As a locality Bethany has always had a magical allure within the Barossa Valley. As the oldest settlement in the area it is really the birthplace of the Barossan food and wine culture that has earned a premium reputation on the world stage.

A tightly-held vicinity where land does not often change hands, the lineage of family succession remains evident in some of the neighbouring properties. The past is not to be forgotten here, nor are the endeavours of those who forged the way for others to embrace this new land and thrive.

This is a remarkable opportunity to acquire a substantial land holding at Bethany and become custodians of the heritage associated with this site. The possibilities for tourism development, in particular wine tourism and accommodation, are exciting. Truly unique experiences can be created and offered here, destined to attract both local and international visitors.

Proximity to the capital city of Adelaide, just over an hour’s drive from the Adelaide Airport, is another clear advantage of this locality.

THE HOMESTEAD
Has been built around the original homestead, retaining the historical appeal of the property and reflecting the origins of settlement. Emphasis has been given to the importance of this place in the history of the Barossa Valley.

The original homestead was built to overlook Tanunda Creek, offering views and easy access to water. The cellar was dug out into the side of the gently sloping incline, providing natural insulation and cooling.

The homestead currently offers four to five bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a lounge room, an updated timber country kitchen and a huge open-space living/dining area with spiral staircase leading to a loft that overlooks the lower level. A series of French doors open from the central living/dining area on to the verandah, allowing access to the inviting lawn and stunning views outside.

THE IMPLEMENT SHED
• Built to house equipment when the property operated a working winery but the intention was that it could also be utilised as a Function Centre, with the Tanunda Creek as a backdrop.
• Large gum tree supports have been used instead of sawn timber for visual authenticity.
• There are 4 x front access doors, two bays deep (eight-bay shed), cement floor and power.

THE CELLARS
• The cellars were created to provide both wine storage and entertaining space and hold an even 22° year round without air-conditioning.
• The new-build (under the studio) was purpose built to be utilised as tasting rooms as well as wine storage. It was intended as a place to hold wine dinners and special events.

THE STUDIO/WINERY SHED
• Originally built for use as a winery, divided into six large bays for vehicles, equipment and wine storage.

THE REAR ALLOTMENT (BEHIND TANUNDA CREEK)
• Zoned as residential. Suited for the development of tourism accommodation subject to council consents
• Currently planted to some Shiraz and a small orchard
• There is a right of way from Basedow Road to this land, between Booth Transport and Chateau Tanunda
