EXCLUSIVE RIVERSIDE ESTATE
1 Shell Bay Road
LOWER KING, WA 6330
The tranquil spectacle of beautiful river and harbour views from this exclusive property are truly enhanced by the privacy of its idyllic garden setting.
This outstanding estate of 4,315sqm was first selected in the 1920s for its peaceful location, with only a strip of bush reserve separating it from the shore of Shell Bay in the King River.
While the original timber and iron home has been renovated and extended over the years, it has retained its delightful character with jarrah floors, leadlight windows, timber window frames and high ceilings.
Lush, meticulously planned and reticulated gardens of flowering perennials, native and exotic species, fruit trees, vines and cottage plants around areas of terraced lawn create an oasis of calm and a fine introduction to the property.
Through the back door, entry is into an impressive, country-style kitchen and meals area with a towering feature timber ceiling and a wood fire. The kitchen has an abundance of cabinetry and a chef’s stove.
Adjoining this is a more formal dining room, then the main living space – a sizeable, carpeted lounge with French doors opening onto the shady veranda.
Two of the three bedrooms are big doubles with river views. The master has an en suite bathroom and a second bathroom serves the family and guests.
In the bedroom wing is another versatile room currently used as a library, but which would serve equally as a playroom or fourth bedroom, and there’s an office besides.
For outdoor living and entertaining, a sheltered rear deck shares the amazing outlook over the river and beyond to Oyster Harbour, and for quieter moments, there’s a variety of sheltered spots on the veranda, in the courtyard or under the trees.
Other major assets are a triple-bay garage, a big shed-workshop with power and a freestanding cottage-style studio a few metres from the house. With a kitchen area, shower, toilet and hand basin, the studio is a versatile space divided into two rooms with good natural light.
Down through the gardens, past the pond and beyond the end of the block is a track to the river and a little private jetty for taking a dip or throwing out a line.
The privileged new owners of this remarkable riverside property will enjoy an enviable country lifestyle without sacrificing the convenience of town just 15 minutes’ drive away.
