This property is something a bit special. Consisting of just over 11 acres (4.57ha), there is so much on offer here. Including a lavish park-like garden with ponds and an ornamental bridge. There are sheds, workshops, a chicken coop, a veggie & fruit tree enclosure, fenced pasture paddocks, a rivulet boundary and a wonderful Art Deco home complete with studio sleepout. Originally a nursery, this is a private garden setting to be proud of. There are hundreds of Rhododendrons and an extensive list of established fruiting and ornamental plants. There are Maples, Birches, Crab Apples, Elms, rare Cedar trees and the most amazing Oak tree.. The garden will flower at different times throughout the seasons with an array of colour. There are winding paths and garden rooms to discover. So well established, the maintenance is now minimal. The highlight has to be the bridge that leads to an island, just beautiful.

Down the back there are 2 large fenced pasture paddocks with a huge 6 bay machinery shed, stables and shelters. The paddocks are fed water to water troughs from the bottom rivulet boundary. Yes, a flowing rivulet forms the bottom boundary. The water from this is pumped back up to the house and then can be used throughout the multiple outlet points throughout the entire property. Ideally set up for horses or any other animals you'd like to have. There is even a separate area set-up for the goats. The chicken coop is enormous, more a 'Chook Mahal' really. Near that the veggie and fruit tree enclosure is easy to access from the home and fully netted to protect your produce from the many birds. There are Blue Wrens, Scarlet Robins, and many other lovely sounding chirps constantly throughout the gardens.

The house is a classic 1950's Art Deco home. This one is a beautiful example. Inside there are high ceilings, timber floors, Ceiling Roses, Open fireplaces and and large spacious rooms. There kitchen has been upgraded. Here there is enough room for a large country kitchen table, ideal for meals with friends and family. The lounge has a wonderful warm feel to it and the whole home is kept comfortable with a dual unit ducted air-conditioning system, maintaining ambient temperature throughout.. There are 4 bedrooms with a central family bathroom. Or if only 3 bedrooms are required, the 4th room makes a fantastic second living space. Out the back there is more room to spread out with a separate studio or sleep-out. Very quaint and a very practical addition to the main home. Behind that is the workshop and garage. This space is also quite substantial and will allow you to do those projects you've been wanting to do. Within the gardens, there is another studio, which was the original shop for the nursery, now another building for whatever your needs may require.

This amazing property sits just out of the Geeveston township up a lovely rural country road that leads to the Tahune Air-Walk. This could be valuable should you want to develop the property into a tourist attraction. The possibilities here are plentiful. Hold weddings, create accommodation, do garden tours or set the nursery up again. A separate entrance allows the visitors to by-pass the home straight to the gardens with ample car parking available under the huge pine trees. Geeveston is a growing community with many like-minded people all keen on self-sufficient living. Meetings at the hall at the Twilight Markets will enable you to swap your produce whilst having a chat. There are cafes, a providore, bakery, sushi, and a small local supermarket. There is a fantastic butcher and gift shops. Other services include a doctor surgery and primary school too. The main hub of the Huon Valley for all your other services is around 15 minutes to the north at Huonville and the Hobart CBD will take you around 50 minutes along the Huon River and over the Wellington Range.
