66 hectares

The Homestead Blocks

When the world returns to some kind of normality, we believe there will be strong demand for properties that offer privacy and seclusion in a pristine natural environment - places to establish a sustainable lifestyle, enjoying the benefits of clean air, pure water and fertile soil.

The various lots of 777 Cloudy Bay Road are excellent examples of this kind of land, with their features including substantial size (from 11.6 to 66 hectares), superlative views, outstanding building sites, rich pastures, native forest and close proximity to wild and remote surf beaches.

Most of the lots are now either under contract or under offer - only three remain available for purchase.

These are the last few parcels of quality land on the market in the highly sought-after Cloudy Bay area. Land like this is very unlikely to be offered for sale in the foreseeable future.

A particularly exciting possibility is the rare potential to secure an unbroken chain of contiguous blocks, by purchasing all the lots with frontage to Cloudy Bay Road, creating a magnificent and unique holding of around 113 hectares (280 acres).

This opportunity will not occur again.

Now is the moment to secure your own unique slice of Bruny Island.

This is the jewel in the crown - an expansive 66-hectares (163 acres) of very superior, high-quality farmland on two titles, bordered by high conservation value native forest and including exclusive access to water rights over the only permanent water source in the area.

The modest but comfortable three-bedroom brick veneer homestead has unmatched views from its private, secluded and elevated position. The vista sweeps around from East Cloudy Head, along the five-kilometre length of Cloudy Bay Beach to West Cloudy Head, then further afield to the World Heritage mountains beyond.

Outbuildings include machinery, hay and storage sheds in good condition.

This lot enjoys a current Development Approval for a rainwater collection and bottling operation and also for short-term accommodation in the homestead, which is scheduled to commence operation this year, with professional management already in place.

The property is on two titles - the main parcel (lot 3) of 47.6 hectares, with the homestead and farm buildings; and the 18.5 hectare lot 4 on the southern boundary. This southern lot is bisected by Jack Jones Creek, a substantial permanent source of fresh water. A large dam is also on this block and is a haven for native waterbirds. The vendor holds a 250 megalitre water licence for irrigation and commercial use from the creek. Water pumping infrastructure and reticulation is in place across the two Homestead Blocks as well as the rest of the wider property.

Lot 4 was recently the scene of Bruny Island's Nayri Niara Good Spirit Festival, which was held in a natural amphitheatre towards the secluded eastern section of the land. There are several outstanding potential building sites on this southern lot, which is accessed from Staffords Road, a gravel road that branches off Cloudy Bay Road, not far from the famous beach.

General notes on the property

Properties of this size, scope and quality are rare anywhere - but in the iconic Cloudy Bay area of South Bruny Island, it is impossible to find another one like 777 Cloudy Bay Road.

The vendor of this remarkable property has worked skilfully and strategically over the past few years to create a unique offering of separate lots, each with its own special character and appeal.

Three of the lots on the market are zoned Environmental Living while one is zoned Rural Resource. Three are vacant land, ready for a new owner to create his or her very special Bruny Island retreat. The largest lot is the superb 66 hectare homestead block on two titles, with its comfortable country farmhouse, spacious outbuildings and commanding position.

The entire property has been carefully managed over the past 15 years and is now positioned for transition to certified organic status. Fencing is of a good standard. Currently the property runs sheep and grows abundant hay. Stock grazing, vegetable growing, olives, viticulture, essential oils and manuka honey production are all potential activities on this high-quality land, given the reliable rainfall and the temperate, frost-free maritime climate.

While each block is offered separately for sale, titles have not been issued and the vendor will consider lots in a format that meets the particular requirements of an individual buyer.
