'Emerald Cottage'

Break into the property market with this small acreage gem. Dreams of owning your own property where you and your horses can reside… just became a possibility…

The original Circa 1920 symmetrical ‘railway cottage’ sits on a desirable 4.719 acre parcel of land, just on the outskirts of Balhannah village.

Small acreage parcels such as this property, with the permission to keep up to 4 horses are extremely rare in the Adelaide hills. If you are not into horses then perhaps a supplementary income by way of agistment might interest you…

Facilities include an un-surfaced round yard, 4 stables, three holding yards, a day paddock and four grazing paddocks. There is also feed room and tack room with concrete floor and power. Further along the land is a high clearance 6m x 6m colourbond shed with dirt floor.


The gorgeous original railway cottage offers updated modern carpets and three double size bedrooms, (one with ceiling fan) and high ceilings. Living includes lounge room with split system air-conditioner, slow combustion log fire and direct access to the modern, renovated kitchen.


Through to the lobby offering storage space is the bathroom and combined laundry, although there are also two other options for the laundry (being in the ‘lobby/mud room area’ and or in the area with the original sink). The bathroom would respond well to an update, however, offers corner shower cavity, toilet and two door vanity. There is also a wall mounted mirror.


Access to the refurbished ‘sun-room’ is available from the bathroom, and also from both the master and third bedroom via French doors. The area provides tiled floor, and a wonderful outlook over the garden and immediate paddock.


The property enjoys mains water supply and there are also 4 rain water tanks, a brick lined well (not currently used) and a dam. The external fence offers ‘hot wire’ whilst most fences are in reasonable condition, some would respond well to an upgrade.

The rear boundary adjoins Australian Rail Track Corporation land with the rail track operating on a daily basis, and a portion of the boundary adjoins an electricity substation.


Perfect for the horse enthusiast looking for an established, character property with all of the ‘equestrian’ bells and whistles in an affordable price bracket – or just those who want some space around them.
