About Elizabeth Raupach
I am a retired arts administrator and my husband manages Coriole, the family owned winery, which is 10 minutes drive away from our home at Sandalwood. We are pleased to be able to host guests in our converted shearing shed on our vineyard property. We love gardening and have orchards, vegetable gardens, ornamental gardens and a fledgling arboretum. Guests are welcome to explore the whole property, which is also home to some chooks, pigs and sheep (as well as kangaroos).
Elizabeth Raupach purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why Elizabeth Raupach chose The Range
We moved to Sandalwood in 2010 after living nearby at Coriole, the family winery, for many years. We love the peace and quiet of this secluded part of the world.
What makes this Cabin unique
The property has wonderful views from the hill, especially at sunset. We have large landscaped gardens around our own house which is across the orchard paddock from the shearing shed. The 12 acres of vines grow a number of warmer climate varieties (sangiovese, prosecco, barbera, picpoul and nero d'avola.) The atmospheric disused shearing shed was fun to convert - and it has been a great way to be able to share this beautiful region with our guests. We opened the Sandalwood Shearing Shed in 2016. Feedback from guests has been very positive. Guests have told us that they love the wood burning heater in winter, sitting on the deck at dusk, the peace and quiet, the morning birdsongs and the hillside walks to watch the sunset ..... as well as the proximity to wineries and restaurants.

Shearing shed country holiday
Fantastic opportunity to enjoy the countryside and relax. Property is in a great location and has everything you need. It was very clean and tidy and had a really comfortable feel about it. Walking into the original shearing shed immediately takes your mind away from city life. A great holiday.
Thanks, I'm so glad you found the Shearing Shed comfortable and relaxing in the chilly winter weather.
Great Winter Retreat!
We stayed here in June when the weather outside was freezing but inside was nice and cosy. The fireplace was the best and really made the stay feel homely. The property is gorgeous with beautiful vines and rolling hills with sheep roaming around. I loved this place and would definitely recommend.

The Sandalwood Shearing Shed is right in the heart of the Fleurieu Peninsula. There are numerous well known wineries with cellar doors and restaurants to visit in this region.
The nearby beaches (including Port Willunga and Maslin Beach) are famous for their geological interest and beautiful aspect.
The McLaren Vale township is a 10 minute drive away and it has supermarkets, butchers, bakers, banking facilities and doctors surgeries.
The famous Willunga farmer's market is open on Saturday mornings.
