Truely a beautiful property with your own stretch of the South Esk Blue Ribbon Trout fishing river.

If you have ever wanted to live the rural lifestyle with all the mod cons and unlimited water then 'LAT 41 South' is the property for you.
The 17 acre property sits on the banks of the South Esk river close to the headwaters. It has sealed road to both driveways and Launceston Airport is only 45 mins away.

The expansive residence can be configured to suit your own requirements with over half of the floor area set to a mezzanine.
Imagine sipping a cuppa or G&T on the veranda and listening to the river burble away in the distance, dinner is literally 40 metres away or go for a stroll along the river bank and watch the family of Platypus playing in the summer sun.
The home is freshly painted with a new kitchen, bathroom, picture windows, vynal flooring, block out blinds and extensive cupboard storage.

The kitchen features a British imported Belling 1100 Richmond electric stove, soft close drawers and an extra large Belfast sink, also a Fisher and Paykel two draw dishwasher (remember unlimited water) and a Miele side by side Fridge and Freezer. This extends into the dining and living areas all heated by a Tassie special Bell Brook slow combustion fireplace with inbuilt oven which is great for that slow cooked winter casserole when you've been outside working for the day.

The bathroom is enormous and features an elevated bath for views of the gardens and afternoon sun.
The whole house has five electric in slab heating zones but are rarely required due to the efficiency of the wood heater. There are two Aviation reverse cycle, remote controlled, ceiling fans that work well in all seasons.

The home theatre/lounge room is a bit of fun but also great for a Netflix binge on a cold winters day. The house is light and airy and suits all occasions.

There is an Australian Barn shed with his and hers man/she caves, it is 120 sqm with an extra high centre roller door which includes a remote controlled motor, the additional storage space or workshop is an amazing recent addition to the property with the ability to connect 3 phase power if desired. Perfect for that home business STCA.

There is a Taj Mah Chook house that will house more hens than you can imagine built adjacent the veggie garden/Orchard. The house yard is now fully fenced to keep in the family hounds and out the Autonomous Plant Pruners you may know as Wallabies.

Lat 41 South has an additional house pad area constructed at the other end of the property with it's own driveway and underground electricity recently installed. This is for a luxurious and exclusive tourist accommodation retreat that has been architecturally designed to compliment it's surroundings.
Development Application (DA) and Building Application (BA) having been approved and issued but recently lapsed. I have been advised that this can be revived without too much trouble if you desire to use the engineering and building plans or can submit your own plans for approval.

No neighbours in sight but they are there if you want or need them, we have a lovely community here and newbies are welcomed with open arms. We like to subscribe to the old traditions of neighbours knowing one another and having a real sense of pride in our ability to come together as a community.

The river that forms one of the long side boundaries is approx 1.8 kms in length and has all sorts of riparian waterways. Wildlife include Wallabies, Wombats, Brush tailed Possums, Tassie Devils, Fallow Deer, Echidna, Platypus, Brown and Rainbow Trout, Salmon and Freshwater Crayfish. The birdlife is prolific with a pair of nesting Wedgies seen regularly surfing the thermals, Yellow Tailed Black Cockies and Kookaburras. The little fellas are lively and include the Blue Fairy Wrens, Scarlet, Pink and Flame robins and assorted others. One day I even had a White Breasted Sea Eagle visit.

Come and have a look or even stay a while, I know you will fall in love with this place and will be able to see it as your very own sanctuary.

There is a 6mt Hydrotherapy Pool out on the back veranda undercover that stays at 35 degrees all year and a Toro Professional Z Master 600 ride on mower that can both be purchased in seperate negotiations if so desired.
