Beach, bush and river
The beach, the bush, the river ... this property has it all.
Maybe you're retired, or taking early retirement. Or you want to bring up a family away from the suburbs in this time of uncertainty due to coronavirus. You love getting your hands into the soil to grow vegies and plants and maybe you're into fishing, bush walking, canoeing, beachcombing, wood turning or bird-watching.
Or maybe you want to fulfil a lifelong ambition to run a B&B.
This property - just minutes from one of the South Coast's most pristine and undiscovered beaches - ticks all those boxes.
And there's plenty of space to build an extra home or two to house relatives.
Wellington House is in Nornalup, 10km east of Walpole and a short drive from the Treetop Walk in the Valley of the Giants. It was run by previous owners as a B&B, and all the necessary accoutrements for that activity come with the property.
Adjoining the Walpole-Nornalup National Park, the property is just a few minutes' drive from Bellanger Beach (Blue Holes) on a 4WD track; and the spectacular Frankland River, flowing into the Nornalup Inlet, is nearby.
The beach offers year-round fishing for around 10 edible species, including herring, whiting, flathead and salmon.
The property is a garden-lover's paradise, and has been opened to the public under Australia's Open Garden Scheme. About 2 hectares (five acres) are reticulated from a bore, so the grounds look lush and green all year.
There are several walking trails through the bushland, where the dominant trees are karri and peppermint. Springtime offers many native plant delights, including several species of orchids. There is a marron-stocked lake, and there is potential to develop more marron ponds on the property due to several wetland areas.
Soil types range from sand to karri loam and peat.
An established orchard produces oranges, lemons, mandarins, apples, avocados, apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums, pomegranates, cherries, macadamias and mulberries.
Bird life abounds, with blue wrens and crimson rosellas among the permanent species.
The north-facing house has a solar panel array, three big water tanks, NBN satellite internet, satellite TV and mobile phone reception.
There are five bedrooms, four with en suites. If run as a B&B, four of the bedrooms would be available for guests, three with en suites and one with access to a private bathroom.
The owner's bedroom and private lounge is separate from the guests' area. However, if you are planning to keep the house private, the lounge can serve as a study or home office.
The reception, dining and kitchen area are in one huge open area with a vaulted clerestory roof, which floods the area with northern light.
The kitchen bay window overlooks the rose garden, and the huge benchtop is perfect for preparing breakfasts or catering for friends.
The home has reverse-cycle air-conditioning and there are fans in all bedrooms. The lounge has a slow-combustion, fan-boosted wood heater with a long flue, making it very efficient at heating the open-plan area. You will never have to buy firewood, as the grounds have abundant timber.
A state-of-the-art heat pump provides eco-efficient and economical hot water.
Outbuildings include a carport, powered garage, powered railway carriage-cum-store, wood shed, big powered shed containing workbenches, open shed for boat/trailer etc and a smaller shed containing a 6kVA generator set and workbench.
The price includes all furniture, bedding, linen and crockery needed for running a B&B. Extras include a ride-on mower and trailered water bowser.
