We are thrilled to announce the completion of restoration works to the beautiful Newenham cottage which is now operating as our Sales and Information Centre and community kitchen space.
The project has been a 12-month labour of love to preserve and restore one of Newenham’s original stone cottages and, in doing so, create a welcoming Sales and Information Centre with community kitchen. Over the past year our team of tradespeople have painstakingly repaired just about every square inch of the cottage from the ground up, to return this piece of history to its original glory and give it a new lease on life.
Our vision was to create a space that reflects the Newenham ethos – a beautiful and timeless, quality design and construction in-keeping with the Adelaide Hills landscape. A community space that works beautifully not just as an inviting sales and information space, but also for a range of future community activities and events.
We wanted to do something special that so few developments do. Something that would show what Newenham stands for and how it is different to the typical urban developments, while ensuring we retain the history and create a country living feel in one of the most picturesque locations in the Adelaide Hills.
It was quite a vision, and one that wouldn’t have been possible without the guidance and support of the talented teams at Studio Gram and Studio Band. Between them they helped bring this vision to life with stunning design, detail, furniture and nuances to make this space a truly special place within Newenham.
We knew from the beginning that the Newenham cottage was perfectly suited for the Sales and Information Centre, not only because of the location in the masterplan and character of the building, but because of the neighbouring infrastructure, including an old barn and garage, which have also been included in the Newenham restoration project, and restored to their original glory over this past year.
These three buildings take in the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and with an exciting events program planned (including the recent Telethon Family Fun Day) this beautiful space has the potential to become a destination for Adelaide Hills’ community events and key meeting place for Newenham residents in 2017 and beyond.
But don’t just take our word for it. The Sales and Information Centre is open 12 – 5 daily, so come and visit us and have a look around this beautiful building.
