This is a Studio (accomodating 2-4 people in two double rooms) within the larger property of Willowood Barn. This is a unique holiday house. We have converted a large Fremantle boatshed into a huge and fun holiday home.
This is a unique property, a converted railway shed with characterful features. The central area is open-plan with a concrete floor, and is 25 metres long by 12 metres wide. The Studio is in one corner of the main barn. It is a self-contained bedsit -with a double bed and kitchen facilties. We will never have different guests in the Barn and the Studio so there is access to a large family bathroom in the main barn. In addition there is access to the large kitchen and TV snug in the main barn. If you have 4 guests then you can use the main double bedroom in the barn.
At one end is a large kitchen with a double oven, two dishwashers, and a two fridges. This opens onto a very large deck with an awning and large dining table. At the other end of the central area is a large kids play area - large enough to have a rudimentary indoor badminton court. In winter, the uninsulated main barn space may feel cold in the more open parts, but the bedrooms and TV room are made very cosy with small heaters.
The whole of Willowood Barn and the outside area, including the large deck, treehouse and adjacent lawns.
Other things to note
There is adjacent farmland - please do not climb over the fences. Please keep to the land attached to the barn and not wander over to the next door properties. Guests must be aware of fire dangers at all times. Beware of the pot bellied stove - make sure it is guarded when it is burning. There are residents on the property, so noise must be kept to a reasonable level, especially in the evenings. There are dams on the property so children must be supervised. These provide pretty views but are off limits to visitors. Be aware that snakes may be in long dry grass in summer, and spiders may be around in old buildings. The barn is kept as clean and pest free as possible for a space such as this. Please watch the bath doesn't overflow, as there is no drain in the bathroom floor.
There is a small resident dog on the property and lots of peacocks and guinea fowl, so dogs are not allowed unless by special prior approval. We expect guests to be quiet in the evening as we have two other houses that are permanently lived-in nearby. No music/noise after 9pm. No smoking due to risk of fire - outside and in.
We are a British/Aussie family, who have lived in Western Australia for the last 3 years. Willowood Barn is our holiday house. Our 4 kids love it - particularly their bedroom, the indoor games and outdoor fun.
