Australia Real Estate 1856 Bluestone House - 10 Melory Crescent, Magill, SA 5072
Toop & Toop

Located at 10 Melory Crescent, Magill, the Woodforde House has a rich history dating back to 1856, when William Uren decided to build it on the foothills of Australia. Since then, the home has only been owned by two families: the Urens, who then passed it down to the Nightingales through marriage.

The present owner, who purchased the five-bedroom, two-bath home in 1977, is the artist behind the characters seen in the listing photos and has great memories of family parties throughout the years—it’s clear he knows how to have a good time with his fun sense of humor!

And if the unique décor has sparked your interest, you’ll love the home’s additional features, like its tiny chapel with ruby red glass and matching church windows. There’s also a viewing deck on the second floor with a view of the sea. If that view isn't your moment of zen for the day, check out the creek nearby—it'll make you feel like you're in the deep country.
