STAGE 1 (18 BLOCKS) SOLD - STAGE 2 SELLING
Originally home to the Mumirimina people, the ‘Vale of Bagdad’ was settled in 1815 by Royal Marines private, Hugh Germain. In the mid to late 1880s, the land was used as a thriving orchard, supplying George Peacock, Henry Jones, and later IXL on Hobart’s bustling waterfront. The fruit from this fertile valley was taken by horse and buggy to Hunter Street wharf and turned into jams that were sold throughout the empire.
Centrally located within the historic township of Bagdad, this beautiful valley position is home to historic mansions, and rolling farmlands and is located within:
• A 35-minute drive along the Midland Highway to Hobart;
• A 10-minute drive north of Brighton, home to supermarkets, hotel, bakery, and Tasmania’s proposed high school;
• A 12-minute drive to Brighton Industrial Estate – Hobart’s largest new industrial and transport hub;
• A 25-minute drive to Glenorchy’s commercial centre, the epicentre of Hobart’s northern suburbs and home to a host of amenities.
‘Orchard Estate’ offers level blocks located in a vibrant community whose popularity is on the rise. Get in early, before the opening of the new Brighton High School ($74M) and the Bridgewater bridge ($786M) take this area to a whole new level of amenity.
