Tressilian Farm - A brilliant rural lifestyle property
Set on 20.9ha (51.6 acres approx.), the homestead was created for the active family looking to live the good life in peaceful privacy and serenity, but with the flexibility and facilities to host and entertain indoors and outdoors on a large scale.
Perfectly located adjacent Charleston, Tressilian Farm offers grand family living with up to four double bedrooms, two opulent bathrooms, gracious formal lounge and formal dining, plus enormous kitchen and family living meals area.
Positioned well back from the road and taking full advantage of the property, the homestead itself is a short drive along several hundred metres of winding driveway, providing absolute privacy and solitude. The Georgian-inspired home of outstanding stature is poised in an elevated position, offering stunning views over the estate and beyond.
Graced with impressive wrought iron verandahs, the home exudes an aura of dignity and space with an understated elegance, where an inviting warmth and sense of liveability, makes it perfect for a modern family country lifestyle.
The magnitude of the home is evident the moment you enter via double Western red cedar doors and into the large entry hall. The entire home is grand in appearance, where lofty ceilings, adorned with antique French light fittings, are complemented by decorative Georgian cornice, architraves and roundels.
The extensive use of solid timber doors and Tasmanian oak and vintage jarrah flooring is superb and French doors open from all main rooms to the outside, providing brilliant natural light and stunning views in all directions.
A beautifully proportioned formal lounge room and a master suite flank the entry hall. The spacious master suite, with walk-through robe, provides ample storage and the ensuite bathroom is large, with dual-basin stone-topped vanity and fully-frameless glass shower screen.
Beyond the formal lounge room, the equally impressive formal dining room features a secret door that provides discreet access to a bar room and through to the classical style kitchen that features a central island bench, thick stone bench-tops, farmhouse sink and quality stainless steel appliances.
The northerly aspect of this gourmet kitchen ensures it is light-filled year-round and provides stunning views over the enormous terrace, just perfect for year-round entertaining. The adjacent laundry is generous, offers copious storage and provides a handy guest toilet and vanity.
The spacious family/meals area comes complete with built-in entertaining unit and Bose sound system where you can enjoy sitting in front of the huge wood-fired combustion stove in winter, fed by the ample supply of firewood on the property. French doors open to a large outdoor entertaining area featuring automatic retractable awnings, setting the scene for the largest of gatherings with family and friends, whilst ensuring outdoor comfort in all seasons.
A further three large bedrooms, all with French doors and generous built-ins, are serviced by a large and opulent main bathroom. Worthy of a high-end retreat and boasting a sumptuously appointed dual-basin stone-topped vanity, a deep free-standing soaker bath, high-end fixtures and fittings and floor to ceiling tiling.
A stunning country lifestyle property of over twenty hectares, with extensive shedding and infrastructure in place, this property will appeal to those seeking a special rural environment and premium location.
Catering for all types of livestock, especially cattle, the property is well-fenced and offers premium grazing land in open pasture as well as Manna gum-studded and grassed forest.
Less than 5 minutes to the centre of Mount Torrens or Lobethal and under 10 minutes to Woodside, this is a rare opportunity to secure a quality and unique country homestead, a world away from the stresses of city life, whilst just a 45-minute leisurely commute to the CBD.
