'Clifton Hill' Once in a 50 year opportunity! Character Wistow stone homestead on approximately 20 acres.

This stunning property is what dreams are made of!

Character Wistow Stone homestead set on approximately 9 hectares of rich pasture. The home is surrounded by established gardens including majestic gums, native garden, veggie patch and a magnificent 100 year old mulberry tree. Brilliantly positioned to take in the breathtaking views to Lake Alexandrina.

The homestead has 3 large bedrooms and a study, 2 bathrooms, 2 living areas, kitchen/dining and a comfy sunroom. The alfresco living is exceptional and positioned alongside the saltwater swimming pool and spa. The land consists of 3 large paddocks with well maintained fencing. Suitable for horses or stock, incorporating a dam, bore and multiple rainwater tanks. With extensive shedding including workshop/studio/barn/stables.

This original homestead was built by Cornish immigrants Edward Hender for his son in the 1880’s, and has been lovingly restored by its current owners, the Pfitzner family. Every care has been taken to preserve and highlight the charming features which include high ceilings, sash windows, and original fireplaces, then beautifully decorated in keeping with the era. Walking into this character home you immediately feel the warmth and history envelop you like a big hug.

At “Clifton Hill” in one of the extensive sheds the South Australian iconic brand “Pfitzner Furniture” was birthed. The details in the home have been hand crafted by John Pfitzner including the architraves, fireplaces, kitchen, and all cabinetry. What an honour to be a part of the continued history of this superb place.

This is truly magical, making it a perfect family home to enjoy the good old outdoors, riding horses or playing with the dog. Creating the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of work/life the possibilities are endless.
