Where the River Meets the Sea
Wake up to uninterrupted 180-degree views across the water from the master bedroom of this very special property. Let a sunrise herald every morning as you contemplate the pleasures that are on offer for your day.
This charming home with 2 bedrooms and extra sleepout accommodation is a real treasure. Sit back and take in the sumptuous views from the sunroom, beautiful whatever the weather might be. It’s only a few steps from your door across the quiet no-through-road to the beach and water.
Kelso is tightly held enclave on the mouth of the Tamar River at the spot where the river meets the waters of the Bass Strait. A perpetual favourite for busy Launceston families when they need a shack that is closer than the East Coast. At Kelso you will have arrived, unpacked, have the steaks on the BBQ and begun the relaxation before the East Coast holiday makers have made it halfway.
Kelso is also popular with retirees who make this magical location their permanent home. Here you can live your life to the set rhythms of the tides and indulge in bird watching, beach combing, fishing, and fossicking for shells as you stroll across the sand. If your tastes are more adventurous try some windsurfing, sailing and epic walks around the point to Greens Beach and the open waters of Bass Strait.
A bright lounge room taking full advantage of the views features a brick fireplace and chimney breast perfectly colour matched to the warm honey-toned timber floors which flow through the lounge and hall into the kitchen. Partly updated and in great condition the kitchen has a fresh feel, plenty of storage . There is an undeniable charm to the original simplicity of the cupboards and who wouldn’t enjoy washing up when you can look out over the water from the kitchen sink.
Both the large bedrooms in the main house have original timber built-in wardrobes, both rooms are filled with natural light and are finished in a pleasing neutral colour palette offering ample space. They share a large, well-designed bathroom with easy access to a sizable walk in shower area with integrated bench seat and dual shower head providing a luxurious experience. The bonus sleepout is separate to the main house and opens possibilities for different uses dependent on your needs.
Very well maintained the home sits on a level low maintenance block with good fencing, there are raised veggie beds, a green house, lawned areas and a choice of paved patio areas. With four tanks for water storage, solar hot water with 8 solar panels, reverse cycle heat pump, workshop and garaging for 2 vehicles plus open parking, ramp access to the home and a large separate laundry all practicalities are covered.
