A Rare, Natural Lifestyle Near to the City Centre!

Be entranced by this home's distinctive modernist and organic, architectural design, set amidst 46 lush acres of pasture and bushland in one of the most popular locations in Tasmania, only 20 minutes to Hobart and 10 minutes to the convenience of Kingston by car.

Willow Brook Estate', sits privately surrounded by well-maintained and strategically cleared bush so that a unique, retreat environment is formed. The house itself is situated on about 15 acres of grass and garden overlooking an extra-large dam with jetty, 2 creeks and paddocks. The double brick and well insulated, three-bedroom, two-bathroom home has a solar passive design, featuring a north facing sunroom which heats the home naturally, year-round.

The downstairs entry foyer leads to a spacious lounge with ducted wood heating and luxurious under-floor heating, then flows through to the open-plan, new entertainer's kitchen. There is also a large bedroom and bathroom on this level for separation when guests decide to stay. A concreted deck area off the dining room has spectacular 180-degree views of the property and comes with a retractable awning for you to enjoy all weather, outdoor dining. Upstairs are two large bedrooms separated by a new modern bathroom. The home is bright and filled with sunshine provided by the skylight over the stairway.

The estate boasts another living space, which is a detached, self-contained unit with a bedroom, open plan living, dining, bathroom, toilet and kitchenette with wood heater and reverse cycle air conditioning plus its own outdoor entertaining space.

This low maintenance property has been lovingly created over the years in which time the owners have carved out approximately 5 walking tracks so that the native Tasmanian bushland can be fully appreciated. The tramway track that forms part of the property was built by the Sandfly Colliery Company in 1906. The track was dismantled in 1922 but small pieces of history still remain for the keen collectors.
