Escape to fresh air and enjoy picturesque valley views while sipping your very own wine!

Hidden amongst the gorgeous rolling hills of Basket Range this charming solid stone home is set on 10.2 Ha (approx.). There’s something for everyone with a 2 acre vineyard, attractive native scrub, remnant orchards, a meandering winter creek and your very own, and very quiet, valley floor to wander and enjoy.

The Circa 1900’s home has soaring 3.3m ceilings, solid jarrah floors and has been very well maintained and upgraded in more recent years. Enjoy your morning breakfast looking out towards the vineyard whilst sitting beside the warmth of the Nectre wood heater. The studio provides an excellent space to further develop your hobby of choice. Then in the afternoon relax on the front porch and sip some local wine as the sun sets over the hills beyond.

Currently sheep and Freckles, the beloved horse, help maintain the property’s 12 fenced paddocks, whilst the resident kangaroo population assists with the rest. There’s scope to increase the stocking rate and/or fruit production in the nutrient rich valley floor soil. The vineyard was planted in the early 80’s with a mix of red varieties and a management arrangement is in place for this years vintage.

The main shed has had a range of uses over the years including fruit storage, wine making, sheep shearing, barrel room, cool room and comes complete with block and tackle, large work bench, three phase power and through access. Other shedding includes 2 X 2 car garages and a stable.

All this is complemented by an excellent water supply consisting of an equipped bore, and five large water tanks, including a new 50,000 litre tank.

The property’s remnant orchards and vineyard are still productive and, for the entrepreneurial buyer, take advantage of the close proximity to Adelaide for short ‘weekend getaways’ at the many picture perfect campsites (stcc) in the native scrub.

The opportunities are many and varied with land of this size, in this beautiful location, only 15min to Magill. This is a must see property for buyers wanting a secluded hills lifestyle.
