Real Estate For Sale – 1, The Esplanade

If you’re looking for a beachfront escape still within striking distance of the city and you’re passionate about nature, here’s the property for you – and just 45 minutes from Adelaide’s northern suburbs.

1, The Esplanade, Thompson Beach

Situated at 1 The Esplanade, Thompson Beach, this property boasts some of the best views in the township in my opinion.

You’ll have stunning views of the dune conservation area and Gulf St. Vincent, plus uninterrupted vistas of Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary National Park (Winaityinaityi Pangkara); including an inlet close by frequented by many species of birds.

Gulf St. Vincent view

Built by the owner (a builder by trade) using high quality materials and inclusions, this is a unique elevated residence featuring open plan living, high ceilings and extensive windows taking full advantage of the natural surroundings. Click here for more detail and photos.

National Park view

One of the interesting features of the property is a raised walkway leading up to the expansive deck of the residence, giving the home a very nautical feel.

More Than Just Birds

More than 50 species of migratory birds have been recorded frequenting Thompson Beach. The area is also home to around ninety species of inland birds along with other wildlife; including kangaroos that may pay you a visit.

Even if you’re not into birding, the proximity and easy access to the beach just across the road and National Park on your doorstep provides many options for whiling away the days in this small seaside town. There’s good fishing, crabbing, fantastic beach and bushwalking – or you can just kick back and appreciate the amazing scenery; something you’ll never tire of.

Many first-time visitors to Thompson Beach are astounded a place of such natural beauty is so close to Adelaide and a Thompson Beach sunset is one they don’t forget.

I Missed This Opportunity – But You Don’t Have To

This home is situated on arguably the best block in Thompson Beach – it’s the land I wanted to purchase when I first visited the area. By the time I was ready to buy, it had been snapped up by the current owner. The old wisdom about opportunity knocking once proved very true in this instance.

I’m not on commission :). I just really want to see this property go to someone who will appreciate it and what the area has to offer.
