The Recipe for a Good Life 4684 Channel Highway, GORDON TAS 7150
This property has all of the ingredients to offer anyone looking to step back from the rat-race while still being a comfortable drive to Hobart and major centres. The main feature for this is the permanently flowing Grosse Creek running through the property ensuring plenty of water for the existing orchard, vegetable beds and pasture available on over 13 acres of land.
The house was built in the 1940s so has beautiful Tas Oak floors, large rooms and high ceilings. Recent renovations include a new kitchen (which has a large, slow-combustion stove as well as an electric one) and freshly painted inside. Renovations have started in the bathroom and everything is there for you to complete the work! In the cosy living room, there is a wood heater which is only a couple of years old and the house is insulated.
At the back of the house is the laundry with a second toilet as well as a large workshop and double garage. These buildings form a sheltered courtyard with lovely gardens. Next to the house is an orchard and chook run then the creek which has a cleared area with a BBQ Spit. Further up the creek is another orchard of Cherry trees and there are 4, well-fenced paddocks. Walking distance across the road is a public jetty for access to the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.
Gordon is around a 35 minute drive from the bustling hub of Kingston and Hobart is around a 50 minute drive. There are wonderful produce stalls close by and the Woodbridge School (and Marine Discovery Centre) for Primary and Secondary students is only 10 kilometres away.
