NEW PRICE Sanctuary! 146 Nichols Road, ELDERSLIE TAS 7030
Located at the top of a lovely valley and backing onto the Pelham Nature Reserve, this approx. 25 hectare allotment (on 2 titles) could be a haven for you as well as the amazing diversity of animals and plants that call this beautiful property home.
The house sits in the middle of a green glen with a backdrop of majestic gums. It was built in 1988 but has recently undergone a transformation including a stunning kitchen; huge new bathroom; timber floors have been exposed; new wood heater and new heat pump installed; and insulation placed under the floor boards. All of the external doors and windows have been replaced with double glazing.
Along the back of the house is a covered entertainment area that looks out to the terraced gardens and up to a separate gazebo. Close by are a garden shed; chook house; and an enclosed orchard with raised vegetable beds. There are 2 garages (both with power connected) and another large storage shed.
A permanent creek forms part of one boundary and this fills two water holes that make delightful summer pools. Walking trails through the surrounding bushland lead to a sandstone ridge from which a spectacular view as far as Mount Wellington can be seen. While wandering through stands of Silver Peppermint Gums and gullies of Giant Man Ferns, you may spot over 12 orchid varieties and meet Wallabies, Wombats, Tassie Devils, Eastern Quolls and even a pair of Wedge-Tail Eagles.
All of this a million miles from the troubles of the World and yet only a 20 minute drive to the shops and school at Brighton and approx. 45 minute drive to the heart of Hobart.
