The Islander Domain: Beachside living

HOUSE OF THE WEEK

What an opportunity this is to live in the picturesque coastal town of Penneshaw, the gateway to Kangaroo Island.

Low-maintenance living is on offer with this Flinders Terrace home, known locally as The Levels.

The area is tightly held and now Kangaroo Island Council has installed a new sewer system, this region has become a lot more valuable given there is no longer any need for wasted land needed for septic and soakage.

The home has a wonderful northerly outlook over the beach at Hog Bay and the clear blue waters to the mainland. This is the perfect beachside getaway for holidays or all year round.

The home offers three bedrooms, open plan lounge/kitchen and dining.

There is a golden opportunity now to reconfigure the layout and expand on the floor space toward the rear.

To the rear there is a single garage and levelled area for outdoor dining, cleaning the fish or locking up the pets.

This property is one of only a few where access to the backyard is still achievable, great for leaving a car or boat in the garage and it is not too far to walk from the ferry, making for reduced transport costs.
