Two 250kg gas bottles provide instant hot water as well as power for cooking and fridges in the three dwellings. The managers or main residence is set within a fenced compound for privacy, with outdoor fire bath and fire pit.
This property is sustainable living at its best, there are no electricity, water or sewerage bills with all electricity manufactured onsite via 3000kw of north facing solar panels that feed into a new bank of 12 batteries. An inverter then transforms the stored energy into usable 240v power. A solar shed holds an automatic back-up inverter and there is 8.5 KVA auto back-up generator and a new sewerage treatment system was installed in 2016.
Environmental lifestyle properties offering business opportunity on this scale are rare. Totalling over 97 acres, South Bruny National Park surrounds this premium location with the property featuring a Blackwood forest, man fern glens, tea tree valley and white and blue gum forests that are the home and breeding ground for the Swift parrot.

Amongst the stunning rainforest on the acreage is a permanent spring-fed-creek and this provides unlimited pure water. The property holds a commercial water licence as well as riparian rights to this pristine water. Two 24,000 litre water tanks gravity feed to the homes with four wallaby proofed fenced paddocks supplied with self-watering troughs.
A unique feature are two hot tubs designed in the style of a Japanese wooden 'ofuro' bath, deep with steep sides. The term means "mind like water" or being relaxed and in the flow of life. The highly insulating properties of the western red cedar tubs will store the heat for many hours and outdoor bathing in hot water provides a unique contrast between the crisp night air and hot therapeutic mountain water, a truly relaxing experience and ancient tradition practised for centuries.
