Discover this rare gem in Grove
Nestled in the foothills of the Wellington Park/Kunanyi Reserve, on a leisurely drive down a country road, round a bend, and there you'll find this delightful property in tightly held Grove.
Home to Willie Smith's Apple Shed, and with a population of around 500, Grove, with it's own general store, is a village you just won't want to leave.
Grove was founded in the early 1800's and was originally a farm property named Grove Estate. Enjoy the leafy surrounds and majestic splendour of Sleeping Beauty, comprising Collins Bonnet and Trestle Mountain, as the village backdrop.
And yes, the current owners are reluctant to move, however a new venture means a change of scenery.
This sweet family home, aptly named "bel far niente", which is Italian for "the beauty of doing nothing", comes beautifully presented to the market. Nothing to do but move in and unpack, you'll be sitting back enjoying your very own country views in no time at all.
Recently refurbished, with new carpet and tiles, new downlights and window treatments, this home has also been freshly painted inside.
The north facing living area, has large windows for passive solar heating, as well as a woodheater so you'll be toasty and warm this winter. Boasting a new gas cooktop, oven and rangehood the modern kitchen will delight the cook in your family. You'll be welcoming friends and family to your new home with delicious comfort food.
The main bedroom, with built in wardrobes, has access to the spacious two way bathroom/laundry, that has shower, toilet, bidet and built in cupboards. The bathroom/laundry is located close to the other two bedrooms, and near the back door. So very handy for when you're coming in from a day in the garden, or bushwalking with the family.
Wander outside and you'll discover the delights of the gardens and grounds.
Fully landscaped, with established freshly mulched garden beds containing roses and rhododendrons, as well as trees and shrubs, the current owners have created private beautiful spaces to sit, relax and enjoy the birdlife.
In a separate fenced area, there is a mini orchard of existing fruit trees. You'll also find a potting shed, perfect for potting up your cuttings, or getting those bulbs and seedlings ready for spring planting. All this and more on a 1776m2 block.
There's also paved entertaining area for hosting lazy Sunday brunches. The property is fully fenced so children and pets can run and play while you're enjoy good company and sharing good food. The large lock up shed, with extra wood storage area, also has room for a vehicle, storage for motor bikes, mountain bikes, and gym equipment.
Grove is the perfect location to explore local river streams, mountain bike trails with the kids, and walks with the family dog. Conveniently situated close to both Huonville and Kingston townships and only 35 mins to Hobart.
