WHITE’S MILL ROW COTTAGES
SOLD AT AUCTION
After being in the same family for nearly 69 years as a holiday cottage for family and guests, here is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in an enticing piece of Willunga history by becoming the next owner of heritage-listed ‘White’s Mill Row Cottages’.
White’s Mill Row Cottages were built circa 1848 by Samuel White. It is a traditional row form of cottages that were constructed to accommodate workers from the flour mill & slate quarry in the Willunga area and currently used as a single residence. It is similar in form and scale to those built in Burra for the miners in the same era.
The cottage is situated on a 798m2 allotment with mains power and water connected. The thick stone walled building with locally quarried slate floors throughout, consists of 3 bedrooms, a storeroom and a large living area with an adjoining kitchen. A separate ‘modern-day’ laundry/bathroom building is joined to the cottage by a verandah. It has 3 original open fireplaces that keep the living areas warm during winter and complete the historical ambiance of this very functional cottage.
This property will appeal to anyone who is looking for a piece of history with plenty of ‘old-world’ charm that can serve as a family weekender, &/or a historical retreat for tourists (STCC). What is sure to be of equal appeal is the fact that it’s only a short drive to the shopping, schools, services and attractions in Willunga, McLaren Vale and Aldinga Beach, and only an approximate 60 minutes to the Adelaide CBD via the Southern Express Way.
