LAND: 8.192ha (20 acres). Magnificent lifestyle property that is positioned a very scenic 30 minute drive from Tea Tree Gully and Gawler. This property just north of Birdwood is semi-secluded, useable and totally enjoyable. At one end of this quiet, no through, country road is the property, while at the other is the Mount Crawford forest reserve, which is ideal for horse riding and bushwalking. This location is great for accessing the Heysen Trail and Kidman Trail. There are areas of the property that are purposeful for horses, such as the levelled area for an arena if desired. Entrance to the property is through the gates adjoined by timber fence railing, giving the property a welcoming rural feel. The mature shrubs and trees that line the drive in, along with the home gardens, are a beautiful blend of mature ornamental trees, low maintenance conifers and ground covers, colourful perfumed roses and extensive use of large moss rocks. This setting attracts an array of birdlife and native fauna that all seem to share an appreciation for the property, which is fenced into seven paddocks, all with water points. The nature of the land is modestly undulating and features some majestic, century old, gum trees. There are two dams on the property, one located in the large southern paddock while a jetty extends out into the dam nearer to the home. The grounds are watered from the bore with its Grundfos pump.

RESIDENCE: Purposefully designed for bright open plan living and to take advantage of the setting is this delightful solid double brick home, which was completed in the early 1990’s. A gentle, split level separates the 208.9m2 (22.5 squares) of living which all adds to the charm and individuality of the home. Under the up to 12’ feature timber ceilings, the massive, open plan living area is warmed by a new freestanding, slow combustion, log fire with fan, which is fuelled by the property’s generous ongoing supply of firewood. In Winter nothing is better than a glass of red by a wood heater in this location. For immediate year round comfort the large ‘Emailair’ split system, reverse cycle air conditioning unit is on hand. Centrally located in the home, this section accesses the entrance porch, main bedroom and second bedroom and divides this upper level from the step down, lower level by a low wall. The kitchen is well appointed with a double sink, dishwasher, handcrafted timber cupboards, new Westinghouse fan forced oven, ceramic hot plates and a large walk in pantry. The kitchen adjoins the casual meals area, which all has the lovely outlook to the new verandah and gardens. There are built in cupboards in the laundry and the beautiful main bathroom which, like the ensuite facilities, has been fully updated. The main suite also incorporates a large dressing area with built in mirrored robe, which could be used as a study, nursery or potentially a fourth bedroom. The other bedrooms are both very generous in size and include ceiling fans and one has built in robes.

IMPROVEMENTS: There are three structures adjoining the home, the first being the entrance porch. Next a 24’ x 24’ carport with timber balustrade and lined ceiling. This triple carport has a gabled roof with attractive trellis insert. The third is a new Colorbond front verandah which is such a delightful spot in which to relax and watch over the property. All these structures, along with the entire home surround, have extensive paving that matches the home. Every lifestyle property needs a good shed and here there is a 48’ x 30’ x 10’ galvanised iron shed with two sliding doors, single access door, concrete floor and power. Inside, a fully lined and insulated section measures 30’ x 10’ and can be used as a cellar or games room. Animal and other facilities include a 30’ x 12’ shelter shed with a fully lined stable in one of the paddocks, another 36’ x 12’ shed with shelter area and other sundries. Complementing the bore is a 20,000 gallon concrete tank that supplies ample rainwater to the home. The bore pumps water into a 200 gallon plastic tank, which feeds the stock troughs and garden areas.

SUMMARY: An exceptional lifestyle opportunity and setting. Beautiful location only 10 minutes to Birdwood and Williamstown.
