GRAND EUROPEAN-STYLE ESTATE!
3 Harbour Road
BAYONET HEAD, WA 6330
Historic charm and opulence majestically unfolds as you explore this grand lady boasting European-style architecture, seclusion, romance and luxury. Reminiscent of an imposing European country estate, this stucco design makes a grand architectural statement.
Providing ample space for entertaining and a unique business opportunity to run as a function complex with the added perk of living on-site in your separate, luxurious large family residence.
Offering deluxe accommodation, this 11-bedroom, 10-bathroom secluded retreat presents an immaculate and impressive 11,519sqm of country estate gardens – the perfect setting for exclusive weddings, parties and much, much more.
The current owner has masterfully re-decorated, sparing no expense in improvements during its rein as an award-winning bed & breakfast and now a boarding house for Great Southern Grammar students. A wonderful, successful business and family home ready for new owners to take it to the next level.
Upon arrival, dual sweeping driveways take you past well-manicured gardens offering seclusion and privacy from the road. The residence commands a sense of awe as you approach the unique building. You could be anywhere right now… Italy, France, Spain… the list goes on!
Already in love and eager to see more, step through iron-gates into the sheltered courtyard, with a scattering of intimate tables offering your guests a beautiful ambience for cocktails or morning and afternoon tea.
Continue to the portico entrance through French doors and step upon original jarrah flooring with ornate ceilings and exposed beams above. Traditional timber sash windows throughout create elegance and add to the atmosphere of an era gone by but still withstanding in all its glory and opulence; reminding you that you could be inside an English heritage building on stately grounds.
To your left a long corridor flaunts 8 bedrooms accommodating built-in robes with ensuite or private bathrooms adjacent. Ornate windows and ceilings, as well as stately ground views over the immaculate gardens or courtyard unveil a 5-star experience. There’s even a separate bathroom for the staff!
Leave the guest bedroom quarters and stroll into a delightful guest lounge area. A cosy and ambient place to relax, yet spacious enough to accommodate a small library, enjoy the piano or simply mingle with guests. A traditional style mantelpiece surrounds the huge illusion gas log fire place adding to the atmosphere.
From here French doors allow for immediate access to the enormous decked patio area that happily accommodates numerous tables for guests to indulge in breakfast whilst gazing down upon immaculate lawns leading to the pond. Not forgetting the perfectly flat lawn area to the side that was originally created for bowls and tennis indulgence.
Once back inside the guest lounge you’ll find a couple of steps leading up to the next level of the home. A majestic dining area with gorgeous bay windows with seating, original fireplace and all the quirks of craftsmanship and decor from yesteryear. A very special privilege for guests to delight in breakfast and dinner during their stay.
From here the large working kitchen offers all the space required to run a small business with ample bench space, 3 dishwashers, sinks, storage and plenty of room for commercial fridges. It is here that Flinders Lodge separates and extends from guest quarters to a warm family home for the owners.
The exterior offers a private entrance for owners-only that opens into a stunning, high-ceiling entrance hallway.
This grand and opulent home has an enormous formal lounge area, a traditional open fire place with a separate, decadent formal dining area. A master-piece of original exposed timber beams above compliment character jarrah floors below.
Not only does the private owners chambers have multiple living zones, it also has a spacious office to keep your business organised.
Dual entrances to add to the easy, care-free flow of the home.
The original reception room now accommodates the master bedroom, with beautiful sash windows allowing natural light to flow in, in abundance. A further two bedrooms can be found with another 2 bathrooms, and not forgetting, yet another separate lounge area with sliding doors leading out to the owners own private patio courtyard.
There are also many large store rooms scattered around with ample shedding, carports plus a double garage with private rear driveway access.
An absolute pleasure to view and certainly a matchless property, family home, plus business venture.
Having earned certificates and awards for best bed and breakfast in Lonely Planet publication, Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor but also Best Garden of the Year to name but a few of its prizes – with a success of 25 weddings having already taken place on the property enabling 16 guests to stay on for breakfast too.
