About Nerida Schmidt
When I was a little girl I used to go to this spot on our farm that looked over the Chittering Valley and I used to think it was the Edge of the World, because it was the edge of mine - the name stuck and it has become known that in our family ever since. I used to say that when I grew up I wanted to build a house and live on the Edge of the World with my family and sure enough after getting married on the spot 18 years ago, our beautiful weekender was finished in 2008. Since then I have watched my two beautiful boys enjoy and explore the bush with our extended family and friends as I did as a kid and I look forward to many generations to come who will do the same.
Nerida Schmidt purchased this House in 2008
Why Nerida Schmidt chose Chittering
My Dad was born here and he and my beautiful Mum raised myself and my 3 siblings on the farm. They are still here, as are the four of us kids, now each with our own families and our own houses on the property. We run it as one working farm with sheep and llamas grazing and more than half of it is still virgin bush with native wildlife - kangaroos, rabbits, echidnas, the odd emu and a huge variety of birds. There is something about sitting on the deck and listening to the serenity and the sounds of the Australian bush here. There is an energy that this place has that we have all felt and have come to call "Edge Therapy". You and your family and friends can feel it too and I guarantee you will go away having been recharged and with a sense of peace after your mini-break, and all less than an hour from Perth CBD.
What makes this House unique
The Edge of the World Family Retreat has been designed to bring the family together and reconnect with nature and each other. On a wintery day you can sit in front of the double sided log fire and watch a movie or simply enjoy a glass of wine on the chaise lounges and take in the spectacular vista of the Chittering Valley while the kids play a board game. When the sun comes out enjoy your lunch or relax on the lounges on the deck, take a walk through the bush or toast marshmallows around the firepit. If you feel like venturing out into the valley there are restaurants, wineries, bakeries, orchards, and attractions a short drive away.

An incredible place in a beautiful location with a wonderful host (and doesn't hurt to have a great winery over the back fence!).
Thanks Andrew. We would love to host you again sometime.
An absolute gem - we loved our stay, you will too.
Edge of the World is one of those rare places which leaves you feeling completely satisfied with your booking from the moment you arrive.
We stayed with a group of friends and were blown away by the cleanliness of the house, the modern facilities, the tranquility and the priceless view.
There is heaps of space within the house to relax and spread out and the deck is perfect for enjoying a meal, a drink or a game of cards. The rest of the property has ample space and sights to explore.
I highly recommend venturing out at night to look at the stars - you won't get clear nights like that in the city.
The owner, Ned, made check-in and check-out a breeze and she was quick to respond with helpful answers.
I highly recommend staying here. We'll definitely be staying again.
Thanks so much Sam. I'm so glad you enjoyed the Edge of the World as much as we do. We look forward to hosting you again sometime soon!
The Edge is a wonderful place for a weekend getaway!
The views are spectacular and the children had a blast exploring outside. The house was clean and well equipped for our weekend away. The log fire was a treat and we enjoyed toasted marshmallows at the fire pit outside too.
Thanks Jo. So glad you had a lovely time. Please come again sometime soon.
Lovely country retreat
Was very easy to book and communicate with the owner. The experience was 5 star from the accomodation to the service.
Thanks Inge. We look forward to hosting you again soon!
Relax and enjoy the view
This place is the perfect location to spend a ladies retreat in winter - beautiful fireplace, small conversation corners and space to move! It’s hard to do anything else but watch the colours change over the valley below! Thank you! Thoroughly recommend it to all!
Michelle - it was lovely to have you return with your friends again this year. So glad you enjoyed the view and the peace of the beautiful Chittering Valley.
Situated in the beautiful Chittering Valley with spectacular views over the rolling hills and vineyards.
We have a new driveway at 2150 Chittering Road - more direct and straight down the fenceline.
