PICK OF THE CROP

MARBELUP, WA 6330
This truly outstanding rural property of 6.62ha is a hobby farmer’s dream.
It offers so many possibilities for horticulture, running livestock, keeping chooks for fresh eggs and enjoying the idyllic garden setting of the character home.
The homestead is reached via a long driveway from the road. It is set among lush flowering gardens and lawns and has decks on two sides for sitting out to admire the outlook, take in the tranquility and listen to the birds.
A superior recent renovation project has transformed this fibro house into a charming, modern home with everything ready for new owners to move in.
Polished flooring of native timbers throughout the home are complemented by jarrah window frames, high ceilings and a leadlight front door, all done up to the highest standard to create a warm, inviting ambience for the owners and their guests.
Finished in white cabinetry, the country kitchen has undergone quality modernisation. It has a butler’s sink, a chef’s stove and plenty of space for a dining table.
French doors from the lounge lead out to a sizeable gable-roofed deck, and there’s a second deck at the front door.
The three bedrooms are all well proportioned – one has a built-in robe and the other two have ceiling fans.
There’s a double carport on the side of the home and outbuildings consist of a 10m x 5m shed with a 4m lean-to, a stable, shade house and various smaller sheds for storing equipment.
The owner has lovingly tended the property for more than 30 years and all cultivation is organic without chemical sprays.
There are too many fruit trees to count – stone fruit, citrus, berries and nuts – as well as a vegetable garden and native timbers for shelter. The land is divided into four paddocks, mainly of rye and kyke, fenced with Ringlock. Water is plentiful from two bores and a 100,000-litre rainwater tank.
With excellent infrastructure, a comfortable home, beautiful gardens, fruit trees and enough land for grazing or cultivation, this property will have wide appeal among those looking to escape the ratrace and supplement their income.
If commuting is a necessity, though, this attractive farmlet is less than 20 minutes from Albany.
