483 Rheban Road,
Spring Beach, TAS
Exquisite waterfrontFrom the old English words "settlement" and "enclosure" comes "Stapleton" for "Stapleton Beach" - a private and exclusive location for just five properties with beach frontage on the superb Tasmanian East Coast.
The architect designed "Longview" at 483 Rheban Road, Stapleton Beach is perfectly positioned to enjoy magnificent 180 degree views across the sparkling Mercury Passage seaway to the allure of enchanting Maria Island National Park beyond.
Escape to this dream setting is just one hour by road from the bustling city of Hobart with a world class array of restaurants, cultural activity and professional services. The peaceful "Longview" retreat offers a wonderful contrast of nature trails, native birdlife and the timeless sounds of the sea for company right at your front door at this special location so close - yet a lifetime away.
The long, low, three level 483 "Longview" residence sits comfortably within the landscape as an understated but pleasing design for such an inspiring location. A large 1.9ha land area with 147m of beach frontage ensures privacy for outdoor entertaining areas both on the waterside full length sundeck and in a sheltered courtyard behind the home, affording protection from afternoon sea breezes.
The ambience inside the property is one of relaxation and privilege. 483 Rheban Road features expansive panoramic windows with glass doors opening to the sundeck at the front of house, catching the Maria Island sunrise and filling the living areas with morning sunlight.
The central and spacious open plan kitchen, dining, lounge and living areas flow easily together with a bathroom, separate WC and laundry plus an office occuping the middle level of three floors. Upstairs are four separate bedrooms all with built-ins and spectacular water views, another bathroom and the parents’ retreat, with walk-in robe and an en suite with spa.
Separated from the family and guest rooms by an air bridge passing beneath a glass atrium flooding the living areas of the home with natural light, this access to the master bedroom is a defining feature of the home.
Internal access leads downstairs to a lower level offering a large rumpus room, a workshop and wine cellar, lock up parking for two cars and a fourth bathroom installed for cleaning up after an early morning swim or for extra guests using the rumpus room for overflow accommodation.
A 9x5m lock up boat shed also provides secure storage for bikes, kayaks or other sporting equipment and includes a practical workshop area. Adjacent is a secure shipping container for longer term storage of furnishings or personal effects.
The Orford / Spring Beach and Stapleton precinct is well equipped with community support infrastructure including supermarkets, medical services, cafes, a pharmacy, golf, bowls and boating clubs, fantastic fishing and sailing and 13 of the best cool climate vineyards in the state. Tasmania has so much to offer - what are you waiting for!
