About this listing
Rarely do you get the opportunity to find a property that offers the benefit of personal access to the Huon River reserve in complete privacy and a renovated, character filled, period home as well. Up in behind is a separate studio, workshop, boat port and veggie garden. In addition, this property is located just out of the hub of the Huon Valley near Huonville and boarders with Woodstock. The overall land consists of 14 acres (5.685ha) with 2 separate fenced paddocks for animals. There is a section of native bush on the back paddock and the bonus of beautiful wetlands across the road with a large cleared area along the river reserve for picnics by the river and easy access to pop in the kayaks.

The gorgeous home is clearly loved by its current owner and presents beautifully. The lounge room and kitchen/dining both face north with access out to a lovely partly covered split level deck that soaks up the sunshine. From here the views are straight up the valley with Mt Sleeping Beauty as a central focus. This is a section of the Mount Wellington Range in the shape of a lady reclining... very beautiful. The deck wraps around to the front verandah to the main entry. Through the front door, you enter into the ornate hallway, inviting you into the home. There are 3 good sized bedrooms each with their own intriguing views. High ceilings create a wonderful sense of space and light fills the rooms providing a bright and airy feel. There are open fireplace features and sash windows maintain the authenticity of the era.

Once at the end of the hallway, you turn into the lounge, which has a feature window that perfectly frames the view of Sleeping Beauty, just like a live painting on the wall. This space is cosy and kept snug in the cooler months with a built-in wood fire. A reverse cycle air-conditioner will keep you comfortable all year round. The lounge opens out to the kitchen/dining, providing a wonderful flowing floorplan and great connectivity between the living space and the kitchen. French doors open out to the covered deck, wonderfully drawing the outside into the home. The kitchen is classic for the period, and has a lovely country farmhouse feel to it, perfectly completed with a 900mm stainless steel gas cooker.

Out the back, a separate studio is invaluable. This is a great space to house visiting guests, get creative with whatever hobby you've been wanting to take up or could make a great space if you are working from home. The studio is kept warm with its own free standing wood fire and also enjoys a sundeck that overlooks the veggie garden and provides a great spot to sit back and admire the charm of the home. Attached is the workshop. There is an internal door from the studio and a large sliding door from the boat port, cleverly made to look like the wall of the workshop. In the boat port, there is room for 2 cars and the kayaks. A second carport is down by the house for practicality.

The veggie garden is smartly positioned. The water collected from the roof of the studio/workshop is collected just at the top of the garden, allowing for gravity irrigation. There is a hot house for the tomatoes, followed by a huge amount of succulent raspberries. With easy access from the house, you'll be able to pop out and grab your fresh produce and herbs as you are cooking. Down the front, the chickens have their home and will provide you with fresh eggs too. Well fenced, the paddocks are ideal for a cow or 3 or maybe a couple of horses as is the case with the current owners. The house yard is also well fenced and to protect from the wildlife. A stroll up the back or down to the river will provide you with wildlife spotting opportunities. Another great benefit of this property is despite being in a rural setting, it is connected to town water.
