Garden of Eden
This sublime property was originally bought to be the current owners’ “forever home” – and so the transformation began, into a self-sustainable home and surrounding gardens where the family could be self-sufficient and enjoy a relaxing retreat in suburbia. The owners have planted over 100 fruit and nut trees, have levelled and built retaining walls and moved the whole front yard around to focus on having as much room as possible to grow food, whilst still leaving more than enough space for the kids to play, entertain and have a home that is comfortable, practical and beautiful overall.
Sprawled across almost 1,400sqm, the house itself has been lovingly restored over time and encompasses four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas and a gorgeous north-facing open-plan kitchen, dining and living area that splendidly overlooks the majestic grounds of the property. There is even a slow-burning fireplace to help you keep warm during those chilly winter evenings after a day spent in the garden.
It’s amazing to think that all of this – and more – can be found so close to breathtaking National Parks and the heart of old Midland town. It really is one of a kind!
In addition to all the above, the 96sqm (approx.) shed-come-garage has been built with a steel frame, steel posts and concrete floor – along with industrial resin coating – and could comfortably fit four cars inside. The main house’s floor plan also features a study, a laundry/scullery, an activity area/second living room and a storage shed on the outside.
As for the animal enclosures, there is a fully-contained rabbit area with a mosquito-proof shade-cloth, a gravity-fed watering system, feed bays and grow-out rooms, two chicken enclosures, a duck enclosure and three chicken shelters. The owners are proud to say that the soil is magnificent, having transformed it with hard work and over seven years of mulching and composting. It is teeming with earthworms and full of nutrition – organically.
