This substantial property embodies the perfect combination of rolling pastures, lakeside forests and established gardens.

Sitting just shy of 85 acres, this lakeside property offers everything one could ever need in a country abode. A unique strawbale dwelling with a northern aspect nestled within extensive established orchard, vegetable and ornamental gardens. Included on the property is a 50 acre covenanted private forest reserve teeming with towering manferns and the endangered Forth River Peppermint.

The architecturally inspired home was completed to engineers standards in 2012 and is the perfect showcase for the stunning local timbers and the local Tasmanian artisans that shaped them. It boasts an ideal low ecological footprint yet high insulation value due to the thick strawbale walls encased within a breathable earth and lime render. This is only enhanced with the pure wool batts in the floor and ceiling.

The 3.5kw solar system with 24v battery storage provides ample power to enable the running of all usual electrical appliances. The property has new lithium batteries and upgrading with eight more solar panels. The 3 water tanks totalling 275,000 litres mean you will never run out of water. Hot water is obtained from a large evacuated tube solar hot water system or via a 'wet back' on the modern wood combustion stove. Any excess hot water is then used via the hydronic heating throughout the polished concrete floor keeping you cosy in winter. A small coop on the property provides a lifetime supply of timber for the stove.

This one of a kind dwelling contains:
- Open plan kitchen, dining and lounge boasting granite bench tops with Tasmanian oak cupboards and drawers built by a local artisan.
- The high ceilings and extensive use of windows gives plenty of light and a sense of space.
- Cooking is performed on a gas stove or the wood stove.
- Three bedrooms.
- Two bathrooms and a separate toilet.
- A separate laundry.
- A large walk in pantry to process and store all your home grown produce.
- Large loft and storage areas.
- A number of french doors opening onto decks on three sides of the property where you can enjoy the stunning vistas from sunrise to sunset.
- Several other rustic outbuildings, some having been used as accommodation.
- Double carport.

The property itself contains:
- Approximately 5 acres of ornamental and vegetable gardens with direct access from the kitchen. This borders a large productive orchard and chicken run, all surrounded by a high electric fence to protect from the native wildlife.
- The Badger Box reserve with an extensive water front has a circular walking track which accesses Lake Cethana. One is able to go boating, fishing and swimming on the lake. Platypus, sea eagles and wedge tailed eagles are often seen in this area, as well as other native Tasmanian flora and fauna.
- The property is situated near the centre of Lorinna which is a small and active community, totally off the grid. It has a well utilised community hall, sports court, a twice weekly food cooperative, active Buddhist retreat and a collection of interactive homeschooling families.
Lorinna is approximately 1 hour from both Devonport and Cradle Mountain and 40 minutes from Sheffield.

Note: This property has been owned under the present ownership since the year 2000. The discrepancies on the property search are due to the purchasing by the same owners of reserve roads running through the property in 2003 and the purchase of crown land adjoining the property in 2015. These have meant a change to the title but there has been no change of ownership and the house and infrastructure have been built by the current owners.
