Expressions of Interest ($1.1m+)


On arrival at Springmount Retreat you enter a hidden world of breathtaking views where the Wow factor’ overwhelmingly takes hold of every visitor.

Rated by Australian travel writer* as “South Australia’s best kept secret” it is currently operated as award winning Eco-resort accommodation with your choice to continue on or make it your own.

This unique architecturally-designed Eco-Retreat is set high on the ridge-top on 34.5Ha (85) acres of pristine bushland, in the heart of the Fleurieu Peninsula, with a panorama of the Great Southern Ocean and beautiful Inman Valley.

Completed in 2011 and lovingly crafted with natural materials and sustainability in mind, it has been purpose-built to be either a permanent home or accommodation for small groups who want to experience a tranquil environment to completely relax and unwind.

The architectural pavilion design comprises of 3 separate zones all connected by an undercover breezeway featuring a spacious outdoor deck for al-fresco living. North facing windows create passive winter warmth and flood the mezzanine of the main house with natural light. Timber floors and interior cladding feature through-out including the custom bunk-loft & the curved bath-house.

The Retreat’s timeless appearance and design is refreshingly different. Incorporating style and function Springmount Eco-Retreat produces its own solar energy as well as self-sufficient water supply, providing an extremely low environmental footprint.

Visiting Kangaroos come right up to the doorstep and the back-yard wilderness is alive with an endless number of bird varieties from tiny Superb Blue Wren’s to magnificent Yellow-tail Black Cockatoos. Watch the Eagles soar above you from the deck or take a bush-walk with resident kangaroos and an abundance of wildlife in a peaceful natural environment.
This stunning property is located a mere 10 minutes from Victor Harbor, 30 minutes to McLaren Vale wine region & just over an hour to Adelaide CBD.

* A review of Springmount Retreat accommodation by Australian Travel writer Stephen Lacey.
“As a travel writer for numerous national and international publications, I can say without a hint of hubris that this is one of my top five accommodation houses I’ve had the pleasure of staying in. An architect-designed home with sweeping views to the ocean, surrounded by bushland teaming with wildlife (we saw eagles, an echidna, heaps of kangaroos) and close to beaches, coastal hamlets, world class wineries, and providores, this should be on your bucket list.”
