Step inside Miller’s House and fall in love with a bygone era. Reminiscent of halcyon days, a romanticised life, it represents all that is idyllic about living in the Adelaide Hills. Wide roads, autumn leaves and century old Oaks will ease you back in time whilst you enjoy the comforts of modern living. A superb representation of the Classic Freestone Tudor; Miller’s House has been loved and is perfectly blended with modernized extensions plus a flat acre of mesmerizing gardens.
Set well back from the road, behind established hedging and century old Oaks, the attraction and sense of “home” is instant. Follow the bitumen driveway into view of the Freestone Tudor facade to all important undercover entry from carport to home. Stunning period features have been retained to create an elegant and stylish living environment. Spacious and flexible the floor plan boasts a graceful formal living room framed by a stunning bay window overlooking the front gardens. Each of the three bedrooms deliver on size and all are carpeted with an abundance of built-in storage. Recently renovated the main bathroom is complete with bath, separate shower and underfloor heating while the second bathroom is situated at the rear of the home, ideal for guest use. Updated in a traditional country style the kitchen and meals are significant in size and features a standalone Smeg oven and period butler’s servery connecting the formal dining room for ease of fine entertaining. Doubling as a study, the adjacent butler’s pantry is bathed in natural light. The large family room with underfloor heating competes with the kitchen as heart of the home as French doors overlook gardens and the significant all-weather outdoor entertaining area.
An all-encompassing “feel good” factor creates a sense of anticipation as you make it through all facets of the property. Flanked by farmland and racing stables landscaped meandering paths walk through the extent of the rear garden. Soon to be a sea of bulbs, the canvas is constantly evolving. Extensive shedding will suit those with a passion requiring extra space. With a rear paddock for small animals, a chicken coop, vegetable garden beds, cubby house, woodshed, the grand design of the acre has been well thought out and utilised.
