A unique opportunity to be able to work from home with an industrial size shed together with the comforts of a large 5 bedroom home in a rural setting.
3.61ha (8.92acres) of gum studded beauty, enhanced by the River Torrens meandering its way through the property. A quality Colonial Ranch style residence of 219.2m2 (23.5sq) of living featuring a wide, return bullnose verandah that surrounds the home. Five bedrooms, or four and a study and two large living areas. A huge industrial shed, 60ft x 25ft with a 14ft clearance, three phase power and an office plus many other improvements.
LOCATION:- Your new oasis awaits you; hidden behind the Main Street fronted homes, this immaculately presented residence offers the discerning buyer the best of both worlds. The seclusion and privacy of a rural setting, yet all the advantages of living within a township. Within a short walking distance are the local primary and high schools, child care, medical services, a variety of shops including a supermarket and a veterinary practice, as well as the local sporting ground which includes tennis and netball courts, an oval and a soccer pitch. Whether you are in one of the many rooms that feature large windows, or if you’re sitting under the wide verandah, you will be as amazed at the beautiful setting of the landscaped gardens and of the River Torrens as you are captivated by nature’s beauty: the occasional kangaroo, kookaburras laughing or even a chance to catch a glimpse of a koala in one of the majestic gums that line the river.
LAND:- 3.61ha (8.92acres) This property contains approximately 5 acres of flat pasture for grazing and hay making, fenced into four paddocks, with internal and external electric fencing. Cattle/stock yards and a loading ramp and some smaller stockyards along with some minor shedding including a hayshed or stable, means that this property could be used for a variety of purposes. Currently running Damara sheep, almost any grazing or small agricultural enterprise would be possible. Crossing the River Torrens by a purpose built, concrete tunnelled ford will lead you to another 4 acres (approximately )of land and an old ruin at the base of the gum studded rise of the Birdwood Hills. Mains water and good fencing are welcome features of this entire property.
RESIDENCE:- The large residence of 219.12m2 (23.56 squares) of luxury living, built in 1990, is of a brick veneer construction and is surrounded by wide bull nose verandah and beautiful landscaped gardens. 9ft ceilings create a very spacious and airy feel to the home, which is further enhanced by large tinted windows across the front of the home that look out across the gardens and the paddocks. A fully ducted, reverse cycle air conditioning system along with a slow combustion heater ensure that your personal comfort is well catered for.
As you walk through the entrance hall, the 5th bedroom or study is on your left – the current owner uses this room as their treatment room, then the sunken lounge invites you in to
relax in your favourite chair and the formal dining room or library adjoins. The generously sized, updated kitchen, incorporating wide bench tops with a breakfast bar, is fully equipped with a ceramic cooktop, overhead range hood, fan forced wall oven, dishwasher, dual sink with a raised water arm jet and conventional taps to make easy work for the entertainers. The kitchen overlooks the large family and meals areas which have slate flooring and full length picturesque windows and a glass sliding door, that almost brings the outside inside. Adjacent to this area is the accommodation wing with bedrooms two, three and four but which would also be ideal to be adapted to create a retreat for teenagers or when your visitors come to stay. There are TV points in bedrooms 2 and 3. The master bedroom is situated at the opposite end of the home and, again, features large windows, a generous walk-in robe and an ensuite. The main bathroom area features a powder room, bath and shower and separate toilet. The huge laundry has ample cupboard and bench space.
IMPROVEMENTS:- Complementing the 20ft x 20ft double garage and adjoining 20ft x 20ft carport with a high clearance is a substantial 60ft x 25ft steel framed, industrial type shed with a massive 14ft clearance, three phase power, cement floor, inbuilt office and powerful mercury lighting. Previously this shed was used to service semi-trailers. A large, concrete slab which is partly partitioned off provides a fantastic BBQ entertainment area underneath the large shady tree adjacent to the large lawn area at the front of the home. There are two 5,000 gallon rain water tanks plus a smaller rainwater tank. The house yard includes an electric gate.
SUMMARY:- This property is very unique as it offers the best of both worlds, a beautiful spacious home with a true rural outlook, plenty of privacy, pastured paddocks for your horse or any hobby farm interest. Plenty of space to go for a peaceful walk on your own parcel of land, yet it is tucked away from the township. This is must see property for anyone who is looking for the ability to be able to work from home or one who just requires space and comfort.
