The drive is via Pt. Wakefield , then along the Coast Road through Ardrossan, giving views of the ocean & Gulf St. Vincent.
The Adelaide skyline lights are visible at night, as are the Mt. Lofty Ranges during the day….making it a very relaxing drive anytime.
There is a substantial memorial to Capt. Harry Butler, a local wartime flyer & his Bristol monoplane.
He crash landed on the town’s outskirts while on a mail run.
He only survived for a relatively short time after this incident.( see pic’s)

The block, is at #1, 4th St. & is 40m x 22m. with a 1300mm fall towards Tilbrook St.
This allows the possibility of a built up frontage to improve the outlook from inside the home.
It is a corner block with 2 frontages looking out over crop land. )….a serene & peaceful outlook.
There are no Council plans to change the town boundaries, so this view will always exist.
The block has extensive eucalypt plantings (only the 3 central trees would need removing to build).
The trees to the north would protect the home from the summer sun & likewise those on the west side would also provide afternoon shelter.
There is space on the block to build an up to 25m x 11m home,( including an UMR. double garage) that fits within the
Yorke Peninsula Council’s setback requirements.( see pic’s)
I can provide details of all this, as I had the plans in place to build, but circumstances prevented me going ahead with this.
All this, in a great location for a holiday home on Yorke Peninsula.
Asking price is $69,000.00 , but all genuine offers will be considered.
You could have a home for around $130,000.00 - $150,000.00 on this block.(see pic).
