YARRABAH - THE ULTIMATE RURAL RETREAT

Welcome to the ultimate rural retreat in the Perth hills. Yarrabah is a historic and stunning farming estate, comprised of 5 titles, perched high on the shoulders of the Darling escarpment. Looking out over rolling hills, an intersection of valleys, sweeping pastures, and towering trees with freshwater dams and a creek line that flows out of the adjoining state forest. This is a rural nirvana only 40km from the City in the Perth hills.

5 adjoining titles make up a total of 315 acres (127 Hectares). This affords an incredible opportunity to build additional homes and create a multi-family retreat, keep it just as it is, or break the property up into smaller pieces as you wish. The full title diagram is available upon request with flexibility on price based on which titles you purchase.

The elevation affords much of the land sweeping views back over the coastal plain to the Indian Ocean beyond, with Garden Island and Rottnest visible in the distance. One part of the property even has a view back to the north and Perth's CBD skyline. You are spoilt with stunning views in every direction.

This property is all about enjoying an incredible, relaxed rural lifestyle, close enough to the city that it's just a quick 40min drive out of town, yet far enough away to feel you have left the noise of the city behind and you could be a million miles away. It is about nature and having the space, privacy, and peace and quiet to do what you want, at your pace. There are so many opportunities here, from playing tennis on the flood-lit court, croquet on the expanse of lawns. Swimming in the crystal-clear waters of the swimming dam, making campfires in the great outdoors and catching Marron from the lake. Seeing the sweeping expanse of the milky way above you at night. Losing yourself in the splendid gardens and connecting with the earth. Riding horses, mountain bikes, quad bikes, motorbikes, a tractor or two - take your pick! It is all possible here.

The energy is peaceful, tranquil, and calm. The air is clean and fully oxygenated by the surrounding forest. The property has an abundance of water, an essential consideration when looking to buy any rural property. The creek flows out of the State Forest for much of the year and is the principal water source for the property, complemented by a number of significant dams which add up to a huge amount of storage capacity. They are linked with a system of pipes and pumps to enable the transference around the property, as you wish, through the seasons. There are also several springs that rise on the property.

THE MAIN RESIDENCE & STUDIO

A relaxed rural homestead, of timber and stone with a high-pitched roof surrounded by a structured garden that includes an orchard, sweeping lawns, mature plantings, tennis court, and a games room in "The Barn". Large windows bring in an abundance of natural light and showcase the sweeping views out over the farm, forests, and valleys to the coast. High ceilings, timber floors, stone fireplaces. This is an oasis of calm. The 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, powder rooms, dining, family and living rooms, give you, your family, and your guests, an abundance of space. The main bedroom has its own walk-in dressing room and a spacious ensuite with corner spa, separate shower, twin vanities, and WC. Timber-framed windows look out into the mature gardens. There is an external office or gym room, set in the garden with a courtyard.

The two-storey section of the homestead is the Studio Retreat. This adjoins the main house but has its own separate entry. It offers a ground-floor living, dining, and kitchen plus a bedroom and bathroom. Upstairs is the main studio bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom complete with bath, separate shower, vanity, and WC. A great opportunity here for multi-generational living across the two residences.

That is a total of 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms under the main roof of the homestead. Services include high-speed internet, bottled gas, mains power, and mobile reception is good (carrier dependent).
The barn offers some additional simple workers accommodation with a large studio bedroom upstairs and a bathroom, sitting room, and storeroom downstairs. This is adjacent to the large games room where you will find a pool table, flat screen TV and lounge setting, table tennis table, and dart board.

YARRABAH COTTAGE

Located on a separate Lot and ideal as a farm manager's residence or offering further extended family accommodation, this is a single level 4-bedroom cottage. It has dining and living rooms, a gally farm-style kitchen and a study/office. There is a large outdoor veranda with stunning coastal views. The cottage enjoys a delightful outlook and is adjacent to a cluster of 25 interconnected and irrigated ponds and a GP Shed to facilitate commercial marron farming if desired.

Behind a secure gate at the end of a spectacular hand-cut historical driveway, backing onto a state forest and national park, plentiful water and stunning vistas, Yarrabah is a rural retreat like no other. I welcome your questions and invite you to inspect with me by private appointment, at your convenience. Call or email today to book a time.
