Rarely does such a fine federation residence present itself with all the elegant traditional features of this era and the comfort of a modern family home. Situated on 1.8 hectares (zoned special rural), and idyllically set amongst tranquil landscape gardens within a majestic native gum setting, the property offers a peaceful sanctuary yet is only minutes drive to the centre of Katanning, in the heart of the Great Southern region.
Originally built in 1905, the home contains iconic character features such as high ceilings with ornate plasterwork, bull nosed verandahs, grand spacious bedrooms with built-ins and large light filled windows, generous living areas with large formal dining and lounge in addition to the impressive main family living room, stunning lead-light windows, 3 sets of French doors with delightful north facing outlook, 3 functioning open fireplaces, and polished jarrah floors in the main living areas. Over the years there have been tasteful renovations and extensions in matching style to provide space and flexibility for family living. The main bathroom (with separate WC) is complemented by an additional shower in the large laundry and a third private al fresco shower adjacent to the pool, as well as a second WC in the workshop. There is also a separate office with built in desks and shelving. The surrounding gardens and paths have been designed to create an ideal sanctuary and accentuate the period features of the home. All gardens and lawns are reticulated to ensure low maintenance and truly are a feature of this beautiful property. The north facing verandah looks across rose bushes, lawns, and shady trees to a sparkling in-ground solar heated swimming pool. There are many alluring outdoor areas for BBQs, entertaining and relaxation, attractively framed by lattice screens and timber arches. The land surrounding is perfect for micro farming ventures, grazing or keeping a horse, and includes a paddock that regularly produces hay, a large 12m x 9m roller-door shed/workshop/garage, an impressive vegetable patch, fruit trees, chook shed with enclosed run, secure dog yard, stable, and a 5000yd dam for additional watering. A rare opportunity to own a Federation style home on acreage and so close to town.
