Always of intrigue to the locals, this stunning two-storey home sits proudly aloft Porters Hill, with incredible sweeping views across the Fleurieu Peninsula. Though within town limits, this Mediterranean-style home is surrounded by farm land, creating a private 1200sqm oasis on the edge of Encounter Bay. When you think Mediterranean, do you think of sea vistas? So do we! Breathtaking scenery from the Bluff through to the Coorong and idyllic rolling hills can be enjoyed from many vantage points within this home. An extraordinarily large alfresco area graces the full width of the abode's frontage. From first glance you'll know you are in for a treat.
Surrounded by farming land and the original quarry (Zoned 'Primary Production'), a private road starts your journey to this secluded hillside haven - with no through-traffic or unexpected visitors, tranquility is guaranteed.
The home was designed by Artec Buildings Designers and built in 1991 it was then tastefully updated by its current owners in 2010 plus more recently.
At ground level is a 9 x 7.2 m, three-bay garage with under-home water tanks on each side. There's plenty of room for cars, a workshop and more.
Once you reach the top of the rendered staircase, the grand alfresco area stretches out before you for a distinctly European vibe. From this elevated vantage point, you'll be spoiled with expansive views across the township below. Charming blue louvered shutters and massive Grecian pots complement the façade. Abundant doors and windows invite the outdoors in and flood the home with natural light. And for those with an eye for detail, take note of the Italian glass light shades.
Step inside the lounge and living areas, where earthy terracotta tiles complement the Mediterranean style. A slow combustion fireplace provides the warmth you only get from wood and the timber mantel matches the home's other timber features.
The renovated entertainer's kitchen is stunning. Modern in design with stone bench tops, gloss cabinetry, glass splash-back and quality appliances. Abundant cupboards and a large island bench create a kitchen that's as practical as it is beautiful.
The master and guest suites are located on the lower level. Very generous in proportion, both open to the alfresco and fabulous views. The ensuite and main bathrooms are also found on the lower level. Last, but never least, is a good-sized laundry with direct access to the ground level (due to the slope of the land) at the rear.
As you climb the internal staircase, you are lead to a central lounge area that opens to a tiled balcony with wrought iron feature balustrade. Massive feature windows look out upon that spectacular view and a built-in bookcase makes for the perfect library or reading room, or parents' or even teenagers' retreat.
A second sitting room would make a delightful music room or another generous bedroom if needed.
A second master suite or guest area provides his and hers walk-in robes, one of which features a desk for a private office space. The upstairs ensuite has been fully renovated with a screenless shower.
Energy efficiency is guaranteed with 16 solar panels, so you can conveniently run all the creature comforts with complete peace of mind.
Relax and enjoy a unique, spacious retreat with Mediterranean charm that offers you seclusion and incredible panoramic views that are simply second to none. Experience this very special property for yourself and get a feel for the idyllic lifestyle that could be yours in this extraordinary home.
