Family home on acreage
Secreted away behind an oh-so-private hedge, is this idyllic pastoral retreat and its rambling, quintessentially Australian farmhouse. The lifestyle this property offers is one of a relaxed life in the country, without compromising the convenience that comes with living in a town. This is a home that you are sure to love raising your family in.
This traditional weatherboard and iron-roofed farmhouse set amidst 5.89 ha of lush pasture. The home was constructed in 1906, with a significant addition completed in c. 1999. The residence boasts 4 sizeable, light-filled bedrooms, two expansive living areas, and a truly farmhouse-style country kitchen. Recently painted inside in a tasteful colour palette, with new plush carpet throughout most of the home.
Outbuildings include a 12 x 6.5 m hayshed filled with hay cut from the front paddock, an open-sided shelter currently serving as a stable with additional store rooms and a henhouse. There is also an 8.6 x 5 m garage, and ample off-street parking is available. The land holding is fenced into a number of paddocks, and is currently providing a happy home to a several horses, handily connected to town water, complemented by a winter creek which flows through the property. Platypus have been sighted here on occasion.
Once an orchard, bountiful remnants of the farm’s history endure. Enjoy a summertime harvest from established trees which include: almond, quince, lemon, plum, apple, figs, pears, feijoa and mulberry. The property and its “Rural Living” zoning certainly has income potential, and may be the ideal location for the right business (S.T.C.A.). Market gardener, farm stay accommodation, home office, surgery or salon- opportunities abound!
The location: on the fringe of the West Tamar Valley hub township of Exeter. The home is within easy walking distance to shops and services, with Exeter High School just over the back paddock fence. The city of Launceston is an easy 22-minute commute, and the golf course and sandy beaches of Greens Beach is a leisurely 30 minutes away by car.
