Built from rammed earth, bush poles and timbers milled from an ancient old-growth Karri tree that had fallen over on the site when the owners moved here… this is a classic Margaret River home.

The home itself was built by iconic Margaret River builders Wilderness Building, and is constructed of rammed earth, bush poles and timbers and floorboards milled on site from local Marri and Karri, which give the home such an authentic pedigree. Kitchen benchtops in Karri from the same ancient old-growth tree gives the home a rich warmth and atmosphere with its organic edges. Timber decks sweeping around the home’s exterior on the edge of the wild and untamed forest are as exciting as they are breathtaking.

Firewood can be foraged from your own forest for the seriously warm, slow combustion wood stove in winter, or for the outdoor pizza oven in summer – both are equally good for sharing a Margaret River red around with friends.

Alongside is an architecturally industrial shed, inspired by the old-school farm and shearing sheds of the region. Built from classic architectural salvage with jarrah floors and warehouse windows, this is a character addition to the property.


This home is surrounded by the northernmost pocket of Karri forest in Western Australia – these are some of the most magnificent trees in the world and stretch from here to Albany along the South Coast and exist nowhere else.

This forest is a seam of Karri’s that extends Northwest from the Boranup forest and is a little known northern extension of Western Australian Karris, unique in its location and beauty.

Check out our virtual tour online and “virtually walk” around the decks just to get an idea of how beautiful these trees are! This place has such a cool vibe!

Make your morning coffee and step out onto the eastern deck as the sun rises and the dappled light floods through the glorious Karri trees to signal the beginning of the new day amongst the beautiful symphony of birdsong and wildlife.

Enjoy the arrival of vivid amber flocks of Red Tails and Carnaby’s Black Cockatoos as well as many more types of forest birds – literally everywhere around you.

Kangaroos visit each dawn and dusk.

Five tons of milled Karri is still preserved in the shed and can be included by negotiation ready for a furniture builder. What a pleasure to have such a beautiful natural resource that is so site-specific and tied to your own property. The possibilities are endless!

Feel like a surf? 20 minute’s drive Due West to Contos. Veer South to Boranup beachies or veer North to Redgate, Gas and Grunters. Some of the best untouched beaches of the South West region are right here at your doorstep. This is the type of country that really makes you feel alive!!

Super close to Margaret River Independent School, but also close to The Margaret River Village for a great selection of government schools.

In the heart of “Cave Country” – Giants Cave, Jewell Cave, Mammoth Cave & Brides Cave are all here!

Many of the current owner’s fondest memories were formed on the property’s huge, level camping area to which they would regularly invite up to 10 different families and friendship groups on many occasions to come and enjoy their special part of the world.

The shed is seriously cool and was the backdrop to many a party. The kids who love riding their bikes around the “farm” would ride them in circles through the shed.

Walking the dogs up Sebbes Road and down the Rails to Trails was another favourite past time of the sellers. Or along to Pies and Ale for a drink and a snack. As well as abalone fishing at Contos and beach fishing for Tailor, Salmon and even bagging the occasional Mulloway!

They also loved nothing more than taking their guests to the self-guided Giants Cave to give them a classic and irreplaceable, Margaret River experience.

The kids would catch Marron in the winter creek and entertain themselves for hours.

Whether as a family home or a holiday getaway, this is The Real Thing.

The owners would now like to pass on these life-changing and memory forming experiences to you.

This was their Margaret River, the Margaret River of yesteryear, the Margaret River of nostalgia, the Margaret River we all pine for, the Margaret River that now seems just out of reach and now only just within memory!

This too can be your Margaret River. There is less and less of it left. Why not grab it now for you and your family and make it yours while you can?
