The experience and know-how of a seasoned architect coupled with inspired creation of this modern two storey homestead embraces the wide-open views right across the vast Onkaparinga Valley through to the Mount Lofty Towers. The exterior bricks are a direct link in colour & design from the original Convict Warehouses in Sydney. The internal bricks are from the Adelaide Abattoirs & the heavy timbers from the Wool Stores.
Walking through the front door, the entrance offers lofty dimensions & the day’s troubles peel away with the realisation of a true sense of ‘we are home’… The formal lounge is breathtaking, linking to the huge kitchen family area, adorned with hearty timber beams & posts through to the large floor to ceiling windows which admirably take in the fabulous views & the large majestic gums on the land. The dedicated fireplace offers an inbuilt American Lopi Slow Combustion log fire with electric fan. Notably, the older timber style barn doors are handmade with Western Red Cedar.
Delight your culinary senses & cook up a storm in the gorgeous country kitchen, overlooking the family area. Offering a significant size island bench with in-built sink & Miele dishwasher. Fisher & Paykel appliances including a double oven & bench top hot plates and the large corner pantry offers plumbing to the refrigerator.
The striking high gable, glass atrium roof leads to the large double garage & workshop area & to the large games room, with heavy timber hand crafted exposed roof gabling featuring bracing on all joints. The roof & walls are matchboard lined & has its own separate air-conditioning. This is a room offering significant ambience – ideal for family entertainment & once again magnificent views.
Back in the main residence the Jarrah staircase leads to the upstairs landing – firstly into the Master suite. The whole suite is well proportioned including large walk in robe, en-suite bathroom with extra-large shower alcove & olde style deep set bath, & separate toilet.
There are three remaining double bedrooms upstairs, all with built in robes & a large main bathroom, plus separate toilet. The upstairs area is also linked to a full width 4-metre-deep balcony-intelligently utilised to form a roof for downstairs outside entertaining. The dedicated office downstairs offers extensive built-ins & shelving. The huge laundry offers floor to ceiling cupboards & there is also a vanity area & separate toilet.
The outside entertainment area is fully paved, & the outer perimeter has been complimented with electric remotely operated blinds on the back verandah. The remainder of the property is undulating & well fenced.
