Sweet Serenity Awaits at this Family Sanctuary in the Hills

Occupying a magnificent 3.6 hectares in the leafy, no-traffic middle ground between the picturesque townships of Mylor and Echunga, this breathtaking rural retreat comprises a stylishly renovated, light-filled 5-bedroom rendered lowset, a heated swimming pool, stables for the fillies, a series of sheds, and a productive orchard – offering you the chance to raise your family in a gloriously private natural setting – where each season brings a vibrant new colour palette and an amazing collection of flora and fauna.

In these stunning spacious surroundings, where sweet birdsong greets you in the morning and grazing kangaroos welcome you home as you leave the rat race in the rearview mirror and watch the evening light bask the property's trees in a sunset glow, endless blissful days will be enjoyed with friends and family – whatever the weather. Inside the residence itself, an incredible open plan tiled kitchen, living and dining zone – with soaring vaulted ceiling and a scenic, double-glazed glass outlook to the saltwater pool and adjacent grounds – is the perfect place to cosy up with the kids or entertain your social crew in the depths of winter. There's a family room next door with access to the pool that the kids can retreat to after meals, leaving you to finish off the night in front of the warmth of the living room's combustion fireplace or languish in peace with a glass of red or a good book in the formal
lounge off the main entry.

In summer, entertaining can move from the dining area inside – where there's room to fit a 10-person table – to the equally large and luxuriously tiled covered verandah right outside. Wherever you sit, the designer kitchen, with its walk-in pantry, reams of elegantly moulded white cabinetry, and black granite preparation & servings areas, housing wine storage and a new dishwasher, is well-equipped to cater to feasts intimate and lavish. The family room (or a grand work from home work space if you choose) and the adjacent main bedroom, has richly-hued, solid Jarrah floors complementing the tiled living areas and the quality floating floors in the formal front lounge and other 4 bedrooms. Not one, but two bedrooms have elegant ensuites, while a luxe main bathroom with a tempting freestanding bathtub and shower, and two privately housed powder rooms, service the other rooms and guests.

Living here, it would be easy to think you were on holiday permanently – yet this blissful location is only 10 minutes to Hahndorf and a little more to the shops and eateries at Aldgate Village and Stirling. A 5-minute drive will get you to a couple of local primary schools or for high schools it's less than 15 minutes to Heathfield or Mt Barker high schools. It's time to embrace the journey home and make this magical piece of the Hills' your own.
