Period Country Charm
As you drive through the automatic opening gates and through to the well-established botanic gardens, you can’t help but fall in love with this charming federation homestead.
Sitting on approximately 2 acres and located in a sunny, elevated position is this three-bedroom, two-bathroom family home. The property itself provides a flexible floor plan and features generous size rooms throughout. There is a sizeable lounge room with stunning water views over the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, a separate formal dining room for those large family gatherings, and a third living area currently used as a sunroom. A designated library room PLUS a separate office is ideal for those who are working from home, currently studying, or it can easily be converted to an art studio.
The heart of the home has been upgraded and features a country style eat in kitchen and includes updated appliances with a walk-in larder and cellar. The kitchen has lovely garden views, overlooking the paved courtyard area that captures all day sun and is perfect for sitting outside and enjoying a cuppa.
The home is undoubtedly a blend of old and new, yet its original charm and character remain with high ceilings, chandeliers, dado railings and two original (and functioning) open fireplaces, and that’s just to name a few.
So much thought has gone into establishing the matured gardens over the years, with the current owner planting numerous varieties of trees and plants. The garden has a beautiful botanical setting and includes a Japanese theme waterfall with various viewing platforms that any gardening enthusiast could simply sit down, relax and enjoy.
There is a small orchard and fenced paddocks to the back of the property that forms part of the outer estate and is ideal for sheep, alpacas, or even a pony. Several outbuildings include a single carport, a double garage with an attached workshop, and plenty of off-street parking for a boat or caravan.
This large family home has so much to offer, is located approx. 25 minutes to Hobart CBD, within walking distance to the local primary school, and a 2-minute drive to the local beach and playgrounds. So, if you’ve been dreaming of that lifestyle change….now could be the time!
