Say goodbye to the grind in an everyday escape worthy of serene Upper Sturt
Adelaide’s gridlock and grind sits just 15 minutes away, yet you could be anywhere in the world – such is the sense of escape in a 3-bedroom home that draws its inspiration from the log cabins of the Scandinavian countryside.
But this isn’t Sweden. This is some 2250sqm of gum-studded Upper Sturt and the Hills sanctuary a young family or downsizing double will savour, just five minutes from Stirling.
Built in the late 1970s, this woody welcome to the quiet life – without the isolation – gets better with age thanks to its sustainable pieces and the current owner’s preparedness to improve them.
Typical of its era and place, you’ll find the likes of high-pitched ceilings of pine, stain glass windows, a garden view at every turn, and a return verandah so you can enjoy your surroundings in the fresh air – and from every possible perspective.
The best perspective is served on the 50sqm verandah – your entertainer’s ally in the warmer months.
As the usual green of your surrounds start to turn to that beautiful autumn red, the best seat in the house is by the slow combustion fireplace and stone feature wall – the subtle divide between lounge and dining.
Despite the divide, it all feels so inclusive and free flowing on a journey that reveals two larger main bedrooms, study/third bedroom, and a solid timber kitchen with granite tops, breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances.
Rare in these parts, lawned terraces are eager to host a game of cricket or garden picnic amongst the established natives, stone walls, magical nooks and crannies, fire pit, double carport and a park for your caravan.
Not that you’ll need the caravan. You’ve already escaped.
