From the moment you walk into ‘Almaria’ you will be captivated with the large light filled rooms, quality restorations and feelings of home. She will capture your heart.
‘Almaria’ is steeped in history, being the Schwerdt family home for over 100 years. The current owners have invested wisely in the restoration and extension of the home over the past 18 years and have enjoyed raising their family in such an iconic residence and country community.
It sits on almost 5 acres of manicured gardens and open pastures. Perfect for you to enjoy the open space and fresh country air. If you are needing to commute, it is perfectly positioned only 25 minutes from Gawler and the Barossa Valley and now with the Northern Connector the city and suburbs have never been closer.
With 5 bedrooms all ranging in size there is ample choice for all the family. The master suite offers more flexibility if you are needing a separate space for an aging relative or even a B & B (subject to all consents and approvals).
You will never want or need to leave this beautifully restored property, with manicured gardens, solar heated saltwater pool and gabled pergola your friends and family will always be popping round to enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
