The property is located near to the top of Mt Duckworth (behind Yallingup) and has areas of well drained sandy soils with large stands of native trees planted on boundaries and native Peppermint trees in groves throughout the Estate.

Although irrigation is in place, neither the 14 year old 1 ac Shiraz vineyard nor the mature 200 tree olive grove require ongoing watering. The vines are also protected by vermin proof fencing and are of a maturity requiring relatively little maintenance.

The 3 x 135,000 litre steel and 2 x 90,000 litre concrete water tanks are connected to the local community bore water system and are further charged through winter via rainwater collection from all rooftops.

The Mount Duckworth Community Association Inc supplies water to these tanks from a community bore near the bottom of Mt Duckworth hill. This system is maintained via modest community rates. The purchaser of the Estate will be required to join the Association and be responsible for its annual levy.

Don't miss this Rare Opportunity:

This 16.75 acre secluded estate offers the ultimate in luxury retreat living at an asking price substantially below replacement value, with "all the hard work done" including establishment of expansive courtyards, gardens & trees.
