Get back to nature without losing suburban perks at 16 Anglesea Rd, Victor Harbor
A Victor Harbor home offers a country lifestyle and a feeling of isolation, yet is just two minutes from the town’s shops and attractions.
Kirsty and Michael Forbes built their Anglesea Rd home in 2014, looking to create a property their young family could enjoy, and a place that was at one with its environment.
Now this backyard takes some beating …
Absolute beachfront priced well under $600K
New build inspiration: Affordable family living
“A lot of love and care has gone into this place,” Mrs Forbes says.
“We really wanted to bring the outdoors in so, when you’re in the house, you have a view out to sky and trees from every single window – we’ve made the most of being in the country, but then we’re just two minutes from the main street.
The property has worked really well, and our kids, who were much younger then, loved having all the land to explore and having swings and cubbies and the pool – it was perfect for them and it’s been a great family home.”
The home features four bedrooms, with three at one end and the master suite, with two built-in robes and a luxe ensuite with a double spa bath in its own wing at the other.
An open-plan kitchen, family and dining room sits in the heart of the home and opens to a large covered entertainment area overlooking a swimming pool. The seven-star energy rated home has luxury fixtures and fittings throughout, a large garage and workshop, a 40-panel 10kw solar system and 67000L of rainwater storage.
“It’s got everything our family could have wanted, and the nature and birdlife here is incredible and something we’ll miss,” Mrs Forbes says. “We’re opting for a lifestyle change now and are moving closer to the beach as our kids are now older and into surfing. It will be very sad to leave this place, that’s for sure.”
