IDYLLIC SITE FOR INVIGORATING TREE CHANGE
96 Shapland Road
Youngs Siding, WA 6330
Sheltered by towering karri trees in a sunbaked spot at the top of its undulating 10.29ha block, this impressive earth brick home embodies the essence of the good life.
The location is magic, with every window taking in views of the centuries-old trees on the property, and birds and wildlife enhancing the pure, natural beauty of its surroundings.
A long, winding driveway leads through a cleared area of land and bush up to the home, making a fine introduction to the property and the lifestyle it promises.
The L-shaped building creates a protected enclave, with a lawn and an assortment of fruit trees – including banana and mango – at the front.
Inside, rooms are spacious. At one end of the house is the kitchen, with Italian styling of red cabinetry with black benchtops. This leads to the dining area and then the family room, all with raked ceilings and warmed by a big wood fire.
Bedroom one is a generous corner room with windows on two sides and glass doors leading outside. The huge second bedroom could easily be divided into two or used as a games room, sunroom or studio.
There’s a wheelchair-accessible bathroom with a big, deep bath and a toilet in the adjoining laundry.
A major lifestyle attraction of this property is the outdoors.
About half of the block is cleared and the remainder is in native bush of karri, yate and peppermint, with tracks for walking or horse riding enriching the experience for the fortunate owners.
Good soils on the cleared areas are suited to growing crops or running a few head of stock, and there’s a fenced veggie patch as well as several ideal sites for installing a chook run.
Water is plentiful from a soak and a rainwater tank and power is underground.
Outbuildings are in good condition. A carport adjoining the house has power connected, and there’s a nearby open shed as well as a 5m x 5m machinery shed with a concrete floor. On the lower reaches is a big open-sided tractor shed in two parts for storing farm implements.
The Wilson Inlet is a few minutes away for fishing and crabbing, and when a visit to town becomes necessary, Denmark is a 25-minute drive in one direction and Albany 35 minutes in the other.
This exceptional property presents a rare opportunity for a refreshing tree change in a well-managed site with potential for new ventures.
