A rocking listing in the Barossa Valley
Everything ‘50s is cool again in these rocking, retro Barossa Valley digs.
Featuring an authentic-looking dinner-style kitchen and living quarters reminiscent of Happy Days, the unusual two-home property at 155 Angaston Rd, Nuriootpa has been getting plenty of attention from buyers since its launch to the market.
But it’s not the first time all eyes have fallen on the South Australian address.
The two-home residence, which also moonlights a luxury bed and breakfast, featured in the first season of Channel 7’s Instant Hotel, which first aired in November, 2017.
The show is now streaming successfully on Netflix and follows 10 couples who have converted their homes into hotels.
Vendors Jannine and Mark More, who are selling the property through Homburg Real Estate with a price guide of $975,000, said it was their love for rock ’n’ roll that inspired the conversion of the family home and a garage at the rear.
“We’ve been in the Barossa for about eight years and always had a love for all things retro and used to dance rock ’n’ roll,” Mrs More said.
“So we had this idea to turn our home into something unique and convert the garage into a B&B.
“I think we all want to step back to our childhood from time to time, and the feedback we always get from clients, or even people who call us because they’ve seen the show on Netflix, they say it allows them to do that.”

Set on 0.51ha, the sale includes a four-bedroom, three bathroom home and a two-bedroom, two-bathroom garage conversion. There’s also a two-car garage attached to the main home, and a separate three-car garage and toolshed.
Both homes are currently used as luxury bed and breakfast, and both come with an eclectic mix of American and Australian decor from the 1950s to the 1980s.
The extensive collection, along with the fixtures and fittings, are for sale in the package.
While the property didn’t win the series, Mrs More said it had won the hearts of travellers, both near and far.
“We entered the show because we wanted to promote the Barossa Valley and I like to think we achieved that,” she said.
“It’s been exceptional for the business and most weekends, we’re booked out with both of them. We’re also being inundated will calls from America from people who watched the show and love the set up.”
Despite the success, Mrs More said it was time for change.
“We just don’t want to burn out with our passion so it’s time for someone else to pick up the banner,” she said.
“That said, we’re not in a rush to sell and are happy to look after the place for another 12 to 18 months, if it means we find the right buyer.”
