4167 Channel Highway Middleton 7163 TAS
On the border of Flowerpot on the Channel Highway, an old blue farm gate and stone gateway is the first hint of the provincial style of this incredible property, Bracken Ridge.
Constructed in 1989 with a full renovation and seamless extension completed in 2009, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom, double-storey home is nestled into the hillside with breath-taking views over the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island.
A sweeping driveway lined with Himalayan birches takes you down to a French-inspired farmhouse set in an exotic garden against a backdrop of bush.
Upon entry through the blue French farm door, the home’s impeccable style is evident. The open dining and living area is filled with light, the contemporary neutral palette contrasting beautifully with the warm floorboards, open fire and chandelier centerpiece. The blue of sea and sky dominates through every window, the panoramic view of the Channel and Bruny Island drawn inside the home.
From the living area, four sets of French doors open onto the protected north-east side of the house, to a paved courtyard with a dining area shaded by a clipped wisteria. Gazing over the channel from this elevated position, it’s easy to imagine you’re in the Mediterranean.
Overlooking the living area, the galley kitchen continues the theme of old and new with the stainless steel benchtops against the panelled cabinetry with country-style handles. Tucked behind the kitchen, laundry, walk-in pantry and boot room make clever use of the central space. Adjacent, is an artist’s studio overlooking the garden and water views, which could be used as another living area or bedroom.
Upstairs in the master bedroom, the private balcony is a prime vantage point from which to take in the sweeping water views as well as the charming garden. A spacious bathroom extends from the master suite around the corner of the first floor, linking to the second bedroom.
A small formal garden adjoins the terrace and on the level below there is an extensive kitchen garden with fruit trees, raised vegetable beds and soft berries.
Beyond, the garden opens into shrubbery and parkland. Blackwoods form a windbreak to the south-west of the property; pin oaks, poplars and birches lend an old world air and if you are lucky, you may spot a sea eagle nesting in nearby eucalyptus. On the shoreline below the garden, there’s a pebble beach from which boats or kayaks can be launched for paddling, fishing or peaceful contemplation.
