Quiet Splendour 466 East Bagdad Road, BAGDAD TAS 7030
Off the beaten track this may be, but well worth the journey! The access to this 83 acre (approx.) property is through a forest reserve of majestic Eucalypts that form a buffer between the town and this private sanctuary. It lies between the Chauncey Vale Wildlife Sanctuary and Flat Rock Reserve ensuring your peace and quiet.
Set in a clearing of approx. two acres is a striking, two-storey house of brick and timber. Its octagonal shape ensures wonderful views from every window. The upper level has four single bedrooms all with built-ins and study areas; a small study/office room; a bathroom; and a large, central living area with a skylight.
The downstairs area is accessed through a small foyer with an open plan dining room and kitchen to one side and then leads to the central living area. The kitchen and dining are warmed by a slow combustion stove and the living area has a huge wood heater. A large, double bedroom; two single bedrooms; a laundry and bathroom all open onto the living space.
The house yard is very well fenced and has a covered BBQ area and a double carport. Mains power and land line phone connection are to the house and there is approx. 29,000 litres of rainwater storage. Walking and vehicle tracks meander around the property leading to a large water hole; through forest gullies; along rocky outcrops; and to open pasture.
Although this property feels like it is a million miles from anywhere, it is actually only 7 kilometres from the gate to Bagdad (which has a Primary School, shops etc.); about a 20 minute drive to Brighton; and around 36 kilometres to the larger shopping complexes, schools, cinema etc. at Glenorchy. Hobart is less than an hours drive depending on traffic.
