THIS PROPERTY IS FOR RECREATIONAL USE ONLY
For those who would love a romantic hideaway where long lunches, an afternoon rendezvous or perhaps momentous celebrations can be had. The largest of the iconic Boat Houses that dominate the foreshore of Cornelian Bay and the only one boasting a jetty, this amazing offering is the perfect haven for you and yours to enjoy. Overlooking the calm waters of the Bay, where numerous pleasure craft are moored and where cormorants and cranes perch on the jetty awaiting their next feed with the shrill sound of the gulls being the only thing you may hear for some time.
Nearby is the well-respected Boat House restaurant comprising a casual dining outlet during the day and more formal cuisine in the evening. A designated dog exercise area to the northern end of the Bay provides much enjoyment for both the owners and their canine companions as well as a recently constructed children’s playground and recreation areas which can all be viewed from the deck. Stacker doors provide easy access to the well utilized deck area, inviting the inside out by way of extending the already surprisingly spacious living/dining area.
Where all of these facilities are within a few minutes stroll away, the seclusion of this property is amazing. Close the door and you could be anywhere in the world appreciating the serenity of this special property which has been totally renovated to create an exceptionally comfortable sanctuary.
#36 was originally built as a pavilion or dance hall at the western end of the line of houses in 1936, thus explaining its double size and different roofline. However, the original dance hall was seldom used and the building relocated to Lenah Valley in 1948. This boatshed was then built on the site for a short- lived commercial operation renting pleasure boats, hence the jetty, before morphing into its present incarnation as the “love shack”.
The generous proportions also accommodate a new light and bright kitchen, open plan living/dining, bathroom facilities including a new freestanding bath and composting toilet.
Why spend hours in the car when within 5 minutes of central Hobart you could be enjoying the solace of your very own ‘piece of paradise’.
Please note that this property is freehold for the building together with a crown lease for the water on which it sits to the high water mark. For further information please contact the agent.
