General description

  • Main home
Breathtaking cosy stone cottage in Highland Valley in the Adelaide Hills with landscaped gardens and surrounding paddocks.
Open plan living area with wooden floorboards and high wooden cathedral ceilings. Separate large but comfortable living area for watching tv. The cottage has reverse cycle air conditioning and a combustion heater with a plentiful supply of kindling and logs.
The cottage is on 4 acres of serene, low maintenance land in a valley with amazing views and plenty of space for long bushwalks. There is a huge eagles nest a short walk from the dam, which is revisited every year by our resident Wedge Tail Eagles.
The cottage is just 15 minutes from Mount Barker in the North or historic Strathalbyn in the South. Hahndorf is only 10 minutes from Mount Barker. We are close to Langhorne Creek Wineries and not far from a huge selection of other wineries, restaurants and cafes. The beach and the city are all in easy reach..

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • A dog
  • 2 cats
  • A horse
  • Birds
  • Fish
  • Farm animals
We need someone to love and care for our animals and our home for a month until we return. Our dog (a Boxer) can’t be left alone at night and so this house-sit would only suit people who are content to relax at home and enjoy the peace and ambience here or go for day trips.
There is plenty of room for a caravan or motor home.
It is essential that whoever apply are non-smoking.

We live on a 75 acre strata property. There are three houses on the property and each house has four acres for personal use and the remaining 63 acres is common land. We've been turning our four acres into a gorgeous hobby farm. Our cottage is built from local stone and has high raked wooden ceilings and masses of windows to capture all the beautiful views. We are located in a valley in the Adelaide Hills between Mount Barker and Strathalbyn. Each town is approximately 20km either way from us. Adelaide City is a 40 minute drive. We are very close to all the major wine regions including Langhorne Creek and McClaren Vale. This is also a mecca for wonderful produce and artisan markets on the weekends. Just outside Mount Barker is historic Hahndorf and there are also a number of fabulous historical pubs - one of the the oldest pub in South Australia, The Three Brothers Arms, which does excellent food and great music on a Friday night, is 9 kms away.
