Rural Retreat with River Views


Imagine a rural retreat where the only sounds are the breeze in the trees and the birds singing… all only a 20-minute scenic drive from the Devonport CBD. Now stop imagining, because this property is all of that and so much more! This property of approx. 39 acres is situated in a peaceful rural setting with over 1km of Rubicon river frontage…where you can truly relax and unwind, taking in the magnificent view.
Entering along the private driveway, you'll already feel a world away from everything else as you begin to appreciate the size and privacy of this wonderful property. The brick home proudly sits at the end of the driveway, overlooking the stunning Rubicon river.
Built in 1990, the home is spacious and instantly has that homely feel as you step inside. The heart of the home is the updated country kitchen which plenty of storage and the open plan sitting or dining area. A Bellchambers wood stove burns in this area keeping the entire house warm and cosy, and sliding doors from this room lead out onto the jewel in the crown of this property… the undercover entertainer's deck.
Where can I start with the deck, the view is simply one of the best I've seen… with a panoramic view out over the Rubicon River and the front paddocks on the property. This entertaining area features a built-in BBQ area with bench space and BBQ large enough to cook a feed on for the whole family this Christmas! As if this wasn't enough, just outside the deck on the nearby patio is the 5-person spa bath, wow!
Back inside you'll find the huge open plan formal dining and sunken lounge room. The sunken lounge features sliding doors out onto the front deck, an open fireplace and beautiful high ceilings.
Off the lounge is the main bedroom with walk-in robe and a functional ensuite. The study is also off the open plan lounge/formal dining area and is a great size.
Along the hallway are the remaining two bedrooms, both with built-in robes and looking out towards the river. Nearby is the family bathroom with corner shower, good sized vanity and small bath – a great size for bathing the kids. The toilet is separate to the bathroom and adjacent to these is the separate laundry with external access.
At the end of the home is the massive rumpus room or second living area with heating ducted through from the kitchen area. This room has outdoor access via sliding doors but it also accesses the garage via a small hallway. The hallway offers storage cupboards as well as access to the storage room, but through the storage room you will be delighted to find a fully custom-built craft room, which doubles as a home office! This room is truly next level, with heated ceiling, built-in cabinetry & desk space – a better set up office space does not exist!
The double garage completes the home and offers remote entry. There is also a huge 3 bay shed (11.8m x 11.8m) with high clearance roller doors. The shed also has built-in cabinetry with a sink and storage cupboards along the entire rear wall. A wood heater is also situated in this area, making it a great place for the ultimate man cave.
Now to the outdoors, again where do we start! Meticulously maintained gardens, a tranquil stream and water feature and a beautiful patterned path surround the home. The veggie patch is absolutely fantastic with raspberry canes, asparagus patch, lemon tree, lime tree & several gardens beds all neatly set up and ready for the spring and summer veggie planting, the entire veggie patch is also surrounded in bird netting. In the house yard there is also a dog yard, chook yard and plenty of fruit trees including olive, quince and apple trees…yum!
The house yard is fenced in and is a safe place for kids and pets, while the rest of the property is separated into 6 paddocks with some additional bush land. The land is ideal for livestock and water is plentiful, with a creek running through the property as well as 3 dams.
