The formal lounge/dining room is grand in design and offers plenty of room for the entire family with feature marble fire place and stunning views over the Gawler Main Street.

The basement level is what takes this character home above the typical stone home, offering a second level with three large bedrooms, one comprising of an ensuite and another having a separate entrance to the outside of the home. The possibilities are endless with this space having the option of being turned into a granny flat or transformed into an office premises subject to council approval.

Outside just keeps on giving with a balcony wrapping around the front of the home to take in the views surrounding the home, above-ground pool with decked entertaining area, 12m x 6m (approx.) shed with concrete, power and three metre clearance, a 8m x 6m (approx.) carport and fully irrigated gardens.
