Property Description

Cosy, compact and comfortable cottage, short walk to the beach

This charming little Bruny beach house overlooks Crown land with secure views through trees over the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and across the water to Tinderbox.

Named Inspirations' by the first owner, it has been a successful AirBnB for some time. Solidly-built by a local professional artisan builder in 2006, it sits comfortably on the land and somehow feels like it's been there much longer, with its vertical Tas oak board-and-batten cladding; repurposed windows and doors; polished hardwood floors; and white-painted, exposed beams in the vaulted ceilings.

At the sunny west-facing front of the house there's a good-sized, fully-covered deck, which is accessed by French doors from the living area as well as the bedroom.

The galley kitchen has a mini-oven, fridge, deep ceramic sink and timber benches. In the bathroom is a clawfoot bath, shower and another deep handbasin.

Outside, a short path leads to the composting toilet, which is a commercial standard Nature Loo installation with solar-powered extraction fan. Composting systems like this have environmental benefits including major water-saving, an important consideration on this part of Bruny Island.

The house is fully insulated in ceiling, walls and floor. There are three rainwater tanks and a separate storage shed. There is ample space under the house to store kayaks and beach gear.

In front of the cottage is a section of Crown land, which is curiously still listed on the title under the name of Captain James Kelly, the 19th century whaler, farmer, explorer and entrepreneur who was the first European land owner on North Bruny. There's a short walking track down through this land and across Nebraska Road to the beach and the water.

Dennes Point's popular caf� and art gallery are within walking distance and the cottage is only 25 minutes from the ferry terminal at Roberts Point.

This appealing Bruny Island property is offered for sale at a very reasonable price. Call Jen or Jude to arrange a visit.
