Last chance at Cloudy Bay - rare and special premium Bruny Island property
LOTS 2 and 4 UNDER CONTRACT
LOT 5 UNDER OFFER
In these strange new times, properties that offer privacy and seclusion in a pristine natural environment are increasingly rare. Here's a last chance to secure a special place to establish a sustainable lifestyle, enjoying the benefits of clean air, pure water, unspoilt organic land 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 47.6 hectares), superlative views, outstanding building sites, rich pastures, native forest and close proximity to wild and remote surf beaches.
These are the last few vacant 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. An exciting possibility is the rare potential to secure an unbroken chain of contiguous blocks, by purchasing all four lots with frontage to Cloudy Bay Road, creating a magnificent and unique holding of around 100 hectares (250 acres).
The Homestead Block (lot 3) is the jewel in the crown - an expansive 50 hectare parcel of superior, high-quality farmland on two titles, bordered by high conservation value native forest and including exclusive access to water rights over Jack Jones Creek, the only permanent fresh water source in the area. The vendor holds a 250 megalitre water licence for irrigation and commercial use from the creek.
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.
Cloudy Ridge (lot 2) is to the north of The Homestead Block. Privacy and a panoramic 360 degree viewfield is a feature of this 11.6 hectare lot. Several potential building sites occupy an elevated rise, with superlative views over Cloudy Bay Lagoon to West Cloudy Head and beyond to the Southern Ranges and Adamsons Peak. The block has quality pasture running up into mature native forest. As with all the lots on the property, the beach and surf breaks of Cloudy Bay are close by.
The Festival Block (lot 4) covers 17.07 hectares on the southern boundary of lot 3. A large dam on this block is a haven for native waterbirds. There are several outstanding potential north-facing building sites on this southern lot, with views to Mt Mangana and the Southern Ranges, with glimpses of Cloudy Bay Lagoon. A substantial pastured area is ideally suited to agriculture or horticulture. The block is accessed from Staffords Road, a gravel road that branches off Cloudy Bay Road, not far from the famous beach.
The Surfer's Block (lot 5) is the southernmost lot, within walking distance of the beach. Zoned Rural Resource, it comprises 20 hectares of good, level pasture and several excellent elevated potential building sites. With a long road frontage to Cloudy Bay Road, this block is the ideal location for development - a holiday weekender or short-term accommodation. The land has been used for honey production and with the addition of a couple of dams it would support a manuka/tea tree plantation for apiculture. It's the perfect place to combine a peaceful country lifestyle with a variety of tourism or agricultural enterprises.
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 entire property has been carefully managed over the past 15 years and is now positioned for transition to certified organic status. 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. Water pumping infrastructure and reticulation is in place across the wider property.
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.
