About Karen Vial
Karen is proudly a South Australian, born & raised in the mid-north of the state in Port Pirie and Terowie. She relocated to Adelaide in 1988 with work. In 2014 she opened her own real estate company and in 2016 her guest home was also launched online. She lives between Adelaide & Gawler, in between guest bookings and absolutely loves the balance of a city and country lifestyle. Karen's father's family hailed from Clare and the UK and her mother's family came from the local areas in Mallala and Wasleys. Her grandfather managed the Prince Albert Hotel in Gawler's main street in the early 1900s, so she believes her family 'connections' have called her 'home'.
Karen Vial purchased this House in 2010
Why Karen Vial chose Willaston
Karen thoroughly enjoys travelling and has done so extensively throughout Australia and is making her way through her overseas 'bucket list'. She loves experiencing new places, good food and nice wines. It was by pure chance with a pending relocation in her employment to Gawler in 2010, that she purchased the property. When these plans changed direction, she retained the property and launched it online as an accommodation home in April 2016. Karen & her husband David, were married in the actual church on 30 July 2016 with a reception for family & friends in marquees around the building. Sadly, David passed away in Adelaide on 22 November 2016, but Karen has retained the home for her guests, as a tribute to the wonderful times they spent together here and the greatest memory of their time together, being their wedding day.
What makes this House unique
Karen fell in love with the property, within 2 steps inside the foyer on the open day! Having a passion for character homes/properties, she has gradually added to the conversion of 2001 and the renovations from the owners in between. Karen very much wanted THE CHURCH to reflect easy living and home comfort and ambience. You have the opportunity to stay in a former church, in a township steeped in SA history, which is also located next to the Barossa Valley & on the way to the Clare Valley.
