|Land Size:||19.84 hectares approx.|
Koonya is situated on the Tasman Peninsula, some 92 kms from Hobart, & 15 kms from Port Arthur. This picturesque location was originally called the Cascades in 1841, settled as a convict station & upon closing, was renamed Koonya , An aboriginal word, believed to mean "Black Swan".
As you meander along the gravel driveway, across the Cascades permanent spring, you enter this beautiful, rural setting of approx. 48 acres, (majority being bush, including 3 to 4 acres of pines, & balance largely red gums). The main home (completed 2008) is rendered mud brick & enjoys North East rural views & distant water views of Norfolk Bay.
Upon entering the main home, you are within a large living space which can be used as a beautiful living area, or utilise as a great artist studio. This area is warmed by a woodheater, & features a lovely raked timber ceiling with 6 skylights; with a private bedroom/study at one end. There is a separate laundry; separate bathroom which has a claw bath, toilet, shower & pedestal vanity; & a large master bedroom with it's own casual living space including woodheater.
At the front of the home is a beautiful kitchen/dining, & a lovely living space. Looking through double glazed, curved windows, offers great views, & access to a terrific deck area. The kitchen has great cupboard space, pantry, Ilve oven with gas hob (gas bottle) & range hood, with a unique tile splash back & solid timber parquetry floor; 2 skylights; plus gas heated water pipes through grating in the kitchen & casual living space for warmth.
Separate is the original cottage which has more recently been added onto, to offer a fabulous 1 bedroom, bathroom & small living & kitchenette space (pot belly stove), with access via double doors to a deck area. Perhaps a good option as B&B (STCA).
There is a solid double carport, adjacent to a terrific work shed or studio; a small separate woodshed, 44,000 litres of tank water, solar panel. Fire tracks surround the property, including a rooftop sprinkler system, driven by a Honda Pump & hoses.
Wonderful timbers are used throughout the home, most of which came from the property & milled on site. There are several raised garden beds, small orchard, easily maintained gardens with great dry rock walls as a feature. This property has great walking trails & the ultimate in privacy, in an artistic paradise; a short distance from Shelley Beach & part of the cultural venue of the Koonya Town Hall.
