Enjoy sunset drinks by the pool or from one of the many alfresco entertaining spaces overlooking the River Murray, from this Hindmarsh Island waterfront home.
Bob and Joan Jones, who built the property at 8 Fraser Drive, seven years ago, say it had undoubtedly been their dream home – one that had offered the ultimate riverside lifestyle.
“It’s a beautiful home, right down by the water and we’ve loved living here. So it’s a very reluctant sale for us,” Mr Jones says.
We’re only selling because our lifestyle is more around Adelaide now, it’s where our family is.
“The home is now simply too big for us as it comes with a swimming pool, three toilets and three bedrooms.”
But it’s the large open-plan living, dining and kitchen space with big glass windows overlooking the river that’s the real focal point of the home.
This space leads out to a number of interflowing alfresco spaces which wrap around two sides of the home.
“The way we designed the house, you can move away from the wind as Goolwa can get pretty windy,” Mr Jones says.
“We love outdoor entertaining so wanted a home where we could do that.
“Over the years, we had many wonderful parties here, including a New Year’s party where we had 60 people on the deck.”
Mr Jones says the home, which also has a three-car garage and a 5kW solar system, would suit a variety of buyers.
“It would be an ideal home for someone looking to retire or for use as a holiday home,” he says.
The property is on the market with Harcourts South Coast and has an asking price of $1.15 million to $1.25 million.
