In a spectacular location at the foothills of the Barossa Ranges, this Return Veranda Villa has sweeping views not only to the South and the North of the Barossa Valley but all the way through to St Vincent Gulf.
Set amongst renowned wineries and its close proximity to Jacobs Creek, Jacobs Creek Visitor's Centre, Novotel Barossa Valley Resort and Tanunda Links Golf Course provides a lifestyle opportunity of 4.36 Ha to enjoy or to create a unique commercial experience.
The home is filled with many original features and modified with a small extension, the original part of the home has been kept mostly intact. On entry to the home you are met with a grand central hallway that captures sunsetting dappled light through leadlight windows, a relaxing spectacle as your days unwind.
The rooms are large with high ceilings and two have been kept with the original fireplaces, the lounge is updated with a modern marble front surprisingly installed in the 70’s that captures today’s modern décor.
A large country style kitchen looks out over the northern views of the Barossa has direct access to the cellar and is warmed by the popular ‘Nectre’ combustion heater where you can leave your winter broth to simmer.
Two large bedrooms at the front of the home have picture views to the south and where the open fires can be enjoyed. Two split-system air-conditioners help cool the home through summers hot spells.
The extension includes the utility areas of a large laundry with excellent storage and a bathroom with separate shower and corner spa. Just through the back door is a high roofed verandah, taking in the views beyond and a short walk to the sheds and carport.
The grounds improvements include a 60’ x 40’ 14’ shed with a 6” reinforced concrete floor. It is wired, and lighting installed, ready for the power to be connected. Another 8m x 6m shed sits adjacently.
An original shed which captures the rustic charm of yesteryears sits in a prime position to run a business venture, be it for accommodation, dining, cellar door… the uses are only limited by your imagination and councils zoning restrictions. The area is ideal to extend the shed with decking, capturing the uninterrupted views and activities of the Barossa. A large dam across the way has been aligned within the boundaries of this property, surrounded by large gums and a back drop of rolling hills.
As you wonder around the property some of its history shows itself. There is an old well and down beside the peppercorn tree on the edge of the creek lays the original underground cellar. This was used for curing meats and producing pottery. The area is well known for its heavy clay over loam soil which was perfect for this pursuit. The original mud brick cottage is now gone and sat where the large shed stands today.
Remaining on the property is 2.5 acres of Shiraz and .75 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon with an area of approximately 9,000 sqm at the front of the home and behind the creek approximately 4400 sqm suitable for further plantings (subject to council consents).
The family are very proud of their rare sixth generation grape grower status, who only surrendered their production on the illness of their father. Schild Estates have managed the vineyard since utilising the grapes in their premium labelled wines and have been doing so since 2014.
It is with regret that the owners relinquish this property to the experienced hands of selling agent David Braunack who is honoured to present their stunning property for the first time in nearly fifty years for sale by Expressions of Interest, an opportunity often not seen in this area.
