Who says you can't mix business with pleasure! Not your average market garden with a family home. This state-of-the-art tomato farm and packing facility boasts what can only be described as a 'Palatial Mansion'. This imposing residence rises from the street to stop passers-by in their tracks as they are exposed to the WOW factor. This rural / urban suburb is just 25km from Adelaide. Room to move could well be an understatement. The bedrooms comprise five with two being Master, but all to be more than adequate in size. Either walk-in or built-in robes to all bedrooms and two...

bathrooms and two ensuites are complete with the best in fixtures and décor along with floor to ceiling tiles. The upstairs bathroom includes a large, elevated spa bath flanked by columns spells aristocracy in anyone's language. Upon entering this magnificent home, you are enveloped in a foyer, lounge and dining room that would make anyone's heart skip a beat, so could we expect more? Perhaps three more living areas partnered with three kitchens. No this is not a swank five-star hotel but a residence with class and opulence. As expected, the kitchens are fitted out perfectly with European appliances, granite benchtops and a walk-in pantry almost as big as the kitchen itself. Certainly, no expense spared with space to match. Floor tiles throughout and both ducted and split-system air conditioning maintains the comfort factor. The two large balconies allow you to look over the estate and open spaces. There is a double garage with automatic doors but a large carport as well maintaining undercover protection. A good variety of shopping centres are close-by along with a good selection of schools. Family activity can be had especially a day spent at St. Kilda beach with lots to see and do. Thoughtful thinking has a guests Powder Room just outside adjacent a large Entertainment / Karaoke Room. Yes, after a hard day picking and packing tomatoes it's time to let your hair down and grab the mike and belt out a number. An air-conditioned room with projector and screen along with Bose surround sound speakers, perhaps lay back and watch a movie might be a better option. Regardless, could it get any better than this? This is a rare opportunity to acquire not only a home of immense proportion and style, but a fully functioning market gardening facility on this scale and level of expertise doesn't come along every day.
