“Milfordbrae” a century of heart, stone & soul a stroll to Stirling Village
Mount Lofty stone, repurposed Jarrah from the old Mylor bridge, some 1696sqm of gardens poised for self-sustainability, and solar-power benefits complete a rare and rewarding mix of a c1928 bungalow steeped in charm.
And with it combines the best of city and country – its current family can attest having lived here for 32 years – where birdlife, wildlife, foliage and lifestyle meet with a wander to Stirling’s cafes and shops, prized school zoning to Heathfield High and Stirling East Primary, and a 20-minute freeway sprint to the city.
Family forever-ness starts like this.
Welcome and ambience follows thanks to lofty ceilings, timber floors and feature stone fireplaces in a layout delivering some three living rooms, three spacious bedrooms, two upgraded bathrooms, plus a snug/study with a slow combustion fire lifting its bedroom flex to four.
A 1990s architectural addition, dominated by more feature stone, pays its way with private access, its own bathroom and Airbnb income – reviewing guests loving its gateway to the greater Adelaide Hills…
For live-ins or teens not intending to fly the nest, it also claims an adjoining family room for private respite.
Comfortable, carpeted accommodation sees the master bedroom with window seat inhaling garden outlooks, bedroom three has an exposed brick chimney, and the study, a fireside centrepiece beneath slatted timber ceilings.
Meanwhile, looking forward to shifting gears is the open plan living, kitchen and dining offering scope to improve; while functioning perfectly as is, it lets indoor/outdoor traffic slip through the sliding glass to a sunny deck and private courtyard.
Terraced gardens, multiple outbuildings for tools or wood storage and a double garage/workshop settle amongst the serenity.
For family breathing space, supplementary income or to up-style the beauty already here; in Stirling, it’s hard to go wrong…
