Swallows Nest Farm is a 46 acre property set in a private location with breathtaking views of southern Tasmania, from the Hartz Mountains in the south to Bruny Island, Storm Bay, Norfolk Bay and Mount Wellington and Table Mountain to the North. The current owners have cultivated a native flower farm on the property.
The unique home is built of local stone and is situated to ensure views from every window. There are 5 bedrooms, some very generously proportioned. The eat-in country style kitchen boasts a Rayburn wood fired stove with a " wet-back " that provides the house with hot water, keeping power bills to a minimum. There is also a slow combustion heater which heats the whole home, with the stone walls providing excellent thermal properties. Living areas consist of a large Living/Dining room with an open fireplace, a Lounge Room that opens onto the deck (and those views), and an extra informal living area upstairs. There are two bathrooms, one with a claw-foot bath. The northerly aspect means the home is full of natural light.
Outside, the home is enclosed by new wallaby-proof fencing that takes in approximately 6 acres. There is a chook run, fruit trees and an outdoor area perfect for the kids, as well as a surprising array of trees and plants, some rare, and a separate fenced paddock should you wish to have a few goats or sheep.
Outbuildings include a wooden 7.2m x 4.8m shed currently used as a workshop, and a Colorbond 6m x 15m Flower shed housing a new 2.4m x 3.6m Coolroom which is built for energy efficiency, as well as tool and wood storage sheds.
The property is drought proof with more than ample water storage which is gravity fed via a header tank at the top of the property. There is also a permanent spring which could be tapped if required.
Situated on the beautiful Tasman Peninsula, you are surrounded by some of Tasmania's best kept secrets with pristine beaches and walking tracks, as well as the Port Arthur and Coal Mines historic sites, and the new 3 Capes Track attracting tourists from all over the world. All amenities are a 5 min drive away in Nubeena, the central business area for the region.
The current owners have run a popular, growing business around a substantial plantation of native flowers. A forced sale due to family health issues means the buyer will have limitless options to create their own unique business or livelihood, should they choose to do so. The flower farm currently consists of around 9 acres of commercially productive native and protea plants supplying a large variety of flowers for the cut flower industry all year round. Potential also exists to tap into the growing tourism industry in the area by offering farm tours or " Paddock to Posy " experiences. Existing farm infrastructure means all the hard work is done! The owners are willing to provide helpful industry tips and detailed information regarding the plants, some of which are commercially rare.
This property is truly unique and offers the new owners a rewarding lifestyle in a beautiful environment with the possibility of tapping into the income provided by the existing plants and infrastructure. Book an inspection today or enquire for further information.
