The Secret Garden

What a gem this property is - with space to move and grow in privacy and seclusion, thanks to the thoughtfully planted trees that have grown to envelop this mature and meticulously-planted garden.
The sturdy brickboard cottage is at the end of an internal driveway, right across from the beach. Entry is through a bright and warm sunroom, which filters sunlight into the main living space and the new kitchen, with views over the gardens. A wood heater makes this a very cosy and bright living area. There is a separate dining room and bedroom adjoining this main living space, making it the true heart of the home.
You also have the option of entering through the utility area, which brings outdoor living inside via paved flooring, a wheel chair accessible boardwalk and entry to the garden. This would be a fantastic alfresco area, indoor garden room or extra living space.
The bathroom and shower rooms are big enough for the entire family, making this a convenient way to wash off after a day at the beach or in the garden.
There is loads of extra room to make this property what you want and suitable to your needs. Extra bedroom or two? Living area? Bathroom or master suite (STCA)? A lot of work has already been undertaken, making these possibilities an easy transition.
The cottage and established gardens are fully fenced, convenient for keeping those you want inside and those you don't want outside. The extra acreage flows from here, and comprises native bushland, a large dam and an amazing abundance of native wildlife and birds. Having the extra land to develop or add to the original property (STCA) makes this a very appealing opportunity.
There is a remarkable assortment of native and exotic trees and plants, many rare species, as well as a greenhouse, fernery and large protected veggie gardens waiting to be planted with your choice of nourishment.
Summer evenings under the wisteria-covered arbour, while the breeze floats through will be one of many unforgettable Bruny experiences. You'll enjoy harvests from your own crops, fish from the nearby D'Entrecasteaux Channel, bouquets of fresh flowers every other day - but mainly, the relaxed lifestyle typical of Bruny Island!
