Roslyn House B & B 233 Uxbridge Road, BUSHY PARK TAS 7140
For the past few years, the owners have poured their hearts, and a substantial amount of money, into restoring this grand lady to her former glory. One of their goals was to make sure the house retained all of the charming features homes of this era are so loved for; the other goal was to create a warm and welcoming destination for guests.
The transformation includes the addition of 4 new bathrooms to compliment the beautifully updated bedrooms on the upper level (including replastering and painting); gas heating installed in the breakfast / sunroom (other heating provided by wood and radiant heaters); kitchen upgraded and gas connection installed; wiring has been tested, a new power board installed and 12 solar panels with a 3kw inverter added.
Built in 1859, the house is part of the original farm grant from 1812 (then called Humphreyville). It now sits on approx. 22 acres of gently sloping, north-facing land with spectacular views of the Derwent Valley. It is surrounded by gorgeous gardens, including 2 Magnolia trees as old as the house, which make a lovely place for family, friends and guests to relax and a stunning backdrop for weddings. Town water has been connected so there is no issue with rain water storage.
The land is mostly pasture and ideal to run stock (there are 4 stables, a tack room, machinery shed, a grain silo and 2 dams) but the area is also well-known for boutique vineyards, berry production and, of course, Hops. There is the possibility of expanding the current B & B business to include an Agrarian holiday experience with hands-on farm work including growing, harvesting and preparing the produce.
Bushy Park is approx. 15 minutes drive from the major shopping centre of New Norfolk and is an ideal base for guests to stay and explore the spectacular local attractions including Mt Field National Park, Russell Falls, Maydena Mountain Bike Track, world famous trout fishing rivers, and much more. Hobart is a comfortable 45 minute drive.
