295 Schuller Rd, Blewitt Springs will have you enjoying your own wine in no time.

SET among 45 year-old Grenache vines, a Blewitt Springs home offers a sought-after lifestyle in the heart of McLaren Vale.
Built in 2014, the Bennett Design home at 295 Schuller Rd, is set on 0.8ha of land – 0.32ha of which dedicated to dry grown bush Grenache and 0.12 to 15 year old Shiraz.
While the grapes are a key feature of the property, so too are the views from the architecturally designed home.

“When we decided to build the home, the architect asked us a simple question: ‘what views do we want?’,” the owner says.
“So I told him, I want it all.
“After that discussion, he essentially created a glass box with extensive views over McLaren Vale to the Willunga Hills, and ocean to the Starfish Windmill Farm near Cape Jervis.”

Spanning across 265.5 sqm of living space, the home comprises four bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a self-contained studio with built-in storage, a kitchenette and a bathroom.
The open-plan living space is light-filled with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, and also comprises of a large dining space which flows outside to a decked alfresco space.

A spacious family room, meanwhile, has a combustion heater and is carpeted throughout.
The kitchen is a highlight of the home with lime coloured features, a gas stove, a dishwasher and storage space with pantry.
Outside, there’s a custom built shed with power and a double carport, as well as a 187,000 litre rainwater tank.

“It’s a really great lifestyle home with easy access to the city,” the owner says.
“You can also make a small income from the grapes but, for us, the fun part was to make the wine ourselves and to share it with friends.
“However, the Grenache has previously been sold to Fox Creek Wines, but with the Shiraz, there’s just not enough of it.”

Selling agent Beth Strathford of Harcourts South Coast said the property, which was launched to the market just one week ago, was already attracting strong interest from buyers.
It has a price guide of $1.4 million with offers sought by Wednesday, October 31 at noon.

“I’ve been told the Grenache in particular is quite sought after and has been drawing in buyers,” she said.
“But the area itself is also quite popular as Blewitt Springs is quite tightly held. So much so, that there’s not much that comes to the market.

“In terms of interest, we’ve already had a good mixture of buyers and feedback has been overwhelming.
“At the first open we had a couple renting in the area looking for something to buy, another couple form McLaren Vale looking to downsize, and a third couple from Brighton wanting a lifestyle change.”
