A unique opportunity to acquire over 50 acres of land with three dwellings only 20 minutes from Hobart CBD.
This property is a home, investment and lifestyle all in one. The improvements are situated on a completely private allotment in excess of 50 acres overlooking Kingston, Derwent River and the native landscape with expansive views to the horizon.
The main house was constructed in 1992 sympathetic to its rich environment using Concrete Stabilised Earth Blocks (Made by Middle Earth Constructions, Evandale, Tasmania) & Western Red Cedar with a footprint of 218m2 over one level. The home has a wood-heater, underfloor heating and solar panels ensuring the home is kept temperate year round. A significant portion of the land has been landscaped with multiple established gardens, a nursery currently growing specialised plants and undercover parking. The home has a large deck wrapping around the property to capture the view.
The property features a stand alone cottage constructed in 2008 and open plan studio. The cottage would be ideal for a live-in care-taker or manager of the property, or alternatively to provide separate spaces for families who reside on the same property.
This property has an underground water bore producing up to 1,000 litres of water per day. The water is safe to drink and is a significant asset for anyone looking to undertake agricultural activities. The water bore accompanies 5 dams on the property, 2 x 10,000 gallon rainwater tanks and 2 x 2,000 gallon water tanks. Summerleas Road also has a back-up generator for electricity if required. This home allows the owner to live self-sufficiently with substantial infrastructure in place to do so. In the past is in excess of $40K per annum (net) through Airbnb, other rentals and plant sales. Both the accommodation and nursery have been operated part time, therefore the maximum potential income has not been realised.
Spotted Quolls, Tasmanian Devils, Wedge Tailed Eagles and numerous native plants and animal species share the land with the current owners. Summerleas Road is a unique property embodying Tasmania and its natural habitat.
