Wow! Spacious Family Home Over 3 Levels, Set on 5 Acres Fully-fenced for Horses
Only 20 minutes to the Hobart CBD and 10 minutes from Kingston shopping centre and beach, we are offering for sale this 380 square metre family home set amongst 5 acres all fully electric fenced for horses and wallaby proofed boundaries.
As you enter through the front door the 'WOW' factor will hit you! High timber cathedral ceilings spanning across the entry, and delightful living and dining areas which overlook the entire property, create an amazing feeling of spaciousness. Between the living and dining area there is a cosy sitting area located in front of the combustion fireplace, this area being a favoured spot by family and pets during winter months.
Every room in this gorgeous home is large! The quality built brick and timber home was built by a builder originally for his own family - as such all areas are generously sized.
The main level also offers a fantastic country kitchen, walk-in pantry and quality appliances. The enormous bathroom is amazing and alongside is the separate WC. Moving back to the front of the home and off the entry is a large study/music/reading room with a delightful aspect. While the living, dining and study are all carpeted, the remaining areas on this main level all feature the rich warm colours of African slate floors.
From the entry, a staircase leads to the upper level. On the upper level there are three huge queen/king sized bedrooms all with built-ins. Cathedral ceilings are also features of these rooms and the upstairs bathroom. Polished timber floors are throughout the upper level. At the top of the staircase is a landing and balcony which overlooks to the living areas below not unlike you would find in a ski resort rocky mountain home or Swiss chalet, the home exudes warmth and comfort.
The lower level, accessed from internal stairs from the main level, takes you down to a number of enormous areas. A large rumpus (carpeted and with reverse cycle air conditioning is currently set up as a home theatre area and office area for a home-run business. Off this large room is a laundry and another carpeted room currently used as a guest bedroom / hobby room (with built-in shelving, hanging space). This whole area could easily be transformed into a separate teenager's retreat. Many possibilities here.
Still the home continues through another door from the rumpus area into an area of dry-storage which travels completely underneath the entire living, entry, study areas of the main level above. Concreted floor, shelving, a work bench, and oodles and oodles of storage! You will never be short of storage space in this home. Another storage area, previously used as a wine cellar travels off this room offering this space under the entire length of the front porch.
A back deck off the main level, overlooks a lovely valley view, the dam area, backyard and horse paddocks. A great BBQ/entertaining space and you will be amazed at the sunsets.
Outside the entire property has wallaby proof boundary fences and has been divided into electric fenced paddocks for horses. Currently there are four horses comfortably homed on this property. The paddocks are bushy cleared areas, and the horses are able to roam this paddock paradise with plenty of shelter offered to them by the amazing eucalypts and blackwood plantation trails. A peaceful rural setting. Birdlife is abundant and there are resident kookaburras, black yellow-tailed cockatoos, blue-wrens, eagles that soar above and many other calling sounds of birds so get your bird watching book out.
A lined driveway of rhododendrons, azaleas, and native Australian shrubs and plants planted throughout numerous rock gardens welcome visitors. The circular drive takes you around the chicken and vegetable central garden area, around the front of the home and back past a 3 bay carport, currently used for a vehicle space, hay shed and stable.
Another 4 bay farm shed on the other side of the entry driveway provides for storage of farming equipment, ride-on mower etc. Behind this is a levelled and gravelled area where easily a double or even triple garage could be erected. This area currently holds shipping containers for storage and a workshop, plus truck / caravan parking.
This property is private and situated on a no-through road so only residents and their guests will pass by your property. Neighbours are fantastic! This is an amazing community where all come together and just a half K down the road is the Longley International Hotel which offers a country dining experience, a chance to get involved with the locals and where you can relax on a Sunday afternoon and listen to great live entertainment.
