B&B - or just enjoy the good life
Everything is set for new owners to run Wellington House as a bed and breakfast, as the property is being sold on a walk-in, walk-out basis. Or you could do as the current owners do, and just enjoy the peaceful life on this gorgeous 15 hectare (35 acres) lifestyle property.
Wellington House is in Nornalup, 10km east of Walpole and a 10-minute drive from the major South Coast tourist drawcard, the Treetop Walk in the Valley of the Giants. It was run by previous owners as a B&B, and all the necessary accoutrements come with the property.
The property, which adjoins the Walpole-Nornalup National Park, is just a few minutes" drive from the beach on a 4WD track; and the spectacular Frankland River, flowing into the Nornalup Inlet, is nearby.
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 on the property, where the dominant trees are karri and peppermint. There is an all-season marron-stocked lake, besides which is a gazebo.
There is potential to developed more marron ponds on the property due to several wetland areas.
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 and satellite TV.
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 property has ample timber.
A state-of-the-art heat pump provides eco-efficient and economical hot water.
Outbuildings include a carport, 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 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 fire trailer.
