Property Description

Windermere is a remarkable property in so many ways. This historic weatherboard homestead was built in 1905, during the Federation period, also known as Australia’s housing style, which was the prevalent architectural style between 1890 – 1915. Today the home is situated on 15.71ha with extensive infrastructure, multiple paddocks, and shedding – perfect as an equestrian facility, hobby farm or simply a grand family country home, located on the magnificent South Arm Peninsula and 30 minutes from Hobart’s CBD.

The restored homestead has many original features typical of the Federation period, including high ceilings, ornate fireplaces, tall brick chimney stacks, return verandah, pine floorboards, bay window and steep rooflines. The home is entered through a grand front entrance doorway and a long 13.5m hallway. There are three large bedrooms including the master with walk-in-robe and ensuite, as well as two further bathrooms. The front room could be used as the family study or a fourth bedroom. The country-style open plan kitchen includes extensive bench space and cabinetry, along with plenty of space for a large family dinner or alfresco dining on the interconnected outdoor decking area.
