280 Windermere Road WINDERMERE TAS 7252
Enveloped by swathes of green pasture, with sweeping views of the Tamar River, this charming homestead is located in the highly coveted community of Windermere, just twenty minutes north of the city of Launceston. Nestled on 2.93 Ha (approx. 7 acres), this spacious family residence has undergone an extensive makeover, which means you'll have little to do but move in, take in the views and the tranquility, and indulge in the very best that life in the country has to offer. But, if that sounds a little too idyllic, there's a fully-renovated cottage that has plenty of potential for Bed and Breakfast accommodation, or independent living for extended family, or rambunctious teenagers! Leadlight windows by the entryway, rustic French doors and boards line the entry hall, and imbue the house with a distinctly modern-country feel. This characterful style is mirrored in the chef's kitchen, with its stone look benchtops and rusticated timber cabinets, quality Glem range cooker, and walk-in pantry. Designed to make the most of the views, there's easy access to a deck with room enough for a quiet drink, and the spacious open-plan living and dining room. Cedar windows and French doors feature in this room, kept comfortable year round by a cosy wood fire, and efficient air-conditioning unit. Separate to the living areas are three well-sized bedrooms. The Master boasts a modern ensuite and walk-in robe; another deck access and gorgeous river views. Bedroom two also with its own ensuite; and the third, a walk-in robe and views across an expanse of lush lawn to the farmland beyond. The family bathroom is generously-sized, crisp and bright, and features a decadent spa. The cottage has been freshly painted, and is awash with natural light. Quaint, and full of charm, this dwelling offers a well-sized bedroom and ensuite. The roomy living area is open plan, and has been thoughtfully designed to take in the views of the Tamar, whilst assuring the privacy of the residents of the main house. A timber sun deck provides the ideal place for taking in the summer sun. With almost three hectares of rich farmland, you can garden to your heart's content. The henhouse is already there, and the veggie patch is bountiful! There's ample room in the garage for a workshop, and room besides for the family vehicles, boat or caravan, with additional space in the attached double carport. Call today for your private inspection, and then you can go and get the ponies, the sheep, the cows or alpacas, because they'll love it here as much as you will! Or- run a B & B from the cottage. The options are there all that's needed now, is you!
