PICTURE perfect, and surrounded by undulating land and gardens, a return veranda character home offers rural-style living in the heart of Aldgate.
The property at 8 Beverly Rd, which also includes a separate 1890s restored cottage, is set on a 1ha block, just minutes from the shops and services of Aldgate Village.
Its highlight is undoubtedly its gardens, which include more than 165 roses and dozens of camellias, as well as many other flowering plants and trees.
The next owners will also be able to make use of a chook house, compost bays and a raised vegetable garden.
You can take it all in from the new deck, which overlooks a lawned area and stone-walled gardens. The cottage meanwhile, could make an ideal art studio, teenage retreat, or even an option for intergenerational living.
The property also includes several sheds, the largest of which has an attached carport and could be used to store up to eight vehicles.
Step inside the main residence and you will find well-presented accommodation, decorated in classic neutral colour tones.
Three bedrooms are privately set to one side of the home, with easy access to the large laundry and the main bathroom. They each have built-in wardrobes and the master suite extends to an ensuite with a shower, a toilet and a vanity unit.
Living areas comprise a separate lounge, a kitchen and dining zone, and a large family room with a slow combustion heater. The warm and inviting timber kitchen, meanwhile, has a dishwasher, an island bench, a double fridge space and plenty of cupboards.
Ducted heating and cooling provides year-round comfort.
The property is on the market with Belle Property Adelaide Hills.
