Peace and seclusion, sunshine and views, close to the water
Peace Haven is an historic seaside cottage at the very end of Simpsons Bay Road. Once the home of Captain Cliff Sward, the ferry captain who piloted the first government ferry from Hobart to Bruny Island, the cottage is close to the location of the original Simpsons Bay jetty, where ferries came alongside, bringing supplies from town and taking back the produce of the area - apples and berry fruits, timber and wool.
Lovingly and carefully maintained, Peace Haven retains all its heritage charm while benefiting from some significant infrastructure enhancements - rewiring, new roofing, new foundations and new rainwater tanks are among the recent improvements made by the present owner.
The views are superb - positioned on a sunny bank with a north-easterly aspect, the home looks across the bay to the Neck and beyond to Cape Queen Elizabeth. Peace and seclusion are assured - the house is located well past the boat ramp, which has the only turning area near the end of the no-through road.
The property is on two titles, with the smaller home block adjoining a larger piece of attractive land that includes two dams, pasture and mature eucalypts.
There are several large and practical farm sheds, netted vegetable beds and gardens and a secure dog-proof fenced lawn in front of the homestead.
Houses change hands infrequently in this quiet and private part of Bruny Island - this is an unusual opportunity to secure a unique holiday weekender, a short or long term rental property or a comfortable, permanent island home.
