Size and Orientation:
The property is 4 hectares and the biggest on the Kevill Rd ridge. The north-facing slope down the river provides a perfect solar passive design for homes and gardens. The winter sun is plentiful and lights the house for long hours, providing the best psychological wellness conditions. In summer, cooling sea breezes make for a beautiful climate and outdoor entertaining with amazing sunsets and 180-degree views in both directions of the Margaret River Valley.
This “Garden of Eden” has 1,500 grapevines (500 Viognier and 1,000 Cabernet, contracted to MR Barval), and they are in fantastic condition. There are many olive trees, bountiful roses, fruit trees and more — water is available and licenced from the Margaret River itself, with a submersible silent pump. The property is fenced to exclude kangaroos and has an electric gate at the entrance.
The house is a funky 4 x 2, with additional four office/storerooms in a separate building zinc alum building. Architect Tim Morley created the semi “Glenn Mercutt” style. It is an ideal holiday home or easy to care for permanent residence that is fun to live in until further development or building your dream home.
The land has no subdivision plans, but a buyer could explore this. Most homeowners on the Kevill Road ridge prefer to keep these large and rare blocks as a premium location. Peace, quiet and a friendly neighbourhood is greatly valued. There are no Airbnb homes. An Optus tower in the far distance gives excellent internet access and phone reception.
In 1994 it was selected as a premium property and since then has been significantly developed with landscaping terraces, rockwork and vines.
