15 productive acres, 18 megs water licence, solid 4 bed homestead, alternative home sites with great views.
Developed as one holding within the large domain of the Adelaide Hills’ best-known apple growing dynasty, this tightly held property can now play a role in your future. At 6.2 hectares (15.3 acres), it’s perfect for small-scale specialty growing of grapes or produce, development as your own country retreat or equestrian property or all of the above!
The homestead is a substantial stone villa of four large bedrooms, 11′ ceilings and generous living areas. With redecoration and removal of the external render to expose the original stone facade it could serve as a gracious home, cellar door or hospitality destination (subject to appropriate consents, of course). Outbuildings include three 2-bay garages (all with concrete floors and power, one with three-phase). a single brick roll-a-door garage and a greenhouse. Rainwater is held in a large concrete tank.
But on the highest and central part of the gently sloping property (490m elevation) are several potential new-home sites that take advantage of far-reaching views to north and south over the Onkaparinga Valley. Here too are a large pad for shedding (footings in place) and flat sites for a horse arena to make your ideal lifestyle property, just over 30 minutes to the CBD.
‘Ulverston’ has had a very productive history in apple growing. Extensive plantings over 2.5 hectares embrace several key varieties: Fuji, Pink Lady, Royal Gala, Granny Smith and Kalias. Another 0.8 hectares of unplanted land adds scope for further planting if desired, with all orchard areas served by irrigation main lines.
Property purchase includes an 18.144 megalitre underground water licence. Water infrastructure is all in place, with a newly installed electric pump on the bore, which feeds a 2 gigalitre capacity turkey nest dam at the top of the property. A diesel pump ensures pressurised supply from the dam.
The topography of this parcel of land adds much to its appeal, as do the mature stands of stringybarks, cedars, cypresses and pines that punctuate the property, providing practical benefits as windbreaks as well as the delights of a woodland setting. The house garden has its own delights, with many roses, salvias, camellias and hydrangeas.
