Spectacular coastal retreat on Kangaroo Island …
Approximately 100 acres of spectacular coastal land on the North Coast of Kangaroo Island. Comprising an off-grid cottage surrounded by open, fenced paddocks and sited just 75 meters (or so) from the most amazing, rugged, and magnificent seafront.
A unique property held in the same family for more than 40 years, this is a rare opportunity to own something truly special. This property has provided many, many family memories for three generations. Long days spent enjoying the complete tranquillity and serenity. Fishing, walking, swimming, boating. Children exploring the rock pools, jumping from rock to rock, never getting bored. Many a crayfish has been shared and many a bottle of red has been enjoyed in front of the roaring open fireplace.
Imagine stepping outside and taking a stroll along approximately 1km of your own coastal land. White cliffs dotted with wildflowers and Blue Wrens playfully dancing around you as you stroll. Pick out your favourite rock and enjoy a glass of wine watching the sunset over the ocean as the waves crash in. Colonies of seals play in family groups in the rock pools all along this stretch. Watch them play in the surf and sun themselves on the rocks. Dolphins swim past regularly and there’s even the odd whale to be watched! An old shipwreck in also located off the rocks here. Watch the sunset over the ocean and fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing – relax and unwind.
An abundance of wildlife – as you would expect on wonderful Kangaroo Island – koalas, echidnas, wallabies, seabirds and others, possums which come to the windows for treats.
Some unexpected treasures like the century old Mulberry tree and a shearing shed which is said to be the oldest on the island. Discover the rock formation on the hill overlooking the ocean, said to be an ancient aboriginal site where tools were made from the rock and can still be found today.
A bushland section with a winter creek leads down the side of the property to the sea and there are many secret spots to be explored, including a special fishing hole.
Most of the land is open, fenced paddocks and there are two small dams.
The cottage, built in the 1980’s has the charm of yesteryear with open fire, three bedrooms, living area, kitchen, and bathroom. Electricity is via solar power to a battery with wind generated back up power. Water is supplied via rainwater. Gas hot water and fridge. Septic tank.
35 mins from Kingscote and Parndana on the more sheltered North coast of KI, this is a rare gem. Make it yours!
