Under Offer

This property is an extraordinarily rare and exciting opportunity for someone (or two) seeking a unique, charming, and down-to-the-detail exquisite home blessed with holding the history of its surrounds. Set on 5 stunning acres, the lush gardens, natural bushland, and bucolic pastoral surrounds enhance the colonial and heritage styles of this 1950s built and perfectly maintained cottage and lend an air of old-world charm from the moment you swing open the gate. Take a stroll across the lawn, pick a posy of flowers. This is Parkerville life at its most idyllic.

McDowell Cottage, as this charming residence is now known, was originally constructed on the 103 acres that encompassed Parkerville Estate as a peaceful and restorative antidote to the sorrows and adversities faced by the original land holder, Mr Fred Boyle, upon his return from World War II. Thoroughly accomplishing this, its legacy has continued through generations since, and it is now ready for another iteration as a very lucky family's home. Extensively and lovingly refurbished, it has lost none of its authentic appeal in the intervening decades, and now is simply a bigger, lovelier, and more polished version of its original self. In every corner of this very special property, you'll feel the generations of love poured into it, and appreciate the intention it was originally built with.

Is there anything better underfoot than gorgeous Jarrah floorboards? With benchtops to match and the warmth of a slow combustion fire beside, the kitchen is the heart of this cottage. The vintage style cooker is where bread baking and soup making dreams are realised in the wintertime, with air conditioning easing the heat on days where simply flinging the windows open doesn't bring relief. Meals are best shared with loved ones, so gather them for dinner around the dining table or spend long, languid days poolside, with late lunches served in the semi-enclosed alfresco area. Antique style Ceiling fans, louvred windows, and concertina doors combine to create a versatile space that suits a family style dining setting as well as it does a chaise or two alongside a cocktail bar.

Dreams are made extra sweet with pendant lighting, and soft drapery in the bedrooms. Bathe in the luxury of a claw foot tub before bedtime for the ultimate indulgence; a candle or two and a glass of wine may be a cliché, but there's no denying the appeal here. Even work hardly seems a chore, with the deep, relaxing colours and soft lighting in the 3rd Bedroom/study providing a welcome sense of comfort and ease to the room. And then there's the sun lounge, for when relaxation beckons once again and the allure of a good book is too strong to deny. A favourite armchair, a soothing melody on the stereogram, and the picturesque outlook from almost every direction. Will you ever want to set foot off this property again? We don't believe so.

To complete the total property package are the horse paddocks, water taps & troughs & 2
well-appointed stables and tack room.
