Description from manager

Fragrant Harbour is arguably the defining beachhouse in the central Margaret River region. Beautifully designed by a renowned local architect and positioned on an elevated ridge, it faces directly west and has fantastic 180 degree views of the Indian Ocean all the way from Redgate to Rivermouth and Surfers Point. The ocean, which is little more than a stones throw away, is clearly audible from the property and you can gaze for hours at the surf and the whales breaching the surface right in front of you on their annual migration, not to mention the spellbinding sunsets each evening. It is also one of the few houses in the region to boast a swimming pool, and this 12m resort style design is undoubtedly the loveliest. If its the ocean you prefer, delightful sandy beaches are just a 10 mins walk away. The house itself is stylishly furnished and set up for both entertaining and privacy; you can relax in any of 4 lounges and choose between 4 dining areas. Fragrant Harbour is simply awe-inspiring and truly unique.

Upon entering the open plan living area it is immediately apparent the owners have lived in Asia, with the tasteful furnishings an eclectic blend of Australian and Asian designs and original art adorning the walls. A state-of-the-art kitchen designed for entertaining forms the heart of the home, with a huge Corian stone wave design bench top, a banquette seat framing the views of Gnarabup Ridge to the east, Nespresso coffee machine, chefs grade appliances and pantry. The main lounge with curved screen TV is to one side and an 8 seater marble dining table is to the other.

Sleeping arrangements comfortably accommodate 8 in the form of 3 master bedrooms, all with their own en-suite bathroom and shower, and a flexible bedroom. All have ocean views. On the ground flooris the largest master with king size bed, and also the flexible room which itself sleeps up to 4 guests and can be set up as either 4 x single beds or 2 x king size beds. A large bathroom with shower and spa bath, and separate toilet, are directly opposite. Upstairs are 2 further masters, 1 with king size bed and 1 with queen size bed, both with spectacular ocean viewsand from where you don't need to open the windows to hear the ocean pounding onto the shore nearby.

Also upstairs is an adult retreat with stunning antique Chinese day-bed. A defining feature of the house are the sliding glass stacker doors that open up the retreat and bedrooms to a huge communal terrace with sitting and dining areas; a spectacular place to admire the views and the stars over a few glasses of Margaret River wine.

The rear of the property has been landscaped into 4 levels, with sweeping vistas of the Gnarabup ridge and all well protected from the winds coming from the west. Sliding stacker doors lead from the house to a patio entertainment area complete with spa and 8 seater dining area (the spa will be cleaned and serviced before each arrival but please ensure you remember to turn the spa on on arrival in order for it to heat up for your use) On the next level down is a kids trampoline. One level further down boasts a lawn, hammock and kids playhouse. Then right at the bottom is the glorious solar heated resort-style swimming pool, with Balinese bale, surrounded by bamboo and manicured gardens. Pool toys and inflatables for the kids, as well as snorkeling gear for the beach, are all provided by the pool. There is another lounge/dining area featuring flat-screen TV and Wii kids entertainment system by the pool, together with a bathroom, kitchenette and outdoor shower.

There is a computer programmed CBus lighting system and Sonos sound system to ensure the house will look and sound great. The entire home is heated or cooled via reverse cycle air-conditioning in every room, and there is WIFI throughout.

Gnarabup is by the beach yet also in the heart of the Margaret River region. Amazing beaches are only a 10-minute walk away, as is The Common restaurant/bar and The White Elephant Cafe at Gnarabup Beach. Sea Gardens restaurant and the local shop in Prevelly is a short drive away. Slightly further afield, Margaret River town and some of the regions very best wineries including Leeuwin Estate, Voyager Estate, Xanadu Estate, Watershed, Cape Mentelle, Redgate and Stella Bella Wines are all within a 15 mins drive.

Although the property is not generally pet-friendly, well-trained dogs may be considered.

**For couples wanting a getaway, we can offer a 20% discount on the tarriff for only using the master bedroom and main house. All other bedrooms will be closed off and unobtainable**
