Purchased in 2001 to protect the land from logging, this substantial parcel of over 150 hectares is a stunning showcase of natural Tasmanian beauty.
Situated just 20 minutes from Kingston and less than 30 minutes from the Hobart CBD, this extraordinary property presents a truly once in a lifetime opportunity to build your dream home and create your desired lifestyle.
Mount Herringback itself and the Herringback Private Forest Reserve make up just over 100 hectares of the property and are home to abundant native wildlife, breath-taking trees, striking grasses and ferns, and a number of rare and significant eucalypts and heaths. A further 50 hectares of bush and cleared pasture offers dozens of potential house sites, all with incredible views and expansive vistas.
Many of the cleared areas provide north to north-easterly orientations, allowing all day sun and a choice of panoramic views from the Mount Wellington Ranges, across Bruny Island to the Tasman Peninsula and beyond.
The headwaters for Cooke Rivulet and Fourteen Turn Creek are on the land which keep the dam levels high, providing ample water for crops suited to the soil type. Currently accessible all the way to the peak by 4WD, there are several fenced paddocks, a 7m x 12m hay/machinery shed and power on the block.
This is an exceptional property and needs to be seen to be believed. No photograph can accurately express the unique feeling of being in such a pristine environment, allowing peace and privacy close enough to city services that it can actually be part of the everyday experience.
Zoned forestry and bush / environmental living, this property provides the chance to live amidst rare beauty and capture the impossible, of which most of us can only dream.
