7-acre Dairy Flat property celebrates a true connection with nature and its cycles. The current owners built the property in 2011, having already lived in and loved the area for the previous 15 years, they created an incredibly spacious, single-level family home, designed for multi-generational living with a one-bedroom minor dwelling.

The site has been meticulously transformed and landscaped into the park-like paradise seen today – encompassing vast, flat lawns, vibrant rose gardens, a large covered vegetable patch, an orchard and paddocks for animals. All the hard work has been carefully considered and undertaken with great care to make life as easy and convenient as possible. A collection of towering pine trees on the north-east creates wonderful shelter and protection from the wind, while the wetlands are home to a huge variety of magnificent birdlife. Affectionately known as ‘the flight path,’ these areas are filled with resident hawks, pheasants, Paradise Ducks, herons and magpies, just to name a few.  The orchard fruits prolifically and features figs, tangelos, lemons, limes, apples, plums, peaches, nectarines, grapes and grapefruit.

The residence is crafted from timeless solid brick, which blends easily within the natural landscape. There is space for up to 20 cars on-site, with four-car garaging and a huge, flat driveway area that can also accommodate boats, trailers, horse floats and motorhomes with ease. Inside, the generous family-friendly layout sees big living areas flooded with light and sun, with numerous ranch sliders creating a seamless connection with the outdoors. The magical rural views are captured from all angles, with rolling green hills and bush as far as the eye can see.

The designer kitchen is fabulous and functional, with a breakfast bar and large butler’s pantry. As previous commercial bakers, the owners knew how beneficial it would be for chefs to incorporate high-quality stainless steel and engineered stone benchtops. Outside, the generous alfresco living area is covered and complemented with a pull-down blind, making it useable all-year-round. It’s also home to the spa pool, conveniently located directly outside the master bedroom.

The master suite sits alone at the top end of the home, enjoying a good sense of privacy and an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. In fact, all three remaining bedrooms have their own walk-in wardrobe and outdoor access, and are located down the hallway that runs the entire length of the house. Also found along here are the separate, sound-proof second lounge, family bathroom, oversized linen cupboard and internal garage access.

Built to the same specifications as the main residence and separated from it by a fire-door, the minor dwelling is a pleasant and restful space. It has an open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen area that opens to outdoor living, as well as a separate bedroom, bathroom and laundry. Along with accommodating extended family members, the legal home can also be rented out.

The beauty of the location is the vast space and incredible sense of peace and privacy the property enjoys, while only being a 10-minute drive from Albany and the motorway. It’s the very best of both worlds.
