Your Piece of South Australian History

Please contact Sam Lawley for further information and viewing opportunities.



Throughout our busy lives, how often do we get the opportunity to connect with a part of our wonderful state’s extensive history? Today, we do. 10-14 Cypress Drive was originally founded by Dr Alexander Charles Kelly of the Tintara Wine as an 80 acre vineyard in 1842, then known as ‘Trinity’.



More than 150 years after his formation of the Tintara Vineyard Co. and relocating to McLaren Vale, the original homestead has stood the test of time and been fastidiously cared for and updated over the years, without the breathtaking impression that this home leaves upon you being compromised.



Today, what remains of his legacy is a 1959m2 allotment of land – far more manageable than 80 acres – and an extremely generous 279m2 of internal living on, comprising:



• 5 Sizeable Bedrooms

• 2 Bathrooms

• 2 Living Areas

• Centralized Kitchen and Servery

• 35m2 Internal Rumpus Room



However, that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of what this beautifully cared for character home offers to us. For a mid ninteenth century home, the floorplan is surprisingly versatile and extremely well though out. After processing just how incredible of an impression that the front facade of the home leaves on you, you’ll discover the main entrance allows access straight into the kitchen, family and servery, leaving the more personal aspects of the home separated from your main entertaining space. At opposite ends of the home, the 35m2 internal rumpus room offers direct access to the verandah and carport, and the second living area allows for a lounge or dining space with direct access to the outdoor entertaining area.



The main four bedrooms – the largest of which is serviced by an ensuite – are situated at the front of the home, allowing for the leafy and peaceful views this property boasts without compromising privacy. Though these features are conducive to a 4 bedroom family home, there is the potential for dual living with the two south-westerly rooms having separate access to the front yard and being adjacent to one of two living areas.



Though the property is a ‘local’ heritage listing, it is a far cry from the usual restrictions placed upon ‘state’ heritage listed property, as you can see by the modern touches that have been placed upon the home over time whilst keeping the 1842 facade at the front of the home in-line with the historical presence it commands.



We’re very much looking forward to seeing who the lucky new owner of this home will be, considering how much is on offer, and how closely located you are to so many convenient local amenities. Register your interest as soon as you can:
