2a Shanks Road Aldgate, SA 5154
Out of this world; a wing-spreading home with mid-century inspiration in a fairytale setting.
Painstaking built one mud brick at a time to salute mid-century architecture in a way we haven't seen before, the very home that draws inspiration from all things earthy stands elevated over a botanical setting that is nothing short of otherworldly.
The moment you cross the bridge of the very creek that runs exclusively through this 1.5-acre plot is the moment your troubles seem to float away - replaced by thriving wildlife, weeping trees, secret garden nooks and open spaces that have hosted a wedding with memorable aplomb.
It's simply the perfect setting for this solar-powered four bedroom home that spreads its light-filled wings far and wide to create the perfect viewing platform to the natural magic that unfolds - and changes colour by the season.
From the textured brick walls and terracotta coloured tiled floors to the rich timbers that frame the countless expansive windows and soaring raked ceilings; that earthy beauty lives though the home's varying hues and textures.
Multiple living zones converge at the home's heart, where a granite-topped kitchen makes food the center of every occasion, before every family member finds retreat in their respective wings; one an expansive master bedroom with a walk-in robe and ensuite.
Step out to the freshly stained deck that hovers over that creek and don't be surprised if ducklings, frogs, the resident tortoise, kangaroos or an inquisitive koala emerge below a home with under-house storage/cellar.
With ducted r/c, a bill-busting 11KW solar system, lightning-fast internet, bore and an extensive automatic watering system that taps into a satellite to read the weather, a home that feels disconnected from the world you know is far, far from it. Paradise. Found.
