‘Jura House’ was completed on October 11th 2008 after the land was purchased by the Campbell family in May 2006.
Designed by Angus Campbell, the vision for ‘Jura House’ had to be appealing, graceful and fitting. A ‘less is more’ approach was made to ensure the house and surroundings not only complemented the area but also looked at home within its Adelaide Hills environment.
Strategically positioned to overlook the 61 Acre holding, ‘Jura House’ has expansive views across the Onkaparinga Valley to the Mt Lofty Ranges and Iconic Towers. In fact, when dining at Pike & Joyce Lenswood or site seeing from the Mt Lofty Summit you can see ‘Jura House’ quite clearly.
Those familiar with Scottish history and heritage would know all about the murderous clashes between the Campbell and MacDonald Clans at ‘The Isle of Jura’. Interestingly there are often mixed emotions when true Scots learn that Angus Campbell was born of a MacDonald and sired by a Campbell from these very clans. It is for this reason that a family tree was chosen as the symbol to best represent ‘Jura House’, a symbol of strength and a tribute to our fallen ancestors.
“In the eyes of history let it be known that both clans have now come the full circle and all are welcome at this highland haven”.
