Located in a private setting with spectacular water views across to Fluted Cape, this north-facing, architect designed, passive solar home has a flexible floor plan.
Currently set up as 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms this home has multiple living areas and part of the house has previously been used as a popular short-term accommodation stay.
The double glazing, full insulation and clerestory windows are part of the passive solar construction which keeps the house temperature at a comfortable level no matter what the weather. For those colder winter days there are two cosy wood fires. The two year old 6KW solar system keeps costs down and increases the sustainability of the property.
The country style kitchen has high quality appliances, picture windows and double sliding doors opening onto the lush north-facing established garden. Behind the kitchen there is a large walk-in pantry.
Opposite the kitchen is a family dining and lounge room with fabulous water views, wood fire and raked ceilings.
in this wing of the house there are two bedrooms with large built-in robes as well as a bathroom with separate toilet.
Coming back into the home from the garden or a walk along the adjoining Manuka Hills Track is a breeze with a conveniently located mud-room, great for kicking off your garden gear or walking shoes and hanging up your coats and hats.
The second lounge room has a box window seat (doubling as a wood box) with a picture window that captures the spectacular views making it the perfect place to read a book, listen to music or just chill out watching the pademelons and wallabies nibbling the lawn.
There is a study area opposite the second lounge which could be converted to another bedroom if required and has a bathroom conveniently located close by.
The east facing master bedroom has cathedral windows to look at the cacophony of birds playing in the morning sun. A concealed walk through robe, separate sitting area, ensuite and large private deck makes this area the perfect retreat space and has previously been used for guest accommodation.
A large fully insulated and lined 3 room studio with double glazing and stacker doors is located just a short stroll through the garden from the house. Currently used as a working art studio this area could serve a number of purposes.
To complete the picture there is a large fenced veggie garden and chook run for those wanting the freshness of home grown veggies and eggs.
For those seeking a lifestyle property offering privacy, views and a feature packed home this is a definite must-see.
This property is conveniently located with the Kettering Marina and Bruny Island ferry terminal only a two minute drive away. The services at Snug are five minutes away.
