‘Willashdan' vineyard is an absolutely stunning property on 11.3Ha (approx 28 acres) at the base of the Willunga foothills which offers an absolutely beautiful ‘rural’ lifestyle, as well as a substantial income from the 24 acres (approximately) of professionally established vineyard. The property is gently sloping in nature yet it is sufficiently elevated to offer the most fantastic coastal and rural views, from Mount Lofty in the North to Myponga Beach in the Southwest and on a clear day across the gulf as far as Port Giles on the Yorke Peninsula. It’s no real matter if managing a vineyard is not one of your immediate fortes, because there is an abundance of highly experienced contractors in the region to assist where necessary, still enabling a good after-cost income.
The vineyard was planted in 2001 and has a consistent history of consistently producing good yields of A & B Grade fruit. The vineyard comprises approximately 18 acres of Shiraz and approximately 6 acres of Mourvedre, and is irrigated through fertigation with 15ML of reclaimed water. The husband and wife owners have handled most of the vineyard management tasks; however there is scope to contract out several of those tasks if a less hands-on lifestyle is preferable, e.g. pruning, fertigation, spraying, etc.
It has a delightful 1970’s timber frame 4 bedroom residence with excellent indoor living spaces including living/meals room, family room and an enclosed porch/sunroom; all taking advantage of the glorious views on offer. It comes with an updated open plan kitchen with adjoining meals/living room, complete with combustion heater and r/c split system air conditioner. A traditional bathroom, laundry, separate toilet, large paved outdoor entertainment area and double carport complete a spacious and most comfortable family residence.
Other quality improvements include 227,000Lt recycled water irrigation tank and two exceptional sheds measuring 24m x 9m and 9.2m x 9.4m, both with excellent clearance height, concrete floor, power and lighting.
As additional opportunity potential, the current owners have set aside a prime building envelope with glorious coastal views for the new owners to potentially build a new residence and convert the existing residence into a self hosted B&B facility. This development, subject to all the necessary approvals, would offer another income stream.
This is a must-see property, so please book an inspection with Ross Coleman.
