Access via turnoff to Dennes Point
Family home in a quiet location close to jetty and boat ramp.
This comfortable and attractively-presented home is located in a quiet position on a no-through road near the Barnes Bay jetty, which was once the landing point of an earlier Bruny Island ferry service.
Freshly-painted throughout, the white Colorbond-clad dwelling has a versatile layout, featuring two living areas, three bedrooms, all with attractive garden views, bathroom, separate laundry and a galley-style kitchen with bench and storage space. The kitchen adjoins a sunny living/dining/study area on one side, with corner wood heater, large windows and full-height glass doors that open to the entry terrace. Exposed timber beams are appealing features in the main living area while off the other side of the kitchen there are polished floorboards in the family room, with French doors to an open deck. The single carport includes a lockable storage area.
Outside, two mature eucalypts provide shade and shelter over the front lawn. At the rear there's a protected garden patch. There is plenty of rainwater storage for house and garden.
A grassed walkway at the side of the house gives right of way pedestrian access to the protected shoreline of Simmonds Bay - this is the place to have a dinghy or kayak pulled up on the bank. If you need to launch a bigger craft, the excellent Barnes Bay boat ramp is close by.
Barnes Bay is only about 15 minutes from the ferry terminal at Roberts Point so this property is within easy reach of the city as a weekender or tourism investment property. A special benefit is that the property is fully licensed for visitor accommodation and has recently generated income as a successful tourism business. Alternatively, it could be an ideal, quiet and private permanent island residence.
