OPEN FOR INSPECTION - SUNDAY 16TH DECEMBER 12 NOON - 2 PM
Serenely nestled on a private waterfront overlooking peaceful Pelican Lagoon, this architecturally designed limestone home offers a unique lifestyle.
The seclusion and natural beauty of the location, is shared with an abundance of wildlife and bird life. Spanning approximately 20 acres, the nature lovers' property gently undulates toward the protected waters of Pelican Lagoon, making the perfect location for an environmentally friendly home.
Blending raw and textured Kangaroo Island stone with architectural design, the owners' vision of the home was to blend with the landscape, and as such they have succeeded. The stone was cut from this very property.
Internally , the home offers spacious, open plan living, with high raked ceilings. The high quality JAG kitchen is equipped with a large amount of bench space & solid granite bench tops. A butler's style pantry adjacent to the kitchen allows for additional work space, storage and full size freezer. A kitchen would not be complete these days unless there is space for a coffee machine, don't be concerned, a full sized commercial coffee machine is on hand, ready & plumbed in!
There are 3 double bedrooms and a study. The master bedroom enjoys a water view at the front of the home, and has private access to a full sized en-suite.
Once inside you can feel the structural density, evidenced by the 400 mm thick walls, held silent by blackbutt flooring over concrete slab & heavy weight glass windows and doors. South facing clerestory windows allow additional light and cross ventilation. No expense has been spared.
Aspected north, the attention to design detail has incorporated 'passive solar', minimizing living costs and maximizing the use of the sun not only for winter warming, but for electricity generation by way of solar panels & battery storage, enabling full off grid power. A backup generator and wind turbine ensure power access is consistent.
A slow combustion fire warms the large open area comfortably in winter and a gas boosted solar hot water system provides sufficient hot water all year round.
Externally, pavers surround the home, including the outdoor courtyard, which is a pleasant space to entertain and enjoy a wine or BBQ.
A large 12m x 6m shed with concrete floor has the ability to store large vehicles and or boats, and a fully enclosed orchard & vegetable garden provides home grown produce.
Water is captured on site and stored in 4 tanks, a total holding capacity of 125 kl.
Clearly an exceptional living experience and a limited opportunity due to the zoning of the area. Inspection will certainly impress!
The Kangaroo Island Development plan zoning allows for 'Tourism Development' within the 'Coastal Conservation' zone, in which this property sits. Great opportunity exists to explore further tourism potential (subject to consent) on other areas of this property's 20 acres. There are numerous other sites that could offer a unique tourism experience, and yet still be unseen from the existing home.
Ratcliff Track is centrally located approximately 20 kms from Penneshaw, near to American River, approximately 5 kms from Pennington Bay and 40 kms from Kingscote.
The property is offered for sale by Expression of Interest, closing 4pm Monday 21st January 2019 (unless sold prior).
