In an elevated position 250 metres above the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, the original Kregors Farm house (circa 1905) sits sheltered by the ridges of the Mount Royal Conservation Area. Stunning views across to Bruny Island and the Tasman Peninsula cliffs extend for 30 nautical miles and on a clear day, the Tasman Island lighthouse can be seen in the afternoon light.

Set in a powerful landscape of eucalypt forest and ever-changing ocean views, the owners have re-roofed, renovated and extended the house to achieve a charming home transition and modern day living. There is an open plan living and dining area that captures the sunrise ocean views and the stylish quality appointed kitchen, study/sunroom plus two bedrooms, also look out over the water and forest vistas.

Throughout the house the ceilings are high. All of the bedrooms are of a generous size and share clean cut lines of panelling and dado. Flooring in the smaller bedroom and in the dining, living and kitchen areas is natural bamboo with the two larger bedrooms retaining the original farmhouse timber floorboards.

The bathroom is a modern combination of comfort and European luxury. A heat-holding Kaldewei freestanding bath sits beside a walk-in shower and vanity and the walls and floor are tiled with Spanish porcelain. The home is heated by a wood burner fuel stove and two large wall mounted energy efficient heaters.

Surrounding the house and sheds there are 2 hectares of fenced grazing land (divided into 4 paddocks). To add to the space, there is a paved outdoor entertainer's deck and 3 sheds adjoining the house (including a generous sized powered workshop and undercover parking for 4 cars) with plenty of room for the boat, bikes or campervan. There is also a chook pen.

Four tanks supply water to the house and gardens and a grey water system is in place. For the kitchen, there is a small herb and vegetable garden and the low maintenance gardens have been landscaped with careful plantings of both native and endemic plants. Cottage-style gardens combine with mature forest trees and birdlife is abundant around the house.

This is a 28.82 hectare lifestyle farm home package that requires little maintenance with the bulk of the property supporting a diverse range of vegetation and providing habitat to wildlife (e.g. wedge-tailed eagles, yellow-tailed black cockatoos, Tasmanian devils and quolls). An added bonus is the walking track that wends upwards through the length of the property and provides access to several cleared areas and 2 small dams; one of which is spring fed. There is also a seasonal gully creek.

Hobart is an easy drive of 55 minutes and the vibrant small town of Cygnet is 20 minutes away. Middleton village store and post office is nearby and public transport is available.

Providing a unique lifestyle near the coast, this is an ocean-facing, private and secluded hillside retreat. Spend the day bushwalking, fishing and boating. Or embrace tranquillity and laze the day away soaking in the dramatic view and watching yachts sail by on the Channel below. Close to the new Gordon boat ramp and jetty, this is an enticing package for any sea/tree change.
