Paddock, peace and space, plus lots of space

Spend the morning watching kangaroos graze the valley floor at 24 John Farrant Drive – an estate offering all the delights of rural life just 30 minutes from town.

Set among three acres of land in tranquil Gooseberry Hill, the two-story architectural residence is strategically positioned to enjoy the awning-lined views of the city.

The Agency Perth Property Partner Patrick Harper is suitable for a buyer pursuing a Perth Hills lifestyle and said a large family would feel right at home, with plenty of room and room to grow.

“It could also suit a buyer interested in equestrian sports – many properties on the John Farrant Estate have animals,” he said.

Guests will marvel at the grand scale of the five-bedroom, four-bathroom residence from the moment they pull into the driveway.

Enter through an elegant alcove and enjoy expansive views from every angle, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows in the open-plan living, kitchen, and dining areas.

Abounding in storage and quality appliances, messing around in the kitchen while enjoying the sunset in the hinterland will be a simple pleasure.

“The kitchen is made with stylish Tasmanian oak, while prominent New South Wales Blackbutt wood floors can be found throughout the house,” said Mr. Harper.

As a natural extension, the outdoor dining area will be the talking point of any social gathering. Make the most of the outdoor kitchen as the neighboring kookaburras laugh at night.

The ground floor also includes a formal lounge, the main bedroom, and a specially designed theater room – perfect for socializing and watching a movie.

Climb the wooden stairs to the first floor, which features numerous living areas, such as an activity room and a games room.

The remaining bedrooms are also here, each with a scenic balcony overlooking the treetops.

Not only is the architectural home a major revival, but the next buyer will also enjoy a handyman shed, a fenced-in pasture with a horse stable, and a five-car garage.

“The property is suitable for all seasons of the year with plenty to do indoors and out,” said Mr. Harper.

“Upstairs, the gym has been built especially for the kids, and you also have the indoor pool downstairs to lead an active lifestyle.

“The current owners originally planned to build a tennis court as well; the foundations had already been laid. The option is there to top it off – it doesn’t have to be a tennis court; it could even be a football field.”

From sitting outside and looking out over the striking valley on a winter’s day to taking a leisurely walk to feed the horses, 24 John Farrant Drive is like living on your private estate.

“Built-in 2001, the current owners are the only residents to have lived on this estate and have enjoyed the hillside lifestyle,” said Mr. Harper.

“Going back to the Gooseberry Hill National Park, there are plenty of hiking and mountain biking trails on the doorstep.”
