The blue wrens are chirping at 26 Six Mile Road in Dinninup near Boyup Brook. This fabulous property is well known throughout the district having been one of the largest apple and pear orchards during it’s time.
Since purchasing the property in 2002, the current owners have heavily invested their time, energy and lots of money into all areas of the farm. This is showcased in the restoration of the original mud brick home that was constructed in 1925. The double brick extensions have replicated the federation style of the original house with high decorated ceilings and cornices, light fittings and switches plus beautiful jarrah timber floor boards salvaged from a house on the neighbouring property. The total living area of the house now equals 204 m2. Restumping and rewiring of the house was undertaken during the restoration process and the high quality of workmanship is evident from top to bottom, front to back.
The magnificent grand hallway stretches from the front door to the rear of the house. The rich jarrah floorboards which run throughout the house are showcased in this area, along with the decorative arch, high ceilings incorporating rosettes complimented with period correct light fittings. The break with the past is at the western end of the house where large commercial grade windows and glass sliding doors allow for expansive views across the paddocks and dam from the kitchen and living area. The kitchen area features jarrah cupboard doors, walk-in pantry, 900mm oven plus dishwasher.
The extensions to the original house have allowed for a fantastic master suite featuring walk-in robe and deluxe ensuite. The brass fittings, piping and tapware in the ensuite perfectly compliment the grand claw-foot bath. There is a fireplace in the second bedroom and an equal-size third bedroom is located across the hallway. The living area to the front of the house has a working fireplace plus access to the verandah. The dining room is a delight, having been the original kitchen in the past. A refurbished Metters stove takes pride of place in this room and is surrounded by rich jarrah, quality trimmings and French doors out to the hallway. There is a dedicated study room further down the hallway, as too is the second bathroom with shower and toilet that also allows access directly from the laundry.
Surrounding all 4 sides of the house is a 2.5 metres wide verandah with timber decking, creating a whopping 182 m2 of shelter throughout the seasons. From here you can absorb the wonderful established gardens. To the west there are three majestic English Elm trees that burst into leaf in spring, as do the roses and other deciduous garden plants. The gardens are a joy to behold.
The former fruit packing shed offers abundant room to operate your daily business and meet storage requirements.. The decommissioned cool rooms are now used as a secure and constant temperature wine production and storage facility. There is 3 phase power to the shed plus a designated “social area” with a wood fire and other creature comforts. Located nearby, the shearing shed and yards are in great working order. The two-stand shearing capacity allows for the seasonal shearing work to be completed on location.
The 100 acres is a healthy mix of soil types with some granite outcrops towards the top of the property. The fertilising schedule is diligently followed which allows the Poll Dorset stud operation to continue to prosper. With 9 well fenced and watered paddocks serviced by a central laneway, the logistics of stock rotation are easily managed. The large central dam services the paddocks and is a visual splendor from all parts of the property.
If you crave the rural lifestyle with the delights and comforts of a grand home, look no further. With sealed roads to your front gate and located right in the heart of the Dinninup townsite, 26 Six Mile Road is a property that you will always wished you owned.
