If home to you means a quiet haven with generous well-lit rooms looking out on a delightful country garden where bird song and the hum of bees provide the ambient sounds, then 3 Fresian Drive, Strathalbyn will perk your interest. Nestled at the end of a cul-de-sac the home is only a two-minute drive from the classified, well-serviced Heritage Town of Strathalbyn on the beautiful Angas River.
The en suite master queen-sized bedroom features a graceful bay window that frames a stand of Lilly Pillies set in a bed of grasses, shrubs and herbs, with a lawn to the boundary and the farmlands beyond. A bathroom cum shower/toilet facility separates the other two bedrooms. One of these can comfortably accommodate two single beds and has office space with a high-speed NBN connection directly to the home. The other queen-sized bedroom enjoys a front garden aspect, as does the cosy lounge, both discretely set back from the public road.
The pice de rsistance is, however, the vibrancy and space that is evident in the living area to the rear of the house. Overlooking the stately gum trees that bank Dawson Creek and the rolling hills to the north-west, it is the heart and hub of the house, providing a delightful flow between indoor and outdoor living. It is custom made for people who love to entertain friends and family in an idyllic setting. Included is a large state-of-the-art kitchen, featuring a Smeg induction cooker top, separate raised oven and warming drawer; a sunken double sink with mixer tap and water filter, a 3.6-meter granite-topped prep unit and a deep-drawer Miele dishwasher. Adjacent to the ample dining area (8/10 people) is an attractive lounge with a TV facility. A built-in larder with worktop is part of a separate serviced utility room/laundry, next to the kitchen. Accessed through security-screened sliding doors is the delightfully maintained garden. This can be enjoyed to the full from the capacious paved and covered entertainment space complete with cooling fan.
An automatic dripper-sprinkler system operates in the front and back gardens. Water supply to the house can be either mains or supplied from the two tanks of 5000 Imperial gallons each (45460 litres in total) at the turn of a valve. The house enjoys a very efficient reverse cycle air conditioning system and there are eight solar panels on the roof to the north. The double carport is accessed via a gravelled driveway and two roller doors.
Within the property’s ambit is a plethora of exciting attractions. Just twenty minutes away is the renowned Langhorne Creek winery region. A pleasant 30-minute drive will take you to the historic coastal town of Goolwa and Coorong National Park at the mouth of the Murray River. Easy access to the Festival City of Adelaide (one hour) is a real bonus, and the scenic and gastronomic attractions of the Adelaide Hills and Lake Alexandrina is on its doorstep.
If you make a simple tree change from the city or a seismic shift from inter-state high-priced real estate and you would like a rural feel in a delightful village setting encompassing 1193 m2, then 3 Fresian Drive is the place to consider. Should you purchase, you gain the benefit of a very attractive property at a great value-for-money price, together with the priceless appeal of a quality lifestyle that will add richness and joy to your living experience.
