Rural Lifestyle on Willunga outskirts!
This is an outstanding opportunity to own a 4.1ha. (approx.. 10 acres) allotment on the outskirts of Historic Willunga. Zoned Primary Production, this unique property is surrounded by the vistas of the picturesque Willunga Hills, the rolling vineyards of the famous McLaren Vale wine region, and the Willunga township, its main street only around 1km away. The property is in Whites Valley which is a small area that adjoins Willunga. Back in In the 1800's it was a busy little community in
the heart of a grain growing district. Whites Valley was named after Samuel White, who was a prominent business entrepreneur in the area. He owned several of the flour mills that were built in 1844, as well as turning his hand at ship building.
The relatively flat rectangular property has a 144m (approx..) Aldinga Road frontage and it also has entry from Delabole Road. It is said to have the remnants of one of the earliest almond orchards that the area was once famous for. In recent years wild olive trees were allowed to crowd out the old almond trees. The property is now awaiting the new owners, to develop it into an enviable rural allotment that will suit a multitude of potential uses; e.g. vines, fruit trees, vegetables and/or floriculture gardens, haymaking, equine facilities, etc. It could be that dream rural lifestyle property with family residence (SCC);
The current improvements include a c1970's two story residence and an extensive row of assorted c1970's shedding. The vendors have advised that there is evidence of termite damage in the 118sqm (approx.) residence, especially in the wood-framed upper floor, and subject to professional advice, a cost-effective renovation could be possible, at the very least for the bottom story brick portion that currently offers one bedroom, kitchen/dining/family, bathroom, laundry and under cover outdoor BBQ area.
Other features include;
Mains water and power connected
2.5kW (approx..) solar system
Some established gardens
Large assortment of fruit trees
