Beautiful stately family home on large acreage
Privately situated at the end of a no through road, this stunning lifestyle property is that rare offering that will provide many years of memories for your family and friends. Previously used as an equestrian property, this almost 39 acre homestead would also ideally suit a savvy horticulturist or hobby farmer. With 5 dams and access to bore water, the numerous paddocks benefit from underground irrigation. Horses, alpacas, sheep or goats would all love the lush pasture, drinking from the dams, dozing in the numerous shelters and generally enjoying life. There is plenty of scope to add orchards, grapes, berries and additional veggies. With the abundance of space and water, garlic, potatoes, and a market garden would also be a great option.
The delightfully dignified and classic 1900’s homestead has presence and boasts elegant period features, glowing timber Tas Oak floorboards, graceful ceiling roses and ornate carved fireplaces throughout the home. Sun drenched with a flexible floorplan allowing for up to five bedrooms this is a home the whole family can relax and unwind in. The impressive long hallway beckons you into this lovely home. With multiple living areas and an option to use the fifth bedroom as a formal living area plus a covered outdoor entertaining area, and an impressive front verandah there will always be an ideal spot for a quiet morning cuppa, a relaxed BBQ lunch with friends or an evening glass of wine with loved ones at the end of the day.
The country style kitchen has plenty of preparation space, a dish washer and updated large gas oven plus a large wood heater. The owners have recently installed a reverse cycle heat pump in the spacious living area allowing for effective climate control throughout the year. The bathroom is well sized with a separate shower, basin, toilet and deep soaker claw foot bath to soak away the day. The large laundry is located at the rear of the home with an additional toilet, a perfect spot to kick off the muddy boots and leave the raincoats before entering the home.
Outside there is an abundance of infrastructure. Whether you are looking for a horse property with everything already in place, a green thumb wanting to earn a living from the property or just looking for space and privacy, all options are covered here. A 40m x 20m indoor horse arena would provide great undercover storage for the car enthusiast. There is a double garage plus two additional large sheds that would suit as stables, hay shed, tack and feed rooms for the horse enthusiast, or serve equally well as workshops or packing and storage sheds for those looking at deriving an income from the land.
There are so many additional advantages to this property. A short and easy stroll will find you at the beach. Fall asleep to the sounds of the waves, the croaking of the frogs and the wind through the trees. The kids will fall in love with the property with so many secret garden areas and the option to pop a canoe in the dam on a summer’s day, no doubt their friends will be constantly visiting! A historic blacksmith’s cottage could also provide additional guest accommodation once updated STCA.
All this and only a short 14 min drive to Lauderdale’s specialty shops, restaurants, supermarket, day cares and local school. Hobart airport is an easy 27 min drive and the Hobart CBD only 34 mins away.
