Murray River oasis on Paisley Island with views from every room has been listed for auction. 

The 2,080 sqm Lot 14 River Drive property is just 90 minutes from Adelaide CBD by car.

The four-bedroom, two-bathroom property is schedules for an online auction on May 7, 2020 through Ray White agents Darren Pratt and Sheridan Huddy. 

“In 1992 I got a phone call from my mate telling me the guy next door was selling his property and asked if I wanted to take a look at it – I didn’t hesitate and went there pretty much straight away,” said the homebuilder and homeowner.

“I took my father, who was visiting from Poland at the time, and what we saw was this shack sat on the banks of the river on the front block.
 
“I turned to my father and asked his opinion and his advice was to close my eyes, put my hand in my pocket and just buy it, so that’s exactly what I did.

“After that, I purchased the back block and then the end block, and that gave us three blocks on the one title to play with.

“The wildlife here is truly stunning. You can sit on the deck, have a coffee and watch the swans swim by or feed the pet goose, Lucy. 

“Also, because we have the three end blocks of the island, there’s no through traffic so the peace and serenity is wonderful.
 
“The sun rises and sets against the cliffs and you can watch the boats and watercraft go past all day long. 

“But my wife and I are in our 70’s now, and this is a property suited to a younger generation, so it’s time for our next chapter in life.”

The owner recalled how he used to work for an architect in Sydney, and after all the planning, he built the property by himself over two years.

There are 28 lots on the island.

Ray White Barossa Valley/Two Wells Principal Darren Pratt said the property was an opportunity to capitalise on an amazing river outlook on the water’s edge.
