“Caughley”- Enchanting two-storey residence of English style gardens …
We are excited to be able to bring to market such a special property. Built in 1936 the classic two storey residence has many character features, including the round timber windows which were reclaimed from the original owners’ family home in Caughley, Scotland. As the property is set over two titles, there are further opportunities, providing an ideal building space for a supplementary dwelling (stcc).
This property is one for those looking for privacy, space & tranquillity & this unique home takes full advantage of its location, with large picture windows that provide magnificent vistas of treetop views & the quiet valley below.
Once inside, the interiors are generous & welcoming, with expansive window glazing offering light-filled spaces & positioned to provide wonderful garden views throughout. The hub of the home is an open plan living area incorporating the kitchen with stainless steel appliances, dining & lounge room with feature stone fireplace & French doors to the outdoor entertaining area & sundrenched patio. Substantial living is consistent throughout the home with three spacious bedrooms on this level & an attractive bathroom with feature leadlight window.
There is a second living area on the lower level with provisions to utilise this separate wing for extended families or it would be the ideal teenagers’ retreat. This large area is currently utilised as a lounge with Jotul fireplace & decorative mantel, dining room, bedroom & a study. A bathroom, well equipped European style laundry & cellar complete this level.
Located on English style terraced gardens filled with a myriad of mature botanical treasures featuring a beautiful 90 year old sequoia tree (Californian Redwood), golden & claret ash, elms, rhododendrons, camelias, azaleas & abundant bulbs. Extensive stone walling & meandering paths add delightful character to this garden which also has valuable dual access to Summit Road. A good quality bore & rainwater storage assist with the lush gardens, with enough space to accommodate your family & friends in this most scenic part of the world.
A short drive into Crafers & Stirling for cafes, restaurants, shopping & all good local amenities, close to Mount Lofty’s natural attractions including bushwalks & wildlife reserve & only a 30 minute drive to the CBD. Move in & enjoy the magic & serenity of the Adelaide Hills in Spring & watch the sun rise over the treetops, overlooking your own private garden.
