Rare Country Lifestyle Opportunity


Immaculate family home & garden set amongst vineyards and beautiful scattered red gums

Situated just 5 minutes from Penola in the South East of South Australia, this is a rare country lifestyle opportunity not to be missed.

LOT 1 - 53.22 hectares

The Home

As you drive down the wide tree lined driveway and arrive at the roundabout surrounded by beautiful Iceberg roses, you immediately feel a sense of elegance. Built in 1995, the brick veneer home is immaculately maintained and expansive, spanning across 306 square metres.

Walk through the front doors and you’ll find a small, practical office on one side, and a large formal dining area with bay window capturing the northern light on the other. You’ll then enter the open plan kitchen and casual dining area which is the true heart of the home. The kitchen offers ample bench space, a walk-in pantry, dishwasher and electric wall oven. This area opens to a cosy lounge area with gas log fire and internal brick feature walls. The area is designed around the enormous 10m x 10m outdoor pergola area perfect for entertaining all year round.

A passage, with linen storage leads to all four bedrooms. The spacious main bedroom once again offers a gorgeous bay window, complete with WIR and ensuite. The other three bedrooms are all a good size and include BIRs and one with small study nook. The main bathroom offers a shower and large spa bath surrounded by white timber shutters which look out to the lush garden. The laundry offers plenty of bench space and storage and has convenient access to the pergola area. 

Added as a later extension a huge family retreat can be found to the eastern end of the home. Large enough for pool table, couches and other activities this is the ultimate children’s hideaway zone. It features white timber double doors on either side, wood fire place and reverse cycle A/C. Another toilet and hand washing area extends from this space, as well as the oversized single car garage.

The home boasts ducted heating and cooling throughout, and decorative feature tiles, ceiling roses and high-quality window furnishings.

Ongoing maintenance has been of utmost importance to the owners and as such the home has painted internally and externally under eaves and facia 2 years ago, new carpet was installed 3 years ago and two new hot water services have also recently been installed.

The Garden

The Sciematley garden can only be described as spectacular! Considered one of the finest gardens in the region it spans across 4 acres and has hosted weddings, open days and been the envy of all garden enthusiasts. Varieties include Blossomtime, Mr Lincoln and Gertrude Jeckyll roses, mature Magnolia, Silver Birch and Forest Pansy trees and many different types of beautiful plants.

The garden has been designed to produce colour all year round and is complemented by the vast and immaculate lawn area, watered by pop up sprinklers.

Other key features include a tennis court metres from the home, scenic lily pond with arch bridge, high yielding fruit orchard, veggie garden and chook yard.
