A touch of France in the hills of Bindoon


This custom-designed home, an hour’s drive from the Perth CBD, was built as a family weekend retreat and tree change.


INSPIRED by the French countryside, this custom-designed home, which is about an hour’s drive from the Perth CBD, was built as a family weekend retreat and tree change.

From the moment you drive through the stone entrance around the circular driveway lined with a rosemary hedge and past the 350 white agapanthus in the central garden, you are transcended to a place of absolute tranquility and beauty.

On reaching the stone front porch, antique French doors open into the generous living area full of warmth, light, comfort and amazing views of the countryside beyond.

The 40 degree pitched roof with exposed, painted beams is a striking feature and adds even more to the overall feeling of space.

At the heart of this room is the grand, handmade, stone fireplace, built by a local stonemason.

Two sizeable pieces of timber form the mantelpiece which adorns the front of the open fireplace, originally sourced from the old Fremantle Wool Stores.

There is also a reverse cycle, split system air-conditioning to add year-round comfort.

The open-plan living room, beautifully appointed kitchen with large Artison Farmhouse gas hotplate and electric stove, dining and sitting rooms form the main living area of the home.

Large French bi-fold doors and a corner window showcase the magnificent sweeping views of rolling hills, valleys, trees, lavender and the orchards beyond, which can be enjoyed from every aspect of this living space.

With jarrah floorboard throughout, the home is divided into two sleeping zones, one on either side of the open-plan living area.

The master suite has an oversized bedroom and generous ensuite with a marble benchtop.

The other two bedrooms are serviced by the main bathroom and separate powder room, also with a marble benchtop.


All bedrooms enjoy amazing, ever-changing views through French doors and windows.

A galley laundry leads from the carport into the side entrance of the house.

Further features include two gas hot water systems, reticulated lawns and gardens, a rainwater tank, reverse osmosis filtered water system to the kitchen and antique light fittings to the outside stone wall from the underground tunnels of Perth city.

Coupled with being a glorious lifestyle property in the Bindoon hills, this home works equally as well as a lock-up and leave holiday house.

This is an excellent opportunity to secure such a premium residence with beautiful serenity and with motivated sellers, there is the possibility to negotiate on the price.
