The Advertiser - Real Estate
Charm, space & elegant grace
Leave your troubles behind in this versatile and character-filled double delight
If it’s a place with a bit of character charm and history you’re after, look no further than this stunning McLaren Vale home.
The property consists of not one, but two separate homes, connected by a veranda. The first of these is an original single-bedroom 1920built railway cottage, complete with Baltic pine floorboards and an open fireplace. The selling agent suggests it could be an ideal teenager’s retreat or a great bed and breakfast for savvy investors. Complete with its own bathroom, high ceilings and a kitchenette, it’s its own self-contained home.
Just a few steps away is the 2002-built home, which is complete with two bedrooms. The master suite sits at the rear of the home and has a walk-in robe, a ceiling fan, a box bay window and an ensuite with a shower, a toilet and a vanity unit. The second bedroom is nearby, and a laundry sits near the entrance, which is a set of french doors that lead into a long entry hall.
A spacious and light-filled open-plan kitchen, dining and living area occupy the entire left side of the floorplan, with 3m high ceilings giving the area a sense of space, and an exposed Fleurieu limestone wall adding some strong visual interest. The kitchen features Baltic pine cupboards and jarrah benchtops, a pantry, a wall oven, an electric cooktop with rangehood, a double sink and overhead cabinetry with leadlight details.
A reverse-cycle airconditioner, and a ceiling fan ensure the space stays a comfortable temperature year-round.
The home has a carport with an automatic roller door, a rainwater tank, two sheds and sits on some 1197sqm of established gardens and is close to the regions many tourist attractions, including Serafino winery, almost 100 other cellar doors, the world famous D’Arenberg cube and the coast at Moana and Maslin Beach
