RARE OPPORTUNITY - CLONLARA COTTAGE, HUON VALLEY
This charming and secluded property sits tucked away from the road, just 25 minutes from Hobart. Located in the rural outskirts of Huonville near Grove, and set on a 2972m2 level block, the property enjoys stunning views down the picturesque Huon Valley.
Built in 1905, Clonlara Cottage has all the warmth and charm of yesteryear with a garden to match; surrounded by 112 year old specimen trees such as NZ Beech, Hawthorn, flowering Robinia and Dogwood. There are many tranquil places to relax under the trees, or out in the sunshine with a good book or a glass of wine after a day pottering in the large vegetable garden, established rose garden or surrounding cottage gardens. For those who like to entertain outdoors, the covered gazebo is the perfect place to enjoy the view whilst soaking up the heady scent of the roses that climb the structure. With numerous fruit trees scattered around the garden, wandering the grounds of this property is pure delight.
Inside, the home benefits from 3 double bedrooms, 2 with builtins and one with open fireplace, which could also be used as a second living area. The spacious lounge room, with Morso wood heater, faces North allowing sunlight to stream in through two sets of French doors leading out onto the deck and garden. Original Tasmanian Oak floorboards flow through to the open plan dining room and kitchen, which also features Tasmanian Oak benchtops and cupboards. The kitchen is complemented by a 6 burner gas stove and oven which will delight any aspiring chef! In addition to the wood heater and open fire place, the hardwired panel heaters throughout this home make it as cosy in winter as it is cool and airy in summer!
Enjoying sympathetic renovations in 2009, the property retains many original features such as high skirting boards and sash windows. In addition to the convenience of town water, there is also a 10,000L water tank purely for the garden, as well as an Envirocycle waste system with subterranean irrigation. A double carport & woodshed, separate garden shed, as well as a potting shed, complete the facilities on this property.
Clonlara Cottage is presented beautifully & the gardens compliment the house completely, providing a truly secluded environment. Be sure not to miss this rare opportunity to own such a historical and charming home!
