180 Haywoods Road Gunns Plains 7315 TAS
Hideaway Valley Farmlet
Overlooking the river flats from the foot slopes of Gunns Plains is this little gem of a farmlet set on just over 6.6 acres (2.685 hectares) on gentle to moderate undulating slopes with a north to north east aspect capturing the sunshine hours of the day and providing some lovely views across the valley. This is a hobby farm that has the potential for so many recreational of cottage industry pursuits and affording the owners invaluable privacy but with ease of access through the heart of valley farming lands.
The homestead is a spacious 179 square metre, four bedroom brick veneer home that has just had a major make over in preparation for coming on the market. It also features a new 10 metre X 8 metre colourbond shed to complement the existing extensive outbuildings which not only contribute to this property being such good value, but are invaluable in providing so many options for the properties use and potential.
The vendors have in July-August of 2017 in preparation for the property coming on the market, had the interior repainted, as well as the exterior window frames, updated kitchen bench tops; it has had new floor coverings laid including carpet in the living areas and vinyl in the kitchen, laundry and bathroom, along with a number other minor improvements throughout. The guttering and fascia was replaced only 12 months ago, and the vendors have also elected although advised it wasn't necessary to install new roofing to the main living area of the house to ensure peace of mind for any new owner.
As mentioned above, the position of the property and the home afford outstanding views over Gunns Plains and with the privacy of the location the vendors have elected to leave the choice of blinds or drapes to a new owner or indeed as to whether or not to install them at all and made allowance when establishing value to market. The home is now bright and light and is afforded an abundance of natural light and ambiance. The climate control is further provided by the recently installed 8.2 kw Daiken reverse cycle air conditioner/heat pump. The living area is a spacious open plan featuring kitchen, dining and lounge. The kitchen features ample bench space and cupboard storage, with breakfast bar for casual dining. Cooking facilities include electric cooktop and wall oven, with dishwasher for the aftermath. Three of the four bedrooms feature views to the east over the valley below, while the fourth bedroom looks west over the gardens and grounds. The bathroom features separate bath and shower with separate toilet. The spacious laundry is very practical in a country environment.
For the hobby or lifestyle farmer you really are spoilt for options. The six and a half acres of pastures are suitable for most livestock, are on productive red soils over the areas limestone base, combined with the sheltered aspect and slopes providing somewhat of a suntrap. The boundary fences are secure for livestock, while the pastures are a canvas that may be further divided to suit is desired whether permenantly or with temporary electrics
The outbuildings are a feature of the property if you were to calculate the value in establishing the facilities from scratch - beginning with the new 10 metre X 8 metre colourbond shed with twin roller doors is an ideal workshed and secure vehicle or machinery facility; then there is the expansive 5 bay machinery and utility shed approximately 25 metres X 7 metres suitable for stables, horse float, motor home caravan, pens for bobby calves, lambs or kids; the rustic paling clad shed with cement floor would be ideal for converting for cottage crafts or simply storage; and then there is the dairy from days past when this was part of a larger working farm has many options for use but more importantly still has large sturdy stock yards with direct access to recreational and riding trails. Your only limits are the choices for which you intend to use the facilities.
If you want genuine privacy and tranquillity without isolation, this is where it can be found, approximately 20 to 25 minutes from the heart of Ulverstone, 35 to 40 minutes from Devonport, and approximately an hour and a half from Launceston, the two main gateways, air and shipping accesses in and out of the state. Access to schools, shops and essential services are approximately twenty minutes to half an hour away, nothing to todays modern commuter. For the trout fishing enthusiast, or recreational to avid kayak or canoe enthusiast the Leven River runs through the heart of Gunns Plains and is only 3 or 4 minutes drive away, alternatively visit a picnic site at the wildlife park with friends or local vineyard & cellar door for a glass of quality cool climate wine. Gunns Plains is a pleasant country community to reside.
