This beautiful contemporary federation style home is set in verdant countryside surrounded by all the wonderful tourist destinations of The Swan Valley, a rich blend of award-winning wineries, fine food, fascinating history, amazing art and lively events.
Featuring three separate but connected buildings designed to provide each space with independent amenities and set in landscaped gardens with several outdoor seating/dining/contemplative areas that allow your family and visitors complete privacy in the luxury of a spacious open rural setting. A perfect place for a family to grow in closeness to nature, freedom and open space.
112 Millhouse is classified a *Special Rural Property and as such the lucky new owners will have almost unlimited options for generating income from a range of uses that make it a very sound investment for a variety of potential landowners. Or simply as a wonderful ‘tree change’ environment from which it is possible to commute to the city in half an hour if required.
Set on 2.5 acres of lush meadowland/bush you will have all the benefits of a rural lifestyle with the convenience of newly developed Aveley Shopping Precinct only 5 minutes drive from you front door! Your journey home will find you winding through some of Western Australia’s most beautiful vineyards, and tourist destinations abound within a five-kilometre radius of this exquisite ‘country’ retreat.
Although originally architecturally designed as a Bed and Breakfast swanvalleybednbreakfast.com/location/, the property has many potential uses ~ Hobby Farm, Bed and Breakfast, Farm Stay, Student Accommodation, Family Home or Homestead. The property has reverted to personal use and the owner currently rents the two subsidiary living spaces, providing a wonderful home with substantial regular income.
The surrounding formal gardens flow out to the ‘farm’ area that features a ‘corral’ for your horses, farm sheds, an aviary, native flora (including huge ancient gum trees) and lovely glimpses to the Perth hills. There is a chicken coop (with 5 chickens = 5 farm fresh organic eggs every day and room for more chooks if you like…a great plus for visitors if you have guests - you can’t beat fresh eggs for breakfast on a farm stay).
The main homestead is a grandiose contemporary federation style home with full, wide verandas that completely surround the main building, providing the classic shading synonymous with federation architecture, which also connect to the two external buildings and double garage so that guests/tenants are protected from the elements all year round when moving from building to building.
THE MAIN RESIDENCE
A long driveway lined with trees leads you to what can best be described as ‘the manor’, an awe inspiring residence with all the style of a federation homestead from days gone by. The main entrance features a lovely original stained glass entry that came from a 100 year old Mt Lawley mansion. To your left is a very spacious formal lounge room, a place to sit and read by the beautiful 100 year old mantel piece or entertain your guests before dinner. This home features large windows and high ceilings throughout giving it a light airy atmosphere throughout.
The huge master bedroom has a modern open plan ensuite bathroom with a massive spa/bath, a walk in wardrobe and French doors that lead to a serene private courtyard.
There are two additional large light filled bedrooms with built in robes plus one with ensuite and the other bedroom is conveniently situated next to the third bathroom and toilet. Both bedrooms include sliding doors providing access to the veranda and the cottage garden.
Double French doors lead from the hallway into the enormous open plan modern dining/kitchen and living area surrounded by big windows overlooking the landscaped gardens and farm beyond which is serviced by an excellent bore. Off this delightful area is a big office and the laundry area. The home has ducted reverse cycle air conditioning.
THE NAOMI GRANT STUDIO
The quirky Naomi Grant Studio is self-contained accommodation, featuring:
• A spacious living area with high pitched cathedral-style tin roof and apex skylight
• Space for queen size bed and/or additional bed
• Self-catering with wall oven, electric stovetop
• Shady veranda and access to outdoor barbeque area
• Reverse cycle heating and air conditioning
This self-contained studio is perfect for a couple, two couples, or a family with two children, who wish to relax and take time out to enjoy the delights of a farm experience and the beauty of the Swan Valley. Alternatively this space could be a fantastic artist’s studio. It could also be rented as an open plan self contained ‘apartment’ (which is its current use).
THE GRANNY HOUSE
This building is essentially a granny flat to die for, featuring two large bedrooms with built in robes (so granny can invite the grandkids for sleep overs), an open plan kitchen/dining/living room with a walk-in pantry, a small bedroom or office and of course a bathroom.
This building is connected to the main residence via the veranda but is a separate home that can be rented or used as another guest home for visitors. It also features a large undercover entertaining area. This space is really a self-contained home that would be suitable for a small family too. It also features reverse cycle aircon.
*Special Rural Properties - Typical uses of special rural properties include a small area of agriculture or horticulture as well as the keeping of small numbers of animals. With these uses available, a Special Rural Property can provide what is locally known as a "hobby farm" for people used to living in the city for a fraction of the cost of a real working farm.
112 Millhouse Road, Belhus is conveniently located 5 minutes drive from the Aveley shopping precinct which includes grocery outlets, fast food, doctor surgery, chemists, bottle shops and more.
