5674 Lake Leake Road,
1850's Homestead on 1,000 Acres of East Coast Grazing Land"The Plains" is how it sounds, 1,000+ acres of spectacular open arable grazing land interspersed with small areas of native bush and The Plains Creek dividing it. A historic grazing property in a district starting to boom with horticultural and tourism developments. It has long, high profile frontages to both the Tasman Highway and the Lake Leake Road.
Traditionally a wool growing and breeding property, "The Plains" now has a connection to and 10 megalitres of water from the new Swan Valley Irrigation Scheme. Some substantial areas of the property have been identified for wine grape production.
The homestead is a gracious old building with high ceilings and exposed timber on the doors, skirting boards, window frames and ceilings. It is sheltered from the road and shaded from the summer heat by deciduous trees in a long established garden. Also in the house yard is a separate bungalow for use as a games room or accommodation and in addition another outdoor entertainment building.
The purchase of "The Plains" is a wonderful opportunity to secure a large parcel of traditional East Coast land. Tasmania is being noticed by the rest of the world and this area is being transformed to cater for that interest. This is a chance to get in at the ground floor before it takes off.
