Slip into Broome time
A slice of outback paradise is up for grabs in the sought-after pocket of Waterbank, encapsulating the epitome of Broome living.
Set amongst rocky outcrops and native bushland, privacy and tranquility go hand in hand at 14 Williams Road, with the harmonious surrounds of the Indian Ocean and Coconut Wells at your doorstep.
According to Belle Property Broome Principal Tamyla Strahan, sprawling 9.6-acre Waterbank properties such as this are hard to come by and cater to a range of homebuyers.
“A few of the neighbouring properties lease out their homes as luxury stays and that could easily be replicated for this property,” she said.
“The home would also suit somebody wanting to get out of the hustle and bustle, as it’s quite isolated from everything – you can really switch off in this location.
“It would also suit a family, as it’s got such great lifestyle opportunities with the beach nearby and a large space for the kids to run around.”
Nestled between rolling green lawns and dotted palms, the double brick-rendered home displays an expansive layout.
As a bright and airy space, the open-plan dining and living area flows seamlessly around the family-sized kitchen with a 900mm gas oven, Caesarstone benchtops and a feature timber breakfast bar.
An entertainer’s dream, every room in the house captures the iconic vista views through louvre windows that also welcome the sea breeze.
“The views are striking, every room in the house has a view of the ocean – you can be standing in the kitchen and see Gantheaume Point Lighthouse,” Ms Strahan said.
For when you want to take entertaining outside, the woodfire pizza oven, mud crab cooking station and commercial-sized grills are sure to be a hit among guests.
On balmy days, enjoy a dip in the below-ground pool – complete with a pebblecrete finish as you overlook the stunning gardens and ocean outlook from the property’s highest point.
Surrounded by large swathes of timber decking, the adjacent pool house features a water closet and a separate laundry.
Back inside and cleverly separated into their own zones, the generous bedrooms are designed for the tropical climate, with cool tiles and wide-reaching louvre windows.
In the master bedroom, wake to the rugged terrain outlook of your private coastal oasis before getting ready for the day.
Elsewhere on the property is an independent one-bedroom, one-bathroom caretaker’s residence that could also double as a teenager’s retreat.
“If you only want to use the property on weekends, you could have the unit for the caretaker and still live in the main house privately – the layout is quite flexible,” Ms Strahan said.
Bursting with sustainable features such as a 15-kilowatt solar system with brand new 300 ampere-hour batteries, a 24 kilovolt-ampere backup Olympus generator, two drinkable bores and a 45,460L water storage tank, the property allows you to live completely off-grid with the added bonus of no power or water bills.
“You could even set up your own mango farm – there’s certainly enough water supply,” Ms Strahan said. “The water is very drinkable too, and the soil is very fertile.”
