16 acres, elevated, secluded, spectacular views

Properties with these views tend to be very tightly held, this one is for sale for the first time in nearly 50 years

Set about as high as you can above the McLaren Vale wine region, enjoying spectacular views towards the Ranges over the scenic countryside, vineyards, townships and distant sea glimpses. Comfortable 3 bedroom 2 bathroom home, dual living areas, several sheds including large workshop with 3 phase power, 3.5 acre Shiraz and Riesling vineyard, native scrub and pine forest.

The vendors have loved living here, but the time has come to downsize. The home was built in 1975 with brick veneer construction, and is in very good, mostly original condition. When you sit down and admire the views here, they take your breath away, so it’s been hard to prepare the property for “show home”, hence the sales campaign is commencing with a discreet VIP preview release only.

There’s still a little clutter, hence no internal photos, but upon inspection you’ll see you can move straight in and enjoy country life, or choose to update in your own personal style

What we love about the property:

• Views from every window
• High ceilings
• Parquetry flooring
• Front door leads into an entrance passageway with coffered ceiling and chandelier
• Open plan living/ dine/ country style oak kitchen with wall oven, Miele induction cooktop Miele dishwasher, step in pantry cupboard and generous fridge space. Enjoy an after dinner digestif by the cosy slow combustion heater on chilly nights, or switch on the split system air conditioner on warmer days
• Kitchen sink is at the window which enjoys a postcard view
• Second living room also with fabulous views and open fire set in brick chimney breast
• Third living room on the West which is fully tiled, ideal games room or home theatre, and has glass sliding doors at either end of the room
• Large main bedroom with east facing window for natural alarm clock, plus north facing sliding door to let in the summer breeze, or northern winter sunshine. Large fully fitted walk in wardrobe and tidy ensuite with shower over bath, corner vanity and toilet
• East side of the home is a generous sized bedroom with east and south facing windows for plenty of light, ideal if you’re ready to write a book or you choose to use this as your work from home office
• Bedroom 3 is large with a built-in wardrobe
• Tidy family bathroom with shower, bath, vanity and separate toilet
• Huge laundry with stainless steel trough, plus bonus porcelain hand basin
• Parquetry flooring to both living rooms, hallway and three bedrooms, tiling to rest
• Ceiling fans throughout
• Huge storage cupboard in the hallway

• Enchanting entrance driveway leads into the property from Blewitt Springs Road past the ‘park like’ botanical garden. Majestic trees, lawned areas, make sure you bring your picnic blanket
• 3.5 acre (approx) Shiraz and Riesling (contracted) vineyard
• Rose lined driveway leads gently uphill to the elevated home site with high clearance double carport by the home
• Skillion roof polycarbonate roofed verandah with concrete floor, with mesmerizing views
• Massive 22m x 7.5m (approx) high clearance workshop with concrete floor and 3 phase power
• Garden shed, additional sundry sheds
• Disused bore
• Native and pine forest. This forest is so enchanted, it has been reported elves have been sighted among the trees, more frequently after returning from a local cellar door or mushroom picking season
• Stainless steel whirligigs in the roof for extra ventilation

• Mains power, 3 phase to home and shed, plus 16 solar panels
• Mains water and rainwater
• Traditional soakage septic system
• Electric hot water
• Split system a/c
• ADSL internet for streaming or working from home
• Watering system to front/rear garden
• Former veg gardens, fruit trees

Bonus inclusions:
• John Deere Tractor and slasher
• Sundry steel and farm equipment
• Industrial lathe and equipment in workshop
• King quad bike

The Vale Tap house is nearby, so is Beresford, and so are many other world class McLaren Vale wine region cellar doors, breweries, distilleries and restaurants. If you’re prepared to share the site with others, perhaps this could be the ideal pace for your venture (stcc). McLaren Flat and McLaren Vale Townships are nearby, and Adelaide CBD only 45km

For years real estate agents have been saying “million dollar views”. Well, we’ve had inflation over the years, now it’s 2 million dollar views, but this one comes with change in your pocket. The camera does not compete with your human eyes, do yourself a favour and come and inspect this property for yourself, you will be blown away by the views, you’re gonna love it.
