‘Whispering Woods’ is undeniably a one of kind property without parallel. This very special holding has been lovingly developed over time to create its very own absolutely charming village like atmosphere, set on just under 19 beautifully cared for private acres at the base of Mount Roland and bordering the Dasher River, in the charming hamlet of Claude Road within the Cradle Mountain region of Tasmania.
On entering the tree lined driveway of this outstanding property it is immediately apparent this holding is exceptional, with an almost dreamlike quality to it. Picture perfect buildings and outbuildings are centred around what is affectionately known as ‘the village green’ and have been lovingly constructed by a local craftsman with woods hand hewn from trees within the property. It is hard to imagine something more stunning to the eye. All of these charming buildings have been recently renovated to present a stylish and sophisticated property without compromising any of its old world charm.
The main building is home to a new light and bright kitchen complete with new oven dishwasher, range hood, island bench and soft-close drawers that flows through to the living zone complete with fabulous Republic Wood Heater. This building is completed with a second room perfect as a bedroom or study / office. Next stop around ‘the green’ is a fabulous rustic bathing house with iron bath and stunning interior. On to one of the first accommodation buildings which includes a King suite, kitchenette and ensuite. The second of the accommodation buildings boasts a large bedroom downstairs and large, long gable roofed bedroom/s upstairs. To the other side of the main building is another deceptively large building that houses a living room, bedroom, bathroom and the laundry area. This building has been used a a farm gate shop for the present owner’s honey business and previous owner’s wood working business and is large enough to be utilised for a multitude of purposes.
Around the green, delightful outbuildings include a barn with open fire, rustic interior and wall of gorgeous wooden doors that open directly onto the green – perfect for family gatherings or entertaining on a large scale – having been the location for weddings, music events and more. Behind the barn is a small workshop and next to that the wood fired pizza oven. A wood shed, cubby house and charming chicken shed plus other smaller outbuildings complete this truly unique, one of a kind holding.
The secluded 7.66 hectares of land is divided into 7 fully fenced paddocks , two with electric fencing and with water to 5 of the 7 paddocks. There is a large, meticulously laid out and cared for no dig organic vegetable garden, a lovely small orchard boasting apple, apricot, pear, peach, nectarine, quince, cherry and plum trees, there are berries, elderflower and more.
A wonderful small pine woods, two dams, river with trout running, botanical style gardens flowering year round, prolific birdlife and stunning scenery set this property apart from any other.
