Overview

About the property

Spacious 4 bedroom modern home with front verandah. Great location, very close to the river Murray (no direct access to river). Ample parking for cars and boats. Proximal to a boat ramp and the First Lock on the river. The house is conveniently situated in the heart of township near a historic pub.

It is a perfect touring base. A classic river country is only a short car or boat trip away with lagoons, wetlands and a backdrop of vineyards and grazing land.

Blanchetown is situated near the river Murray approx. 130 km north-east of Adelaide, within easy reach of the Riverland and the Barossa Valley. The uncrowded waterways, sheltered river bends and sandy banks are popular with water-skiers in the summer months.

Blanchetown is where the Murray River's lock and weir water flow management system starts.

The old bridge in the town gives an excellent view of Lock 1 and flying above are hundreds of hungry pelicans that love to feed on the schools of fish near the spillway.

Although Blanchetown's towering cliffs are famous for the grand views of their changing colours, closer inspection reveals fossilised treasures such as starfish, shells and fish.

Great place for family/group to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was large with 4 bedrooms and plenty of room to move. The outside is not landscaped, but it was enough for us to sit in the sun and also for our little dog to run around. The family enjoyed the opportunity to be together, but still have our own privacy.
