Magnificently designed and built in 2013, careful thought has been put into every exquisite detail of this dramatic property that's sure to impress. A striking rendered brick exterior stands out against the sun drenched levelled lawn. Inside, the living and wet areas are floored in sleek polished concrete, warmed in winter by cutting edge hydronic underfloor heating - reverse cycle to cool the floor during summer. The residence comprises three King-size suites (one of which can be split into king singles for kids), one Queen-size suite and a Double suite, all with wall mounted, flat screen televisions in each room. We cater for 10 adults in total however we have two fold out beds for children and can supply a cot as well so total occupancy can be 13 people. Please contact us should you need more bedding and we'll do our utmost to accommodate your needs.
From a central corridor, the master bedroom suite comprises a walk-in robe and modern ensuite. Across the corridor lie bedrooms suites two and three, with bedroom four and five and formal lounge at the rear of the house. Both the ensuite and master bathrooms feature floating timber vanities and ultra-modern styling, with a stone freestanding bath in pride of place in the master bathroom. All luxury white towels and linen is provided, along with bathrobes in each bedroom for your comfort.
The kitchen is one of a kind, full gourmet kitchen made by a specialist cabinetmaker using hundred-year-old Oregon floorboards sourced from the old Islington Railway Station. An integrated dishwasher, AEG range-hood, induction cooktop and Bosch electric oven act as a modern foil against the antique cabinetry. For your comfort, the kitchen is fully stocked with coffee pod machine, microwave and toaster, along with full cutlery, crockery, glassware and pots/pans as you would expect from a fully furnished kitchen. A pantry with basic supplies is provided for those looking to enjoy a night in self catering rather than venturing out to local restaurants. Gourmet cooked breakfast provisions can be arranged, along with local artisan cheese and crackers platters or a larger, gourmet cheese, dips and cured meats platters.
At the end of the corridor, the home opens up to the real heart - a huge open-plan dining and family area with dining table for 10 people, presided over by the timber kitchen. There is additional seating for 4 people at the island bench. There are multiple living areas so groups can enjoy their own space if required. One living room has a large flat screen television with Foxtel and the other offers a more tranquil space as a quite area for relaxing. Board games and a Wii gaming system is provided for the kids! Open the cafe doors from the family room and enjoy summer breezes from the paved outdoor area - the perfect spot to end your day. Let the kids run around on the large block of approx. 1500 square metres and watch on from the outdoor lounges and dining settings.
As an area regarded as one of Australia's best wine regions, the Adelaide Hills is fast becoming one of the most popular wedding destinations in South Australia, given the abundance and diversity of fabulous wineries in the region. Why not gather all your family together at The Oak Nest and use the residence as the base for your special wedding weekend. We can also consider small weddings for close friends and family on the property, terms and conditions would apply. Or, The Oak Nest could host the bridal party for the weekend with a girl's night, followed by wedding preparations on the special day (hair and make up can be done on site) and why not consider inviting all your guests to a recovery breakfast or lunch the following day? We can organise a chef to cater for your needs, simply give us a call to discuss your requirements or give our details to your wedding planner.
Whatever the reason for your visit to the gorgeous Adelaide Hills, we look forward to welcoming you to a beautiful region, built on years of cultural tradition and overflowing community pride. The local villages of Oakbank, Woodside, Lobethal and Hahndorf are peppered with art and antique stores for that something special to take home, artisan breweries and fine restaurants, and a host of places where you can relax in country-style cafes serving world class coffee and fresh, local produce. We're only 20 minutes from the toll gate but feel like a world away!
