Outstanding properties of this quality and style come on the market very rarely

Architecturally-designed and magnificently located on 7.643 hectares of parkland that rolls down to a private corner of Barnes Bay, the north-facing home has a classic and timeless yet contemporary appeal, with its white walls, expansive indoor and outdoor living spaces, extensive glazing and landscaped gardens.

Accessed by a private driveway only a couple of minutes from the Roberts Point ferry terminal, the sun-drenched frontage of 'Rosebank' looks out over the sheltered anchorage of the same name. Large glass sliders open from the living areas and bedrooms to the full-length deck, with permanent sun umbrellas on the wide section in front of the central part of the house. There are walled gardens at the front and rear as well as a large lock-up garage with room for vehicles and storage, accessed either by remote-controlled door at the back or an internal passageway from inside the house. This spacious area could easily be converted into a comfortable, self contained one-bed studio for additional accommodation.

Inside, the spaces flow seamlessly between the modern kitchen and laundry with high-end appliances and the sensational living/dining/entertaining areas, all with unrestricted views down over grassy lawns to the water's edge and to the mountains beyond. Gleaming quarry-tiles with underfloor heating link all the spaces. The two large bedrooms, one at each end of the building and both with sparkling ensuites, take in the same impressive views.

The property has irrigation rights from a permanent dam on the neighbouring boundary, with garden watering provided by pump and underground piping. There is abundant rainwater storage in three large tanks and a mooring registered with MAST.

This remarkable house is a powerful statement of acclaimed architect Ray Heffernan's modernist design ethic, with its simplicity and strength of line and its sharp focus on light and space.

'Rosebank' is a very special example of Bruny Island living at its best - secluded and private, in touch with nature - a stylish waterfront haven in a location that is increasingly rare to find.
