Wake up to Water

Be the envy of your family and friends with the incredible position of this warm and inviting home on the banks of the Huon River. Perched overlooking Castle Forbes Bay itself, where the river starts to widen out into an estuary, your days could easily be taken up with gazing over the drifting tides and watching the ever-changing vista with the change of seasons. Wonderfully secluded in its own garden setting, this kind of property does not come up too often. Ripe for renovation, this is a position that you simply cannot overcapitalise, so let your creative desires flow.

If you can pull yourself away from the view, the property offers so much more. There are nearly 1.4 acres (5021m2), but it feels much larger as you are wrapped by a wide section of Waterfront Reserve land which sweeps down to the water's edge, making this one of those super rare offerings with direct access to the water. The land is mostly pasture, park-like grounds, with some established gardens around the home, including both ornamental and food productive areas.

The house itself is a solid brick family home. Inside, the main living is open plan with the dining area which enjoys windows to the north as well as doors that open onto the covered entertaining deck with views over the River. There are 3 bedrooms in the main house, a separate study, and a family bathroom. And there is the bonus of a rumpus room down the stairs with access out to the backyard. This is great as a games room, storage, or extra living space. To the side, there is an attached granny flat, ideal for your visiting friends and family or could be made to produce some income.

Back outside a large garage/workshop is to the left as you drive in. To the right, there is a gate that provides vehicle access to the vast grassy grounds that sweep down to the river's edge. The hamlet of Castle Forbes Bay is around 15 minutes from Huonville and just under an hour from Hobart. This is a beautiful part of the world and a rare property within it. Please contact us for further information or to arrange a private viewing to see for yourself.
