Country Lifestyle Retreat

‘Chambre’ – Align yourself with nature.

47 acres of striking Australian country, offering a mix of approximately 16 acres of flat land ideal for horses and a further 8 or so acres for grazing in the south eastern section. The remainder has been planted and revegetated with (originally) 3,000 native species and two wood lots of 45 South Australian Blue Gums and 150 Red Gums.

A beautiful piece of land fronted from The Glen Road and the Bremer River for approximately one kilometre right along the western boundary. Dotted with majestic 300 to 500 year old gums, a paradise for near city living and enhanced wild life for people and families aligned with nature.

The property has always run independent of mains power, via 12 solar panels on the roof, offering 2kW of power, and supported by a wind turbine (1kW) with a bank of GEL batteries which are approximately 6 years old (and quoted as having a life of up to 15 years). All professionally put together by Natural Technologies at Prospect. Backed up by a 6kva generator.

The unique home presents a huge amount of living space and is cleverly segregated into separate open plan zones. The stainless steel kitchen with gas stove and oven adjoins the dining area, which enjoys views to the flat grazing land and beyond. The view from the window above the kitchen sink presents a completely different aspect of the land from the Bremer River and surrounding gorgeous rugged country. The living space of the home is open, light and bright, and the six metre ceiling in the lounge area will certainly capture your attention. Warmth radiates from the huge, double sided, two door slow combustion heater and well placed ceiling fans help warm the whole home.

The master bedroom located on the mezzanine floor, presents excellent proportions with built in robes and enjoys a private balcony measuring 3.5m x 5m. The second bedroom is of good size and is located across from the character ‘mini-orb’ bathroom and the elevated loo with a view is ‘set to impress’!

Whilst the current owners, who have lived at the property for some 15 years, have never had the need to take river water for the garden/grounds, non the less there are two, year around permanent sizeable pools (one large pool not far from the residence), thereby offers the opportunity with riparian rights to pump water (if required) to a header tank. Rainwater is supplied to the home and garden and grounds from 2 × 5000 gallon poly tanks and 4,500 fibre glass tank up by the shed.

Points of interest;

Hot water is supplied from a near new Bosch gas hot water service.

Rain water is pumped into the home via a brand new electric pressure pump.

The home has been insulated with sisalation and insulation batts in all outer walls and the ceiling/roof.

The total living area is just over 160sqm and there is an outdoor under-cover entertainment area, overlooking the

vegetable garden.

A chook run/or dog run can also be found in the fully fenced house block.

A double garage 6m x 9m with an adjoining carport 3m x 9m.

Conveniently located from the South Eastern Freeway via Callington or Nairne, a modern eclectic home offering a lifestyle that is appreciated by those who have a definitive connection with the land and nature. With “Chambre” there is no compromise – live now!
