A touch of Tuscan paradise in the Clare Valley …
Elders Clare Valley are proud to offer this magnificent stone homestead of Historic Significance (Heritage Listed) C1853 to the market. Set on 13.1 Ha with 9 Ha surrounding vineyard. Arguably one of the Clare Valley’s most admired and photographed properties and the focal point of Watervale as you enter the township from Adelaide. The former “Rosenberg” cellar door and winery only closed its doors when the current owners purchased in 1997. This is a once in a lifetime to purchase the complete Clare Valley package.
The homestead was built in 1853 as a winery and cottage and has had a recent addition of a beautiful wing that includes a further two bedrooms both with built in robes, new main bathroom suite with floor to ceiling marble tiles, free-standing spa bath and marble vanity; plus, a breezeway between the original homestead and the addition.
The original homestead features a country style kitchen with double oven & 8 burner gas cooktop, dishwasher, fabulous cupboard space and island, the dining area adjoins with fabulous views over the valley. The formal living is spacious with ornate ceilings and full of character, this leads to the master suite that has its own sitting room/library and en-suite bathroom; marble tiles, shower and vanity. French doors open to the wide cooling verandah bringing the outside in and offering magnificent views over the valley.
Take the winding staircase down to the ground floor where you will find a family living area, plus a double game’s room/cellar. This area was the cellar door but also used for Barrel storage, with original flagstone slate floors, exposed stone walls and lovely barn doors. There is the original tank cellar plus winemaking laboratory. This area could be converted back to Cellar Door or business pursuits if the new owner wishes.
The grounds are all Tuscan influenced with saltwater in ground swimming pool, sandstone block fencing and large flag pavers. Lawns, roses and shrubs, entertaining area with built in BBQ, plus citrus orchard are all gorgeous features and perfect for enjoying one of Clare Valley’s favourites.
