Self-sufficiency in idyllic surrounds, 100 percent off-grid and bill-free life; settle on some of Adelaide's prettiest countryside where your weekender dream or home of the future is but a blueprint away...
And this is the serenity you crave; all 97 acres of it. Only rolling hills and majestic gums sit between you and a new-build (STCC) just 10 minutes from Mount Torrens and an easy commute to Mount Barker, Murray Bridge, Mannum and Gawler.
Currently on site is a massive Colorbond lined and insulated shed with carport, wash/utility room, workshop, mezzanine and cosy combustion fire - more than a shed in every sense of the word.
Aligned true north for solar and passive heating/cooling, its energy efficiency goes further than that - it includes 10kW of solar, 40 panels, 2 inverters, 24 x 2V 800 Amp batteries and an 11kVA backup genset with custom exhaust through the lean-to roof...
And with a solar trickle charger to the genset and a volt meter to gauge battery levels, it becomes so much more than a place to wash up after a day on the soil (where you can run up to 20 cows comfortably) or agist for income.
Three paddocks, cattle yards, spring-fed dam, a winter creek, plus a 20,000-gallon overflow tank ensures life is great for all livestock.
But if you're ready to build, the proposed home site is true north-facing, has gas hot water, a school bus passes by the front gate, and despite your rural feel, residential homes also get rubbish collection.
Private and well away from roads and neighbours, the best visitors will be the wild deer, birds and kangaroos, while amazing sunsets and sunrises will not only satisfy your wellbeing, but your extensive solar efficient set-up clicking over the savings.
Automatic generator assistance is also on hand to boost your power supply if need be, with scope to upgrade further with extra inverters or a wind generator.
For solitude with outstanding self-sufficiency, welcome to tranquil Tungkillo...
