The Top-house of Crows Nest Road is a beautiful, functional house enhanced tenfold by its vibrant location.
Every facet of the home is designed with the location in mind, to frame, complement, and respect it.
Accordingly, the most striking aspect of this property are the views it affords.
A number of rich blue bodies of water are visible, including Lake Alexandrina, the Coorong, and the ocean itself. Stretches of coastline can be seen, including that of Goolwa, Middleton and Port Elliot.
Finally, the hills of Hindmarsh Valley slope to the west, completing the picturesque panorama.
More immediately, the property itself contains a scenic slice of native flora and fauna, including gum trees, bird life and the iconic kangaroo.
The home also respects the environment that surrounds it, integrating a water-cycling system and solar power into its architecture.
But the Top-house does not lack for any of the things featured in more metropolitan luxury homes.
A foyer boasting 5 metre vaulted ceilings and porcelain tiles makes a very good first impression.
A designer kitchen, as well as dining area and ground floor living space enhance this modern, luxury feel.
The master bedroom features a spacious wardrobe and a particularly gorgeous view of the coastline, as well as an adjoining luxury ensuite.
A timber staircase leads upstairs, to a plethora of entertaining areas, the abundance of windows and balconies showing the designers’ eagerness to show off these amazing views.
Guest bedrooms, home office and bathroom complete the upper floor, all of them beautifully furnished and filled with strategic windows.
Despite these urban luxuries, the Top-house still makes sure to take advantage of its rural setting.
Almost 8 acres of securely fenced land contain the home, as well as 2 paddocks, huge barn-style shed, and two sources of hydration – bore water and rain water.
The greatest strength of the Top-house is undoubtedly its views. Those on offer are so picturesque, on a still day a visitor could be forgiven for thinking the windows were paintings hung on the walls.
The Top-house is currently on sale for $1.05 to $1.15 million and is being represented by Paul and Joanne Dean of Raine & Horne Victor.
