Unique opportunity to purchase a new, spectacular Fleurieu Peninsula, luxury eco-tourism retreat.
Located on 75 acres of beautiful undulating bushland with magnificent coastal views, the retreat offers a choice of 3 architecturally designed self-contained luxury eco villas of different size and layout.
The Villas are sited on the edge of the landscape to take advantage of the views and surrounding countryside. Each Villa has un-interrupted panoramic views across the valley to the ocean beyond.
The undulating picturesque grazing land and native vegetation surroundings offer guests an unforgettable eco-experience, imparting the feeling of being secluded and well away from the hassles of everyday life.
The eco experience is further enhanced as you approach the retreat via a meandering driveway over the creek and through the bushland.
No expense has been spared with the construction of the Villas. They showcase eco sensitive, environmentally sustainable building features to optimise passive design and environmental harmony. Environmental features include renewable Australian ironbark & spotted construction, passive design with north/south orientation, 150mm thick walls with maximum insulation in walls and ceilings, rainwater collection for full water self sufficiency and efficient water use appliances.
