Head for the Hills without being too far from the city
An Echunga home offers a relaxed lifestyle in a picturesque location, yet is still close to shops and essential services.
Bob and Deidre Slade built the home through Medallion Homes 16 months ago, sparing no expense on its creation.

“We’re delighted with the end result – it’s a beautiful home, very modern and has lots of open space,” Mr Slade says.
“We didn’t spare any expense – we put in underfloor hot water heating and enhanced that with double-glazing; and all the living areas are north-facing. It’s a beautifully positioned allotment – we’ve got a creek that runs the entire width of the property that has spring water in it 52 weeks a year; and we’ve got a dam and a bore. And all this just 10 minutes from Mt Barker and five minutes from Hahndorf.”
The home has four bedrooms, multiple indoor and outdoor entertainment spaces, acoustic Gyprock in noisy areas, a 24-panel solar system, substantial shedding, a bore and a dam. Mr Slade says the home is a great entertainer, handling a crowd with ease.
“We’ve had Christmas dinner here with the entire family of 20 and it was a marvellous day,” he says. “We’re only selling because we’re downsizing to Hahndorf. Whether it’s a family, horse people or people looking to move down from a bigger property – someone’s going to get a fantastic property.”
