Living in the Adelaide Hills presents a comfortable lifestyle for many South Australians. The natural landscape and solitude provide an attractive option for people wanting to escape the frenetic pace of city living.
With a history dating back to 1888, Stirling’s residents are blessed with thriving natural surroundings and many beautiful heritage homes. Although originally a township reliant on apple growing, Stirling soon became a sought-after address for wealthy Englishmen. Farming took a backseat as soon as the benefits of a leafy township were realised and it has since experienced constant growth. Stirling currently enjoys a population of over 2,000 people in the area.
If you are looking to join them and buy a home here, Detail Building Inspections can help you conduct your due diligence in a property’s condition and minimise repair costs down the track.
Stirling is full of deciduous trees, providing a welcome respite in the scorching heat of the Adelaide summer. However, the varying climate of South Australia means that there is plenty of rain and dew all year round. Due to the extensive tree cover, any water that finds its way into the home can have trouble drying out. Unfortunately, Termites just love damp timber; this is what they feed on! If they discover a supply in a home’s walls, roof, or floor, they will munch on it for as long as their heart desires.
Termites can cause thousands of dollars of damage and compromise the integrity of the house itself. However, a pre-purchase pest inspection will identify conditions that are conducive to these nasty little critters doing damage before they diminish the property’s value. If they are already there, our building inspection report will provide you with a detailed understanding of what needs to be done to fix the problem.
Perhaps the most significant attraction of Stirling is the balance of tranquil home life and the ability for work to be left in the city centre. The 16km distance is enough for its residents to enjoy the isolation, but the freeway means the drive to the CBD is only 25 minutes. The expanses of land and historical wealth have resulted in many large homes being built here, making the area a perfect option for established families.
