Get back to nature in striking Crafers home

A Crafers home offers a tranquil escape and easy access to the very best the Adelaide Hills has to offer.

Sitting on a spacious 1770sqm allotment, the home was custom-built 18 years ago to make the most of its incredible location and expansive views, while also offering a luxurious lifestyle. Philip Shorten, together with Matthew O’Grady, is selling the 14 Constance Ave property on behalf of his late father John, and John’s late partner Lois O’Grady, and says they both adored their time there.

“They met quite late after both of their partners had passed away and, at a more mature stage of their life – they were in their early sixties – decided they wanted to buy a block of land and build and stay up in the Hills, and they commissioned a young architect to design it and they just loved it,” Mr Shorten said. “Lois had a flair for design, and they started from scratch with the garden, which is now well established and stunning.

“It was a big project and probably took a bit longer than they would have liked, but it turned out great. My father did some of the exterior works himself – he built the stone walls, he built the pizza oven and the workshop and shed was really his man cave.

“They put a lot into it and it’s been a lot of hard work getting it to that point where now it virtually takes care of itself – it really offers that country feel not far from the city.”

The home has up to five bedrooms, 411.87sqm of indoor and outdoor living space, quality fixtures and fittings throughout and is ideally located to offer not just a stunning vista, but great entertainment options and easy access to Hills amenities.

“That part of the hills there, the Piccadilly Valley, is just gorgeous,” Mr Shorten says. “We’d have family Easter gatherings and Easter egg hunts with the kids in the garden. We’ve held Christmas parties out there on the decking and that’s a great spot for barbecues or an afternoon gin and tonic, and because you’re so close to everything you can ride a bike everywhere. It’s such a peaceful area but yet they could be at restaurants within minutes.”

With quality schools within easy reach, Mr Shorten says the home would suit families, but would also hold enormous appeal for professional couples, retirees with visiting guests or anyone looking for a striking and luxurious property.

“They certainly loved it, as I’m sure the new owners will too.”
