“Innisfree” A Country Life

75 Acres – 15 Acres of Award-winning Shiraz & Chardonnay – Rolling Hills – Architectural Home & Gardens – Water Licence

Nestled amongst rolling hills and magnificent ancient gums in the Barossa’s celebrated Eden Valley wine district, resides an exceptional architecturally inspired rural estate, offering unique lifestyle opportunities to the astute buyer.

If you have a passion for wine or just an idyllic country life with income, “Innisfree” might be for you. Envisaged and created over decades by the current owners employing the renowned visionary Ken Milne in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, gardens by Viesturs Cielens. This is not a lifestyle by accident, each space inside and out has been created to welcome, embrace and enjoy.

The home has a sophisticated, timeless style with first-quality fit-outs, making use of the finest materials sourced Australia wide. Custom stone and bespoke timber combine with walls of glass opening the home to sun, sky and spectacular views of the surrounding land in every direction. A flexible floorplan ideal for extended family and visiting family and friends offering high ceilings, generous proportioned rooms, built-ins and a warm feeling of being home in every corner.

The land of century old gums and rolling pasture offers an easy maintenance way of life with abundant colour in bird attracting gardens, numerous entertaining areas and secret spaces for kids to explore. Alternatively, challenge yourself to become a master of the vines presiding over six hectares of established premium Shiraz and Chardonnay currently contracted to St Hallett Wines. Options for livestock abound and horse enthusiasts will appreciate the substantial existing equine facilities.

Live the dream at “Innisfree”…
