Property Highlights


Country living, 3 Bedroom 1960's home with 9 ft Ceilings, wooden floors, sash windows, large kitchen and shedding. Great opportunity to divide off the house onto a torrens title and subdivide the back into a small community setting of approx 10-11 lots plus the house subject to council approval , flat land, water and power available with a country back drop.

What a great opportunity to create something quite unique, in the lovely country town of Lobethal.

Lobethal is a pleasant village in the Adelaide Hills. It was established in the early 1850s by Prussian Lutheran migrants. Today it is surrounded by orchards of apples and pears; vineyards and cellar doors; and is known for its artistic community and its pleasant bushland walks.

Things to See and Do

  • Lutheran Church Complex and Zum Weinberg Christi
  • The Lobethal Lutheran complex is located in the town's main street. It includes:
  • the first Lutheran Seminary in Australia (a small pug wall construction) which was built in 1842,
  • the oldest original Lutheran Church which was built between 1843-1845 with bricks which were fired in a nearby kiln and carried by women in bags and aprons on their way to Sunday worship. "During the week, after work, the men of the town built the church. It is likely that local brewer, FW Kleinschmidt, was head builder. Finished and dedicated in 1845, Zum Weinberg Christi, or St John's, was the first permanent Lutheran Church built in Australia."
  • the Lobethal Archives and Historical Museum which is open on weekends and contains information about the lives of the early German settlers. Located within the grounds are a number of interesting and historic graves. For details of opening times and tours contact (08) 8389 6996.

Lobethal Sculpture

Located at Mill Square, at the intersection of Woodside Road, Main Street and Lobethal Road, the sculpture, titled Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter ... is by Korean sculptor, Hwang Seung-Woo, is made from marble from Paris Creek in South Australia, and won the People's Choice Award in the 2012 Adelaide Hills International Sculpture Symposium. For more information check out http://hillssculpturetrail.com.au/spring-summer-fall-winter-and which notes: "Hwang made an important connection with the people of the Lobethal community and was mindful of their history as the home of the Onkaparinga Woollen Mills. For this piece Hwang chose to portray blankets and textiles."
