Step into History: Colonial Charm in the Timeless Beauty of Bushy Park

Discover the allure of Bushy Park, nestled amidst the scenic splendour of the Hop Fields in the tranquil Derwent Valley. Just a brief, picturesque drive from New Norfolk and within easy reach of Hobart, this charming rural enclave offers an idyllic retreat for both growing families and those seeking a serene retirement setting.

Here, amidst the timeless beauty of the valley, stands a remarkable Colonial brick house, steeped in history and character. Situated on a peaceful parcel of land, set back quietly from the tourist bustle, the property boasts ample parking and rear access, with sweeping views of rolling hills, historic Oast houses, and the majestic Mt Wellington Ranges.

Step inside and be transported through time, as the house exudes a palpable sense of history. Original Colonial paint adorns one room, while another boasts a captivating “History wall,” adorned with layers of wallpaper and paint spanning over 150 years. If the walls could talk, the history they would recount is nothing short of extraordinary.

This spacious residence offers versatility in its layout, with eight rooms, including four bedrooms and two living areas, three of which are generously proportioned. The possibilities are endless, with the potential to reconfigure spaces, such as converting a room into two bedrooms or creating a grand central room with the removal of a c. 1915 wooden hallway addition.

For those with entrepreneurial spirit, two rooms, formerly the Post Office, offer the opportunity for a self-contained bed and breakfast accommodation, with the addition of a bathroom. The expansive grounds provide ample space for a lush garden oasis, complemented by mature plantings including an ancient quince, wisteria, lilacs, and an abundant 70-year-old apple tree.

A significant restoration has already been undertaken, including rewiring, but leaving a few historic rooms in their original condition. Flooded with sunlight throughout the day, this property is truly a rare gem awaiting its next chapter in history.
