79.69 hectares

Absolutely faultless perfect presentation, magnificent views

From its commanding position high on a hillside near the township of Alonnah on South Bruny Island, this remarkable property has an unmatched view field over farmland, vineyards, the wide waters of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and the distant mountains beyond.

The stylish and contemporary near-new dwelling has a sunny north-westerly aspect from its location on the western side of the substantial parcel of land, which is just under 80 hectares (198 acres) in area. About a third of the property is pasture, with the balance comprising impressive mature native forest, which is protected under a conservation covenant. Native wildlife and birdlife are both abundant - more than 50 species of birds, including Tasmanian endemic species such as swift parrots and 40 spotted pardalotes can be observed. Fencing is excellent across the entire property, defining the conservation zones from the pastured areas.

Every aspect of the property is faultless, from the meticulously presented three-bedroom/two bathroom home with its spotless adjacent 112 square metre three-car garage, workshop and studio apartment; to the enclosed 500 sqm food garden and orchard, with its solar-powered electric fencing and dedicated irrigation system.

The owners, who purchased the land and built the home in 2017, have spared no expense in their desire to create perfection in a 21st century country house. They have achieved a simply immaculate result.

In these few paragraphs it's impossible to do justice to the uncompromising quality and unique character of the home. There are high-end fixtures, fittings, finishes and furniture throughout. The list of impressive features is too long to include in full here (we can provide serious potential purchasers with a detailed inventory) but as an example of the attention to detail that the owners have lavished on the home, some of the highlights include:

• Double-glazed windows and external doors
• Tasmanian Oak flooring
• Fully insulated floors, walls and ceilings
• Hardwood decks front and rear
• Two heat pump systems
• Floor heating in ensuite and main bathroom.
• Large capacity hot water system with recirculation pump
• Miele kitchen appliances and double Hafele pantry
• NBN satellite internet and VAST television service
• Oversize Aerated Wastewater Treatment System
• Backup Honda 3.6kW generator for emergency power
• 90,000 litre rainwater storage with triple water filter and UV sterilisation system
• 10,000 litre rain water tank and electric pressure pump dedicated to the garden area
• Diesel-powered firefighting pump and dedicated 10,000 litre firewater tank
• Fire suppression system with diesel motor and fixed sprinklers covering the house

Adjacent to the home is a separate 112 square metre three-car garage and workshop, with a fully self-contained one-bedroom studio apartment, all built, fitted-out and finished to the same exemplary standard as the main building with double glazed windows and extensive insulation.

The 80-hectare property is zoned Rural Resource. If re-zoned as Rural Living, it is large enough to give a new owner the opportunity to subdivide into two or three blocks, subject to Council approval. A sensitively-planned subdivision would have no impact on the visual amenity or privacy of either the existing home or other future dwellings on a second or third separate title.

The property offers a range of potential uses including short-stay accommodation. Agricultural activities could range from grazing to viticulture or horticulture, irrigated from the large dam on a permanent water course.

As well as ensuring spectacular views, the elevated position of the home creates a pleasing sense of seclusion, although the shops and services of Alonnah are only a few minutes' drive away. The ferry terminal at Roberts Point is a comfortable journey of 30 minutes.

The property is offered for sale fully-furnished on a walk-in, walk-out basis. If the purchaser wishes, an extensive range of farm machinery and tools can be negotiated as an additional component of the sale. The items are all in excellent condition and include (among many others) the following:

• ASV RC 100 rubber-tracked loader with air-conditioned cab and many
accessories (bucket, rippers, forks, auger, smudge bar, slasher)
• CONTAX ride-on mower
• Canam HV 5 ATV, 2017 model
• HAFCO metal lathe
• Two containers for machinery storage at the rear of the garage.
• Honda EU 30 i.s. generator for power systems back up.
• High pressure spit water cleaner with Honda engine
• Stihl chainsaw and brushcutter

Properties of this scope and quality are rare anywhere. This is an absolute gem - a perfect example of a contemporary Australian country retreat and an ideal place to live the Bruny Island life in unparalleled style and comfort.
