South Arm

140 Fort Direction Road

Sold 24th January 2022 for $1,810,000


Panoramic ocean views that can never be built out, on coveted Tasmanian coastal land. Own a slice of paradise.

Preserved and protected, South Arm Peninsula boasts some of the island’s most sought-after surf beaches, and the pristine white sands of family friendly Opossom Bay. Hilltop Keep is a peaceful sanctuary on Potters Hill, high above the South Arm township. The property sits on 4ha (9.8ac) of rural-zoned land (see: un-penetrable by overriding development) and is situated just 35 minutes from Hobart’s International Airport but feels a thousand miles from anywhere.

The land itself is relatively untouched and the Hilltop Keep package beckons a forward-thinking ocean-lover, nature lover, and/or high-end investor to take prized ownership of this unique Tasmanian eco-paradise.

Stay, share, or start again.

Currently multi-purposed as a private escape, boutique, short term accommodation, and hired out for cinematic projects, the brutal beauty is ready to move into, or, equally ripe for a tasteful redo.

Enjoy restoring a brutalist gem to its greatest potential or start again using the rare 360° coastal view, perched on a piece of Tasmania that can never be bought again, as your canvas.

About the house:

An eco-passive, pavilion-style three-bedroom home with hardwood floors, central, open plan kitchen, dining and lounge, freestanding woodfire heater plus two additional common spaces—open cathedral attic and separate yoga or art studio. Dramatic postcard views from every window will impress.

Double-glazed windows, LED lighting, two-car garage, water storage, boundary fencing, a well-formed driveway, monitored security and excellent phone reception add value to the otherwise elegant simplicity of the house.

But let Hilltop Keep’s land take over.

Step outside onto multiple outdoor entertaining spaces offering warmth, views and priceless experiences from all angles. South Arm sunsets are phenomenal, and the landscape at Hilltop Keep—which has been sustainably, and eco-developed to maintain the untouched ambiance—complements every part of the day.

Make it yours.
