9kms down Brookman Rd from Meadows.
Entering through country timber gates and guarded by towering oak trees it’s obvious to see how this grand entrance provided the name for this stylish property. ‘The Oaks’ comprising some 9.18Ha (23 acres) is well fenced to two main paddocks plus several holding paddocks and is perfectly positioned opposite Kuitpo forest with direct access to its riding trails.
The individually designed home has a distinctive cottage feel about it, yet is only 7 years old. The expansive living area, highlighted by the 9ft ceilings and moulded cornicing is light filled by the large windows that offer superb views over the gum studded property. The home has been positioned to take advantage of passive heating and cooling and boasts ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning coupled with 6mm glass to the windows and extra thick audio deadening insulation to further enhance the home efficiency. The kitchen features stainless steel appliances including dishwasher and ample bench space. The home is currently three bedroom (could be utilised as a two bedroom plus office), one main bathroom and ensuite to the master bedroom plus much more. The home has a wonderful wrap around verandah with extensive old brick paving throughout.
For those hot summer days and balmy nights there is a solar heated in ground
pool with a well established garden that provides a relaxing atmosphere for all to enjoy.
Outside there is ample shedding including 50′ x 24′ Colourbond shed (5 bay) with power and hot/cold water connected and an open plan tack room for all the horse gear. This shed also has a doorway through to a concreted lean-to which is perfectly set up for all your horse feed storage.
There is also a high clearance carport which could easily be enclosed if required and is currently used to keep the horse float under cover. There is further under cover parking for 4 vehicles connected to the house. All roof areas feed a 100,000 litre water tank and this property hasn’t been anywhere near running out of water due to the excellent rainfall, in fact another tank could easily be filled.
There are two horse yards with shelters & water supply which can be used to saddle up and feed the horses before & after trail riding in the forest and also there is well built chook house and enclosed yard, allowing you to let the hens out to scratch around the paddocks during the day.
Some temporary electric paddocks exist which are easily removed to allow the cutting and baling of hay in the two main paddocks with the property producing 100x large rounds bales last season in the first cut, together with running several head of cattle which is testament to this very fertile land.
The Oaks has many other outstanding features and is suited to any pursuit. The property is in a popular commuting area to Adelaide CBD, Southern suburbs and its shopping centres and only a short drive to the fleurieu coastal towns of Victor Harbor and Goolwa. The main local towns are Meadows, McLaren Vale and Willunga.
