This gently sloping 6.8 acre northeast facing property enjoys picturesque valley views and the opportunity to further develop the perfect retreat. With good quality fertile land and a prime sunny elevated position, there are numerous possibilities for your new life in the country, just 45 minutes from Hobart.
The Stratco Homesteads Colorbond shed, 12.3 metres long by 7 metres wide, is divided into two rooms, and can be used as a temporary dwelling subject to council approval. Plans to upgrade this to a comfortable 2-3 bedroom dwelling have commenced, with the onsite wastewater management system design complete, or it is ideal to provide short term accommodation while you build. The shed has two roller doors, one access door, windows all round to provide plenty of sunlight, and a wood heater that will keep you warm all year. Power has been connected, and 11,500 and 14,500 litre rain water tanks have been installed.
This spacious property gives you the opportunity to be self-sufficient in developing a productive vegetable garden to go with a variety of fruit trees currently growing in an enclosure, shared with the chickens. A second large shed (6 by 3 metres), a small shed (3 by 3 metres) and a small polytunnel, add even more opportunities for the handyman and gardener. A stand of native trees is also located at the back of the property.
Geeveston, a few minutes drive from the property, is a small township nestled in the lower reaches of the scenic Huon Valley, with a strong apple growing and forestry heritage. The Heritage Centre caters for travellers exploring the nearby forests, Tahune Air Walk, Hartz Mountains National Park, and Picton and Huon rivers. The local Kermandie River is famous for platypus sightings, and the nearby Kermandie Hotel and marina present more opportunities for dining and recreation.
The good selection of shops and businesses in Geeveston include Home Hardware, an IGA supermarket, Bendigo Bank, local butcher, pharmacy, bakery, two petrol stations (one selling award winning pies), and several cafes/restaurants. Stop in Geeveston on Friday or Saturday for some of the best sushi in the country, made by master sushi maker Masaaki.
