478 Brighton Road PONTVILLE, TAS 7030

OFFERS OVER $590,000



This property is arguably one of the best-kept secrets in Southern Tasmania at present, offering enormous potential for the new owners.

Positioned on 1.44 hectares the original C1880’s Stationmaster’s Residence comprises of both heritage charm and a modern light filled extension.

Incorporating both old and new this charming residence has a flexible floor plan and comprises of up to 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Original Tasmanian Oak floorboards are present in some of the home and the older area has Baltic pine lined timber walls adding to its ambiance and charm.

Sleeping in the master bedroom will be a delight to open your eyes, in the morning, the outlook onto green pasture and an abundance of birds.

The north easterly aspect and the large windows capture the light filled morning sky as soon as the sun is awake.

You can choose to have breakfast in bed or in the summer months, breakfast amongst the vines on a Sunday morning may become a ritual.

The ensuite bathroom is generous and incorporates a double shower. The second bathroom has bath, separate shower, toilet and vanity.

The second residential dwelling offers open plan living incorporating the dining and lounge room. There are two bedrooms and one bathroom in this dwelling with the master bedroom having a built in wardrobe.

This home is warmed and cooled by a reverse cycle air conditioner.

The Southern Midlands council has approved the second tenancy as visitor accommodation.

An additional building – lets call it the home office, offers 48sqm under roof space in addition to the carport and verandah.

This building is separate to the two dwellings and would be perfect for those who have a model train; the craft enthusiast or someone who wants a home office.

As if this property doesn’t offer enough. Now lets talk WINE!

The established vineyard with both Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir vines will be of interest for those who simply love a glass or three and wish to have their grapes made into wine by a local winemaker or for those who would like to make their own. Both are options here. The agent representing this property can attest to the wine being very good. The vineyard during the 2017 harvest produced 800 kilos resulting in 50 dozen bottles of Pinot Noir and 15 dozen bottles of Sauvignon Blanc. Some of the vines are approximately twenty years old and the most recent were planted 3 years ago. The vines are serviced by an in ground sprinkler system and a state of the art frost mitigation system.

The property also has established fruit trees including pears, apples, apricots and 6 cherry trees.

This property is conveniently located a mere 5 minutes to the Brighton township and a mere 15 minutes to MONA and 30 minutes to the CBD of Hobart.

This property offers great proximity to the city with an easy commute and yet also offers a convenient rural escape.

Words do not do this property justice. Inspection is a must and Mel looks forward to meeting you and showing all that this fantastic property offers.
