Lot /4 Railway Parade, Kapunda
All Aboard ! House - Property ID: 822134
Attention all "Train Buffs", B & B Lifestyle seekers or those with the extended large family, this character building with its high lofty ceilings, English cedar timberwork and thick stone walls (designed by Edward Angas Hamilton, opened 1860, costing around £12,000) was the original Kapunda Railway Station and one of the first to be built outside of Adelaide. Today, unfortunately the trains do not come and this solid two storey building is utilised as a large family home. The history here is amazing and now you have a chance to play "Station Master" and be the future custodian of this important piece of our National and State Heritage.
Approaching the property you are greeted by the imposing colonial façade and a huge tree-lined forecourt (ideal for plenty of car parking).
Entry is through the formal entrance hall and leads to one of the many living areas being a 6m x 6m lounge room with open fire place and French doors out to the canopy covered platform. The adjoining well equipped kitchen with dishwasher and standard & overhead cupboards services the separate casual dining room. Down the hall we have 2 adjoining bedrooms ( or bedroom + dressing room) a central formal dining room with access to the paved outdoor courtyard, then past the original colonial staircase to the family room with a split system air-conditioner along with French doors out onto the canopy covered platform, a large bedroom comes of this room.
From the family room you enter another hallway giving access to the laundry, separate toilet and large family bathroom.
Up the staircase to the 1st floor we have another large bedroom and another double room, all with split system air-conditioning along with a second bathroom and toilet.
Outside we have the previously mentioned paved courtyard and wide shady canopy covered platform, wrap around front verandah, cellar and workshop as well as 2 x tool sheds and 2 rainwater tanks, one plumbed in to the kitchen. Electrical wiring and plumbing have all been updated.
All of this and more positioned on a spacious 1.3 acre allotment within easy walking distance of Kapunda's well serviced main street. So if this sounds like just what you have been searching for (Choo Choo) it over with the powers to be and contact Steam Train Steve or Chugalong Charles from Professionals Kapunda to arrange your own private viewing and don't worry we won't railroad you into making a quick decision.
