Impeccably restored to the extent it can only be described as a work of art, The Oast House has to be seen to be believed. Offering numerous entertaining spaces, spacious bedrooms & an idyllic lifestyle only 25 minutes from the Hobart CBD, this property offers a magical hideaway for a large family or for a couple with potential commercial ideas in mind.
As you enter the property you immediately appreciate the sensitive restoration which took over three years to complete with many of the original features working beautifully with the modern & top of the range fittings & appliances.
The wood panelled and apple box timber-lined walls of the entry hall along with the cleverly chosen lighting greet you as you enter the property. The hall leads off into the beautifully designed modern kitchen in hues of burnt orange, slate and off-white which offers a spectacular space for keen entertainers and caterers alike.
A vast open plan living and dining area again utilise charming original features including Tasmanian Oak floorboards and the concrete slab where the old hop press once sat. In one corner a ladder stretches up through a small hatch to a room, as yet, undiscovered. A sun drenched BBQ deck is accessible from the dining area where evenings capture the sunset and the views of the surrounding countryside are purely magical.
The ground floor also features a sitting room & an artist’s studio both proudly boasting more original features including exposed rustic railway posts & an original drying room wall. From the sitting room you can see the 11 picker’s huts on the property and the views of the neighbouring hills & caves are breathtaking. A bedroom, shower room, separate toilet, laundry & bathroom complete the downstairs rooms.
A wide staircase takes you to the second level where the open spaces & cathedral ceilings add more character with striking exposed diagonal timber beams. The carpeted hallway & subtle lighting add warmth to this inviting upper storey. Two loft bedrooms, accessible by their own staircases, are unique and emanate a sense of fun with their double swinging barn doors and exposed timber beams. Three further bedrooms are located upstairs, including the master bedroom, which provides access to an incredibly striking en suite bathroom decorated in blood red, slate grey and aubergine tones.
Each level of this distinguished residence boasts an undercover timber deck which are fantastic spaces for dinner parties or children’s play areas and they take full advantage of the picturesque rural setting and the established gardens around the home.
In addition to the 11 picker’s huts on the property there is also a 1 bedroom self-contained cottage, a vast river flat where the hops used to grow & Sorell Creek also runs through the property where platypus and trout frolic and it offers a great swimming hole for children & adults alike.
The potential for this property is endless. It is a spectacular family home yet those with an imagination could develop it into many possibilities such as a boutique brewery, a corporate retreat, or luxurious bed and breakfast.
