GOD'S OWN COUNTRY!
17 Bolganup Road
PORONGURUP, WA 6324
An idyllic rural lifestyle awaits the astute buyers of this delightful property near the foot of the Porongurup Ranges.
The 1950s cottage displays a magnetic charm and the 8098sqm block it occupies is perfect if you hanker to run a couple of sheep, keep chooks, grow veggies and be surrounded by stunning natural bush with an abundance of birdlife and kangaroos on your doorstep.
It’s in the heart of the Porongurup settlement, a major tourist destination for visitors to the south of the state for the wines, wildflowers, walks and amazing scenery.
You could have all this every day, plus you’d live within 30 minutes’ commuting distance of Albany and 20 minutes from Mt Barker.
With a homely ambience and delightful original features, the home is set back off the road, sheltered by mature gums and peppermints at the front and stands of tall natives and bushland at the rear.
Jarrah floorboards are in most rooms, and there’s a terrific Metters stove in the kitchen, though for convenience, there’s a gas stove as well.
The main living area is an open lounge and dining space with a wood fire positioned to heat the entire home, and the side veranda would be great for summer barbecues.
Three of the bedrooms are double sized and the fourth, off one of these rooms, would make an ideal nursery, dressing room or private office.
In the bathroom are the bath, shower and basin, and the toilet is separate, off the laundry.
An addition to the original home is an enclosed room along the back, housing the laundry at one end, an office at the other and a handy central utility area for storage, a playroom or hobby room.
The outdoors is a real treat. There’s an open-fronted shed for stock shelter and storage for the ride-on mower, a double garage-workshop or machinery shed and a chook run. A big rainwater tank supplies enough for the house and stock.
Most of the block is in grass with some established fruit trees, and fencing is good. Being just over two acres, it is big enough for planting veggies – and for simply enjoying the relaxing, enviable life it promises in one of the most picturesque areas of the Great Southern.
At this price, it’s definitely worth a close look for those considering a move to the country.
