“THE EDGE – RETREAT” ..Slip away for awhile... (Open Winter Seasons only - April to October)
"The Edge Retreat” is a unique house overhanging a granite ridge amongst bushland in the Chittering Valley 50mins North East of Perth. This section of the property, where the land drops away has always been known in our family as “The Edge of the World”, as it enjoys spectacular views East over the Valley.
The house has been specifically designed using Energy Efficient principles, it comprises two pavilions, one Sleeping and one Living, separated by a 3.5m Breezeway Deck and showcases how to “live simply”.
-Living Pavilion contains Kitchen, Meals & Living Rm (Wood Fire, TV, Games, Books etc)
-Sleeping Pavilion caters for 4 Guests (2 Couples - 2x QS Beds) or 5 if you include the Daybed, a Bathroom, Laundry and Storage Cupboard.
-Campfire Pit (called The “Circle of Truth” as you mustn’t lie when you sit around it)
-Rustic Outdoor Bath-House (2 x Recycled Hot Tubs)
Life is “slow and easy” at The Edge Retreat.
This house is set up for serious Chill Time so relax, light the fire, enjoy the peace and quiet, go for long walks, visit the local wineries (Stringy Bark Winery within walking distance) Read a book, sit on the Deck amongst the trees, or around the campfire at night, soak in the Outdoor Hot tubs, generally get away from the hassles of everyday life. …..Whatever you decide, you will sleep well and be rejuvenated here.
The Lower Chittering Valley is 50mins North East of Perth at the Northern end of the Darling Scarp Ranges. The property borders Chittering Road and is a 380 acre working farm of sheep and crops. Natural Bushland consists of Jarrah, Banksia, Red & White Gum Trees, wildflowers and Ancient Grass Trees. The scenery is breathtaking, its undulating hills with an interesting mix of natural bushland, vineyards, orange orchards and wildflowers make it an attractive drawcard for creative minds -artists, photographers, writers etc and the Retreat has be hired occasionally for yoga orTai Chi weekends.
In the interests of sharing this amazing location with others and to ensure minimal disruption to the farm and Bushland, the retreat is open only from April - October, to small groups that we know will appreciate and respect the surroundings. Best time to stay is Spring (September, October).
