About this listing
Comprising of 8.7 acres (3.55ha) of rolling green pastures with a dam, complete with your very own resident platypus. A private 165m2 chalet inspired home, a 6x6m shed, 3.5x5.5m hay store, stables, veggie garden enclosures and views out across the valley. Yes, this one has a lot on offer for the hobby farmer or the self-sufficient minded. Run some sheep and have a cow or two, grow your food and collect your eggs.

The house is very spacious including an open plan living, dining and kitchen. A wrap around verandah is accessed from here and provides a fantastic space to sit back and admire your property as well as the views out to the mountains in the distance. Right in the middle of the living, there is a central wood fire which doubles as a great pizza oven, creating warmth in the cooler months and a wonderful atmosphere. A reverse cycle air-conditioner provides the back-up and ensures comfort all year round.

On this level, there are 2 bedrooms with a family bathroom, laundry and separate toilet. Up the stairs is a mezzanine landing with commanding views over the living downstairs. The master bedroom is up here, with its own private balcony. There is a large walk-in-robe and a spacious ensuite to say the least. The ensuite has a separate shower, toilet and a spa that enjoys the valley views.

Attached is a car garage and storage room. A 6x6m shed provides more covered parking and great workshop space. Out the back is the hay and tractor shed. Pens with stables are practical if you want animals, and a chicken coop too. All 4 paddocks are fully fenced and can be electrified, rotate your stock to maintain good recovery growth in each paddock.

Fruit trees and netted vegie gardens will further assist with self-sufficiency. Rainfall is very good here with around 800-1000ml a year, collected from the roof into approximately 45,000L of rainwater tanks. Down in the fields, there is a dam with a pump for the gardens and stock troughs. With your own waste water system as well, you are completely self sufficient and no water rates.

Positioned between the cultural centre of Cygnet and the picturesque channel-side Woodbridge, this property is both practical and offers an idyllic country lifestyle. Hobart CBD is around 45 minutes away and Huonville or Kingston are under 30 minutes. Please contact us anytime for further information or to arrange a private inspection on site.
