1258 Millbrook Road
MILLBROOK, WA 6330
The country lifestyle awaits on this fantastic 2.58ha property in the leafy semi-rural community of Millbrook.
The heart of this home is part of an original mill house, but it has undertaken a wonderful transformation to offer the perfect combination of farm-style living with plenty of modern touches.
The combination of high raked ceilings, jarrah floorboards and downlights immediately set the tone.
There are several living spaces throughout the home, and each one offers a different aspect over the property.
There is a north-facing sun-lit room that opens up onto a spacious timber deck that overlooks the soft leafy trees that surround the gardens. It would be the perfect place to sit and relax at any time of the day.
Another of the living spaces is housed within the original part of the home and benefits with its wide brick walls, insulating the room and keeping it cool on those hot summery days and keeping the warmth in when winter sets in. It features the original built-in fireplace.
The kitchen is centrally located and features a large island bench, along with a gas cooktop. The layout offers the kind of practicality you’d expect from a country property.
The home consists of three double bedrooms and two single bedrooms, with the master bedroom overlooking a small pond and established trees.
There are two bathrooms, with one having benefitted from a makeover with its beautiful deep bath and nice modern tones.
There is a choice of places to perch outside to sit and watch the world go by. A covered verandah offers year-round shelter and overlooks the trees and gardens, while the open deck area would cater perfectly for outdoor entertaining with its proximity to the kitchen.
The near-by pizza oven would no-doubt get a run.
The features around the property are just as inviting as the house itself and it only takes a short stroll around the property to realise that all the hard work is done, all it needs is a little bit of TLC.
The small original school-house is an interesting piece of history and is well suited as a studio for any artistic pursuit. It is just a hop and a skip from the back door of the home.
The orchard and chook run are in place and could easily be spruced up to return to their glory days of generating an abundance of fresh produce.
All the storage needs are taken care of too, with a double garage next to the house and a small shed that is currently used as a single-stand shearing shed, offering secondary storage.
A powered 15m x 8m zincalume shed is the star of the show and it features high clearance to store that caravan or boat.
Further afield from the house, the property is divided into three paddocks with the external fencing in good condition.
But the real winner here is the year-round water supply from Millbrook stream that runs through the property.
All the infrastructure is in place to pump the water up to the house and the added bonus is the picturesque outlook that the stream provides, after a short meander from the house.
Established lifestyle properties that are within easy reach of town can be hard to find, and while there might be a few Sundays spent sprucing the place up, it offers excellent value.
There is more than enough land available to become self-sufficient and if intensive horticulture is your thing, then it can certainly be done here, with several similar sized properties in the area producing a small income from growing fresh produce.
