The Red House is an architect-designed straw bale home set on five acres of jarrah and mari forest mid-way between Margaret River town and the beaches.
Finished to the highest level, this is one of the most unusual homes in the district.
The huge open-plan living room has two sets of four-metre wide cafe-style bi-fold doors opening out to the north-facing gardens and the forest. The open-plan living room features a wide-screen, flat-screen TV with DVD player, stereo sound and hi-fi. Foxtel and terrestrial channels are available.
The solid jarrah dining table is three-metres long and seats 10 people in comfort. The second living area has a huge wood burning stove set against a granite wall.
Bedrooms are luxuriously appointed and all have big timber French doors that look out to the gardens. The beds are all hand-crafted from jarrah or tuart with top-class linen. The main bedroom has a king-size bed, the next two bedrooms have queen-size beds, and the fourth bedroom, in the tower, has a pair of king-size singles.
The main bathroom has a hydro-therapy spa bath with two pumps and 26 jets.
The gourmet kitchen has an Ilve six-burner range, an Asko dishwasher and solid jarrah benchtops.
This is a spectacular home in a gorgeous forest location close to everything. It's what "down south" is all about.
Location and surroundings
The Red House is set in a jarrah and red gum forest filled with wildflowers and grass trees. It's just ten minutes walk to the river and it's mid-way between Margaret River town and the main beaches (a ten-minute drive each way). You reach the house via a 200metre long driveway winding through the forest. "How's the serenity!" You can walk down to one of the nicest stretches of the river or cycle to Margaret River town or Cowaramup via the rails-to-trails paths that criss-cross the district.
You're in the heart of the Maragret River wine region and which ever way you turn there's a winery waiting to be explored. Swimming and surf beaches are within a short drive and the cafes, hotels and restaurants of the region are within easy driving or cycling distance.
