Bring your love-of-the-land plans to this pick of the crop; an endearing cottage in need of some inspiration on 16 acres of undulating beauty, opposite Lenswood Primary School and approximately 30km to the city.
Plant your roots and reconnect with the romance; undulating land bursting with eye-popping appeal, some 7 acres of Pink Lady, Fuji and Golden Delicious apple orchards and towering mature trees dotted amongst this postcard offering.
It typifies the quintessential Australian dream; rain water tank nuzzling up against a family farmhouse with spacious rooms, high ceilings, and traditional long verandah to rock away the hours...
Except there's a little work to do first. Whether it be a renovation project or a complete modern intervention to the character C.1910 cottage, then gear up for your pot of gold.
Beyond the winding driveway and rolling hills lies a home comprising of three bedrooms, one bathroom, a quaint kitchen/meals area, plus a light-filled living room.
Brace yourself, it's basic. But, there's a touch of vintage worth salvaging within its stone, quoined walls - 3.2m ceilings, sash windows, original kitchen stove cavity, and decorative fireplace in the master bedroom.
And for the enquiring entrepreneur or hobby farmer, there's shedding large enough for machinery and vehicles, an extensive carport, bore with valuable 30 Megalitre water allocation/licence (with a great yield and excellent water quality based on government records) and a concrete header tank in the middle of the orchard capable of pumping directly from bore to sprinklers.
So, step back and assess your options in the heart of the historic Adelaide Hills, as Lenswood clicks over its centenary of existence (C.1917).
As tourists swarm all year round quaffing local wines from world-class vineyards, indulging in fresh produce and boutique bed and breakfast accommodation, it all points to you reaping some semi-rural rewards.
