Selling agent Jesse Manuel said the unique property was attracting a variety of buyers.
“We’ve been inundated with local, interstate and international interest,” he said.
“There are limited properties of this calibre currently available, it will be very competitive.”
Mr Manuel said the vendors were the fourth generation of their family to live in the home, which originally formed part of the circa 1865 Colville Station.
“The original fruit trees (on the property) still bear fruit,” he said.
“The vendors built the home with the help of local designer Jerry Keyte, using local stone, local slate and woolstore Oregon timber which is now over 100-years-old.”
Mr Manuel said the vendors designed the home to seamlessly integrate with the landscape, offering a relaxed lifestyle.
“The home is gently tucked into the hill, sympathetic to the surrounding landscape and has heaps of character,” he said.
“The feel, the views, the lake, the peace and quiet, the wine cellars are all standouts. Plus the wildlife, there’s trout, wrens, echidnas, kangaroos and eagles, even a pair of swans have dropped in.”
The circa 1990 three-bedroom, two-bathroom homestead features exposed stone walls, timber and slate floors, and large picture windows which overlook the spring-fed lake.
The property also features a 7.5kw solar system, rainwater storage, a shearing shed, sheep yards, a workshop, a lucerne paddock with fixed irrigation and a five-megalitre water license for irrigation.
Mr Manuel said the property would be ideal for buyers looking for a lifestyle change proximity to amenities, located just under an hour from Adelaide CBD.
“Properties of the character of Colville, with so many lifestyle and boutique farming opportunities, are hard to find,” he said.
“It would suit people seeking a rural lifestyle in proximity to the city, international buyers attracted to the highly acclaimed McLaren Vale wine region and beautiful South Coast or even vignerons.”
