166 Colebrook Road,
Lifestyle Richmond homesteadGeorgian style meets energy efficiency, modern construction and low maintenance at this 48 acre rural retreat, on the banks of the Coal River at historic Richmond in Tasmania’s south.
With a generous floor plan of over 400 sqm, this 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom colonial style homestead features polished hardwood floors, classic verandahs on 3 sides, double glazing throughout, insulation to walls, floors and ceilings and 24 solar panels, ensuring a year round affordable temperate climate inside the home and keeping winter heating costs to a minimum.
Oriented to catch the best of both morning and afternoon sun, every window offers rural views across the splendid Coal River Valley, while the residence is secreted away far enough from major roads to be both peaceful and private.
Completed in 2004, the home channels contemporary elegance with creative décor, catering to different moods in each area. The large downstairs living spaces, including the farmhouse kitchen, flow easily one to the other, including a den with cosy wood fire. Stairs, with an attractive timber balustrade, lead to 4 bedrooms and 2 of the 3 bathrooms, all of which have generous built-ins. The master bedroom has both en suite and a walk-in wardrobe.
Attic storage is accessed through a pull-down loft ladder, whereas under the home there is a 120 sqm full-length basement area of grand proportions, just begging to be a temperature controlled storage space for produce or inventory for a home business. The 9 x 6 m 2 car garage with internal access to the home is perfect for a home office or workshop. This is a wonderful floorplan offering maximum flexibility for the next owners.
A 10 mega-litre water licence comes with the property allowing irrigation from the Coal River scheme, enabling a range of farming pursuits from cropping to keeping horses, within a commuter drive of Hobart’s cafes, restaurants and festivals.
Land, privacy and style, less than 40 minutes from the centre of the city of Hobart and right in the heart of Tasmania’s premier wine district. What could be better than this?
