This stunning luxury residence would fit right into the Hollywood hills but, instead of LA on its doorstep, it sits in a pristine environment on the South Coast of Western Australia. Looking out over the vast expanse of the Great Southern Ocean and WA’s rugged coastline, punctuated by world class beaches and surrounded by old growth forests, it is, without doubt, the finest home in the region, in the most spectacular of locations. Surrounded and protected by its 37.15 hectares (92 acres) of coastal hills, it is totally private, secure and, with that, incredibly beautiful.
It has been designed with infinite care and attention to detail to be the ultimate flexible and low maintenance family home that could cater for everything from intimate family gatherings through to hosting guests from all over the world, dropping in for a dinner, a day or a week.
In the summer months the pool, lawns, balconies and alfresco entertaining areas provide the ideal backdrop for fun, relaxing and entertaining whilst taking in the massive views over the dark blue ocean, white sandy beaches, inlet, hills, mountains and azure blue skies that stretch from horizon to horizon. “Big Sky Country” is a term that could easily have been coined here.
In winter the views are no less spectacular but you may choose to spend more time indoors, enjoying this 1300sqm home, looking out through the large cedar framed windows at that 360-degree view whilst the natural log fire, underfloor heating and/or reverse cycle air-conditioning (take your pick!) keeps you warm and cosy, perhaps whilst enjoying some of the Great Southern’s famous produce.
Designed and built to last for generations, this grand but subtly designed limestone, brick and tile home offers a very generous and versatile floorplan with a number of different zones, all linked by thoughtful design into a cohesive, magnificent whole. The master bedroom suite, with its walk-in robe, exquisite 6-star resort-style ensuite, large dedicated study or studio, and private lounge, occupies a commanding elevated position to one side, with fabulous ocean views. Two guest or children’s bedrooms, with a shared bathroom and separate powder room, occupy a second zone. These bedrooms have views to the north and east. A stunning family room with expansive pool and ocean views links through to the master bedroom zone.
The main living area of the home is built around the large open plan lounge and dining room, with the family kitchen and casual meals area off to one side. With a high vaulted ceiling and large picture windows, this living area enjoys views to the north over Wilson Inlet to the mountains beyond, south down a valley to the Great Southern Ocean and west down the coast to the beaches and headlands stretching away to the horizon.
The kitchen is a delight, with premium finishes, top-end appliances that include an induction cooktop as well as gas burners, so you have the best of both worlds. Combined with the double ovens, and dishwasher, a scullery/food preparation area, walk-in pantry, and double butler sinks, you will want for nothing. With more of those amazing views, it’s a joyous space in which to make everything from a simple sandwich to an eight-course banquet.
Above the main living room is a mezzanine level, home to the library lounge with a north facing balcony and more views to Inlet, mountains and coastline.
On a lower level of the home, opening onto the pool and alfresco entertaining area is the home theatre or rumpus games room, plus the laundry and a bathroom.
Accessed via a pavilion is another zone, being the guest wing, home to two more bedrooms, a bathroom and lounge.
A wine cellar is part of the lower levels. A triple undercroft garage is complemented by double undercover guest parking and ample brick paved hardstand for any overflow or additional guests.
The pool has an infinity edge facing the ocean. Nestled in a sheltered natural bowl, embraced by the house, facing the ocean and framed by the dense native coastal heath that cycles through some spectacular colours in the spring months. It is absolutely private with a generous paved area.
With a total internal area of just over 1300sqm, surrounded by manicured lawns big enough for a game of rugby, cricket, a grand marquee or to land a helicopter with ease, 1371 Eden Road, Nullaki, Western Australia, in the Great Southern Region of this beautiful land, is an Australian country estate like no other. A few minutes away is pristine Anvil Beach, a fabulous place for a swim, surf or to drop a line and catch some lunch. The full expanse of the Great Southern Wine and Food Region is virtually on your doorstep, with all the restaurants, galleries and an abundance of natural attractions to keep you busy exploring to your heart’s content for season after season.
The city of Albany is your closest regional centre 50km away with a population of over 36,000 people and all the services that go with a significant port city. Its all-weather airport links you back to Perth and with that direct flights to London, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Mumbai, Jakarta, Sydney, Melbourne, etc. This is a secluded, quiet, private, exclusive retreat that is still easily accessible from anywhere in the world, if you know the way.
Services include reliable and fast broadband internet, excellent mobile phone coverage and ample underground power. Pure, clean water is collected on the property from the sky and from a huge fresh artisan reservoir. Environmentally, this is one of the cleanest, most pristine corners of the planet. I invite you to come and experience this beautiful home yourself to appreciate fully the incredible value it will add to your life.
