Currently providing the ultimate Barossa base for a professional in the wine industry, the Smiths Cottage also moonlights as a BnB when the owner is away from The Barossa.
The cottage offers the best of all worlds… move in and live in style, or operate as a B&B… or both!
Without a doubt, you’ll fall in love.
While the complete history of the cottage has not been documented, it is likely that the original building was constructed in the mid 1800’s. All indicators point to the cottage being the home of the preacher – with the church across the road – who doubled as the local blacksmith! While the 2 bedroom cottage is original in layout, it has been extensively renovated and is exceptionally appointed with a contemporary feel.
The living space is across two levels providing a significant space to host guests – or to indulge in your own activities. The area is heated by either a romantic combustion heater, or a practical split system! Off the living space, the main bedroom exudes a resort ambiance with clean lines and a king size bed, while the second bedroom is intimate with original textured walls and a lovely outlook to the north garden.
Through the living space is the open plan kitchen – respecting the heritage of the cottage – but with contemporary appliances and featuring French doors that open to the north garden (which features an oh-so-productive lemon tree ensuring that it’s not too far to go to dress your gin and tonic!)
The bathroom has been renovated to ensure a practical but loveable space. Wall papered and well appointed the room provides the perfect bathroom/laundry combination. You’ll just have to experience it!
The garden is defined by the compass – North, South, East and West.
The north garden via the French doors from the kitchen is a focal point for produce… lemons, pears, a herb bath, and numerous wicking beds for seasonal vegetables. This supports a sustainable lifestyle – although you’ll need a few friends to help consume your bounty! It is also the perfect spot to soak up the sun in the shoulder seasons where you can enjoy breakfast, brunch or lunch.
To the east, the patio is set for entertaining with a covered dining area adjacent to the kitchen and an elevated platform with a fire pit for those cooler evenings… And then there’s the glamping tent! The tent has proved a hit with AirBnB guests increasing the capacity from 4 to 6 – but also providing a delightful escape for yoga practice or an afternoon nap!
The south provides a shaded lawn which is the perfect escape from the summer heat… or then again – you could always swing from the chair under the pear tree!
The west – the front of the cottage – is the ideal spot to watch the world go by – albeit at a slower pace than you may accustomed to. Watching the sunset from the verandah – with a drink in hand – is the true Barossa lifestyle
Additionally, there is covered off street parking and a shed for garden equipment
Located in the crown of the Barossa and just a short walk or drive from historical Angaston, you’ll fall in love with the Smiths Cottage and the lifestyle that it offers.
