RICH in history as well as luxuries, this original homestead farmhouse in Hallett Cove boasts a sense of tranquillity and sensational views.
The 110-year-old property is set on two titles, with one block on 1555sq m and the other 835sq m.
Agent Nick Daniel is also the owner of the property, which he is passing on after more than eight years of living it up.
‘‘I sold it to a guy who only had it for 10 months and he said ‘Why don’t we swap homes?’’’ Mr Daniel says. ‘‘He knew how much I loved it.’’
The home was built in 1900, but has been renovated with many modern touches.
Mr Daniel says the best aspects of the property are its space, quietness and views.
From the back veranda you can look out over the picturesque swimming pool, with a mini golf course running alongside.
These areas make the home great for large-scale gatherings, and a self-contained accommodation wing of the home supports this well.
For the creative chef, there is a large kitchen with an island bench and a beautifully maintained garden to grow your own herbs and spices.
Landscaped gardens run the length of the driveway.
Ample parking space is available off-road and in the triple carport.
The master bedroom suite has a stylish walk-in dressing room, and each of the other three bedrooms are generously sized.
A 100sq m ballroom is also likely to be a drawcard, Mr Daniel says.
‘‘The beautiful ballroom has got full cornices around the lights and big bi-fold doors, which open out on to the veranda.
Despite its secluded appearance, Mr Daniel says the home is only a short walk away from a few shopping centres.
‘‘It’s very handy to the shops, about 400m from Barramundi Drive and only about 800m to the main shopping centre,’’ he says.
