Gently rolling gum studded land of some 43 acres, will appeal to farmers, hobby farmers and city folk wanting a retreat with a few animals and a friendly country way of life that their friends can only talk about. This property has been tightly held over the last 45 years, by the current owners. It offers the lucky buyer of the property all sorts of options.
The land, following the valley between Echunga and Meadows, is some of the best in the Hills. It is gently sloping and suitable for pasture and livestock. Its 6 paddocks drain into its 2 Dams, whilst a bore is also available, but in need of maintenance. The property has 2 road access.
Picturesque Echunga is a popular Adelaide Hills town, with sporting clubs, school, hotel and Churches it is just 10 minutes from Mount Barker's schools and shops, whilst the Freeway at Hahndorf offers access to the city by car in under 30 minutes. Express buses to the city operate from Hahndorf and Mount Barker, whilst various Private schools have their own bus services to the Hills towns.
The family home is solid brick and tiled roof, being built around the mid to late 1960's. The home and rooms within are a good size, with 4 bedrooms (master with built in cupboards) .It has a generous lounge with both a combustion heater and wall r/c air conditioner. The large kitchen has a walk in pantry and 2 dining areas, a day to day within the kitchen and semi-formal eating areas adjacent, overlooking the in ground pool complex. The bathroom has both shower and separate bath, there is a separate toilet, and off the laundry/boot room there is a second shower. A large rear veranda and solar panels for electricity production completes the home.
Imagine on a warm summers day, or the end of a day's work enjoying a swim in your private pool with the family. There are 2 in ground pools, a deeper one for the bigger people and a separate in ground wading pool for little people to enjoy.
The huge shed has a truck loading bay and is big enough for a workshop and parking of abundant vehicles/farm equipment. The shed also has 3 phase power.
A bonus is the original 5 roomed cottage, possibly built in the late 1800's, it is in need of major renovation but opens up many options for the extended family and possibly even Bed and Breakfast (subject to consents)
