Luxury has a new address and you can find it on the edge of one of the most pristine large wild rivers in Australia. Waratah Park has been architecturally designed in true passive solar, eco style, with nature as the inspiration and the river and the sun as the focus. A blend of specialty timbers and some rendered masonry are perfectly assembled with expansive windows in a variety of angles which create the most interesting and unique, yet entirely practical and functional residence.
Situated on 15 acres of fenced pastureland with towering eucalypts and delightful easy maintenance gardens, there is only the usual crown reserve separating the home from edge of the fourth largest river in the state. Directly in front of the private home you can walk up and down hundreds of metres of river stones enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the deep pools or cast your line for the challenge of the huge trout and local salmon on the edges of the rapids. It is a fisherman’s dream.
The home is entered by the owners through the double under roof auto garage into the middle level, bypassing the formal entry into the entertainers kitchen. This is the central focus of the home as it overlooks the dining and lounge areas. Entrance to the third bedroom, main bathroom, laundry and decks are also off this level. A gradual set of timber stairs leads you to the extra large master suite with its own dressing room, private third story deck and ensuite bathroom. The second hall on this level leads to a store room and the second bedroom with floor to ceiling windows and amazing views, perfect as an office for the work from home enthusiast, especially as there is NBN Sattelite service connected. Underneath the main structure is a three room self contained apartment with its own entrance and its own private deck.
All major rooms are designed to take advantage of the close up river views as well as several vantage points looking out to the snowy mountain range and world heritage wilderness beyond. The main deck is fully integrated into the free form living design of the home via extra large timber doors and hideaway fly screens. Outside the big colorbond barn has all the space required for the handyman, and alongside is a fully fenced vegetable garden and glass hothouse. Water is not an issue with the home on tank water and a bore for all your hobby farm needs and of course a river with very few homes further up than this one. There is an old farm shed on the top paddock and a small dam and a gazeebo on flats below the house. Access to the river is established and very easy along several natural paths.
A 12 minute drive from the shopping centre and schools of the major regional town, Huonville and you will arrive at the entrance gates to Waratah Park, truly one of Tasmania’s most creative architectural masterpieces.
