Nestled into the hillside amongst 10 acres of natural untouched Australian forest, this lovely country-style home enjoys picturesque views across the vineyard-covered valley and the utmost privacy from the outside world. Offering four bedrooms, separate study, two bathrooms, large family/billiard room and formal lounge/dining room there is an abundance of communal area for the family as well as separation when required.

The Upper Chapman Brook gently meanders through the middle of the property feeding two large, sculptured dams and providing substantial year-round water. The 37 megalitre water license offers enormous opportunity to diversify into other agricultural avenues like an orchard, avocadoes, blueberries, or even aquaculture.
This property was specifically selected by the current owners for its unique terroir of beautifully undulating topography, fertile soils, abundant water supply and ultimate suitability to grow premium Margaret River wine grape varieties.
With the majority of vines planted in 1997, the 11.2 Hectares of mature Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc vines saturate the ancient alluvial planes of the Upper Chapman Brook and sit as comfortably as a vine could in its environment.
During full production the vineyard yielded approx. 100 tonnes of grapes which have all been recognized as 94pts or higher by Australia’s preeminent wine critique James Halliday.
No expense was spared when fitting out the purpose-built winery. All equipment was sourced from the best suppliers locally and abroad to produce a most enviable production facility.
Every item has been used and maintained by the current tenant, which is ideal for this type machinery, and is ready for a new owner to move in a reinstate this properties label or leave the tenancy in place and just enjoy the lifestyle!
Other outbuildings include two substantial machinery sheds, with a lockable garage section, and the original dairy milking shed.
The old dairy homestead was completely renovated to provide a delightful cellar door sales outlet, private tasting rooms and light food caf service.
The cottage basks in warm winter sun, due to its northern aspect, and offers expansive views over the vineyard. This is a lovely place for coffee, wine tasting, light lunch or potentially a separate lease arrangement as a commercial space.
The walls are littered with numerous high-profile awards and accolades the wines have achieved over the years which stands as a true testament to the hard work and determination the owners had to produce world class wines – which they achieved.
This is a beautiful property and offers an ideal avenue into the world-renowned Margaret River wine industry. Being neighboured by one of Margaret River’s most visited tourism destinations also provides excellent exposure and numerous opportunities for a new owner to consider.
