FOR QUICK AND EASY BITUMEN ACCESS APPROACH VIA ENTERPRISE ROAD FROM NANGKITA ROAD. Some words from the vendors: “We originally moved from Sydney and came across the area on a weekend getaway to Victor Harbor. The Fleurieu Peninsula provided the lifestyle that we were seeking with amazing countryside, Mount Compass provided this and more while still being within a reasonable commute to the city. We had been looking for quite some time for a small acreage when one of the real estate salesperson we were dealing with recommended this block. We dismissed it when we first drove past due to the lack of power and the costs involved in getting it connected. We didn’t want to settle on just any land and so after some time we still hadn’t found what we were looking for. We saw this block was still for sale so this time we actually went onto the block and had a good look around. When we got to the top and saw the view we knew that we just had to have it. We wanted to create a property that met all of our needs for now and into the future, whilst also taking advantage of the views. With this in mind we built a property with the ideal shed, dream kitchen and play rooms for family members of all ages, whilst keeping an area for riding motorbikes and having animals. The things we love about the area are the easy commute to the city, which will only improve once the southern expressway is completed. It is so peaceful yet you don’t feel isolated. There are bus services to several very good private and public schools within the area with stops on the corner of Enterprise road and Nangkita road. You can easily access a choice of schools in Mount Compass, Goolwa, Strathalbyn, Tatachilla and Victor Harbor. Mount Compass provides many community activities within the area ranging from soccer, football, netball, tennis, scouts and community groups and of course the only cow race in Australia - the Compass Cup, which is a must as it is a great entertaining day out. Mount Compass provides all the services that you would use on a daily basis and it is within commuting distance to the many wineries, pubs, festivals and restaurants located in Willunga, McLaren Vale, Goolwa, Victor Harbor, Port Elliot and Middleton. You are spoilt for choice. We will be sad to sell the house however we have discovered after living on small acreage that we would like a larger block within the area where we can do it all again. We only hope that the new family will enjoy living here for years to come as much as we have in the short period of time that we have been here.” First National Real Estate Nick van Vliet takes pride in presenting this property to the market.

DEAR FUTURE OWNER! When we purchased the bare block of land there were virtually no trees on Taylors Hill Road (and at that time, not many in the hills above Willlunga either) but we could see the potential to have a nice private life style literally 5 minutes from the main street of the township. Why 50 acres? Well we learnt from our previous 6 acre property that the house garden takes most of the work (mowing lawns etc) while livestock takes care of the paddocks. All you need is a good stock agent to do the buying and selling, keep an eye on the cattle to make sure they have water and move them from one paddock to the next. Oh and by the way, yes the cattle can make you some money while you are enjoying other things in life. Our aim was to build a house that made the best of the location in terms of privacy and in such a way that it would add to the surrounding environment and take in the ever changing views. We joined Trees for Life and planted over 1000 trees every year for 10 years. The plan was to site a solar passive home facing north so that it would take advantage of the winter sun, then design and construct it to be energy efficient. Add to that, your own water supply, effluent system, solar panels, wood lot, orchard and veggie garden and you end up with a home that has very low running costs. So now the time has come that you might ask why we are selling as you know we have very much enjoyed this lifestyle. Well our lives are entering a different stage and we have decided to move down the coast, pursue other interests and let someone else enjoy what we have enjoyed.
