Lifestyle with old world charm!
This is a unique 2.76ha. (approx. 6.8 acres) rural lifestyle property that is surrounded by vineyards and set in the picturesque foothills of Sellicks Hill, and the vistas include absolutely stunning views out to the coast. No matter where you kick back for a relax on this property you’ll enjoy excellent views.
The principal residence is on the local heritage register as a former farmhouse that was initially owned by D & M McKenzie in 1853. The internal and external living spaces of the residence have been respectfully upgraded over the years for improved comfort and family functionality, while maintaining the historical, economic and social themes related to the farming and settlement of the western section of Willunga in the 19th century. The residence consists of 3 good sized bedrooms, a modernized bathroom incl. a spa, a large living room, country-style kitchen with a meals area. A comfortable temperature is maintained throughout the residence with the solid masonry walls and a split system RC air conditioner. A mud room comes off the kitchen/dine area and that also has access to the laundry which includes a shower. A large outdoor undercover area comes off the living room to provide an excellent indoor/outdoor space with those stunning coastal views, for entertaining and family relaxation. The large back yard of the residence is well fenced providing a safe and secure environment for children and pets.
There are also 2 separate manager’s living quarters under one roof that are a short walk from the residence; each has a bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen and living room. The facility also includes an outdoor living area, separate rainwater storage and septic.
Other features of the property include;
• Large c1920 shearing shed with workshop, and rainwater storage.
• Large shed/workshop on 3 phase power
• Equipped bore on 3 phase power
• Mains power and mains water
The original very small vineyard that was evident in the aerial photos of the property has now been pulled out. This presents to the new owner a large cleared area of approx. 3 acres that could be used for looking after a few animals (e.g. horses).
Whilst offering a relatively secluded lifestyle the property is around 10 minutes away by road to the local shopping and services, and also some of the best white sandy beaches in SA. The Adelaide CBD is a comfortable 60 minutes away via the Southern Expressway.
The potential for this property is immense, offering scope for a multitude of uses and activities. This is certainly a must see!
