A Home with a History
"Coniston House" Circa 1910 - Can you imagine living on your own country estate with an historic classic homestead residence, that was previously used as a bed and breakfast hide-away and was one of the original Derwent Valley hop farming families.
On a level, grassed block of over 4 acres surrounded by hop fields and a short walk from Glenora School, this is an ideal family home with room to move inside and room to roam outside, for children and dogs or cats or both. A pleasant 45 minutes' drive from Hobart or just 21 klms from New Norfolk Town. An abundance of space provides flexible living conditions with superb, huge formal living room, 2nd large living or family room - these are ideal for entertaining family and lots of friends, massive kitchen with dining and informal family living space, 5 spacious bedrooms, 2 bathrooms.
The Tasmanian Oak floors are restored to their original beauty, a new central heating system (wood-fired) supplies water to 14 radiators and together with an integrated solar hot water supply the electricity bills are at an absolute minimum. There is near new insulation in the roof and the electrical wiring has been upgraded.The property includes stables, a quaint tool shed with remnants of original machinery as well as the oldest Tobacco Kiln in Tasmania. The stables are substantial and do need renovation, however there is opportunity to be creative and develop the property. There is also a garden teahouse with power, a main shed opposite the kitchen with attached double carport and with laundry facilities. To water the gardens there is a 46m deep fresh water bore giving over 5000ltr/hr.
The district enjoys a micro climate that is truly suited to the growing of hops which are than exported from Bushy Park to breweries the world over. There is a minor, essentials shop and petrol service nearby. A community hall opens daily selling local produce and a large collection of bric a brac to the passing tourists' trade. For those who appreciate the "old and the beautiful" be bold and secure this stately residence now.
