About this listing
Rhine park homestead, a magnificent Bluestone residence of some 12 rooms built in the 1860's on a grand scale is nestled among beautiful country park like settings with stately red gums and moss covered granite outcrops, together with the attractive countryside, rolling hills and views of the Barossa rangers as the back drop, other historic buildings, barns and a second home comprising of 3 bedrooms simply frame only a small part of what this property has to offer.
Wide covered verandahs flow around the residence to provide ample shade for alfresco entertaining and places to retreat to for quiet contemplation, no matter the weather, sit on the pool side and take in the views that surround this historic homestead, this is a life style on grand proportions that we could only ever dream of until now.
The sale of Rhine Park represents a rare opportunity to purchase one of South Australia's early homesteads in top condition for the age and so close to Adelaide.
This grand homestead once owned by the Murray's was home to one of the finest Quarter horse Studs around, since 1912 the property has been used for grazing sheep and cattle with some cropping.
This unique and exquisite residence lies within easy reach of Adelaide approx. 80KM and a short 20KM to Angaston and Mt Pleasant, with some school bus services available. This makes it a manageable property with great schooling options.
