Set overlooking rolling green hills, on the outskirts of Albany, this magnificent property has been designed to replicate the very best of English countryside living.

With its gabled roof-line, flat, shingle-like tiles and double-brick construction, this home exudes class and quality.

Neat hedged gardens, secret courtyards and pretty planter boxes surround the home ensuring a beautiful outlook in all directions.

The entrance of the hall is wide and large. Picture rails frame the space and extend throughout the home. Along with dado rails, detailed doors, striking architraves and intricate wallpapers, the home is fitted out with the most beautiful mouldings and joinery, just what you would expect in an English cottage.

A large living area connects to the entrance. Here, a bay window looks out onto the beautiful gardens and a large feature fireplace takes centre stage.

There is a large formal dining area in this space too.

It is ideal for entertaining and there is plenty of space for guests to spill out into the gardens or additional entertaining spaces.

A door leads into the conservatory, an ideal spot for a cup of tea while you enjoy the rural outlook from the sheltered and bright space.

A sunroom also adjoins to the living space.

This beautiful area is warm and bright. The symmetrical gardens of the courtyard are the view, along with trickling water fountains.

The kitchen of this home is something really special. Not a detail has been spared. A country kitchen design, benches form a U-shape with an island bench in the centre. The pastel and cream-coloured cabinetry contrasts with timber tones and white benchtops.

A big Falcon oven provides the perfect space for cooking and pretty cupboards and shelves nearby allow for your cooking utensils and herbs to be stored in style. A cosy dining space is found across the bench.

The main bedroom of the home has been beautifully designed.

A king-sized space, the bedroom has a large walk-in robe and a door out into the courtyard. It also has a spacious ensuite with a large bath, shower, toilet and vanity.

The home also has a large guest room, a huge study or additional bedroom and another small living room for crafts or hobbies. There is a pretty family bathroom and a large laundry with lots of bench space and storage cabinets.

Outside beautiful gardens are scattered over the 2.37ha property. An indoor swim-spa pool is found off the courtyard and is warmed by solar heating.

There is also an orchard and a vegetable patch.

A double garage joins onto the home.

Here there is parking for two cars and extra space for storage. There is also a drop down-ladder that services the attic.

There is a large workshop with separate spaces for machinery, storage and parking. Few homes are finished to this level of detail.

The home is open this Saturday 2.30pm to 3pm.
