Great rural lifestyle with plenty of potential !
This is a beautiful and totally unique 38.5ha. (approx. 95 acres) property that offers excellent potential to settle into a fantastic rural lifestyle and take in its relaxing vistas of the gently rolling countryside that surrounds it. The property includes approximately 28 acres of vineyards that have the irrigation infrastructure in place, with approx. 7.5 acres of that currently producing good yields of quality Cabernet Sauvignon. Other varieties in the remaining vineyards that are temporarily non-producing are mainly Chardonnay, and a combined area of around 3 acres of Tempranillo, Durif and Nero d’ Avola. There is approx. 48 acres of prime grazing paddocks at the rear of the property and this provides excellent scope to make some hay and/or to look after some animals. There is the potential for the grazing component of the property to be increased to around 71 acres if the (currently) non-producing Chardonnay section of the vineyard were to be cleared. The owners are happy to include some items of their plant in with the sale.
The picturesque Tookayerta Creek runs across the property, and together with the nearby fully equipped bore, there is plenty of permanent water. A 29ML water licence will also be included in the sale of the property. There is also a small 'granny flat' that overlooks the permanent creek and this currently being used as a music room by the owner. Other uses could be a studio or even a kids retreat.
A broad range of native birds and animals also call this beautiful property home; in fact on the day of the property photo shoot a majestic Wedgetail Eagle followed the airborne drone that had ‘invaded’ its territory.
The property has a conservative yet functional solid besser brick 3 bedroom 1 bathroom circa 1950's house that has the original slate flooring in some areas and floorboards underneath the carpet. With a little TLC and some elbow grease this lovely original house could be reinstated to its original glory, reaping the rewards of having your own piece of local history. Alternatively, there are a number of potential building sites around the property (STC).
Adding character to the house is the nearby mature fruit orchard and chicken house & run.
Other improvements on the property include an original dairy building and various implement and workshop shedding at the entrance to the property. The majority of the fencing is in good condition.
Sure to be of equal appeal is that a school bus stops nearby, and that the shopping, services, schools, and attractions in Mount Compass and Victor Harbor are only around 15 and 30 minutes away by bitumen road (respectively), and the Adelaide CBD is around 60 minutes by car.
This property is pretty much a blank canvas and is just awaiting a personal touch to maximize its obvious potential.
