Privacy, Convenience and a little bit of East Coast Magic
This two storey sandstone brick home, on an allotment of just over an acre, is sited just north of the picturesque seaside town of Orford, on the beautiful East Coast of Tasmania. In a quiet and friendly area, the vista encompasses Spring Bay, the Mercury Passage to Maria Island and the steady flotilla of craft that travel past on the way in and out of the port of Triabunna. A popular tourist and holiday destination, Orford sees many visitors enjoy the stunning scenery, safe beaches, excellent fishing, modern boating facilities, the protected waters of the marina and gives access to some of the best ocean fishing Tasmania has to offer. Boat moorings are available at Louisville and Triabunna.
The feeling inside the property is one of relaxed ambience. The home has a functional layout and is perfect for entertaining the whole family. Large panoramic windows catch the Maria Island sunrise which floods the living areas with morning sunlight. There is a spacious open plan kitchen and dining area, separate lounge and large laundry. The accommodation consists of two bedrooms, both with WIR and ensuite bathroom. An attic with six foot clearance and flooring could be developed further.
There is ramp access at the rear of the home and the ground floor, currently utilised as a workshop with spare utility room and could easily be transformed into a rumpus, family room or self contained living quarters with opportunity to provide a return from an Airbnb type project (STCA) with tourism accommodation in mind.
The property is private, semi landscaped with large grassed areas and has dual access with sweeping bitumen driveways that lead down to the home and an additional 12m x 8m lock up garage/workshop that provides a practical work area with fully functional car hoist and three phase power. The land is fully fenced and is secure for family pets and small children.
In one of the best presented and most exclusive locations on the East Coast, close to popular beaches, the Orford Golf and Bowls Clubs and just five minutes drive from Orford or Triabunna town centres, which host the usual amenities and a choice of restaurants, 48 Bernacchi Drive represents great value, a fantastic opportunity for the investor or those who just want a sea change; this property deserves your attention. Just over one hour to Hobart CBD, fifty-five minutes to Hobart airport and thirty minutes to Swansea. Will suit semi-retirees.
