The space
Heartwood is a truly unique property, offering guests a mix of historical charm and contemporary comfort. The original 1850's "Tiersman's" dwelling with its sapling and shingle roof has been fully restored and extended by renowned Architect Pauline Hurren. A large Conservatory links the old with the new, providing an amazing, light-filled space overlooking the pool and gardens. This is the ideal retreat for a group of friends or large family, as Heartwood has been designed with several living zones, including a flexible home theatre/retreat with sofa bed to accommodate another couple. In the garden, a separate self-contained Studio with sofa bed provides an additional space. The house is set back from the road with lovely outlooks over the garden and valley beyond, making it a peaceful and tranquil spot for a relaxing holiday. Children and pets are most welcome and we have provided a fenced, sheltered dog run accessed from the laundry.
The property and it's architectural improvements were recently featured in the national newspaper .

Guest access
Heartwood is a stand-alone house let out as a whole entity, with full guest access to the entire property, including separate Studio, games room and (non-heated ) swimming pool. It can be rented by one couple or up to 5 couples travelling together as a maximum. Additional charges apply to each extra guest.

Other things to note
Please note the swimming pool isn't heated . There may still be a chill but Dec to April are normal swimming times . ( Children might like to bring rashies ) .

The property is set down below the street and there is a down ramp and then a significant number of steps to the main cottage entry . the down ramp continues around the side of the house to the ground floor . Access is possible this way via the laundry or pool area with only a few steps . There are bedrooms on ground floor with two steps to the living area.


Please note that the initial quote via the AirBB system is "couples" - based .
Hence if it's a 6 person enquiry , the quote is effectively for 3 Queen beds. If in effect your party is 6 singles , requiring 6 beds, our overheads double and we reserve the right to request extra funds to offset this gap . We try to be reasonable in this request .

Location

Stirling, South Australia, Australia

Stirling is a wonderful spot to be based when visiting South Australia. It is only 20 minutes to the centre of Adelaide, yet it has retained a village atmosphere. Heartwood is a couple of km from the main street with its many shops, cafes and restaurants and award-winning hotel. Only metres down the road is the famous Sticky Rice Cooking School which offers sensational classes with renowned Australian chefs. Our cottage is the ideal location for a group of friends to stay for a couple of nights to take in a class. There is a lovely park and playground in Stirling and further afield at Mt Lofty, the renowned Cleland Wildlife Park where visitors can interact with native animals. The Mt Lofty wine region is extensive with many Cellar doors now including restaurants for a perfect lazy lunch. Only one hour away is the McLaren Vale wine district, where the vines meet the sea on the Fleurieu Peninsula, or take a day trip north to the famous Barossa Valley. Otherwise, just laze in the conservatory or take a dip in the pool if all you need is a secluded, peaceful retreat!
