Rammed Earth Rural Retreat - Massive Price Reduction

Located on the outskirts of Perth is a perfect retreat, a stepping stone to a future proof style property. Located in a lovely friendly community of 5 acre properties. It provides you with privacy & or if you want it some community support & interaction. This one is 2.19 Hectares (21,900m2) or about 5 acres.
The home is located past the workshop & greenhouse area toward the middle rear in the midst of the trees. Structurally solid, made out of rammed earth & bricks & is quite lovely to behold. It has a Colorbond or metal roof, there's nothing quite like the sound of rain on a metal roof. Mind you here it is quite muted because of the insulation throughout & the height of the ceilings. The high ceilings, thick rammed earth walls & double glazed windows throughout mean it is always warm in winter & cool in summer. In addition to all of its natural insulating properties it is also fully insulated throughout & double insulated in the bedroom areas.
Then if you want to, you can cool it further with a portable refrigerated A/C. The owners purchased some years ago but never needed to use. They also have fans in the bedrooms & living areas. It's also been deigned to incorporate their use if needed through the double glazed windows.
More likely though you will want to heat the home with the wood heater or the huge wood fireplace in winter & the great thing is you have your own wood supply in abundance on the property. There's also bottled gas which is used for cooking & showers & lasts 2 people up to 10 months. There's an instant water heater without the pilot flame so gas is saved. It lights automatically on turning on hot water, as it is flow activated.
As you enter the home through the main entrance, you pass under the verandah (which runs around all sides of the home) through double glass doors & into a generous sized living, dining & kitchen area. It's a large country style kitchen with room for an island bench if wanted. There's also a breakfast style bench area with under bench storage and room to sit a couple of people comfortably. There's numerous cupboards, good sized pantry & a large old style slow combustion wood stove & if you want to cook things a bit more quickly you can always use a gas BBQ just outside under the patio. The kitchen also has double sink, exhaust fan & a new flue on the stove & of course like any good country style home there's room for a huge table. The kitchen overlooks the patio area outside & is alongside the main dining area which overlooks the main living area. Just in between the kitchen & dining area alongside the wall is a lovely wood heater centrally located in the living area.
If you want to adjourn to the main living area inside you can always move into the lounge area in which there's a grand stone wood fireplace with a lovely wood shelf above & you can't help but notice the contrasting beauty between, rammed earth & wood paneling surrounding you.
The home is also fitted with satellite TV & internet access, all fitted out which stays with the home. Apparently a new satellite has just been launched which will further enhance your internet reception even more so.
The bedrooms, bathroom & laundry are located to the rear through the hall leading from the kitchen. The bathroom with a lovely modern vanity, beautiful claw foot bath, separate shower & a second toilet. There's also a large linen cupboard just hidden around the corner in the bathroom as well.
Alongside this is the master bedroom with ensuite style access. The master has two large built in robes running the length of the wall & storage space above them. It also has a lovely large window overlooking natural forest & orchards below. Each of the other two bedrooms are smaller, but large enough to put king size or double beds. They also have large built in robes, above robe storage & space for other items as well. All bedrooms are double insulted.
The property also comes equipped with a variety of other features including a old Pizza oven (in need of repair), numerous bird cages just in case you want to breed birds or have some chickens. There's also a jet bore which has never faltered in about 30 years of running & which is also filtered from the tank to the home. The bore goes down about 100 feet and automatically maintains flow to the water tank to keep it full all the time. It is a jet flow bore which means the flow is slower but less can go wrong with it as well. Some years ago the couple used to maintain a hot house vegetable garden. The frame for the hothouse & the pump & hydro pit storage tank for the water that they used for put through the hothouse is still there & likely could still be used. They used to grow an abundance of vegetables including: tomatoes, capsicums, cauliflowers, silver beet, broccoli....The shed is powered & has an area you can lock up & also additional cover for two vehicles. It also has the vestiges of the plumbing for sewerage & shower, so you could reset it all up if yo...

Agent Reviews

Boris T.

Ian Rankin was really professional, helpful and patient with any request. Thanks a lot.

Jennifer

I couldn't ask for a better service from Ian Rankin. He is an excellent real estate person, very professional and thorough.

Owner

I found Ian's service honest and professional and would recommend him to any in the area.

Owner

Ian is very good to deal with, very helpful.
We had our property in Cardup previously advertised with another agency for some time only to put up with the selling agent's attitude and insistence to keep dropping our asking price to below the worth of just the land. Our property sale was going to be a bit of a challenge from day one as we had already vacated the property to relocate interstate - the agent was taking advantage of this and not being very proactive with our sale. We finally had enough of this and decided to change agencies. After a short 'google' search Ray White Southern Star was our choice. We simply cannot speak highly enough of Ian Rankin from Ray White Southern Star. Ian's professionalism, enthusiasm, not to mention kind and helpful manner was second to none. Right from our first phone call with Ian to list our property he showed us nothing but prompt, professional and courteous services and went above and beyond his roll to ensure we had a smooth and efficient sale of our property. We would highly recommend this agency and especially Ian Rankin to anyone wanting to sell a property. Thank you Ian, you turned our nightmare into a pleasant and free flowing transaction.

My savings were with NAB, therefore I applied for the housing loan with NAB. I got pre-approval, but failed to get the loan. Ian introduced me to his known loan broker who got me the loan from ANZ in one week. So Ian sold me the house and helped me get the loan. Thanks to Ian, he is a clever man!

David Whitehead- Armadale

I was very happy with Ian, his knowledge and experience was there. Very Helpful all round.

Neil Fairbrother- Seville Grove

Thank you for a great job and sincerity. Blessings.

John Santoro

Professional, hassle free sale of the property. I would highly recommend Ian for the sale of any property.
Ian spent time with us providing us with a great information pack on our first meeting.
Ian Rankin provided the best service I have encountered. His willingness to explain details and call anytime attitude was brilliant. The house sold in under a week and was a smooth easy experience. Many thanks.

Ian Rankin

"Following the recent passing of my father we contacted Ian to manage the sale of his estate. We found Ian to be sincere, easy to work with and very trustworthy. During the sale and negotiation process he went out of his way to achieve the best possible outcome as promised. We were able to achieve results in excess of $20,000 above the asking price. He was quick to resolve any and all problems and respond to our concerns and questions efficiently and without hesitation. He sought at all times to make this process as easy and stress free as possible. I would not hesitate to use Ian's services or recommend him to anyone. Chris and Belinda Somers
Ian was very supportive and professional.
Ian was so patient with me and my hearing difficulties, needing to text me to communicate which he did with unfailing courtesy.

Steve Malloch

In December 2014, I contracted Ian Rankin of Ray White Southern Star to sell my house. I found Ian to be most professional in all things needed. In this sale, from advertising to home open days, Ian kept me up to date at all times on the progress of the sale, which happened in less than 4 weeks and at a very satisfactory price. For this I think you Ian.

We were really impressed with Ian over the other real estate agents we asked to inspect our house to do a valuation.Ian informed us he had already had numberous purchases looking for a home similar to ours which gave us confidence that our house could be sold quickly.After signing up with Ian and on the very first viwing prior to the house being advertised Ian came back with an offer over our asking price which we accepted.The only delay with the whole sale was on the part of Keystart to whom the purchases were financing through.
I have already recommended Ian twice... one property has already has been sold out of the 2 i found Ian very helpful, honest and friendly
Ian was very professional he always kept me informed and was always available when I needed an answer.
I take my hat off too Ian, He took on a difficult sale which placed him in a vulunable position. i would highly recommend Ian at any time because of his professionalism towards the handling of this sale.
