1.093 ha (2.7 acres) Overlooking and enjoying the benefits of, and access to, the lagoon is this bright and spacious home that includes large bedrooms and an updated kitchen, a 20’ x 20’ shed, a deck, verandah and more on land that enables many options of usability.
LAND: 1.093 ha (over 2.7 acres). Located just 5 minutes upstream from the centre of Mannum, this small acreage property offers expansive views over the lagoon to the river, as well as having direct access to the lagoon itself. From the roadside, a concrete driveway leads to the shed, whilst a stone edged, concrete footpath provides access to the home and front deck where the elevation provides the platform for the magnificent outlook. Alongside the home, an area has been created for the parking of several vehicles and could be easily adapted to a carport, if desired. Behind the home, a paved courtyard is bordered by a defining and uniquely appealing, rendered curved retaining wall divided by steps that lead you further into the property. Stone walls and lined garden beds support the tiered native gardens before the property extends to a section of land that has been established for Capers. These Caper plants were established for the research and development of the first commercial Caper plantation in Australia; a venture which went on to win multiple awards (including National Best Primary Producer (2012) and multiple SA Premier Food Awards). With a header tank positioned at the high point of the property, irrigation lines remain in place enabling this land to be utilised for either recreational or more involved chosen purposes.
RESIDENCE: Stepping inside the home from either the front deck or rear undercover area, you enter the very open living section which includes the updated kitchen with dishwasher, gas stove and a good amount of cupboard space. This bright and spacious area enjoys the cross ventilation breezes provided by both the river and hillside and is also climate controlled by a feature fireplace, a split system and wall unit air conditioning system and ceiling fans. The two bedrooms are both generous in size with the choice of the main being optional as one bedroom has a built in-robe whilst the other has its own external access to a side courtyard. Both bedrooms enjoy the views on offer. The bathroom has a shower, bath, separate toilet and laundry facilities. This home is very comfortable for either full time living or as a holiday home.
IMPROVEMENTS: The front deck, with timber balustrade and marine wire, is the place from which to oversee the water. Attached to the rear of the home is a wide, full length verandah with concrete floor underfoot. River water is stored in the header tank that services the grounds and home whilst the rainwater tank collects and supplies water to the home. The dimensions of the shed are 20’ x 20’ with a smaller garden shed located near the home. A semi enclosed, stone paved courtyard is positioned off one of the bedrooms.
