A Real Hidden Charm
Welcome to the Coal River family township of Colebrook nestled approximately an hour scenic drive from the Hobart CBD. This property, often referred to as “The Oaks” has been in the same family since the early 1900s and is approximately 95 acres and has supported a range of orchards and farming of sheep and cattle throughout the decades.
In earlier days, a well-established apple orchard saw the best of the fruit exported to England. Pear and cherry trees were also grown, as well as onions, potatoes, and many other vegetable crops. Sheep were raised for their wool and meat, dairy cows were reared for milk, cream, and butter, and egg production made for a self-sufficient farm, together with additional income from the farm. Beekeeping and the production of honey were adjuncts to vegetable and fruit production on the property.
A small quarry site on the property allowed some additional revenue in the 1980s, providing gravel to the Municipality of Richmond.
The property is located in a peaceful and attractive setting, comprising cleared land and native bush, from where it has been possible to view the Southern Lights. The land is gently undulating to moderate sloping with some steeper land towards the rear of the property.
The home, needs a little TLC, but has so much character and charm. With a winter creek at the boundary, loads of firewood and a red gravel quarry, this property would be able to offer a steady stream of income.
