Birchgate Farm; a soul-soothing lifestyle property with a proud history and the outlook to match …

Offers Close Tue, 16th Apr – 10am (usp)

With a sweeping valley view as far as the eye can see, some 44 gum-studded acres to call its own, a productive olive grove, and the horse facilities to make an equine enthusiast swoon, Birchgate Farm is something very special before you even step inside the stone-laden C1932 cottage that started it all.

It started as a thriving orchard. It’s become a reputable agistment. It’s always been a picturesque property, preserved with a deep sense obligation by its long-standing owners.

That’s why its original outbuildings still stand today, as functional as they’ve always been on a property with 21 paddocks, stable, tack room, hay shed, arena and a memorial garden that watches over the valley with serene pride.

Extended to connect the old creamery to the original dwelling, this five-bedroom home is arguably in the best shape of its life, solar powered to transport its heart-warming charm into the 21st century.

Whether it’s the Jarrah, Blackwood and Brushbox floors underfoot, the intricately decorated ceilings or the exposed stone walls that now moonlight as internal features, its original hallmarks shine as bright as ever in this boundless home of multiple living zones and three ensuited bedrooms.

Of its several inspired alterations and additions, the stone-topped kitchen and pitched-roof alfresco pavilion make the biggest impact – ensuring good food, with a view, is always at the heart of every memorable moment. Birchgate Farm makes them count.
