Beautiful Old Stone House in the Country
Situated approx. 13 kms East of Jamestown and 230 kms North of the Adelaide CBD, this large, gracious renovated stone house was built in 1903 and is approximately 1.5 kms from its nearest neighbor. The house, on approx. 5 acres, comprises 4 bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, enclosed rear veranda, bathroom and 2 toilets. The house is surrounded by an extensive garden including many fruit trees and has its own bore and rainwater supplies. Outbuildings include a double garage, double carport, woodshed and historic stone shearing shed.
Between Adelaide and the Flinders Ranges, set in rolling hills with an elevation of around 500 meters above sea level, Canowie Belt was a surveyed town in the late nineteenth century, and the remains of the oval, churches and the local post office are still extant a couple of kms from the house. It is now a quiet farming district, with large farms having gradually absorbed the smallholdings that were viable in the early to mid twentieth century.
The house has solar panels with a generous feed in tariff (transferable to new owners) and a good vegetable garden. The nearby rural centre of Jamestown has a hospital and medical centre, a large supermarket, 3 banks, Toyota and Mitsubishi dealers, 2 hardware stores and 3 hotels as well as a variety of other services. The sawmill is a major local employer and the town is surrounded by rich farmland.
The house is NBN satelite connected and is close to a new Optus tower so has good mobile service. It also has satelite Foxtel connection. Nearby districts within an hours drive include historic Burra and the Clare Valley with its many wineries. Port Pirie is about an hour's drive away.
The house has been lovingly renovated by the current owners over the 15 years they have lived here. For those seeking an idyllic largely self contained life in the country with proximity to services, this could be it.
