"Sunnybanks" is a gorgeous country homestead nestled on 30 acres (approx) of rolling hills and surrounded by low maintenance cottage gardens, a setting that enhances the character of its 19th century history.

The home consists of two structures complementing each other and is joined by the light filled link way, separating the accommodation and living spaces.

Built in the mid to late 1800s, the original cottage houses 3 bedrooms with ceiling fans, a modern bathroom with under floor heating and a country style laundry. Although totally renovated to blend with the newer addition, it still contains original features which preserve the integrity of its past. The new owners have also added a fourth bedroom which has access from the link way.

The open plan living/dining/kitchen space is stunning with its pitched roof, exposed timber beam, polished floorboards and full length bi-fold doors opening to the large entertainment deck with pleasant views over the rolling hillside and distant views to Mount Wellington.

Cabinetry in the kitchen features Tas Oak and Jarrah, stainless steel appliances including dish washer, range hood, electric hot plates with electric oven and a large central island bench with a granite top and lots of storage options.

The homestead is fully insulated with heating options from the majestic Brook wood heater which also has the ability to cook PIZZA! A reverse cycle heat pump is also available for that instant heating or cooling option.

Generous savings on your electricity accounts are due to the 3 kilowatt solar panel system and solar hot water maximising the suns energy with the surplus power fed back into the main grid.

Four generous fenced paddocks are suitable for grazing stock, horses or just enjoy the space around the homestead. There are 2 dams which catch their water during the winter rains as does the rivulet which borders one side of the property. The property is on tank water with a holding capacity of approx 45000 litres. Complimentary to the homestead is the 2 car garage and several other outbuildings including 2 large sheds, a substantial workshop, dog run, chook house and the old barn which with a bit of rework could be suitable for a games room or studio.

A row of cork Elms and an Olive Grove invite you as you enter the winding driveway to your new home.

A pleasant 5 minute drive to the energetic and rapidly growing township of Sorell, about 30 minutes to the Hobart CBD and 5 minutes to some of Tasmania's finest surf beaches!
