AN INCOMPARABLE PARADISE
355 Woodlands Road
PORONGURUP, WA 6324
How do you even begin to put into words a place that is so breathtakingly stunning and exquisitely unique? A retreat that has perfectly included life’s luxuries while not detracting from the raw beauty of one of the world’s most ancient mountain ranges which spectacularly rises over the property.
Flicking through the pages of the guest book, the healing power of this property is evident, with past guests waxing lyrical about its abilities to refresh and revitalise and gushing about its pure tranquillity and seclusion.
It’s no surprise to find out that many guests from all over Australia and the world have returned time and time again, such is the incredible lure of this place.
Its rugged, awe inspiring beauty abounds right from the first impression, the winding driveway that tours you through just a sample of the property’s combination of undulating bushland, tall timber and fields and a glorious lake where a peaceful observatory bench seat is positioned to help you further relax.
Nestled on the hillside, the abode has been designed to wholeheartedly embrace the national park environment which surrounds it on three sides, inspired with raw timber and earthy tones so that it does not detract but rather adds to the scenery.
Tiered native gardens and a pebble walkway lead to the homes secluded entrance, screened by wooden panels with a bespoke wooden doorway unveiling the extraordinary vista.
Architecturally designed with love, the home sets about providing multiple spaces to sit and soak up the ambience, be it rain, mountain mist or shine (all incredibly beautiful to witness from this position).
An expansive deck and outdoor entertaining area sits between the two buildings, providing a place to bask in the sun, sit with a book and a cup of tea or enjoy outdoor dining all while observing the flutter of wildlife in their natural environment.
The main building of the home embraces you as you step inside, its gloss jarrah floorboards and wall panels with dado rail contrasts with the soft cream and extensive glazing to paint a truly homely picture.
An open plan dining space and lounge sit to the front of the space, cuddled around the wood fireplace and dwarfed under the soaring gabled ceiling with down lighting, fan and reverse cycle air conditioning to ensure comfort in all seasons.
The bespoke jarrah kitchen combines rustic charm with high end glamour, the raw jarrah cabinetry enhanced by contrasting rouge splashbacks, granite look benches, stainless steel appliances, a glass and stainless steel range hood, utensil hooks and feature down lighting.
A set of pine steps lead past the raw tree trunk supporting beam, somewhat of a centrepiece, before it introduces the living quarters.
Two stunning king sized bedrooms, are placed at opposite ends of the mezzanine style hall, reversed replicas, each with stunning character features, stylish bespoke ensuites, built in robes shielded by a velvet curtain, and of course large windows which allow an outlook towards the Porongurups from the comfort of your bed.
At the opposite side of the deck, the retreat really comes into its own, as wood and glass bifold doors connect into the luxurious spa room, with the sunken hydrotherapy spa with massage beds and 43 jets, sooths any remaining stress away, wine glass in hand while you admire your surrounds. It just doesn’t get any better than that!
A separate laundry and storage room and a screened clothes drying area can also be found here.
The home, while perfect for getting back to nature, is also connected to modern technologies, with Wi-Fi and a Satellite dish on hand.
Beyond the existing home, there is plenty of planned spaces for additional chalets if you wish to go down that path, with up to three more permitted on the property without rezoning, and the 14,000 trees planted on the property providing each location with its own sense of seclusion.
Guests or residents can stroll around the property’s walk trails, through the stunning Karri and native bushland, truly connecting with the great outdoors.
