David Wicks is the first to admit that his former Blanchetown property is a little “bogan”.

Not only does it feature two old caravans, an outdoor bar and kitchen, and a purpose-built racetrack, but an outdoor living space with a collection of used couches, often found set alight on the central fire pit.

Mr Wicks said he bought the property, at Section 111 Old Coach Rd, 10 years ago as a means to escape city life and offer his children a place to be “just kids”.

“It’s been a great place for the family and many of our friends. The kids could drive cars and play with motorbikes and we had speakers up on the caravans, so we could play music,” he said.

“It was all about outdoor living.

“As for the couches, that all happened with a few people coming up. People would give them away, so they would just appear here.

“Even though they looked very daggy, they were quite warm. So when we had the fire going, we’d snuggle into one of them and when they got too old, we’d throw them on the fire and replace them with new ones.”

Despite its rustic and bogan-esque appeal, the property last month sold for $125,000, couches inclusive.

Selling agent Sharon Powardy of Ray White Berri Barmera Loxton - Waikerie said despite the property’s unique appearance, buyer interest had been strong.

“It was very popular and ended up selling for a good price,” she said.

“It was the kind of property that drew in buyers from the city and was seen by many as the ideal bachelor pat to escape to on weekend.

“So that’s who it ended up selling to, a young lad from the city.”

Ms Powardy said demand for affordable lifestyle properties was growing across the northern suburbs.

“Certainly, anything that’s within a few hours of the city is sought after,” she said.

“People like to have something where they can go back to nature. A place to escape the city.”
