A stylish off-grid paradise on 4.04 Ha, with extensive gardens and spellbinding outlooks across Montacute Valley.
A pristine natural paradise that makes living off-grid so stylish, so now... If you"ve ever dreamt of going bush without compromising on your creature comforts and the amenities of town, this one"s for you!
Because here, you are a mere 10-minute drive to Magill shops and cafes and 25 to the city; here, you feel like you"ve stepped into an enchanted utopia where the delicate spider orchid flowers prolifically, the birdlife is just brilliant and kangaroos, koalas and kids are free to roam.
The much loved (and well-trodden) Morialta Conservation Park is quite literally on the doorstep of this unspoilt slice of Terra Australis, home to a gorgeous piece of ecomodernism that sits beautifully in its environment, sheltered by an insulating earth roof.
Warm in winter, cool in summer and double-glazed for maximum energy efficiency, relax and enjoy those magical views (and the natural beauty of your environment) from the comfort and serenity of your stylish, contemporary, light-filled home, untouched by power outages or ever having to pay an electricity bill again!
Descending from the visitors parking bay on the crest of the hill, stone steps lead through a bright and beautiful rock garden (home to a pair of rare Cunningham"s skinks), to a breezeway that is quick to introduce you to the views while cleverly separating living and sleep zones.
The three double bedrooms are roomy, the bathrooms, fresh and there"s a brilliantly appointed home office, but it"s that view outside stretching beyond the birdcall to the forest slopes, orchards and vineyards beyond, that is the game changer.
Across the way, the wonderful living spaces with their thrilling, lofty ceilings, polished timber floors, warming central fireplace and large country-house kitchen with gas cooktop, walk-in pantry and handy laundry, provide space for the largest of family gatherings and complete freedom when entertaining.
Bright, spacious and airy inside, there is also plenty of opportunity to step outdoors to enjoy a glass of wine on a warm summer evening, a barbecue on the wisteria-wreathed terrace, the various sitting spots dotted throughout the magical gardens and the fishponds that soothe and cool. And when you find yourself thinking, this is just like being on holiday, you"ll know that you have truly fallen under the spell of this beautiful and unique home with the power to change the way you feel.
