Offers Over $849,000

If you have dreams of self-sufficiency, hobby farming, or a private and peaceful lifestyle amongst the trees - here is over an acre of opportunity to make those dreams a reality, right on the city's doorstep.

Built in 1960 and set on 5,749 sqm of land in sought-after Otago, this three-bedroom home is warm, comfortable and unpretentious. With great features like ample window frontage and Tas Oak floorboards under the carpet - just bring your own vision and creativity to make it truly your own space.

Set in an elevated position with a sheltered and sunny aspect, and glorious views through the trees to the Derwent River and kunanyi/Mt Wellington - make yourself at home in the relaxed and cosy ambiance of the living space, complete with a freestanding wood heater to keep you toasty warm throughout winter.

There's a dining nook and galley-style kitchen with gas cooking, plus a chic bathroom with a dual-head oversized shower, claw foot bath and separate toilet. The three bedrooms all have tranquil outlooks over the leafy grounds, and the master bedroom is generously sized with ample built-in storage.

The wide front deck is a wonderful spot to enjoy the magical views, entertain with friends or make the most of outdoor dining in warmer weather; and the smaller rear deck is perfect for quiet relaxation amongst the trees and abundant bird life.

The sprawling grounds are ideal for ambitious gardeners or those keen to try their hand at hobby farming. The property is well fenced and has easy access to town water supply, and there are multiple sheds - a chook run, shipping container storage, a greenhouse, workshop and studio space. You will also find a covered garden with plenty of established produce as well as plum, pear, apple, quince, orange, mandarin and lemon trees, ornamentals such as the Pierre de Ronsard climbing rose and poplars in the summertime.

Located just 12 km from Hobart's CBD with a bus service operating along Otago Bay Road plus the many shops and services in Glenorchy, Lindisfarne and Bridgewater only 8 minutes away - this secluded yet convenient acreage offers the best of both worlds.

Private, peaceful and full of potential for your dream lifestyle in one of Tasmania's most desired suburbs, this delightful cottage surrounded by trees and gardens is a must-see. Inspections by private appointment - contact Mel and take the first step towards your new rural adventure today.
