Escape to the hills in style in Chapel Hill where “Glendearah” awaits, just a short drive to the Echunga main street or an easy 25 minute drive to the tollgate.
Built to harmonise with its surroundings, the home rests on a magnificent parcel of 30.78 pristine acres, neighbouring the expanses of quality holdings with the Echunga Golf Club just up the road. Exceedingly private, the land is flat to gently undulating with treed and cleared sections with electric strand wire fencing throughout. A true park-like setting full of native and English trees; liquidambars, cottonwoods, oaks, willows, ash, eucalyptus and wattle trees to name a few…
The country log home is cosy, textural and comforting. With high 3m ceilings, shiplap walls in the family room complete a wonderfully large open raised brick fireplace that just beckons you to it with the picture book country views that roll on from one window to the next…
The formal lounge, complete with an open fireplace and central chandelier, sets the stage for elegant gatherings. A formal dining room provides ample space for hosting memorable dinners, along with the versatile kitchen that is well appointed to feed them!
Certainly, the master bedroom at “Glendearah” is a luxurious haven within the property. It features a spacious walk-in robe and an ensuite bathroom which is a true retreat, offering a sense of indulgence and relaxation. The standout feature of the ensuite is the enormous spa bath, where you can unwind and soak away the stresses of the day. This wing is complemented by an adjoining office that provides panoramic views of the lush countryside, and french doors that open onto a private rose garden.
The land has been cropped and utilised for horses over the years with paddocks and holding yards with stock troughs, and a large arena/working paddock. Excellent shedding is also provided, while water is provided by large 2 x 30,000 gallon tanks. With an abundant source of firewood on the property, residents can enjoy the comfort and charm of crackling fires all winter long.
Additional unique features of the property include a dedicated tennis pavilion, offering a space for lounging and enjoying refreshments while overlooking the tennis court. While the study/library can easily double as an extra bedroom like it has in the past.
Furthermore, “Glendearah” is part of Chapman’s Gully, an area historically significant for its gold discovery in 1852 by William Chapman. The gold rush that followed saw over 100 licenses issued in the first week, resulting in the discovery of several tonnes of alluvial gold.
You’ll love your new routine. Imagine waking each morning to the sounds of the birdlife, sipping coffee in bed and watching day break in one of the most idyllic settings in the Adelaide Hills. Enjoy a morning walk or ride, maybe a hit of tennis or even stroll to collect your own produce from the veggie patch, all whilst soaking up the tranquility in this very special part of the world.
