$450,000 to $470,000
SOLD by Paul Richards
Affectionately known as ‘The Cottage,’ this circa 1880’s home situated in a commanding position overlooking the Piccadilly Valley is one of the best located properties in Summertown. You will be hard pressed to find views to Mount Lofty and surrounding district as seen from the country style kitchen within. Recently painted, the interior is light and bright with newly laid carpet throughout the majority of the home. Thick locally sourced sandstone walls provide a dense thermal mass keeping the interior comfortable year round. The original cottage walls house the front 2 bedrooms, 3rd bedroom and lounge. Later extensions provide room for kitchen, dining, bathroom, toilet and store room.
The main entrance is framed by beautiful stain glass windows and opens outside to a peaceful setting upon the front porch. Alongside the rear entrance is the 4th bed/study/studio allowing for a retreat from the main residence. Large shedding could house two cars with space for extra storage. The allotment size of 3400sqm will provide ample space for vegetable garden, chooks and fruit trees whilst still having plenty of room for lawn and formal garden.
Having spent my childhood in the area I cannot speak highly enough of the local community, always welcoming newcomers whilst acknowledging their need for peace and quiet. An abundance of local quality produce is grown and sold at local markets and for social involvement there is a range of community groups and sporting clubs. Needless to say families with rich sporting backgrounds will be welcomed with open arms.
The local primary school is within walking distance as is the post office, family store, park and playground. Bus services run routinely from the main street to Stirling and Adelaide as does a selection of private school bus services. With 15min access to Burnside and 10min to Stirling it’s no wonder Summertown properties are so sought after.
Do not miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity!!
