This property is an extremely attractive north facing property located on the Nangkita/Mt Compass main bitumen road and between the McLaren Vale and Currency Creek wine regions.
The property is 41.51ha (approx 102 acres) in area of gently sloping highly productive land, particularly suitable for growing vines with its sand over ironstone and clay soils. Currently approx 12 ha/30 acres of established vines are in production, of which approx 10ha/24 acres are Shiraz and 2.4ha/6 acres of Chardonnay. The Nangkita Ridge grapes are highly sought after and have never failed to find a market. There is potential for a further 16ha/40 acres of vineyard expansion and a water licence to support this expansion.
An equipped bore pumps quality water to a holding dam for use in the vineyard and a 41.52 megalitre water licence will be included in the sale of the property.
The entrance to the homestead is highlighted by the tractor on the pole, and the beautiful avenue of London Plane Trees from the road to the residence. The substantial circa 2002 brick veneer Sterling home comprises 3 bedrooms, kitchen, dining, family area, office, formal dining or lounge, 2 bathrooms, 3 toilets, and has ducted evaporative air-conditioning throughout. The home is in an elevated position looking out over the vineyard.
Adjoining and extending the full length of the house is a fully enclosed pergola with patterned concrete floor and complete with plantation shutters along the main wall, and 2 roller-doors on one end, allowing the pergola to be fully opened up for circulation and air movement. The owners have installed a great gas ‘log fire’ in a purpose-built bluestone chimney for the cooler months.
Rainwater to the house is supplied from the 120,000 litre/50,000-gallon tank, a 5kw solar system is connected to the grid, and a 3-bay garage is located adjacent to the house.
Three poly tanks sit in the paddock above the house for garden water provided from the farm bore. A stand-alone 5,000 litre tank with in-situ pump retained for firefighting purposes.
Shedding is a feature of this property. Originally planned to house a winery, the main shed is approx 50m x 12m x nearly 5m high, fully enclosed and with sisal insulation in the roof – there is plenty of space for a winery, a cellar door, a commercial storage facility, and the list of opportunities goes on. Another large fully enclosed shed houses a workshop and temporary living quarters, smaller sheds for the farm implements, general storage and pumping shed.
Settlement will be 1 May 2021 unless a different date and price is negotiated.
