Situated high on a hill and surrounded by approx. 64 acres of natural bush and pasture, lies this peaceful and private two storey family home. The three bedroom, Cedar weatherboard house faces due north, capturing the sun all day and commanding fabulous views over the neighboring countryside, the Patersonia Valley and Mt Arthur. Inside this wonderful home, the decor and finish is just what one would expect to find in a comfortable country property. From the timber features, Myrtle and Huon Pine kitchen, the study / library nook, to the Slate floor, spacious bright bathroom with claw-foot bath, an expansive approx. 11x4 metre deck for outside entertainment, this home is set in a beautiful, landscaped garden of native and exotic trees and shrubs. The property also has a large A-frame dwelling presently used as a workshop and workroom but would make an excellent studio or teenager's retreat since it has a bathroom, loft bedroom, power, lighting and wood fire heating. The machinery shed / garage comfortably accommodates 4 vehicles, is equipped with a large work bench, power and lighting and provides loads of storage space. Beyond the gardens is approx. 5 acres of pasture with a circular dam and water troughs adjoining approx. 57 acres of natural bush protected under a private forest agreement allowing recreational pursuits, the collection of firewood and the enjoyment of bushwalking, fishing and swimming in the bordering St Patricks River and Patersonia Creek. The gardens and all the buildings are situated within an animal-proof electric fence protecting a small, established orchard, a secure hen-house and run and a large fully enclosed, highly productive, raised-bed vegetable garden with plumbed sink and workbench. The property has NBN satellite, a plumbed-in / or portable fire pump with reeled hose in accord with a bushfire plan, 2 roof catchment rainwater tanks totaling 48,000 litres and a separate 8,000 litre gravity feed hilltop tank pumped from the creek for gardens, laundry and toilets. This country home is situated just over 20 minutes from Launceston's CBD and is on the school bus route which passes the front gate.
