Glenroy -Adelaide Hills Living at its Best

Glenroy is located in a serene and sheltered position offering spectacular views and a sense of privacy often sought but rarely discovered. Historically, this property was part of a 1000 acre land holding owned by the Smith family. They ran sheep and cattle. Over the years smaller parcels were divided up resulting in today's 9.086 ha (22 acres) offering.

Upon arrival the London Plane tree lined driveway meanders towards the house - a magnificent example of a home paying respect to its stunning Adelaide Hills setting. Its Architectural features have been designed to enable the owners to gain an enviable relationship with the adjoining native environment. Natural light cascades into every room and the views are simply breathtaking.

The truly unique architectural home is filled with light, texture and soft, subtle curves. As you enter, you are met with a wall of stacking glass doors to the North leading to the terrace, whilst an easterly aspect leads you to an elevated deck with outstanding distant views. The Indonesian hardwood floor was chosen not only for its natural beauty but also because it was sourced from sustainable foresting. Recently re-sanded and polished, it will continue to serve and delight for many years to come. The kitchen sits in the corner of the spacious family living room. The red gum bench tops blend well with the floor colours and a freestanding island has an attractive and functional solid timber work top. Euro appliances, a plumbed fridge recess, walk in pantry and terrace servery with stacking windows enhance the space.
Split system air conditioning, together with a Nectre slow combustion fire control the climate in this area. The windows on either side are also double glazed to assist with temperature control. This zone can be opened up for entertaining purposes. Screens can be closed if necessary enabling the cooling gully winds to flow through on those balmy summer evenings we all adore. An attractive Alpine Carousel slow combustion fire features in the sunken living room. The flames flow in a circular fashion creating a warm and inviting zone. Overlooking the tree lot established some 20 years ago, the ample windows enhance the peaceful space.

The floor plan has design elements working to create space for individuality whilst at the same time retaining a cohesive flow.
The master suite overlooks an ornamental dam to the east. Wake up to birdsong and spectacular sunrises. Bedroom 2 boasts a roomy walk in robe plus ensuite and is located on the mezzanine floor together with the study or 5th bedroom. Bedrooms 3 and 4 are on the main level with built in robes, garden views and access to the family bathroom and wet areas. A solar system services the home with Hot Water.

The well established gardens feature a combination of native and English deciduous trees and shrubs. The recently installed fire sprinkler system features copper piping with both roof mounted and ground based sprinklers which can also be utilised for watering the gardens. The bore (270ppm - 20.8.14 tested) feeds this state of the art system. The gardens are a pleasant mix of deciduous English trees and native varieties combining to create a haven around the home. A glory vine has been cleverly trained to creep along purpose built trellises. The terrace has a Mediterranean feel during the warmer months as the vines create a natural canopy. They have also been positioned over windows allowing dappled sunlight to filter through into the interior of the home.

The extensive shedding will suit a multitude of needs. A car enthusiast will be able to store a large number of vehicles. The equestrian lovers may envisage an indoor arena and or stable complex. There is ample under cover area for floats, boats or vans. The shedding was previously used for a thriving native flower growing business and houses a cold room together with 2 workrooms. The adjoining shearing shed would make the perfect teenagers retreat. A 7
Bay implement/hay shed is located in the lower paddock. You will also notice an array of attractive native flowers on the land. The current owners have chosen to leave these flowers in situ. An arrangement has been made with the neighbours with regard to the flowers and this can be continued or renegotiated upon sale. Alternatively, they could easily be removed and the paddocks used for grazing purposes.

Glenroy boasts an abundant, high quality water supply. A 90,000 litre tank is plumbed directly into the house and sheds while separate tanks are dedicated to the sprinkler system. The ornamental dam is topped up with bore water. The associated Water license will be transferred at settlement. A small parcel of land (approx. 8 acres) on the Tanahmerah road boundary is currently leased from the Adelaide Hills Council

In essence, this soulful property offers a lifestyle opportunity for those seeking a small manageable acreage within close proximity to the CBD (25 mins). I look forward to showing you through. Perhaps it's time to make the spectacular Adelaide Hills part of your own back yard!
