1 St Peters Terrace has played several roles since its construction in 1850, and has taken to the role of family home with as much aptitude as the others.
The Malpas family owned this property for roughly the first 130 years of its existence, during which it served as the Willunga General Store and Post Office. More recently, the mansion was transformed, to serve as a coffee house, guest house and illustrious Bed & Breakfast.
In its time, the property has been a place of temporary residence, providing luxurious but brief accommodation to travellers. Its evolution has allowed for a variety of alterations, which serve to make it a fantastic family home to spend generations in.
As is ideal for heritage properties such as these, the mansion retains the idyllic aspects of its past whilst integrating modern necessities and luxuries. Original slate can be found in the floors, timber in the floors and mouldings, ornate ceilings and arches also featuring in large rooms which reflect the archaic origins of the mansion.
Kitchens and bathrooms, whose modernity is most essential to the functionality of a home, have thankfully been improved to offer all the luxury a contemporary owner would expect. The addition of solar panels and air conditioning complete its modernisation. A total of six bedrooms and six bathrooms leave little concerns with regards to space.
1 St Peters Terrace is perfect for the owner wishing for the rural experience. An organically-inclined owner will find abundant plant life, and sufficient gardening opportunities to turn their green thumb into a shining emerald.
These opportunities consist of thriving fruit trees and a flourishing veggie patch, several lawned areas, picturesque and varied ground cover, and gardens which fill the perfectly landscaped frontage and private courtyard.
For a prospective buyer, this historic mansion offers a unique opportunity to take advantage of centuries of evolution and refinement. Its heritage, stylistic and botanic qualities are not to be missed.
The property is currently on sale for $1.295 million, and is being represented by Sandy Mount and Holly Freeland of Harcourts Wine Coast.
