Magnificent island lifestyle property with a tiny-home in a sensational position!
This superlative property offers an appealing combination of quality grazing land and impressive mature native forest, along with an off-grid tiny-home on a trailer, set in an elevated position with unrivalled views over Cloudy Bay Lagoon and beyond to the Southern Ranges.
Accessed by driveway and track from Cloudy Bay Road, the property is only a few minutes’drive from the famous surf breaks of Cloudy Bay – you can actually hear the waves crashing on the beach from where the tiny-home sits, high up on the land.
All the work has been done here – there have been significant and extensive upgrades since the property was last sold in 2018. Most significantly, an extra 15 hectares have been added, more than doubling the size of the property from the previous 11 hectares to almost 27 hectares. The additional section of the land enjoys magnificent views of the lagoon and mountains. The property has been recently fenced internally and externally to a high standard with wallaby-proof wire, a good gravel driveway and road entrance has been built and there’s a near-new three-bay Colorbond shed as well as the tiny-home. The roof of the 6x12m shed is reinforced to support future solar panels. The current owner has grazed alpacas and llamas on the northern section of the land and there are two dams and shelter sheds for livestock.
Separating the pasture land from the site of the tiny-home is a shelter belt of native trees and bush, which runs up into beautiful native forest, a haven for wildlife and native birds on the higher western slopes of the property. As you pass through to the other side of the shelter belt, a splendid view opens up to the south and west – the lagoon, the spit behind Cloudy Beaches, the southern entrance of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and the summits of Mt La Perouse and Pindars Peak on the distant skyline.This is the chosen location for the tiny-home and it could be a superb building site for a substantial permanent dwelling.
The professionally-crafted tiny-home, built by Little Latitude Homes in Cygnet, offers 24 sqm of living space. The clever design includes a bedroom with queen bed, living area with sofa/day bed, kitchen/dining area and bathroom with shower and composting toilet, creating a compact, cosy and comfortable getaway.
There is solar power via batteries and 240v inverters, solar hot water for bathroom, kitchen and heating radiators, as well as diesel back-up. You can see the house in the photo gallery at www.littlelatitudehomes.com.au. Look for the photos from 59 onwards.
Little Latitude Homes builds one tiny-home at a time in their Cygnet factory. Each tiny-home is constructed to the unique specifications of the owner. The company does not list prices because every project is different, however they say that a turn-key tiny-home cannot be completed for under $100,000. The owner of the tiny-home on 661 Cloudy Bay Road has spent considerably more than this figure by specifying the inclusion of a range of special features to ensure very comfortable and totally functional off-grid living.
