Country Cottage with Panoramic Views

You will not see a site like this again. Hidden behind a hedge down a short laneway off Summertown’s main street sits this quaint cottage positioned perfectly for panoramic views of vineyards, native bushland and Mt Lofty Summit.  The current owner has worked hard to make the property as self-sufficient as possible in order to live a simpler life.

‘I love walking around the property & surrounding countryside, smelling the fresh air, enjoying panoramic views, watching birds and enjoying the quietude of the place……I have regenerated myself.’

The cottage has been re-wired and re-roofed to support the solar panel installation.  Many different varieties of fruit trees are mature and prospering in the rich soils, cooler hills weather and higher altitude while an extensive vegetable patch thrives beside the chook coop.  Many trees have been planted to provide privacy without losing the views and the 1ha property is easily maintained.  A large 30,000 gallon tank and 2 smaller settling tanks (2300 gal ea.) store ample water catching a rainfall of over 1000mm a year on average.

Internally the home maintains the cottage vibe through carefully selected colours and finishes.  The original four main rooms are now dinning, main bed, 2nd bed and a relaxing lounge with slow combustion Nectre Heater.  A Northern sun room spreads light over the page of your relaxing book, while adjacent is a study/4th bed.  With views over the valley the 3rd bedroom is entered via the central lounge.  Finally the kitchen and bathroom sit on the Southern side of the home which allows for easy access to the rear garden and outdoor entertaining area.

Any additional money spent on this asset will be well rewarded, whilst it still remains quite comfortable as is.  Government restrictions are unlikely to allow further subdivision in the area therefore any further development will have minimal impact on this holding.  Do not hesitate, this is a prime property.
