Luck could well be on the cards for the new buyers of a unique Macclesfield property which is believed to have been blessed with crystals.
At the very least it’s in the street name, with the 1996-built property located at 30 Luck St.
Luck was certainly on the cards for vendors Adina Pegg and Sam Pretty when they purchased the property in 2017.
The pair instantly fell in love with the two-storey, three-bedroom home on a 2071sqm and have thoroughly enjoyed living there.
“We’d been looking for a while but couldn’t find anything and as soon as we walked into this house, it just had this incredible feeling,” Ms Pegg says.
“It ticked all the boxes. It was just all the rustic features of the place.”
Ms Pegg says the home was built using recycled, reclaimed and salvaged materials, including planks of wood from shearing sheds in Port Adelaide, and was designed with sustainability in mind. It also has a 20,000L rainwater tank, solar panels, a winter creek, two garden sheds, a wood shed, various fruit trees, a slow-combustion heater and a split-system airconditioner.
Ms Pegg says there’s an undeniable “magic” and “peaceful” feeling to the home.
“We were lucky to chat to the previous owners of the place and they told us stories about how the original builder, when he put the stumps in the ground outside, he blessed each one with a crystal,” she says.
“And that The Book of Love is in the wall, and honestly everyone who walks into the house falls in love with it.”
The lower level comprises two large bedrooms, a laundry, an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, and a bathroom, which is reminiscent of a seriously stylish tin shed.
Upstairs is an oversized, loft-style master bedrooms with a private balcony.
The home’s decor is a perfect blend of contemporary and rustic styling, with exposed wooden beams, barn doors, timber ceilings, and a country-style kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a polished concrete benchtop. Even the pet dog has stylish living quarters – it sleeps in a kennel converted from a wine barrel.
“The previous owners converted the property into what it is today, they bought it as a shell from the original owner, but we added the finishing touches,” Ms Pegg says.
The property has been the ultimate entertainer, both inside and out, and the garden the perfect place to potter about, says Ms Pegg.
“I love being out in the garden and I feel like it must be magic soil because I’m always finding vegetables that I didn’t plant, growing,” she says.
Moving on to new adventures, Ms Pegg says she’ll miss the views and tranquillity the most.
“We’ve got an old cottage next door and I just love to look out at the views and sometimes we see the neighbour’s horse and dogs that we go and have a play with,” she says.
“The other day a koala ran past the large windows outside the lounge. There’s heaps of wildlife.”
Ms Pegg says the property is located about an hour’s drive from the city, and the daily commute is one she enjoys.
“It’s worth it – I put on a podcast and just enjoy the drive,” she says.
“And as soon as you get home, you walk in, and you forget about all the day’s stresses.”
The property is on the market with Harcourts Adelaide Hills and has a price guide of $399,000.
