Built in 1881 in historical Church Hill, with modern amenities, the Courthouse enjoys a central location in Gawler and offers a unique, independent, self-contained accommodation option, close to the Barossa Valley. We are excited to be able to offer this experience and to share such a wonderful, majestic building.
Gawler is a historical town at the gateway to the Barossa Valley, and the precinct of Church Hill where the Courthouse sits is heritage listed. Cowan street is a quiet, wide, Jacaranda-tree-lined avenue close to shops, restaurants, sporting facilities and sites of interest on the Heritage trail. Located 40 km from Adelaide CBD, the Courthouse is 250 metres from the train station. Built in 1881, it is being meticulously converted to a residence. The studio apartment which was once the entrance, witness waiting room and bathrooms is available to experience now and the main courtroom and judge's chambers will be available later this year.
Gawler has many parklands and wonderful walking trails along its three rivers. It is less than an hours drive to the Clare Valley, 40 minutes to the beach or city and 20 minutes to the Barossa Valley.
The studio apartment is self-contained with a locked door between the guest quarters and the main residence. Guests have their own access to the studio with their own front door and entrance foyer with table and chairs, separate to the owner's residence. The driveway offers off-street parking for one guest, with street parking also available.
Interaction with guests
I am available via phone and live on site in the adjoining residence, but the studio is completely self-contained so we may not meet unless you request something in particular. My son and I live quietly and are available for recommendations, whilst respectful of privacy. We enjoy travel and use Air BnB worldwide.
Other things to note
We have three supermarkets within a 250 metre walk which open until 9pm weekdays and 5pm on weekends, but if you require any supplies upon arrival, please let me know. Basic continental breakfast supplies are provided, however if you require supplies for a cooked breakfast, please contact me in advance to purchase for you and we can negotiate payment on arrival separate to accommodation rate. Also, if you have any preferred bedding options I will endeavor to satisfy these given adequate prior notice. Early check in or late check out accommodated upon request whenever possible.
