Love horses? Or maybe you’ve never had the opportunity to get to know one?
This property may be the perfect setting for your equine passion or for perhaps unleashing the one you think you have lurking inside you!
Leslie Vale is quite simply horse country.
And even if horses aren’t really your thing, you will find this neighbourhood has a peaceful tranquility about it because families love the fact it’s off the beaten track yet close to Kingston and Hobart.
Properties such as this are as rare as a rocking horse … well, you know what I mean.
There are so many wonderful features. Gently rolling paddocks, good fencing, a beautifully set up shed with two stables, separate hay storage and a sand arena…and the local riding instructor lives nearby.
Oh … and I should mention the house.
It’s fabulous and substantial … starting at the front entry porch … you will find a spacious country kitchen with stone bench tops, plenty of storage space and breakfast bar.
Leading on from the kitchen is a large and unique open plan dining and living area featuring Tas oak flooring. Cathedral ceilings in one part of this room lend a formal atmosphere whilst a cleverly positioned feature window frames Cathedral Rock in the distance. Sliding doors on one side of this room lead out onto a deck.
The home has 5 bedrooms, the master having a walk-in robe and en-suite. Frameless corner windows maximise the views out and let the light into the room.
The other four bedrooms are all of a good size and feature built-in robes.
The family bathroom has a corner shower, vanity and loo and there is a separate toilet off the large laundry.
An additional living area provides a link to the large undercover entertaining patio which in turn leads to a generously proportioned rumpus or games room. This is currently used as office space for a home business.
Outside and near the arena is a one bedroom unit which would suit the teenagers of the family or perhaps elderly family members.
The grounds of the property have been developed into various sections and provide ample play space for children as well as for the keen gardener.
There are many fantastic walking and riding tracks in the area. Access to the Leslie Vale Track of the end of Bullock Drive. Perfect place to walk or ride and enjoy the wonderful rural countryside.
All of this adds up to one very special package in a location that’s close to all the facilities of Kingston as well as being within an easy commute to the city.
