For sale is a 922 square metre block, situated on the beachfront at Nepean Bay on Kangaroo Island. Nepean Bay is situated between American River and the town of Kingscote. It is a 15 minute drive each way and a 40 minute drive from the ferry at Penneshaw.
The dimensions are 18.9 metres (front/rear boundaries) and 48.77 metres (side boundaries). In the old measurements the block is 62 feet wide, 160 feet long. It boasts lovely big gums at the front and rear, with a cleared section towards the middle of the block - ready for building. The ADH (Australian Datum Height) has been surveyed and pegged, and the land is dead flat and 2 metres above the high tide mark. Rates are around $800 per year and power is right at the front boundary.
The beauty of Nepean Bay is that it is isolated yet so accessible - there are no facilities in this little hamlet so you can be sure of peace and quiet with town only 15 minutes away. The beach is flat and shallow and so is the bay, which is perfect for sailing. Fishing is stunning right out the front, and salmon can regularly be caught with a hand line.
The wildlife is amazing with resident koalas, a family of wallabies who live in a bush at the front of the block, as well as possums and incredible bird life. It is an absolute joy to wake up to the sounds of the birds. Night time is beautiful with thousands of stars and the full moon on the water is something to see.
The block has a 2.1 metre colourbond fence on one side boundary which was put up a year ago, along with a 3x3 metre shed and a 1000 litre water tank at the back of it. It fills up very nicely and provides plenty of water for the occasional weekend visit. There is currently a 1982 Evernew 18 foot van onsite which will be removed or can be negotiated into the sale if required.
This is an opportunity to purchase one of the very few premium waterfront blocks on the Esplanade that have a clear view of the water. 90% of the Esplanade blocks have thick bushland on the strip between the property's boundaries and the beach and KI Council now prevents any clearing.
