1417 Spencer Road Narrikup 6326 WA
A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT
Both the main home and its matching guest house are warm and inviting in sandy toned render, and shady verandahs create wonderful external areas in which to sit and admire the view across the 15,000 cubic metre dam.
The decorative leadlight door with side panels opens into a gallery and formal entrance featuring a marble look floor and soft lights hanging from the high ceiling.
The first port of call is a regal formal dining room reserved for reading, entertaining and for special occasions. The rich red carpet, smokey green walls, French panelled bay window, and general decor are designed to complement any furnishings from modern to Victorian. A chandelier with dimmer creates a delightful ambiance.
Two spacious bedrooms make the most of the valley views, the master suite especially so with its full wall of glass and direct access to the front verandah. Both bedrooms feature built in robes and carpet. The second bed/sewing room has roller blinds should you, on a rare occasion, need to close them for privacy. This is a rarity however, with the property graced with such wonderful seclusion.
The bathroom is comprehensively appointed, with an attractive tiled floor and highlighted by a huge glass shower recess also with views.
Two sets of bi-fold doors open off the gallery, to the formal dining room on one side, and into the open plan lounge with soaring cathedral ceilings on the other. The lounge features door height glazing on two walls, and flows effortlessly into the generous kitchen and meals areas. A pot belly stove in the lounge and a Rayburn slow combustion stove with hot water system in the kitchen provide winter warmth.
Cooking is courtesy of a Miele electric oven and gas cook top, and hot water from a Bosch instant gas unit when the Raeburn is not in use. A Miele dishwasher, servery hatch, walk in larder and benchtop/glassware cabinet complete the picture. Above is a magnificent loft area which makes for the perfect observatory and study.
An excellent large laundry features generous bench and cupboard space, a recessed woodbox, and provision for a small upright freezer.
The adjacent porch serves as an informal tradesman's entrance and boot room.
This home is extremely space efficient and has possibly the smallest effective hallway you're ever likely to see.
The second building, 8 metres from the main house, includes delightful accommodation for visitors or relatives, with a third queen size bedroom, ensuite, and a huge games room. It is serviced by an electric hot water system.
Beyond the buildings, the property unfolds like a treasure. Landscaping blends with the natural slope, reticulated house lawns are fed from the dam, and the gardens feature roses, hedging, vegie patch and a kitchen herb circle right outside the meals area window.
Two huge tanks of 200,000 litres capacity each, store the rainwater.
The quality colorbond and zincalume shed is powered and measures 24m x 12m. It is fully enclosed, with three x 6 metre sliding doors (door height of 3.48m) and one closed bay. Two bays of the concrete floor are painted with bullet proof industrial epoxy. A floor to roof divider separates off one end bay which has a personnel door, interconnecting door, and two windows.
This property incorporates excellent grazing country. There are ten paddocks, nine of them with stock water, and five different soil types. The 2.4 Kms of Hay River, and a strong winter creek are fenced out, but access to both is provided at several points. All recent fencing is of the highest quality, with double - galvanised hinge joint, and hot dip galvanised star pickets. Treated pine posts are used in place of star pickets in wet areas. The original boundary fencing is plain wire, and electrified. Gateways are up to 7.5 metres wide, most of them with hinged steel gates and unique latches.
There are five dams, including a main dam of 15,000 cubic metres, and three of the remaining four dams are spring fed. There are also two soak holes in a fenced-out wetland which has a fresh water stream running into the river twelve months of the year. Holding capacity for rain water is 400,000 litres so the availability of freshwater on this property is effectively unlimited. There are shelter belts, and large areas of native forest, including those on both sides of the river and the creek line.
