Charming Home in Picturesque Surroundings
Built to the highest standards in 1938 this grand home has withstood the test of time. The solid stone construction is a clear demonstration of the quality workmanship of the era and the high pitched roof, ornate ceiling roses and polished timber floors add further charm to this character filled home.
The home layout is typical of the times, and easier to heat, with separate dining room and formal lounge as opposed to open plan design. The kitchen has an abundance of storage, newly installed appliances and adjoins a cosy nook perfect for a breakfast for two. Further practical rooms include the mud room/laundry for a winters day, sunroom – which takes in the delightful vineyard view over the neighbouring property, and a large study which could double as a library or kids room.
Each bedroom is spacious enough for a personal study space, play space or further storage units and furniture. All have their own outlooks onto the gorgeous garden surrounds. The main bedroom, with ensuite bathroom, has access to an open patio looking north with its very own, and quite unique, external spiral staircase.
The garden is a joy to behold all year-round. Exquisite trees, often undervalued, such as Beech, Ash, Birch, Magnolia and Holly provide shade to a large variety of Camelias, Fern, Rose and Hydrangea. Shedding too is abundant with 3 phase power to the workshop, car storage, garden shed, stables and original coke (coal) room.
Summertown is fast becoming a popular location for those wanting a private relaxing lifestyle amongst the Adelaide Hills whilst still having relatively easy access into Adelaide via Greenhill Road or, for more Southern areas of greater Adelaide, the South Eastern freeway.
Whether it’s a more environmentally connected upbringing for your children, or a place to watch the leaves change colour in your retirement, this home is sure to capture your imagination.
