Bushland seclusion on South Bruny
This gently-sloping bush block of 14.9 hectares (36.8 acres) is located in an elevated position, well above Lighthouse Road on South Bruny Island. Access to the land is from Whalebone Way, a narrow, gravel no-through road that winds its way up into the hills from the shores of Little Taylors Bay. The property is just a few minutes away from the famed surf breaks at the entrance of Cloudy Bay Lagoon. Great waves at Mabel Bay and Lighthouse Bay are a little further on.
The mature forest provides habitat for a rich variety of native species including birds that are endemic to Tasmania such as 40 spotted pardalotes and swift parrots.
The current owner has placed a Conservation Covenant on the land in order to protect the abundant native wildlife and birdlife. The terms of the covenant specifically allow a new owner to clear a two-hectare (4.94 acre) Domestic Zone, so there is ample space for a building envelope.
There is good clear access to the block along the western boundary, adjacent to the neighbouring landowner's new wallaby-proof fencing. If the Domestic Zone could be established part-way into this part of the block from the cleared boundary, it should be possible to achieve very attractive views over farmland to the water and mountains beyond.
This property will appeal to a new owner who values and appreciates the privilege of being responsible for protecting the majority of the land as a covenanted reserve for wildlife, while still being able to sensitively create a space for a bushland dwelling in a quiet, private and secluded setting.
