Guided by a meandering driveway lined by lush open fields, truly bespoke craftsmanship and architectural elegance have combined to create this one-of-a-kind Adelaide Hills residence. A once simple c.1915 cottage has been lovingly extended and transformed over the years, now boasting an impressive 553sqm of accommodation across two levels, with a wrap-around balcony deck that takes in the stunning scenery.
This highly versatile floorplan offers 16 main rooms, including various formal and casual living areas, 6-7 bedrooms and additional kitchen facilities. Entering on ground level, the large family room features exposed stone walls, French door access to an open side courtyard, and large format windows that fill the space with stunning natural light and expansive views. A conveniently adjoined bathroom features a resort-like open shower, vanity storage and toilet facilities.
The original cottage showcases well-maintained character features throughout, currently comprising an open living area with Jarrah flooring, a wood-fire heater, and a hallway arch that leads to two generous bedrooms, a potential study or sunroom perhaps and access to the alfresco area. There is also a mudroom/utilities room, a bathroom with a separate toilet, and a spacious original kitchen complete with a Westinghouse stainless-steel oven, Fisher & Paykel induction cooktop, and a walk-in pantry.
The main living wing was purposely designed to embrace year-round northern light, comprising a formal sitting room and dining area, designer JAG kitchen and adjacent casual meals area with a generous family living area. In warmer weather, you'll enjoy family dinners out on the balcony deck, with breathtaking views over rolling hills. There are two light-filled bedrooms located off the open family area, serviced by a centrally located bathroom and separate toilet facilities.
The designer JAG kitchen is fit for a chef, whether you're cooking for one, or for many, it will be an enjoyable task with quality stainless steel appliances, a gas cooktop, ample Caesarstone bench space and convenient storage at every turn. Two sets of double French doors open out to the alfresco entertainer's courtyard, where peace and serenity are found. The spacious undercover patio features a traditional, hand-built wood oven.
Heading downstairs to the lower level, the spacious primary bedroom overlooks the lush open fields with lovely natural light filtering in through the large, north-facing windows. The generous walk-in wardrobe/dressing room includes additional under-stair storage space. A peek around the corner reveals a luxurious ensuite, complete with a double sink and stone top vanity, a generous shower and an indulgent spa bath for those nights you need to relax and unwind. This home's surprises continue with a spacious wine room that includes generous adjoined cellar storage. The lower level is made complete by a light-filled sixth bedroom.
