HERE in the coveted Wattle Grove, a perfect balance between modern living and warm cottage charm has been found.
On a 4 hectare park-like property, this high-quality retreat-style residence offers its next supervisor a unique lifestyle opportunity.
Homelands Property Sales Manager Amber Leighton said the house was somewhat unique in that it only has one bedroom.
“Typically, plots like this host sprawling single-family homes, which means that the demographic situation, which is often appropriate for this type of property, is not adequately considered,” she said.
“But I think that’s why there is so much interest.
“This property is suitable for couples who work from home and want a separate office space, or for retirees who don’t want the maintenance of a larger home.
“And given the privacy of the property, it could make an ideal vacation home and would be a fantastic place to stay for a short break.”
The north facing house is perfectly positioned to take in the breathtaking views over its private landscape – pretty pastures, bushland and the Huon River are available with a view to the west.
Often times, the homeowner’s eyes are drawn to the nautical style dams and reflections of the rubber trees dancing above them.
The house is compact and cleverly designed to feel spacious and private.
The well-equipped kitchen looks onto the open-plan living and dining area. It has a gas hob, a convection oven and a WiFi-enabled dishwasher.
The living room has a sandstone fireplace and is adjacent to a private courtyard with a beautiful gas fireplace.
The master bedroom has its own bathroom; It also flows into the courtyard, which is highlighted by a stunning, free-standing, claw foot bath outdoors.
Ms. Leighton said it was difficult to pick highlights from all of the property’s “incredible features”.
“The feedback from buyers so far has been that the serene environment is something they haven’t seen in other properties,” she said.
“I think the quality of the workmanship and the attention to detail in every part of this house make it so exciting. There is nothing that could have been finished better. “
On the round lawns of the property there is a studio and garage that have benefited from the same attention to detail as the house.
The space could have been a simple workshop and bar, but it has been turned into a fabulous entertainment area that doubles as a guest suit if needed.
There is a kitchenette and bathroom, wood heating, a guest room or office and a sunny terrace with a view of the river.
Two generously sized dams sit at the front of the block and could easily water gardens. However, due to the skillful use of native and easy-care plantings, the current landscaping is very easy to manage.
Ms. Leighton said a number of factors attract buyers to Wattle Grove.
She described it as “a lifestyle area” that is home to many medium-sized plots.
“Most of the houses enjoy all-day sun overlooking the Huon River, which is more difficult to find on the eastern side of the Huon Valley,” she said.
“Wattle Grove is just over the hill from Cygnet, a thriving community that has everything you need every day, as well as fantastic cafes, galleries and bi-monthly markets.”
