Welcoming Tree Change Retreat

Situated on a small acreage off Mount Lofty Summit Rd this well designed and built home is the perfect tree change.  Hours could be spent sitting on the South Eastern balcony of this 2 storey home watching the native birds, the koala sleeping in a fork of a gum or just enjoying the fresh, clean air.

The home was built in the early 80s and is entered via the top storey.  The lounge is inviting and light due to large picture frame windows and includes access to the balcony.  A dining area alongside the lounge room seats 8 and a slow combustion heater is used to heat both spaces as well as the remainder of the upstairs rooms.  This area also has a reverse cycle air conditioner.

The kitchen design makes the most of the outlook and has been recently renovated to a very high standard with granite bench tops. Quality stainless steel appliances including Miele dishwasher, Bosch oven and induction cooktop cater for the chef of the family whilst a breakfast bench seats 4.

Other rooms upstairs include 3 bedrooms, all with BIRs, quality renovated bathroom, separate toilet, laundry, storage and of course the staircase to the lower level.

A large rumpus/family room opens from the base of the staircase providing ample room for games and family fun.  There is a 4th bedroom, wine cellar, extra storage, outside access and a workshop also housed in the downstairs section of the home.

Outside the home is surrounded by landscaped gardens and lawn allowing for a game of cricket and space for a pool. A vegetable patch thrives in the good soils and high rainfall whilst multiple fruit trees are mature and bare quality fruit in the high altitude.  A large undercover, paved entertaining area spanning the North Western side of the home has plenty of space for BBQ, wood oven, outdoor furniture and much more.

Also included in the offering is a bore, extensive irrigation system, 2 x fire pumps, 2 x pressure pump, 15,000 gallons of water storage, 6 x 6m shed, 2 car carport, dam, boundary fencing, turn around driveway and access to both Percival Rd and Mount Lofty Summit Rd.  Many walking trails are nearby, Cleland Wildlife Park is over the road and the views from Mt Lofty Summit are only a 3 min drive away.

With Greenhill Rd providing access to the CBD in 20minutes, Crafers freeway access 5min drive, and the quiet natural surroundings it’s easy to see why the current owners have cherished this home for the past 30 years.  Now it’s your turn to fall in love with Adelaide Hills Living.
