Nestled amongst 3.5 acres of towering gums in a spectacular park-like setting, Yarrunda is the ideal 'any season' getaway. Being only 10 minutes from SA's best beaches at Middleton and Goolwa, the property is perfectly positioned to provide Summer enjoyment, and the campfire (wood provided) and cosy wood combustion heater make for a perfect Winter retreat.
Imagine toasting marshmallows around the campfire on a cold, clear winters' night (please enquire about campfires as fire restrictions are usually in place between November and April, including total fire bans depending on the weather), lunching with friends at one of the numerous tree-shaded picnic areas on the property, watching the birds on the dam and lake, or spending a summers' day by the beach. And, of course, visiting the local Wine regions can take place at any time!!
Yarrunda is ideally located just 10 minutes from the major regional centres of Goolwa and Port Elliot, the fantastic surf at Middleton, and 15 minutes from Victor Harbor for all your shopping and cultural needs.
Imagine a day at the beach, any season, and coming home to Yarrunda with certainty that there are no nearby neighbours having parties, no disturbing noise - just tranquility, peace and quiet.
Nature lovers will delight in the abundant bird life with Yarrunda being 'home turf' for several Kookaburra, Magpie & Galah families, as well as a haven for Superb Blue Wrens, Rosellas, New Holland Honeyeaters and Firetail Finches to name just a few. A thriving nearby Kangaroo population and the occasional Echidna make this a true 'Aussie' paradise. And for those who enjoy hiking, the splendid Scott Conservation Park is a mere 2 minute walk away. Bring your bikes and take a picnic to enjoy a ride through Scott Conservation Park fire trails.
Completing the property is a delightful 3-bedroom contemporary design home with a warm, earthy atmosphere and spectacular views of the surrounding gardens and gum trees from picture windows in every room.
The home consists of a spacious open-plan living area complete with feature stone fireplace (equipped with fan-forced combustion heater), formal dining area, high raked ceilings and bright kitchen featuring bold trendy colours and incorporating new modern appliances. Other features of the home include 3 bedrooms (2 with built-ins -quilts & pillows provided, please bring own linen), refurbished character bathroom (separate toilet), and an under-cover courtyard. Verandahs all around add to the homestead appeal of Yarrunda, and many guests comment on the relaxing time they have spent on the verandah watching the array of birds and generally unwinding.
BBQ and outdoor seating/dining areas compliment the idea that Yarrunda, "place of big trees", is a place to unwind and relax, explore and enjoy. Indoors we have a range of games and DVDs and CDs, and even some books.
