This property was once one of many orchard estates through out the Exeter and Gravelly Beach region. The grand old federation home was built in 1904, is set on 16 acres and with the homes elevated position, it commands a fine view of the Tamar River and surrounding property. Wide verandahs line three sides of the building. The main entrance gives access to a wide central hallway from which the principal rooms of the house are accessed. Four spacious bedrooms all with individual style that showcase the period of which the home was built. The master bedroom has a walk in wardrobe and ensuite.
Having been lovingly cared for, restored, and changed over time, the house is a truly beautiful home — the architecture boasts tall ceilings, dado panelling, timber lining, large timber windows and doors and traditional fire places with ornate mantelpiece command the focal point in many of the rooms. All renovations are in total sympathy with Federation style and appear seamless within the walls and roofline of the home. Classic detail has been mixed with modern luxuries including renovated bathrooms, kitchen, formal dining and sitting areas, the polished floorboards have been maintained and brought to life. The family sized eat in kitchen acts as the beating heart of the home with high quality appointments, gas cooktops, Jarrah benchtops and butlers pantry. The kitchen shares a dual fire place with the main living area and dining space, and stunning views of the property can be viewed through large windows and French doors. The cottage gardens are an important part of the landscape, as are the multiple outdoor entertaining areas that compliment the scenery. The property is flat-sloping mainly pasture and has been previously used for cattle, has a large gardening shed, dam, bore and connected to the town water supply.
The road/track which runs between Exeter and Gravelly beach known to the locals as The Goat Track runs directly beside the property and leads to Stoney Creek. A good walking track to get to near by restaurants and Rose Bay Park. Exeter is a 20 minute drive from Launceston CBD and the property's location is walking distance to schools, shops and transport in Exeter.
