GLENLEIGH HOMESTEAD – Circa 1895 - Stunning Rural Lifestyle
This is a magnificent property of 10.93 HA (approx 27 acres) that features a beautiful stone character homestead positioned in a commanding location within the property. It is set well off the main road offering you privacy, seclusion, and glorious rural views.
The home is nestled amongst a beautiful array of mature English garden trees and massive large complimenting gums creating a most delightful setting in which to live. The original homestead was constructed of local Ironstone in 1895 by the “Mannings Family” which together with a very sympathetic red brick addition to the home in 1995, creates a home of immense character and charm yet incorporating all the comforts demanded by the modern family.
The home comprises of traditional central passage, 3 spacious bedrooms, formal lounge, large eat-in country kitchen with “Rayburn” wood stove and heater, family room and a conventional bathroom. Separate toilet and fitted laundry / utility room which completes the homes most functional floor plan. Features of this beautiful home include lofty 3 metre Baltic pine ceilings throughout, complimented by polished pine and hardwood flooring. Several open fire places with timber mantles and excellent built-in storage throughout. A comfortable environment is managed in summer and winter with the ducted reverse cycle air-conditioning system. The kitchen includes adishwasher and excellent sized pantry / larder. The return verandah around the home provides additional summer living areas to relax and enjoy the view!
The property is gently undulating in nature, has 2 large dams (1 of which is spring fed) and is fenced into approximately 6 main paddocks. The property is attractively established to various treed wind breaks and dotted with large shade and shelter trees. A spring fed creek meanders through the property creating a small wetland area and creating an attractive variation of landscape.
Other improvements of the land include an exceptional 18m x 9m agricultural shed with concrete floor, power and lighting. Together with a fully lined and air conditioned office, complete with separate toilet and bathroom facilities. A work shop and storage bay make this a very handy shed. The open fronted hay shed measures approximately 12m x 6m.
The old stone outbuilding which was originally suggested to be a creamery is now used as store rooms together with a two car carport. There are steel stock yards complete with cattle crush and loading ramp, a woodshed plus dog yard.
There is also an orchard with a variety of fruit trees including apple, quince, pear, cherry, plum, peach and nectarine as well as a vegetable patch. There is also no lack of water at “Glenleigh” with an equipped bore, pumping to a massive 69,000 litre steel header tank providing an exceptional amount of water for stock and domestic purposes, together within excess of 110,000 litres of rainwater storage for use within the home.
This rural retreat is only a short drive to the local services, shopping, schools, quality cafes and restaurants of the towns of Willunga, Mount Compass, Meadows and McLaren Vale. The Adelaide CBD is only around a comfortable hour away by road.
“Glenleigh” is most certainly a must see, so if you happen to miss the next open, please call for an inspection appointment that suits.
