About this listing
This gorgeous bluestone cottage is the epitome of historic charm, set on a 30 acre property with your own private olive grove, horse paddocks and operational stone well. Enjoy amazing views across the undulating landscape from this rural getaway.

A return verandah with wrought iron lacework leads to the front door of Dorstep Cottage. Rich with lead light detailing, it opens to soaring 9 foot ceilings and Federation woodwork.

A spacious American oak kitchen with stainless steel appliances and halogen cooktop overlooks the open plan living area. Huge picture windows frame the view, with tiled floors underfoot and wood burning combustion heater. Modern conveniences include LED downlights and a new reverse cycle split system air conditioner. A woodbox allows outside and internal loading for maximum con-venience.

The master bedroom has a private en suite, with built in robes to bedrooms two and three and TV power outlets in all three rooms. French doors open directly to the outdoors from two of the bed-rooms so you can step outside and enjoy the fresh morning air. The main bathroom has a charming claw foot tub, with a separate laundry adjoining.

Step out to a full length pergola, 4.5m wide and perfect for a lazy Sunday afternoon of entertaining. A freestanding studio with its own verandah is an ideal spot for guests, home office, tack room or peaceful retreat, with an outside toilet for extra convenience.

It sits amid your own private olive grove, with 89 mature olive trees dripping with Kalamata & Man-zanilla varieties for eating and oil production. The land is ideal for grazing, with two entrances onto the property.

There are multiple sheds, including a huge 15 x 5.7m shed with attached double carport, a 3 x 4.5m shed with attached chook pen and separate woodshed. Other amenities include three rainwater tanks totaling 67,500L of storage and plumbed to the house, with a 22,500 header tank, dam and stone well with spring.

The property has three phase power, with a 1.5kW solar system and solid brick internal walls to help keep running costs low.

This private idyll is just a few minutes from the local primary school at Springton, and 15 minutes from Williamstown shops, schools and medical services. It's around 50 minutes to Tea Tree Plaza and 70 to Adelaide CBD.
