— Kangaroo Island SA —
Purposely created for the coastal environment by SA architects Geoff Nairn and Tim Ross of Design Inc. This extraordinary rammed earth constructed residence, on approximately 135 acres, is perfectly positioned facing north, overlooking the vast blue waters of Backstairs Passage to the mainland.
It is the ultimate clifftop platform from which to enjoy nature’s constantly changing landscape and environment.
Designed to be completely sustainable with off grid infrastructure including solar power and rainwater tanks, this stunning property is the dream location to launch a new lifestyle, tourism, or agricultural chapter in a truly world class setting.
On entering Little Cuttlefish you are guided along its 1.5 kilometre sheoak-lined driveway, leading you alongside paddocks and native gullies, to open up and reveal the expansive blue ocean and rammed earth house. The current custodians have planted an incredible 10,000 trees over the past 20 years to create a very special and private property.
Accommodation on the ground floor level consists of kitchen, living, dining and lounge spaces with a facilities room located behind the kitchen. There are two spacious bedrooms with Moroccan style ensuite bathrooms, the master bedroom on the top floor has a beautiful balcony to sit on and enjoy the morning or afternoon changing views. The second bedroom can be utilised as a library or guest bedroom with its own ensuite.
Heating and cooling have been cleverly planned for by utilising the natural environment and elements of the home. Concrete floors are heated throughout the cooler months through a combination of natural sunlight and an underfloor heating system.
A large shed/garage adjacent to the garden offers potential for conversion into further standalone accommodation, or as a link to the main house. There are also endless sites across the property with beautiful positions and perspectives that could be used for further individual accommodation.
The house is enclosed at the rear by a superb walled garden (including a vegetable garden), which combined with the park-like surrounds, native topiary and world-class ocean views.
For those seeking to run a few livestock, the property is newly fenced with two dams and ample shade.
Little Cuttlefish is located just 10 minutes from the ferry terminal and township of Penneshaw on the eastern end of the wilderness paradise of Kangaroo Island, South Australia.
If you are seeking an extraordinary eco-retreat on one of Australia’s most ought-after islands, we look forward to organising your personal and private viewing of this very special home.
