Private Eco-Friendly Luxury On Kangaroo Island

Created for the coastal environment by South Australian architects Geoff Nairn and Tim Ross of Design Inc. comes the remarkably positioned Little Cuttlefish on Kangaroo Island.

Overlooking the vast blue waters of Backstairs Passage to the mainland, the 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 2 car garage home offers an isolated, eco-friendly retreat like no-other.

Perched on the ultimate clifftop platform and spanning approximately 135 acres, the structure is designed to be completely sustainable with off-grid infrastructure including solar power and rainwater tanks offering a complete shift in lifestyle.

Upon arriving at Little Cuttlefish, you are guided along its 1.5km sheoak-lined driveway, leading you alongside paddocks before revealing the blue ocean below and rammed earth house.

On the property, the current custodians have planted an incredible 10,000 trees over the past 20 years to create an immensely private property.

The ground floor consists of kitchen, living, dining and lounge spaces with a facilities room located behind the kitchen.

There are two spacious bedrooms fitted with Moroccan style ensuite bathrooms. Above the top floor has a beautiful balcony to sit on and enjoy the changing light of dusk and dawn. Elsewhere the second bedroom can be utilised as a library or guest bedroom with its own ensuite.

Heating and cooling have been intelligently designed to use the natural environment and elements of the home. Concrete floors are heated throughout the cooler months through an underfloor heating system.

Outside sees a long, swimming pool running almost the length of the property and overlooking the grand ocean views.

Further, a large garage adjacent to the garden offers potential for conversion into further accommodation — or as a link to the main house.

The house is enclosed at the rear by a superb walled garden — including a vegetable garden — which combines with park-like surrounds and world-class ocean views.

Little Cuttlefish is located just 10 minutes from the ferry terminal and township of Penneshaw on the eastern end of the wilderness paradise of Kangaroo Island, South Australia.

The listing is with Deborah Cullen (+61 401 849 955), EOI.

The home in the village of Sagaponack has plenty of balconies to take in the surrounding water views

A waterfront home in the Hamptons village of Sagaponack, New York, is on the market for the very first time.

Asking $25.95 million, the gray shingle-style home was built in 2008 by the seller and has since been available as a summer rental, but it’s never been up for sale.

Designed by architect Faruk Yorgancioglu, the “waterfront home offers privacy and panoramic beauty that cannot be duplicated under today’s zoning laws,” said co-listing agent Marilyn Clark of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage.

The seller bought the property, which at the time had two small structures, at auction in 2005 for approximately $2 million, according to co-listing agent Deborah Pirro of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty. Mansion Global could not contact the seller.

The home hit the market Thursday, and in addition to Clark and Pirro, it is co-listed by Raquel Lopez of Sotheby’s International Realty – Bridgehampton Brokerage and Diane Anderson of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.

Spanning 6,000 square feet, the home is filled with bright interiors, which were designed by New York-based interior designer Steven Gambrel. The open gourmet kitchen flows into a casual dining area and a living space with a fireplace, which is one of two double-sided fireplaces in the home, Pirro said.

“The placement and scale of fireplaces throughout the home is perfection,” she added.

A separate dining room has French doors that open onto a deck, listing photos show.

There are six en-suite bedrooms, including two primary bedrooms. The larger of the two is its own private retreat, outfitted with a fireplace, a sunroom and a large balcony, offering a space to watch the sun set over Sagaponack Pond, according to Sotheby’s.

The home sits on a little more than an acre of waterfront land, bordering Sagaponack Pond, where there’s a private dock, and looking out at the Atlantic Ocean in the distance.

“The location on the pond with the view of the ocean waves breaking is spectacular and unique,” Clark said. “You are close to beaches and the Sagaponack General Store. It is a quick paddle to the famous Sagg Main Beach.”

Other outside amenities include a gunite swimming pool and a hot tub, which are surrounded by a spacious deck, as well as a pool cabana, which has a full bathroom, changing rooms and a sauna. There’s also multiple balconies, decks and a screened porch overlooking the pool, striking a balance between indoor and outdoor living.
