Property Of The Week: 1185 Cape Willoughby Road, Cuttlefish Bay, SA

Your chance to own a pristine slice of Kangaroo Island.

By Terry Christodoulou 20/05/2022

Created for the coastal environment by South Australian architects Geoff Nairn and Tim Ross of Design Inc. comes the remarkably positioned Little Cuttlefish on Kangaroo Island.

Overlooking the vast blue waters of Backstairs Passage to the mainland, the 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2 car garage home offers an isolated, eco-friendly retreat like no-other.

Perched on the ultimate clifftop platform and spanning approximately 135 acres, the structure is designed to be completely sustainable with off-grid infrastructure including solar power and rainwater tanks offering a complete shift in lifestyle.

Upon arriving at Little Cuttlefish, you are guided along its 1.5km sheoak-lined driveway, leading you alongside paddocks before revealing the blue ocean below and rammed earth house.

On the property, the current custodians have planted an incredible 10,000 trees over the past 20 years to create an immensely private property.

The ground floor consists of kitchen, living, dining and lounge spaces with a facilities room located behind the kitchen.

There are two spacious bedrooms fitted with Moroccan style ensuite bathrooms. Above the top floor has a beautiful balcony to sit on and enjoy the changing light of dusk and dawn. Elsewhere the second bedroom can be utilised as a library or guest bedroom with its own ensuite.

Heating and cooling have been intelligently designed to use the natural environment and elements of the home. Concrete floors are heated throughout the cooler months through an underfloor heating system.

Outside sees a long, swimming pool running almost the length of the property and overlooking the grand ocean views.

Further, a large garage adjacent to the garden offers potential for conversion into further accommodation — or as a link to the main house.

The house is enclosed at the rear by a superb walled garden — including a vegetable garden — which combines with park-like surrounds and world-class ocean views.

Little Cuttlefish is located just 10 minutes from the ferry terminal and township of Penneshaw on the eastern end of the wilderness paradise of Kangaroo Island, South Australia.

The listing is with Deborah Cullen (+61 401 849 955), EOI.
