Dreaming of a country escape, but still need to be close to the city for work? This might just be the perfect compromise.
Located just 20 minutes from the CBD in serene Teringie, the five-bedroom home, at 317 Old Norton Summit Rd, is ready for new owners to enjoy the renovated cottage.
Ouwens Casserly Real Estate agent Mark Bressington said the property had been overwhelmingly popular as soon as it was listed on realestate.com.au
“We’ve had over 100 inquiries on the property, last weekend’s open we had 130 people there easily,” he said.
“We had an open on Monday and had about 20 groups through, which is huge for a weekday.
“They all loved it, it feels like it’s in the country and it’s really well maintained, the vendors have kept the character of the home.”
Originally built in 1955 the character home, set on a spacious 1700sqm block, was slowly renovated by the vendors to include all the modern comforts.
“The vendors bought it three years ago and they just finished the kitchen and had to sell,” Mr Bressington said.
“It’s a hard goodbye, they love the property.”

So — who wants a house with a workshop?
The home features an unusual glass conservatory, used as a sitting room, which can be completely opened up to enjoy the scenery on an evening.
Mr Bressington said the property had a beautiful serene feeling, which potential buyers had noted during last weekend’s open.
“Everyone just walks in and says ‘wow it’s breathtaking’, it just feels warm and welcoming,” he said.
“It’s not clinical, it’s very family friendly and you could just see yourself living there.”
Nestled in the rugged landscape, Mr Bressington said the property had all the perks of country living while still remaining convenient for amenities and schools.
“You feel like you’re in the country, but you’re basically two minutes from Magill Primary and all the restaurants and cafes,” he said.
“You’re ten minutes from the city and around the corner from The Parade, you’re basically living in suburbia but it’s just beautiful.”
The home features a large master suite, with three sets of french doors to the veranda and gardens, plus a walk-in robe and ensuite. The remaining three bedrooms also have french door access outside, with an optional fifth bedroom on the mezzanine accessed by a spiral staircase.
The property has a fire protection system on the roof, a fire hose and pump, plus a 22,000 gallon rainwater tank and a 1,000 gallon tank opposite the workshop. It also features reverse cycle airconditioning and a heritage slow combustion heater.
The property has a price guide of $649,000 to $723,000. Offers closing by Monday, March 4 at 5pm.
