GET­TING in touch with na­ture is part of the charm of an ‘‘oa­sis’’ of an Ethel­ton prop­erty. Owner Chantell Mur­phy says they have been there for only 18 months but have en­joyed it through­out the year.

‘‘All of the plants in the gar­den are na­tive and we have na­tive birds come and visit us as well,’’ she says.

‘‘There is a frog pond out­side and you can hear the frogs most of the year.’’

She says the beau­ti­ful space in and out of the house made it easy to imag­ine liv­ing there for ‘‘ages’’ but she is pass­ing it on to an­other lucky owner.

‘‘I think we bought the house be­cause we’ve got a grow­ing fam­ily and could see the po­ten­tial for all of them (the chil­dren) to grow up here,’’ she says.

Three well-sized bed­rooms make the house suited to fam­i­lies, while the light­filled fam­ily room has plenty of space.

Dou­ble doors open to a shaded and paved pa­tio and there is a sec­ond pa­tio out­side the for­mal lounge on the west side. The ex­ten­sion in­cludes a stu­dio or home of­fice ad­join­ing the liv­ing room.

Ade­laide CBD is a 20-minute drive away and there are shops at nearby Sem­a­phore and West Lakes.
