‘bluff cottage’ – rare beachfront heritage.

Best known as Bluff Cottage, a former residence of the prominent Shaw family, this rare beachfront property features 1800s heritage and a stunning panoramic coastal outlook.

The property is formed in two parts – the National Trust listed, Victorian Georgian-style, single storey building that is authentically constructed of sandstone with corrugated iron roof. And a large 1970s extension too.

The original cottage retains delightful period features across its two rooms – configured as a lounge and dining room with access to a north-facing patio, and bedroom with interrupted water views.

The large brick extension features a central kitchen and large living space with vaulted ceiling and French doors. There are further three bedrooms in this part of the property – two on the ground floor and one on the first floor, all featuring views over Great Oyster Bay. There is also bathroom with separate toilet, and a laundry with direct external access.

Stepping outside, the large and level parcel of land generously measures almost 1,500m2, features dry stack stone walls and enjoys more than 40 metres of frontage to the below sandy beach.

Located in the heart Tasmania’s popular Great Eastern Drive tourism region, Bluff Cottage is found at the end of quiet no through road and is within walking distance of Swansea restaurants and cafes.
