On the Water’s Edge
As you drive to the end of the quiet cul-de-sac and enter the elegant gated entry way, you know you are arriving at a special place. With over three acres of gently sloping riverfront land, part of it dedicated to a hobby farm of 600+ espalier cherry orchard fully netted plus other fruit trees & apiary. The environment is one of total peace, tranquillity and yet the property is no more than 20 minutes from the centre of Hobart.
The elegant home’s architectural style is timeless and distinctive whilst offering extensive river views from most areas of the home. Appealing both inside and out, the wrap-around veranda compliments the character of the home’s façade flawlessly and is the perfect place to enjoy the water views, whatever the weather.
A variety of casual and formal living areas allow generations to live harmoniously together and enjoy their own space as well as together times. Ideal for entertaining, the formal living and dining room features beautiful Tasmanian oak floorboards, high ceilings with ornate ceiling rose all framed with the spectacular River Derwent in the background.
For family time, there is a truly generous open plan living area that is the heart of the home, making this the perfect companionable space. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, renovated in 2016 with top range cooking appliances, featuring glass splash backs and granite benches, and a fabulous butler’s pantry that will be the subject of envy. Leading off this space is a smaller room ideal for an art-room or studio with the views of the ever-changing water providing a lovely backdrop for inspiration.
The entire upper level offers the indulgence of a substantial parent’s retreat with a dressing room complete with extensive wardrobes, sitting area or nursery, private ensuite and home office. Each bedroom downstairs is well-sized with built in wardrobes and easily access the large family bathroom, helping everyone get out on time of a morning.
A large covered pergola with gothic pizza oven and wood storage area and expansive sundeck with stunning views offer choice in outdoor entertaining. The home is fully insulated with ducted air, ceiling heat exchanger and heat pumps to ensure the home is comfortable all year round.
The remote controlled double garage has ample space, work bench & large storage shelving and opens directly into the home. Two large versatile storage/work sheds will appeal; one offers a kitchen, cool room, hydro washer for the fruit and ample storage shelving.
This is a forever home, offering an incredible lifestyle opportunity. A stroll through the grounds will take you to the riverfront reserve where you can walk, go fishing, launch your kayak/ canoe or just enjoy the uninterrupted views & wildlife, which is plentiful.
