Feel like you're living at your own private luxury retreat every day….

In a time where working from home is more common, choosing this incredible property - on just over 14 acres of usable land - around 30 minutes drive from Hobart is easy when it comes to quality of life, fresh air and ample space for you and your family to enjoy both the indoors and outdoors. Perfect for entertaining and creating special family memories, the superb indoor heated pool, great views, huge shed with mezzanine, fenced land with its own bike tracks and pasture suitable for livestock, this unique and versatile property is a rare find!

Well set back from the road, a bitumen drive leads you up to the home where there is ample level parking, double carport, sheds and internal access via the double garage. Perched in the top corner of the land, the home and immediate surrounds overlook the beautiful undulating land it rests on, down the valley and beyond, towards Frederick Henry Bay and kunanyi/Mt Wellington. Captured from outside and inside this unique three-storey residence, the panoramic vista is one you would never tire of. The large deck upstairs is built to make the most of this aspect and views, with German engineered retractable outdoor blinds allowing for the deck to be fully enclosed when the weather is less agreeable. During summer when the sun floods the deck all afternoon, eventually setting behind kunanyi, the blinds can be adjusted with the sun, or fully closed, allowing the deck to be comfortably enjoyed in any season.

Designed with entertaining in mind and space galore, there is an impressive indoor heated automatic salt chlorinating pool featuring a gorgeous mural by renowned Tasmanian artist, Jamin. Stairs link this fabulous "playground" to the generous upstairs family room. A door connects this room to the open plan lounge, dining and kitchen space which has a real "Wow!" about it. Your eyes are immediately drawn up towards the beautiful exposed timber beams on the ceiling and the balcony that provides a preview of just how sizeable this home is.

The kitchen is so perfectly apt for this home with its Blackwood cupboards, granite benchtops, electric oven and six-burner gas stove in addition to the slow combustion stove which doubles as an alternative economic heating source for the hot water system. Double glazed windows and doors are fitted across this central living area and in the master bedroom - with ensuite - adding to this already energy efficient home and bringing the tranquil picturesque outdoors inside. Sliding doors open out to the level rear courtyard garden and huge alfresco dining area, undercover for year round use….set up as a garden oasis to compliment the 3-person spa which would be a welcome refuge on those cold winter nights. Stairs to the four upstairs bedrooms and main bathroom are every child's dream, like loft bedrooms but much bigger and with views! These stairs also lead downstairs to the rumpus which has been used as a studio space, romantically styled for Air b'n'b with it's own ensuite and sliding door entrance.

Multiple indoor and outdoor living areas ensure everyone has their own space whether you are entertaining guests or just need a larger family home.

For the hobby farmer or tradesperson, the outbuildings are impressive! The epic shed with lighting, power points, a mezzanine floor and benches throughout, is perfect for tinkering. There is also covered storage space either side, plus two additional smaller sheds…no shortage for storing and building "stuff".

Consideration has been taken into cost saving measures when it comes to running a larger home like this beauty. Over 60,000 litres of water storage across five tanks feed from the house and main shed, plus an irrigation system set up for most of the garden areas and pop-up sprinklers in the front lawn ensures your garden will flourish. Not stopping here, there are 27 solar panels that feed directly into the power supply and are used in real time with anything unused being returned as a credit on your power bill!

In the fully fenced, well-established gardens, you will benefit from the vast variety of herbs, berries, apples, and native edibles while enjoying an abundance of flora and fauna that also have the pleasure to call this location their home.

Ten minutes drive to Sorell where all you can find all you need from medical services, shopping centres, restaurants, take-aways, chemists, vet, schooling to agricultural and stock feed suppliers. This property is the ultimate in privacy, space and has potential for you to earn an income, whether you have dreams of becoming a hobby farmer or just want some space around with Air b'n'b income under the one roof!
