One of the most exceptional properties in Stirling offers the ultimate in beauty and privacy with a picturesque lily pond to add to the magnificent surroundings. Clean crisp air, blue skies and a setting bathed in natural sunlight with graciously tall trees, high canopies, wide garden beds, and a cool climate garden, Lower St Vigeans will be enjoyed as much by the new owners as have custodians in past years dating back to the 1870s.

This low maintenance landholding of just under 2 acres in one of Stirling’s prettiest and tightly held locations ~ Laurel Road, has a quaint cottage surrounded by gardens in an Estate originally designed, planned and established by Sir Edward Charles Stirling which have been added to and enhanced over the years. Mature trees including one of the oldest flowering cherries, firs, oaks, beeches, maples & palms plus a diverse selection of plants ~ a green oasis resplendent with a mosaic of colour ~ & ancient rare rhododendrons, huge hydrangeas, camelias, and azaleas. Towering above, with a height of 55 metres (approx.) is a spectacular Sequoia ~ famously renowned as the tallest tree in South Australia!

Walking within this enchanting garden with a myriad of newly saw dusted clear pathways amid thousands of original and new plantings, there is plenty of shade, relaxation and a beautiful lawned area with power ~ perfect for garden parties and private weddings which have taken place over the years. An extensive irrigation system throughout the gardens takes full advantage of a new good quality bore with pump which was replaced in 2019. The gardens whilst exotic, beautiful and extensive are truly low maintenance ~ easily managed with monthly attendance by a gardener retained for many years and happy to remain with the property on-going.

The freshly painted sun-drenched cottage with superb lily pond outlook ~ framed by a boardwalk and deck is a picture-perfect image of tranquillity and beauty and captures the essence that is what a hills lifestyle is all about and often hard to find. The 2-bedroom home with polished floorboards, large picture windows, split system reverse cycle air conditioner and a wood heater add homely ambience to the private country setting. There is a lower level to the home ~ great for cellar use and extra storage ~ plus a separate studio with power ~ ideal as a home office or large artist/yoga studio retreat. There is potential for renovation, extension or rebuilding if desired (subject to consents).

Lower St Vigeans ~ a garden estate just a short stroll to the popular Village of beautiful Stirling: an invaluable rare offering rich in history & natural botanic beauty in one of Adelaide’s premier hills destinations only 20 minutes (approx.) to Adelaide CBD.
