The Tudor, Aldgate

This location is a stunning European manor. A Tudor/fachwerkhaus in the Adelaide Hills, SA that looks to have come straight from a fairytale.

Like something from The Secret Garden, this magical three story picture-perfect storybook home with its distinctive red hay doors, boasts two magnificent courtyards.  One a medieval bricked, stunning cobblestones private grotto, with twisted stairs that lead up to the lanterned driveway and a large lily filled pond. The other, an immaculately paved courtyard lined with a glorious white washed and ivy covered creek wall which spans the length of the house and conceals a fairy garden, creek and another half an acre of unkempt forest with tall pine trees.  A large lawned area leads down to an active creek with twisted willows and croaking frogs.

The spacious bottom floor is encased in huge French doors and polished spotted gum floorboards which lead directly out to both courtyards. This light filled room contains a comfortable lounge area, bare brick walls, white lime-washed beams and contemporary kitchenette with a wood stove. A piano sits proudly next to the big red door that leads to the beautiful front courtyard.

In a seperate bedroom a queen bed sits privately behind an awesome barn door and looks out on the tranquil pond. On the other side of the space, a beautiful bathroom with deep sinking tub and two person shower sits below a huge plate glass window. A big double shower and laundry space completes the bathroom.

Aldgate is 21km South-East of Adelaide city centre.
