Being the oldest farmhouse in Blackmans Bay, this unique home, where old meets new, enjoys stunning views of the Derwent River, Blackmans Bay Beach and way beyond.

The main living space incorporates the loungeroom, dining and kitchen with french doors leading out onto a patio overlooking the luscious garden and the sparkling waters of the Derwent Estuary. The living room windows survey the tantalising panorama, observing the to-ing and fro-ing of boats and a prime spot to watch the finish of the Sydney Hobart yacht race each year. There are two very large bedrooms upstairs along with a foyer or sunroom plus down the stairs to a generous rumpus room and third bedroom with a walk in robe.
