Opportunity to live the holistic life
Imagine, if you will, 64 hectares of paradise in the temperate climate of North-West Tasmania. A 10-minute drive from the coastal beaches of Wynyard and the Airport, slowly winding through the sunlight-dappled road of the Oldina Forest Reserve; windows rolled down you will arrive to the sanctuary of Corymbia Farm where you will be welcomed by gardens and organic produce of avocado and carob trees – you will notice quickly this is a special place! The gardens are mindfully arranged on gentle North-East facing slopes to capture the best sunlight; a spring-fed dam filled with trout; a chook pen; a barn for calves and acres and acres of lush, perennial pastures. Off in the distance, you can see fenced off riparian areas – corridors for native wildlife, bush tucker (including native pepper – a commercial enterprise) & native regeneration efforts – which blend seamlessly into the 21 hectares of pristine, untouched rainforest. There, the permanent watercourses and giant tree ferns create habitat for the likes of the grey goshawk, the Tasmanian devil and the freshwater crayfish. Welcome, to Corymbia Farm.
Corymbia Farm has two dwellings, a 3 bedroom home as well as a one-bedroom cottage. The main home has 3 bedrooms with built-ins, 3 living areas with one used as a studio workspace, 2 fireplaces centrally located, a laundry that works well as a mud room, bathroom, 2 toilets and a modern kitchen that is the heart of the home. Adjoining the home is an amazing garage fit for a king with a mezzanine floor with ceiling height of 4.5m and fireplace for those winter projects, in addition nearby is a 4-bay shed suitable for machinery & another good-sized shed. Just off from the house, in the garden, the one-bedroom Cottage sits offering a spacious, peaceful feel with large living spaces and all the creature comforts you would expect. Presently the cottage is used and licenced for B&B, however it is the perfect set up for visitors, extended family, or even generational living arrangements. The house and cottage are both designed with passive solar benefits in mind, with solar panels and rainwater hot water systems installed.
In the established gardens, watered via a 40,000L gravity-fed water tank, is a weather-proof entertainment setting perfect for outdoor gatherings; for a little quiet time away, there is a small, fully insulated, forest cabin equipped with 10,000L rainwater tank and wood stove. With an average 1000mls of rainwater annually, there is no shortage of natural water – but should there be a shortfall, the spring-fed dam is licenced for 43 megalitres per year and has Wallaby-proof perimeter fencing.
Nearing ten years the owners have been strategic and diligent with the care and regeneration of the land and it would be terrific to have a like-minded farmer continue on with their great work and reap the rewards. Corymbia Farm comes with so many unique possibilities and is perfect for those passionate about the natural world that surrounds them. What better way to live symbiotically with the land while supporting an income through eco-tourism or agri-tourism; a paddock-to-plate restaurant; vineyard; trufferie; an avocado or nut tree farm or B&B with farm stay!
