If walls could speak, no doubt this beautifully renovated heritage villa could tell a few stories! Built precisely 100 years ago, it served as the Myponga post office until the 1940s and features in the book To Find the Way: Yankalilla and District 1836-1986. (An updated edition is available at the Fleurieu Information Centre in Yankalilla.) Situated on an acre block just minutes from Myponga township, it boasts panoramic views of the lush hillcountry. The house has been restored with an eye to its historical character, and the result is a gracious and tasteful family home full of old-world charm.
There are four spacious bedrooms, two with heaters in the original fireplaces; of the two bathrooms, the main is very large, while the second bathroom features a corner spa bath. The formal lounge has an open fire place surrounded by a stunning raised mantelpiece, while the formal dining room can double as a study/home office. The large open-plan living/dining area is tiled with a combustion heater, with a wall of mirrored built-in cupboards giving the illusion of even more space. The kitchen features Tasmanian Oak cupboards an electric cooktop, dishwasher, island bench and plenty of storage, and includes a feature wood stove as a conversation piece.
This home is also ideal for two families as the large family room area is fully self contained, with access to its own bathroom and has its own kitchenette.
Outdoors, a large verandah shelters an entertainment/seating area and overlooks stunning established lawns and gardens. Other features include two rainwater tanks plumbed to the house, triple carport adjacent to a triple garage/workshop, as well as one smaller shed and wood storage shed.
There are also two fenced paddocks ideal for horses and or other animals. All this situated on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula only 45 minutes drive to Adelaide CBD and the ferry to Kangaroo Island.
