This rural retreat, situated in the heart of the East Tamar wine district, could be your very own peace of paradise, an easy thirty minutes drive from the city of Launceston.
Enveloped by 35 acres of tall timber bushland, is this private idyll, lush with an harmonious blend of established European plantings and fruit orchard, and complete with a gently flowing nearby creek. The tranquil tone of the property is set the moment you pass through the gate, where you are greeted by a rustic timber barn, set amongst a carpet of blooming blue Convolvulus.
The half-timber, half-brick chalet-style home consists of three storeys; the open plan living area and some bedroom accommodation can be found on the top two, designed to take advantage of the stunning views through the soaring Cathedral windows, that fill the home with light. On the ground floor is a very private Master Bedroom and Retreat, with it's own external (and internal) access, that is complete with a spa, spacious separate bathroom and dressing room, and a huge wood fire to relax by, immune from the chill of the Tasmanian winter. Due to the unique layout of this property, this part of the home could easily be used as Bed and Breakfast accommodation. With it's own access, and an alternate separate entry to the remainder of the property, the privacy and comfort of any guests could be easily be achieved without compromising your own. Additionally, there is also the potential for the adjacent studio/ workshop to be converted to guest accommodation. Likewise, the property as it is, would make the perfect place to while away the hours painting, or woodworking- the possibilities are endless.
The first floor features a spacious kitchen complete with walk-in pantry, dishwasher and two electric cook-tops. The open plan living area features honey-toned floorboards, a bespoke lead-light window, cosy wood-fire, and a balcony accessed by french doors that stretches the width of the upper floor to take in the fresh air. On this floor, are two of the five bedrooms, one with access to a private sun deck, and another bathroom.
The top floor of the home, accessed via a spiral staircase, features two more king-sized bedrooms, both with ample storage, a quaint pot-belly wood fire, and a mezzanine that overlooks the living area below, and out the Cathedral windows to the gardens and distant views.
