“BARAMBA”

5264 GREAT SOUTHERN HIGHWAY, GWAMBYGINE

AN IDYLLIC, ELEVATED & VERSATILE HIDDEN GEM - A MUCH SOUGHT-AFTER WEEKEND RETREAT ONLY 1.5 HOURS FROM PERTH

A once in a lifetime opportunity has come on the market in the form of ‘Baramba’, an 83 hectare (205 acres) elevated landholding with views as ‘far as the eye can see’ across the magnificent York district and Mount Bakewell. Predominately a grazing property with ample, top quality water for livestock, the landscape and terrain, coupled with an impressive residence, make this unique and versatile ‘hidden gem’ a sought-after weekend retreat only 90 minutes drive from the Perth CBD.

A private road leads to the main homestead; a modern barn-style residence which sits comfortably amongst the natural vegetation on a granite outcrop. Designed to be largely open-plan, the heart of the home is a spacious, relaxed and bright space where the kitchen, dining area and lounge enjoy vistas of the countryside through glass doors that opens onto an expansive deck area. Upstairs, the mezzanine area includes main bedrooms and bathroom and enjoys a sense of tranquility with natural light and a neutral colour palette. A large studio, located adjacent to the house is currently being used as an artist’s space.

Surrounded by larger arable farms, this property has the scope for the intrepid farmer to reap the rewards that are enjoyed by York’s finest producers. With a mature, easy care sandalwood plantation as well as a few cropable acres, the opportunity to increase yields awaits a new owner/operator.
