Longing for the sanctuary of a rural idyll, yet within easy reach of the amenities of town? Dreaming of having the country lifestyle so many of us crave, without sacrificing access to the coast? Then it’s time to start getting excited!
On offer are not one, but two characterful homes, set upon approx. 6.4 acres (2.61 ha) of elevated, undulating land, featuring spectacular established gardens and fruit trees, and enjoying scenic vistas over the surrounding countryside. The centre of St Helens, the largest town on the north east coast of Tasmania, is a 5 min (2.7km approx.) drive away, whilst the beaches of Binalong Bay, the gateway to the Bay of Fires, are approx. 13.2km (around a 15min drive) from the property.
The main house is imbued with a coastal country aesthetic, with wainscot panelling, a bright, white kitchen with timber-topped breakfast bar, and a contemporary and light bathroom with glass shower screen, double sinks and euro-style laundry facility. The two bedrooms boast generous built-in wardrobe space, whilst a dedicated study (or possible third bedroom) offers a separate space for work or reflection.
A central open plan living / dining zone with wood-burner offers ample room for gathering and relaxation, and opens onto a selection of outdoor entertaining areas. There is also space for an additional seating area in the foyer, capitalising upon the open country kitchen feel.
Currently utilised as a self-contained holiday accommodation offering, the additional two bedroom cottage provides scope for either continuing to holiday let, or utilise as overflow accommodation for family and friends. Stylishly finished, amenities include an open plan living / dining / kitchen, a covered deck with bespoke outdoor fireplace, and contemporary bathroom with shower and euro laundry facilities.
A large garage / shed with parking for at least two vehicles, plus additional storage areas to the rear and double carport to the side, provide ample space for storing vehicles, workshops, and more.
The St Helens region, with its popular mountain bike trails and status as the inaugural winner of Tassie’s Top Tourism Town in 2020, attracts visitors all year round, and is noted for its mild temperate climate. With amenities including cafes and restaurants, galleries and shops, supermarkets, hospital and medical centre, school (K-12), St Helens has much to offer those seeking a change of lifestyle.
