Set on picturesque grounds of almost 9000sqm, this expansive five-bedroom Adelaide Hills property is testament to the determination of Antonia and John Smith in their quest to create a dream home; their masterpiece.
Antonia and John are downsizing from the home — a project completed over several years with a focus on family living, entertaining and making the most of the location.
“It’s been a lot of hard work but I’ve loved living here,” says Antonia who, in her 60s, took an impressive hands-on approach to the build despite having battled cancer twice in the past 20 years.
“It’s a beautiful piece of land. I built the home with a family in mind. Kids would enjoy the space and the life out here. There are ducks in the dam, rabbits, koalas, a kangaroo occasionally goes hopping through the property; it’s just a lovely place to live,” she says.
“We didn’t scrimp on anything, it’s a very solid home. It’s a special and unique piece of land in a secluded location.”
