‘WILLY CLARKE’ IS LOOKING FOR A NEW LODGER!
With great sadness and after much deliberation, the owners of this much-loved circa 1850’s‘Willy Clark Cottage’ have to say goodbye to the romantic quaintness of yesteryear where they have lovingly and respectfully restored this character-laden cottage into a rich and rewarding haven that only a property steeped in settlement history can provide.
As you will see from the gorgeous photos, traditional red bricks, rich dark timbers and timeless Willunga slate ensure the feel is warm and comforting – just like the good old days. Stainless steel, marble, and modern conveniences combine nicely to introduce a modern-day blend.
This property, as one would expect given its originality, has some unique additional features. One of these is the separate self-contained 1 x bedroom studio set amongst the beautifully manicured cottages gardens and tall trees that envelope this entire 1-acre (approx.) property. Containing a bedroom, kitchen, living room, study & bathroom, this stand-alone area is a perfect place for additional accommodation, a workplace, or inspirational space to stimulate your creativity with seclusion providing you with many options of use including Airbnb.
No doubt Willy Clarke was inspired by the beautiful natural setting of this location with Sellick’s beach just 2 minutes’ drive away and the view of the rolling hills at the fore that are now dovetailed with the vineyards at the edge of famous McLaren Vale wine region straight out your front door. Old Willy would also enjoy the company of the locals up the hill at the now-famous Victory Hotel, an easy stroll home after staring out over the stunning view of the Gulf of St. Vincent from the front bar. Or simply have a ‘cold one’ under the back veranda, now an all-weather outdoor entertainment area.
What he may not have envisaged was the array of abundant attractions and activities that the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula now has on offer. World-class local produce sold at a variety of local markets, funky cafes, fresh seafood outlets, nearby shopping centres, art galleries and boutique brewery’s, nature reserves and boardwalks – all bookended by the beautiful sea and vines. He would have loved them all!
If the city does beckon, it is less than 1 hour to central Adelaide, the airport and even less to the Southern Expressway to get you there. Your life and style combination of country charm and city chic will be widely envied by friends and family.
Fully fenced for children and pet safety and freedom to roam, this prized property also provides exceptional shedding for additional vehicle storage, auto roller door garaging and 3 bay workshop facilities. Lock up and leave or stay in and relax – the choice is yours.
Whatever your decision, irreplaceable properties such as this only come along once in a lifetime. Are you going to make it in your lifetime like Willy Clarke did or let the moment pass relegating it to ‘the one that got away?’ Make your call today.
