Meerilinga Estate at 75 Johnson Road WilyabrupW.A. 6280, lies nestled deep in the heart of Margaret River’s golden triangle; a world-class wine region flanked by spectacular raw and rugged coastline and with over 20 wineries within a 10-kilometre radius.
The tourism/viticulture zoning of this property allows for myriad uses. The gravelly soil has been “resting” for over 25 years. This area is the best of the best: Wilyabrup’s terroir has nurtured the high-calibre neighbouring wineries and blocks of vines: Clairault-Streicker, Burch Family Wines, Cape Lodge Wines, Driftwood, Knee Deep, Carpe Diem, just to name a few.
Further, there has been prior approval to build five chalets. The property would be ideal for horses to, with its rich pastures and sensational riding trails. In addition, the brick sheds on the property would be ideal for stables.
The main house was modelled on the Heritage-Listed Meerilinga House in West Perth, built in 1897. In its current-day homage, the clever use of lime stone, reclaimed timber and period glass throughout enhances the aesthetics of this distinctive design.
At a size of 438 square metres, the main house is replete with soaring ceilings, turrets and gables, the main house spans three floors.
The first floor comprises a generous family kitchen and dining room opening onto a spacious living room; both enjoying large, open fireplaces. There is also a bedroom, bathroom and laundry on this level.
The second floor boasts two master bedrooms and two further bedrooms, each with French doors opening onto the sun-drenched Northwest facing wrap-around balcony. Two of these bedrooms have large, open fireplaces – just right for those chilly winter nights. There is also a second bathroom, with a classic claw-foot bathtub. Plans for a proposed third bathroom ensuite for the master bedroom are available for any interested parties.
The third floor is a spacious loft area, a 6th bedroom or games room – and a fabulous tower section – perfect for a meditation retreat. It’s multi-functional and could also suit a parents’ retreat, home office or studio.
Behind the home, there is a self-contained two-bedroom guesthouse of 77 square metres that would be an ideal home for a caretaker, to rent out or for the teenagers.
The outdoor entertaining areas set within the grounds of this rare estate include an in-ground swimming pool with spa, a gazebo in the front gardens and the “folly” – a turret set in a koi-filled moat.
There are well-maintained gardens around the home, a vegetable garden & orchard, and acres of bush and rolling pastures.
The property boasts extensive machinery sheds, workshops & storage; all on concrete slabs. The main shed is 200 square metres with a Tudor-influenced attic room while the two smaller sheds are 36 square metres each. There are two water tanks holding 200,000 litres and a water bore near the orchard.
A full three-month maintenance program has just been completed with new gutters & down pipes and extensive clearing of the bush – rendering the property bush fire compliant. The roads and tracks have been upgraded, a new pool fence installed and the gardens and grounds brought into order. New owners will enjoy carefree use of the property for many years to come.
A blue chip asset of this class offers the astute investor the privacy and potential to realise the unique value that a property of this nature presents as well as what a fabulous family retreat or home it will make.
We cannot underscore enough how rarely a prestige property of this quality, distinction and elegance come available to the market for the next generation of owners.
