Stunning Home & Land on the Murray River!
Extremely rare opportunity to buy a fabulous property in this private, secluded and gorgeous location on the Murray River
On offer is 37.5 acres of land, including a lovely 3 bedroom home, extensive gardens, an orchard, a veggie garden, your own lagoon plus jetty, an ‘island’ full of wildlife which leads to almost 300m of river frontage, and so much more!
This is an amazing property with so many hidden gems, the lagoon and river access are incredibly valuable these days but the whole property offers an incredible array of potential whether it be for permanent living, a holiday home or an idyllic retirement!
The location: situated in Sunnydale, about 10 minutes’ drive from Murraylands Rd, 30 minutes’ drive from Swan Reach, and within easy reach of Mannum, The Barossa and an hour and a half drive from Adelaide
Land size: 37.5 acres of land in total with the 3 bedroom home by the road (which has postal delivery and school bus service). Extensive gardens alongside an orchard and veggie garden surround the property, leading down through gorgeous tree-lined paths to a large clearing which features plenty of shedding and a large double toilet and shower block (gas bottle powered hot water)
You have almost 8 acres of tree-studded land by the lagoon, with plenty of space for guests to camp with the added luxury of their own toilet/shower block and so much room to explore, play and enjoy
A short stroll from the house through the trees and you are at the picturesque lagoon, complete with your own jetty. Your section of lagoon covers over 4 acres and is a regular visiting spot for plenty of pelicans
The views are stunning with the Big Bend cliffs a bit further upstream; just imagine sitting on the jetty and relaxing with a drink as the sun sets on another gorgeous day!
Cross the lagoon and you get to your own spot of raised land, known as the ‘island’. This is another 25 acres of land which has a deceptively wide creek winding through from the lagoon to the river. There are plenty of tracks and clearances on this land along with all the local birds and wildlife
You have almost 300m of absolute river frontage, just perfect for casting a line or just watching the river life go by. Taking a boat from your jetty, you are just minutes away from emerging from your creek in to the Murray!
The house: Set amongst the trees is this lovely timber-framed home, with an extremely spacious living room leading out to the wide and deep front verandah. Plenty of natural light floods the room and you look out onto the beautiful manicured gardens
A good-sized kitchen, main bedroom with polished floor and garden views, 2nd and 3rd carpeted bedrooms, laundry, porch and family bathroom complete the indoor rooms. Another decked area to the rear leads out to the large private back garden, with plenty of tree shade and more delightful nooks and crannies
The front verandah has plenty of space for comfy seating, a large dining table and chairs, and also has a small spa bath and side access to another seating area alongside an outdoor open shower. A car port to the other side has ample space too
Gardens: An absolutely delightful mature garden with so many wonderful plants, bushes and trees, lovingly planted over the years. A dry creek, pond, lovely wooden pergola with seating, wooden arches, lawn and more flowers comprise this majestic and picturesque setting
The gardens are fully irrigated with plenty of pumps and back-up systems in place. There is also a domestic 500kl water allocation. Many sheds are dotted about providing ample storage, with tool, wood and general storage sheds
A large orchard with almost 40 various fruit trees will keep you in limes, tangellas, figs, crab apples, loganberries amongst others with another 20 olive trees also flourishing, whilst the enclosed veggie garden will keep the home produce flowing too
Utilities: Mains power, electric hot water system, enviro septic tank for the main house and a second tank for the outdoor housed shower/toilets. Water is provided by rainwater tanks for the home with lagoon water for the outdoor toilets and gardens
Ducted evaporative air-conditioning and a combustion wood burner will keep the temperature ideal all year round with ceiling fans and an insulated roof also helping. Land line phone, tv antenna and satellite dish
Summary: This is a delightful property, giving the opportunity for idyllic river lifestyle living. Just kicking back and relaxing on the verandah, watching the sun set on the cliffs from the jetty or just strolling through the gardens and enjoying the serenity, this is a truly stunning home
With your own jetty, your own ‘island’, the picturesque creek giving easy river access and the near 300m of absolute frontage, there’s plenty of river activity for everyone to enjoy, on your doorstep!
Eagles, owls, frogs, wild chickens, bats, frill-necked lizards and more along with the usual wombats, roos, echidnas and pelicans mean this is a paradise for the birds and wildlife let alone the lucky owners. This truly is an absolute gem
