Lifestyle Retreat With The Lot!
Drive 5 minutes from Meadows and you will find this stunning lifestyle retreat.
The home is full of character and has features that make it quite unique. The original section of the house was built over a hundred years ago but has been progressively added to and very recently, comprehensively renovated and modernised.
With veranda front and rear it has been designed to suit the Adelaide Hills weather perfectly.
There are up to 5 bedrooms or 4 and a study, 2 of which have ensuite bathrooms making one an ideal guest suite. In total there are 3 bathrooms plus an extra toilet in the laundry/mudroom. The modern fully equipped kitchen adjoins the spacious dining room which opens onto the lounge room through double sliding doors. A very large combustion heater has been cleverly placed to ensure the heat through the whole home. The rear undercover entertaining deck is accessed from this main living area.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, including one with an ensuite as well as a casual sitting room. This opens out onto the balcony which runs the length of the upper floor.
The double garage, under the main roof has twin auto doors and is accessible from the house.
In addition to the lovely home, the external infrastructure is extensive. There are three sheds, one, on two levels, could easily be converted to stables or used for an internal holding area for stock as it has been in the past. Another very large implement/hay/ vehicle shed has an extra high clearance roof and the other built closer to the house, was sited to be easily converted into a studio or retreat for the kids.
Great rainwater storage with the roof capacity to increase it significantly, two dams that are gravity fed from a storage tank for stock and garden watering, and good fencing make this worthy of your interest.
Until recently this property was the home of the multi-award winning Marquez Alpaca Stud but is eminently suitable for other stock interests. The pastures are excellent and annually a large amount of hay has been cut and baled.
There is also the added benefit of 2 x 6kw solar systems with 5 kw inverters, one of which is equipped with a 10kw storage battery, solar hot water, reverse cycle ducted air conditioning downstairs and satellite internet connectivity complete this stunning character and feature packed lifestyle property.
The 53 acres (approx.) is very manageable and if you have been searching for a great home on a few acres then this property is a must see!
