TIPPERARY FARM
45 BURGES SIDING ROAD, QUELLINGTON

A PRIVATE 100 ACRE ESTATE ON THE AVON RIVER

This magnificent historical property established in 1836 and encompassing 104 acres (42.27 ha) of prized agricultural land in the Avon Valley, is just 1.5 hours from Perth City and 10 minutes north of the York Township. Perched on the eastern bank of the Avon River, the land enjoys around 400mm average rainfall and includes eight paddocks with 75 acres of fertile, heavy to medium soils suitable for cropping and grazing. In addition to scheme water connection, two dams provide permanent pools throughout the year.

The property features a beautifully renovated 1912 character brick and iron homestead with classic features such as high ceilings, sash windows, exquisite polished floor boards and French doors leading on to the expansive wrap-around verandah. A well-appointed kitchen and connecting open plan living and dining area provide separation from the generous accommodation of four bedrooms, all with plush carpets, and 3 bathrooms. In addition, a library & music room with impressive stained glass windows and doorway is a quiet retreat from the bustle of the rest of the home. The living & dining area, library and main bedrooms have open fire places or slow-combustion heating and air-conditioning allowing for an inviting atmosphere all-year round.

A three bedroom, two bathroom weatherboard & iron cottage provides additional accommodation on the property and would be suitable for use by a manager or caretaker. Nearby, a classic turn-of-the-century brick and iron cottage could be restored for further accommodation. To the side of the cottages is a large machinery/workshop and a historic two storey barn with stable block, old blacksmith shop and worker quarters.

Established in the 1830s by the three Burges brothers, Samuel, William and Lockier, Tipperary Farm is historically significant as one of the earliest farm settlements in York. The historical significance of the property was recognised in 1954 when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh were entertained at Tipperary Farm.
