Charm, space & elegant grace

Leave your troubles behind in this versatile and character-filled double delight

- Tom Bowden

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
