INVEST IN THE ARTS
Built by the late renowned artist, Howard Taylor, this property is nestled in the heart of Karri country in the lower southwest of WA. The 5 acre bush block was originally a school site and when Taylor bought it he built his satellite home and studio where the school had once been. The current owners have left everything in original condition so there is truly history here. There is an original Howard Taylor mural on the lounge room wall and part of an unfinished sculpture still near the shed.
The home is very sturdily built with many features throughout. The galley kitchen has jarrah featured everywhere and yet lets in plenty of light. With stainless steel sink and gas stove there is plenty of built in shelves to store everything you need. The kitchen leads on to the dining area which overlooks some of Northcliffe's most beautiful farming land. The sunken lounge is warmed by a slow combustion wood fire and provides one of those perfect places to curl up with a book.
The bedrooms are large and feature Jarrah exposed beams and floors. The shower room, laundry and toilet are all separate and add to the rustic appeal.
Howard Taylor's studio, which overlooks the large Karri trees on the block, is a separate building and is an approximately 6x30m area. It incorporates his studio, 3 other large rooms a large storage area and workshop/shed. The property has ample water with 2 tanks, the larger being 130,000 litres.
This property is an ideal retreat for the art lovers or for that perfect tree change. With the coast only a 30 minute drive away, add the Munda Biddi trail and the Bibbulman track and you have plenty of places for bike rides and bush walks. D'Entrecasteaux national park is also close by for all the 4wd enthusiasts.
This very authentic and original property built in the late sixty's to early seventies would appeal to all and has the option to be bought walk in walk out.
