“Historic Cambridge House”
Cambridge House is arguably one of the finest restored grand Victorian homes in the Huon Valley. Built in the 1870's, this Tasmanian Heritage Registered 6 bedroom, 6 bathroom home is set on more than half an acre over two separate titles with mature park like gardens meandering down to the Kermandie River and Platypus walk on its northern boundary. One of the first and most prominent homes in the area is seeking the next custodians of this beautifully presented property.
Whether you are looking for a large family home for you and the extended family, a business or a combination of both, this unique property offers huge potential and flexibility. Currently run as a successful BnB (check out their Tripadvisor reviews) in the fast growing tourism region of Geeveston - known for the TV Series 'Rosehaven' - as well as numerous food shows that feature the world renowned sushi chef Masaaki who has his restaurant in town. These are not the only attractions that draw visitors to the area. Geeveston is the closest accommodation to the Tahune Airwalk and Hartz Moutains National Park which is extremely popular with hikers, bush walkers and nature enthusiasts. The home is also centrally located to the Ida Bay Railway, Hastings Cave & Thermal Springs and some of the most beautiful waterways in southern Tasmania.
The home has been fastidiously maintained, renovated and modernised throughout the years whilst still retaining the charm and character of a grand Victorian residence. The bedroom suites come fully furnished with period charm and most have ensuites attached. The lounge, and dining areas are tastefully renovated whilst the covered verandahs are a perfect spot to read a book or just relax in the sun. The large, modern light filled kitchen is perfect with loads of storage and bench space and has magnificent views over the grounds and mature gardens. The owner's area is separate for privacy (if used as a BnB) and a full complement of workshops, sheds and garages are all here. In addition, the second title may possibly suit 3 self-contained unit's STCA if you are looking to expand in a region short of accommodation options or simply maintain the lovely garden areas already in place.
Geeveston, much like the rest of the Huon Valley is going through a change thanks to locals and new locals alike with fantastic artisans, food and farm gate produce offerings and a community that engages and promotes all the region has to offer. Under an hour's drive to Hobart in a clean and green environment with parks and walkways 50 metres from the property, it's a wonderful place to live.
