Rarely does the opportunity arise to purchase a piece of Tasmanian North West Coast History. We are honoured to bring to the market, this magnificent 1899 heritage homestead. Lovingly renovated and maintained inside and out during at least its 122-year history, situated on approx. 1.5 acres with sprawling established and low maintenance gardens, pool house, massive garage and workshop and views along the coast, this home offers a nostalgic and prestige lifestyle that must be experienced to be believed.
Drive down the tree lined driveway, admire the impressive trees including 2 Norfolk Island Pines standing sentinel in the fully fenced yard, take note of the expansive veranda, gable roof, rose gardens, red brick paths. Now take a deep breath of the fresh country air and enter through the grand front door where you are greeted by a home that is welcoming, fresh, and sunlit with twelve-foot ceilings, classic archway, Tasmanian timber dados, moulded cornices, ceiling roses and polished hardwood flooring.
There are 6 very generous bedrooms plus a retreat-style bedroom (3.8x7.8), an optional 7th bedroom. The heart of the home is the expansive formal lounge with north-facing bay windows, the fresh country style kitchen with Caesarstone benchtops and a dining room and sunroom, which all have magnificent picture windows showcasing the manicured garden, rolling hills and sea views. With a northerly aspect, the home captures the sun all day and is heated with dual air-conditioners, wall panel heaters, plus open woodfires for romance and ambience. There are 2 bathrooms, one as an ensuite and the other with direct access to the retreat bedroom. There is a separate laundry and floor to ceiling linen press, along with a mudroom with entry from the back veranda.
In keeping with the federation architecture, the recently completed renovation of the bedroom retreat, which could also be a studio, has a gabled blackwood ceiling featuring the original beams, hardwood floors and arched windows and French doors facing the pool house.
The flat grounds surrounding the home feature a separate pool house constructed with a celery top pine interior, with French doors opening onto the sun deck. The pool is solar/ozone treated and is a fabulous way to enhance and enjoy your Tasmanian country lifestyle. The pool house is attached to a double garage with room for 4 vehicles or perhaps the boat or to be used as a large workshop plus there is a mezzanine/loft for the hobbyist and extra storage.
Low maintenance established cottage gardens are filled with over 120 plant varieties, trees, roses, spring bulbs and perennials surrounded by maintained lawns and locally made brick wandering paths make this property ideal or families seeking that tranquil extra space.
