About this listing
If Frank Lloyd Wright were alive today, he'd feel right at home in this ultra-cool family home sprawled across one of those botanic landscapes the Hills do so well. Built of local stone, it presides over some 3.4 acres of exclusive topography on the very edge of the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens and mere moments to the freeway and Stirling's beating heart.

Impressive stone gateposts signal arrival; your cue to drop down a gear and follow the oak-lined driveway skywards. Level parking waits atop, along with thrilling occasion to weave some extra magic into this home's considerable bounty of riches. Lovely modernist lines, a beautiful admission of light and brilliant views towards Echunga.  But it's the space, the sheer freedom of it, you'll love the most!

The floor plan follows the tried and tested formula of living at one end and sleeping at the other; two wings that bookend a splendid covered terrace where kookaburras and the views come tumbling in, and entertaining family and friends would seem the natural thing to do.

Open-plan drift manifests itself magnanimously in formal and family areas, lit by picture windows, Tasmanian Oak floors and wood-burning fireplaces and stoves. The updated kitchen boasts open-plan living a walk-in pantry and is beaming with natural light.

Five bedrooms, or four and a study, include master with ensuite and walk-in robe. The layout's sound; just add the luxury! A chic refurb would also transform the main bathroom, (but find a new home for the washing machine first.)

Back outside, a wood-fired pizza oven adds party potential to the deep veranda at the rear, where stone steps lead up to level land that could yet be destined for a pool STCC.

Gather in the gazebo, stroll the camellia walk and surrender to an altogether cooler climate as the plains sizzle at the height of summer. Designed by someone who knew their stuff, the gardens are a joy, rambling in seasonal splendour, stone walling and the anticipation of nothing more than an annual trim.

Leaving you free to tee off at nearby Stirling Golf Club, explore Mt Lofty's walking trails and quench your thirst for hills life with a boutique brew at the newly revamped Crafers Hotel.

Sure, you could do a touch of remodelling and updating here and there, but these beautiful bones are wonderful and stylish as is. And so, a new chapter begins...
