Multiple ideas for this acreage opportunity that is currently in use as a cabin park and function centre combined with the beautiful federation home that has been lovingly restored. On the waterfront of Ralphs Bay and across the road from the RSL club and golf course this approximately 60 acres (23.09 ha) of level land has a wonderful position offering all day sun in a sheltered area.
Only 35 minutes from Hobart and on the Metro government bus service this property would suit a group purchase or maybe just you and your lucky family and friends. I have thought of many potential uses just for this incredible real estate package. I've thought of private schools, organisations, university, health resorts, retirement home, special needs, agricultural pursuits, pet food business and pet accommodation or a horse ranch. Imagine weekend camp overs and miles of beaches and the Tangara horse trails to ride, tourism ventures of all kinds, boutique vineyard cafe and accommodation, a wildlife zoo, vegetable growers, ideal for purple garlic, pink eye potatoes, truffles, avocados, fruit orchards etc or just a hobby farm with a few cows, sheep, pigs and chooks.
Excellent fencing provides separated paddocks if you are looking for livestock or horse suitability, there are existing sheds and garages, corral and crush are all suited.
The current use with five modern cabins with the superb old apple shed as the quirky function centre is a great business in itself and is situated a good distance away from the home and could be run without your involvement if you wish.
I have also considered that if five people wanted a holiday home and bought a cabin each, with equal shares in the whole property, they could rent out the house and land separately. The cabins can also be rented out when not in use by the owner.
Weddings and other functions are becoming very popular using the big character function room and guests able to stay at the five cabins. There is room to accommodate big tents and caravans too. I can vouch for the function room as my band has played there and it's a fabulous party venue, everybody had a great time and camped overnight.
The function room has an undercover area off, with barbecue facilities and kitchen plus an amenities building opposite with shower, toilet vanity and laundry.
Note this next stage of development would be to continue to build more cabins (which has had approval) and to build a larger amenities building with toilets and showers for campervan's caravans and tents. This is an area very popular for recreation, surfing, kayaking mountain bikes, fishing or trail walking. Just in front of the property is a very good flounder fishing area and you can walk to the surf beach and nearby fishing areas.
The position of this property is opposite the RSL community club which has meals seven days a week. There is also a very nice golf course open to the public.
South Arm is also on the government bus services to Hobart (at the gate) and has a local primary school, pharmacy, caf, gym, hair salon, general store and post office is about 15 minutes level walk away.
This property may have future subdivision opportunities.
South Arm is only 35 minutes to Hobart city or the airport. Ideas like a retirement village and doctor surgery have merit, but of course most things are subject to council approval if outside current zoning usages. My expectation of this properties value is over $2 million and at that price, a property with a good future.
