Surrounded by neighbours which are either premium vineyards, cellar doors, restaurants, or significant country homes on acreage. This region is the bluest of blue-chip.
The romantic glow of logwood fireplaces infuses the home with a rich authentic ambience, and the primal attraction of embers and natural flames lets you know that you have arrived in the iconic Margaret River region.
The homes solar and environmentally passive design employs louvred windows at the apex of the 6m ceilings to release heat from the home and capture cooling sea breezes in summer to naturally regulate temperatures via the process of convection.
