1.14ha (3 acres). Set on the bank of the Torrens River this red brick home, with shedding, is an idyllic little lifestyle property.
LAND: 1.14ha (3 acres). Set on the banks of the River Torrens this land has a distinctive character all of its own. Entering the property there are two driveways that run parallel to each other, divided by a row of tall pines. The first is bordered by the eastern boundary whilst the other passes the shedding complex before arriving at the parking space near the home. It only takes a short stroll through the home surrounds to begin to appreciate the establishment and to see how much enjoyment can be had here. The garden paths and rock lined walls frequently lead under arbours and there is always something to grab your attention, be it the ornamental stone well, the hedges and other plants at ground level, or the koalas in the treetops and variety of birds up above. The property is adorned with many fruit bearing trees including apple, pear, apricot, peach, cherry, plum, orange, grapefruit, fig, nectarine, plus more. The home is set in an elevated position on the property and from here, the terraced grounds have gentle switchback steps that lead to the river where there is a large area of flat, parklike grasslands. This section, which can be accessed by vehicle, is a great place to play, camp, have a picnic and have pets. Numerous tall poplars line the banks of the river and the mature deciduous ash trees really do add beauty to the property. Cudlee Creek is a very scenic 20 minutes to Tea Tree Gully or Campbelltown with the Link SA school bus passing the property.
RESIDENCE: Constructed in 1979, the home has a classic red brick exterior under a tiled roof. Inside, the wide entrance foyer has been cleverly converted, due to its size, into a purposeful office with shelving. Having its own entrance it certainly can serve as a consulting room, study, office or library. Easily re-instated, the brick archway would lead to the lounge where there are tree top views, a slow combustion heater with transfer unit and double doors that open to the outdoor entertaining deck.
The kitchen’s centrepiece is the 900mm gas cooker with matching splashback and range hood. There is a wide allocation for fridge / freezer with a casual meals area for dining. Which of the 3 bedrooms would you choose as the main bedroom? One has a walk-in robe whilst the others are slightly larger and have an outlook similar to that of the lounge. The bathroom is bright with floor to ceiling tiling and includes the 2nd toilet. Built-in cupboards are in the laundry and the home is ready to be occupied.
IMPROVEMENTS: The largest of the structures on the property is the combined garage, workshop and implement shelter with power and concrete floor; you can create, store or tinker with your hobbies here. There are numerous other outbuildings on the property including gardens sheds and a poultry house that can all serve their purpose and help make this a great little hills acreage and full time urban escape.
