Historic countryside escape: Timeless stone cottage on a sweeping 1.53 ha estate

Steeped in local Adelaide Hills' history and nestled on the whisper-quiet outskirts of Mount Barker, 427 Springs Road – a gorgeous, 1862 heritage-listed stone cottage and former Burnbank School House – captures a rare and remarkable 1.53-ha estate spilling with yesteryear charm, as well as sweeping gardens and serene natural grounds of unrivalled tranquillity.

With solid, local stone footings delivering utter contemporary comfort, this lovely 3-bedroom property complete with a beautiful, ensuite master and French doors opening to a decked terrace and flowering scenery beyond, invites a picturesque base for those in search of a slice of countryside heaven.

Enjoying a touch of modern open-plan entertaining helmed by a cracking combustion fireplace, sparkling and stone-topped chef's zone ready to inspire culinary delights, and central dining area; this effortless social hub flows under wonderfully lofty ceilings.

With a mezzanine floor adding welcome space to relax or unwind, spacious main bathroom centred around a cast-iron, clawfoot bath, and brilliant timber-decked alfresco overlooking lush greenery and native trees teeming with magical birdlife… there's a level of soul-enriching serenity here most can only dream of.

In addition to the character home, you'll also find a large 12m x 6m shed featuring another handy storage mezzanine and attached office or studio, while huge rainwater tanks, premium filtration system, and underground bore ensures the house and garden have abundant fresh water.

Long, meandering gravel paths, a passing creek, stunning flowering feature trees (from Crab Apple, Robinia, to Weeping Cherries), and a leisure stroll to the sprawling grassy knoll offer memory-making picnics and fun-filled get-togethers with friends. There's also stables, sheds, a massive chicken coop, along with an endless supply of wood to stoke your winter fires, and all the exciting possibilities that come with laying claim to such a prized parcel of land that'll see you try your green thumb and become a fresh produce hobbyist in no time.

Located moments from central Mount Barker for all of your modern amenities, iconic Adelaide Hills' villages and cellar doors at your fingertips, and a mere 25-minutes to the bottom of the Freeway where you'll find all your cosmopolitan needs – relocating to such resounding peacefulness might be the chance of a lifetime.
