"Willow Springs" - 20 Acres steeped in history

SOLD - This listing was sold in November 2018
Every now and then a property comes to the market where you are quite simply in awe of the history and authenticity of the Adelaide Hills. This is one of those times.

Willow Springs settled in the 1860's resembles a bye-gone era when time went a little slower and things were built to last. This 20 acre property has stood the test of time, from the 7 stables through to the homestead, which in part features the original 1860's cottage.

The grounds are simple yet beautiful with a great expanse of lawn playing homage to a much loved and aptly named mud brick "folly".

The hens, sheltered by a small forest of native plums pay their way with bountiful eggs, whilst the neighbouring barn with open fire and an array of memorabilia of yesteryear provides a wonderful warmth for entertaining family and friends.

Standing proudly beside the homestead is "the old Oak tree" with sprawling branches providing cool dappled shade for those hot summer days. This property is something special. It's a place to unwind, relax and get back to enjoying the simple pleasures. A place where the sound of silence is only altered by the birdlife or the grazing sheep.
