95 St Patricks Head Road, St Marys, TAS, 7215
It is with great pleasure that we at Roberts Real Estate offer this unique property to the St Marys market. The current owner builders are going to be moving overseas in due course, hence this very reluctant sale. The land itself is gently sloping on the whole, with some low lying areas and small gullies, approximately12.5 hectares (30 acres) in size, and generally your typical Australian bush. The home itself has rural views in various directions, additionally is well positioned to capture a great amount of sun in a sheltered locale. Beautifully constructed of stone & timber, with hand crafted features abundant throughout the property, it must truly be inspected to fully appreciate.
Open the door into the open plan main living area and you will immediately note the massive timber poles and beams fitted and exposed as the main framework of the building, sitting comfortably alongside the local stonework and lead lighting which is always on display.
The ground floor is the heart of the home with the combustion stove for cooking (separate gas cooktop also), hot water and servicing the 6 radiators heating the upstairs & downstairs. The galley style kitchen is complimented with a custom built stainless bench top/sink and a good amount of drawers for storage, further to this is a separate toilet with vanity, tiled floors, and access to a sun trap reading room/day lounge, and then the wonderful bespoke timber staircase. The main bathroom is also located on the lower level, it has the advantage of being able to look out onto the bush outside while lazing in the sunshine in the must have claw foot bath, this room also has a shower and laundry combined.
Upstairs is the sleeping quarters with 2 good sized sleeping zones, study area, storage which house the hot water service, (a great room for clothes drying), a toilet and vanity plus an upstairs atrium.
Externally the property is well serviced by the triple carport, enclosed vege garden and work shed. Adjoining the work shed is a true asset to any home, a one bedroom weekender, retreat or somewhere to hide the visiting family & friends so as all parties can have their privacy, this little "retreat" has the added advantage of a combustion stove, commercial kitchen, grease trap & bathroom.
On the roof of the "retreat" are the solar panels and in a small enclave the battery storage area. While the main residence has double glazing and the wall cavity is filled with polystyrene for insulation purposes.
Simply put: if you like an ever increasing number of people are looking for a lifestyle property off the grid, then this one may well suit your needs
Fun fact: the property is located at the entrance to the St Patricks Head Walk, in our opinion one of the best walks on the East Coast.
