'Rose Cottage' - 3.19 acres

Every once in a while, a rare rose blooms…

Located on the outskirts of Oakbank, surrounded by large rural land parcels, ‘Rose Cottage’, proudly positioned on her own plot of just over 3.19 acres, awaits her next chapter.

Rose Cottage presents ‘olde’ world charm whilst blending courageously with a modern makeover.

From high ceilings, to underfloor heating, exposed original double brick walling to polished concrete, and gorgeous timber floors – the flow on from her original humble beginnings, through to her modern additions is admirable.

The pleasure was theirs, now it can be yours…

Delightfully deceiving in size, she is the cottage that just keeps giving. Four bedrooms, creatively situated in two separate wings, two bathrooms boasting eye catching tones and underfloor heating, a significant open plan family living area and a separate lounge room plus dedicated office – it is all here.

The dream of owning an original character cottage enhanced with a progressive modern addition is now a very real opportunity. Steeped in some of Oakbanks earliest history, ‘Rose Cottage’ has been lovingly restored and still provides some remarkable original features, from the colonial windows to the Flemish bond brickwork.

Chef’s of the household will delight in the modern kitchen as their culinary cooking creations sit picture perfect on the timber island bench. Boasting double size gas oven, dishwasher, built in pantry and stainless steel tops the kitchen flow is seamless.

Skylight windows allow natural light to flood the open plan living area, whilst a picture-perfect panoramic window welcomes the country outlook right into your living space. And if that is not enough – slide open the glass doors to the decked entertainment area taking full advantage of the delightful outlook across your paddock and the neighbouring farmland beyond.

Cool nights invite the use of underfloor heating in the open plan living area or strike up one or both slow combustion fires in either living area. Alternatively, for an easy solution to a long day – turn on the ducted reverse cycle system and enjoy near instant temperature comfort.

As the seasons change so do the vibrant garden and grounds. Lovingly landscaped with a huge lawn area and framed by flourishing plants for maximum privacy . Partially watered by the envirocycle system, yet near self-sufficient with the water wise array of long-established plants and shrubs. Recently two extra 22,000 litre rainwater tanks have been installed plus the existing galvanised tank gives a total of some 55,000 litres of rainwater supply.

For those seeking the country experience, there is room for a pony and a woolly pet or two… Or space for a large shed, tennis court or even a pool (STCC).

This is everything the ‘tree change’ is meant to be, just 30-minutes’ drive from suburban Adelaide. Unwind and enjoy true hills living.
