Once upon a time, an enchanted lifestyle became a blissful reality

Here it is – the dream house that will change everything you thought you knew about log cabins in the woods. Created especially for a lifestyle immersed in nature, this home on a bushland sanctuary of almost 2,000 square metres is proof that rustic charm and modern comforts can indeed go hand in hand.

The one-owner home comes with a proven track record through four decades of happy family life. Offering the flexibility for up to four bedrooms, and the capacity for kids to have camping adventures in their own back yard, the home is perfectly at one with its lush surroundings, spread over two levels in a gully creek setting.

The upper level, entered from the front door, opens to an expansive living room with picture window views of your own nature garden, and glass doors opening to a huge barbecue zone allowing tree-top outdoor entertaining. Step through to a gorgeous Tasmanian Oak kitchen with open-plan dining and a standout feature that will amaze your visitors – an enormous granite benchtop and breakfast bar, beautifully crafted from ancient South Australian stone.

Glass doors from the dining area lead to elevated timber decking overlooking a pool deck with a breathtakingly high 5.4 metre gabled roof. For those times when you prefer aquatic relaxation with bubbles and steam, a fully sheltered spa is also outside.

The home's downstairs level has the master bedroom with direct access to the pool deck and spa, plus bedroom 2 with serene bush views, a central bathroom, and a family room with a glass sliding door to the home's second al fresco zone - commanding a view of your winter creek and its surrounding walking trail.

The grounds are fully fenced around the perimeter and also feature a raised walkway; a great way to enjoy one of the property's summer highlights - the officially accredited Butterfly Garden. The grounds also provide multiple undercover vehicle and trailer parking spaces, plus a large garage/workshop with 3-phase power.

From virtually every window inside and every standpoint outside, the views around the property will thrill and delight you every day. This abundant bushland is also home to native wildlife too varied to list here; needless to say, you'll constantly enjoy uplifting companionship from all manner of feathered and furry visitors.

An enriching and enthralling lifestyle is waiting for you, only 12 km from the CBD, and mere minutes from the amenities of Belair Central and the Belair National Park, plus top schools including St John's Grammar, St Peter's Lutheran College, and zoned for Belair Primary and Blackwood High - which are both International Baccalaureate Schools.

There is so much more to see and say about this property and the sought-after advantages it offers – the only way to take it all in, is to visit and inspect as soon as you possibly can!
