4.3 hectares

Heritage links and environmental values - a rare combination

From its establishment by the Young family as a mixed farm in the early 1900s, the 'Nebraska' property at Dennes Point provided fruit, meat and milk for the small communities of North Bruny Island for many decades. Its orchards produced pears that were acclaimed as among the finest in the country. Long-time Dennes Point residents have fond memories of walking along each morning to the little shed on Nebraska Road and filling a billy with fresh, frothy, creamy milk from the farmer's churn. The Youngs were a wealthy seafaring family and they named their property after an early steamship that passed through the D'Entrecasteaux Channel before berthing in the port of Hobart. Today the residents of Killora can enjoy the community cafe and art gallery at Dennes Point.

A premium section of the 'Nebraska' property, overlooking the waters of the Channel, is now offered for sale. Covering an area of 4.3 hectares (10.6 acres), the land has private access from Killora Road. With a westerly aspect, there is all - day sunshine and outstanding views above the picturesque rocky shoreline and sandy cove tucked in amongst the sandstone cliffs, only a few minutes away.

The land has a variety of significant natural values. It supports an impressive stand of magnificent ancient grass trees (Xanthorrhoea australis). Native birds and animals are abundant. In the forested areas, stands of white gums provide habitat for rare and threatened 40-spotted pardalotes, while swift parrots gather to feed in the canopy of flowering eucalypts. Wedge-tail eagles and white-bellied sea eagles soar overhead, and wallabies, spotted quolls and echidnas are commonly seen.

The current owner of this section is an international wine industry identity and produces the unique Killora Cove wines from the maritime influenced Nebraska Vineyard, located on his adjoining farm. He has agreed to present a customised and engraved limited edition of the 2018 Pinot Noir to the successful purchaser to celebrate their own acquisition of a piece of Bruny Island history.

This a rare opportunity to acquire part of one of the foremost early farming properties on North Bruny Island. It is a parcel of land that combines historical connections with environmental values - a wonderful place on which to build a unique and special coastal homestead.
