'Fahrmann's Barn' c1850. Truly a 'once in a lifetime' property

Believed to originally have been built as a school house for the local community by Carl Fahrmann, the barn was later utilised to store produce, locally grown at Beerenberg Farm.

In the last 50years, the barn has been converted into a residence, where the once deep set foundations are now above ground offering the head height to transform a barn into a home. You can still run your fingers across the chisel marks made all those years ago yet it’s bright and spacious rooms are simply delightful. There’s a sense of privilege to walk through its spaces.

And now, after more than 35years, a truly special gift it is to see such a property on the market. This is no replica, mass produced or ordinary property. This is a one of a kind, one which has unlimited potential to make your own. Could this be the next best wedding venue in the Adelaide Hills? Income earning B&B? Or continue to keep it as a private sanctuary for you and your family.

The huge open fireplace centred within the sunken living room creates a romantic mood and the large country kitchen will feed your culinary senses with 5 burner gas cooktop and wall mounted double ovens surrounded by glorious garden views.

All 3 bedrooms, with brand new carpets are very generous in size, two being situated upstairs with a study room that will surely inspire any budding author or artist. Views are captured from every French opening double window and the only sounds to be heard are those of wildlife, ‘moo’s’ of neighbouring cows and the call of nearby horses.

The 500m driveway starts with solid timber entrance gates, leading around the huge dam home to many duck families, journeying under an arbour of plane trees and open paddock spaces to the home site.

Soak up the sun in the Entertaining area and admire the views to Mt Lofty. With bore, dam and rainwater storage, 2 sheds, undercover parking and so much character, it is a must see to appreciate.

For the horse enthusiasts, this property directly adjoins Oakside Park Stud and is a short ride to Darby Lodge Equestrian Centre.

Fahrmann's Barn. The opportunity is now to acquire what could be further developed (stcc) into the most magnificent property in the Adelaide Hills. The possibilities are endless.
