HOUSE, 40acres + AVIARY COMPLEX
Here is an opportunity if you want a large bird collection without the worry of noise and neighbours.
I am selling up and moving further away to a larger property and business opportunity.
I am situated 4km from the town centre of McLaren Vale (the famous wine producing region) and 7km by road to Moana Bch. but only 35mins drive to Adelaide city centre.
Pedler Creek flows through the property. It is an oasis for wildlife, especially birdlife, with over 100spp, recorded.
There is no road frontage but the property is at the end of a no-through road, so it is very private. There are no neighbours to be seen but the closest are 250m away and others are much further. The rest of the property is surrounded by much larger acreages, 120, 80 and 500. That means you can have all of the noisiest birds you want and no-one is going to complain!
The house is an Australian colonial design, off ground, with a huge covered outdoor living area, wide verandahs and decks plus there are awesome views over the creek valley, gardens and along beautiful vistas.
There are a number of large aviaries suited to large cockatoos, macaws etc and the Lory House is a purpose built tropical parrot house for suspended cages and sub-tropical plants.
The gardens (a keen gardeners paradise) are expansive with a 1ac rainforest plant garden, a larger wetland and riparian zone, a 1ac palm garden and lawns, 1-2 ac arid zone/eremophila garden with some very rare plants, local indigenous vegetation and others. (The palm garden of 27 years growth is designed for wedding gardens but in the short term is being used for a glamping tent+ set-up and is earning good money).
I have been trialling growing Quandongs here and they are doing very well so there is a great opportunity to develop a Quandong orchard in one of the open paddocks.
There is a substantial set up for horses, 5 stables and tack room each, large yards (approx 1/2 ac each, paddocks and full size arena, if you have horses.
There is much more than discussed here.
Sometimes it seems crazy to leave this place, it has so much, but it's now or never.
If you are interested, please be very quick as offers close Nov. 30, this Tuesday. You can ask me more by phoning me and/or contacting the agent, Julie-ann Ball from Timms Realestate.
