Fully Self Sustainable Property on one hectare
22 year old timber frame home with three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large cellar.
The large family home is in excellent condition and has extensive gardens and orchards. It is located in a semi-rural setting with bitumen road frontage, on the northern side of the Strathalbyn Township, only 20 minutes’ drive to the freeway.
Built in Australian colonial style, the home has wide shady verandas all around and faces north to catch the best of the winter sun. With a wide central hallway and lots of built-in storage, the house has leadlight features in several windows.
There is a spacious lounge with an adjacent family or dining room. The large open plan country kitchen comes complete with an electric stove and well stood wood stove. A 3.6×3.6m cellar is below the kitchen, ideal for storage of food or wines.
The main bedroom has a walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom. A generous size family bathroom features leadlight window panes. The large laundry has a third toilet.
There is a delightful paved pergola, off the back veranda, for pleasant outdoor living. The property has a separate outside guest room and various outbuildings including a shed/workshop and stable.
Independent power is supplied by rooftop solar panels for electricity generation. Abundant rainwater is caught and held in several tanks, these supply the house and grounds. Mains power and water are also connected. The established gardens produce an incredible range of herbs, fruits and vegetables.
Produce not usually associated with the Adelaide Hill or Strathalbyn; bananas, avocados and macadamia nuts are produced here in quality! A well-presented home and grounds established with self-sufficiency in mind.
