This is such an exciting opportunity that awaits a new owner to take advantage of this spectacular property and all that is to offer."

The history of Waverley Estate is a captivating journey through time. Built in 1856 as a simple three-roomed cottage and separate barn constructed of local bluestone, it was transformed in 1863 by schoolteacher George Anstey into the 'George Anstey Academy for Young Gentlemen.' Over the years, it became home to various families, including the Brackenridge and Inglis families, before undergoing a renovation in the early 1990s to restore its former glory.

Port Elliot, an idyllic historic coastal village, is situated on the southern coastline of the Fleurieu Peninsula. Just over an hour's drive from Adelaide, it is a favored holiday destination known for its magnificent beaches, perfect for surfing, bodyboarding, and swimming. The township offers an array of culinary delights, boutique shopping, antique stores, and booksellers.

Waverley Estate is available for sale by expression of interest, closing on Thursday, October 26, 2023, at 4pm ACST. For inquiries and further information, please contact Sam Alexander and Jed Harley of Cushman & Wakefield, or Russell Iles of Woodbridge Iles.
