    Spotlight on Prevelly

January

Why not make the move to one of the most beautiful spots in the south west, Prevelly? We’ve just the property for you too - 1 Chapel Place - says Stocker Preston’s John Mondy.

Surf, sophistication, seclusion.


These three words come together to describe this beautiful home that fits perfectly into the coastal landscape.


Located in the heart of the Margaret River Region, it has the most enviable, uninterrupted views that capture some of the world's best surf breaks and sunsets.


Architecturally-designed and built by the reputable Jarrah Holst, this stunning home is the uncompromising result of the perfect blend of art, design and functionality.


Spanning two floors with excellent separation, the deluxe master suite is situated on the upper level, harbouring impressive ocean views and a designer bathroom.


It has spacious living rooms and balconies on both levels, with three guest bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor.


The chef’s kitchen has a superior finish, highlighted by the ample storage and Miele appliances. Positioned in the most exclusive cul-de-sac in the small coastal hamlet of Prevelly, this property is the ideal private and peaceful retreat, but still only footsteps to the beach, cafes and restaurants.

 

The history of Prevelly
As you turn down the hill to Prevelly and take in the vast expansive views of the Indian Ocean, you will see a small white chapel position high up on the ridge over looking the the small coastal hamlet.


It’s the Chapel of Saint John The Theologian which was built and opened in 1979 by Geoff Edwards who owned a large parcel of land on the coast, 10kms from the townsite of Margaret River.


In 1941, he served with the 2/11th Infantry Batallion in the Battle Of Crete. During the German occupation, he was a prisoner of war, but subsequently escaped and was hidden and cared for by the Monks of Preveli Monastery.


In honour of the people who cared for and protected him, Geoff built the Hellenic Chapel, on the hill overlooking the sea on Wallcliffe Road.


In the 1960s he subdivided the area and the developers named it Prevelly. Several streets were also named after the families and monks who saved him, for instance Vattos Way and Papadakis Road.


Geoff was awarded an order of Australia Medal (OAM), on 7th April, 2000, for services to the Greek Community.  PL
