A natural haven on the forested slopes of kunanyi/Mt Wellington
- FERN TREE TAS
This outstanding property in two titles comprises approx. 39 hectares (96 acres) of magnificent mature eucalypt forest clothing the side of the valley descending from Summerleas Road into lush rainforest on the upper reaches of Browns River.
With access from Summerleas Road, the land offers a private and secluded potential building area of about 4 hectares (10 acres) on the upper section – a dwelling built here below the ridgeline faces north-west and would capture sunshine and views through forest to the Organ Pipes and the summit of kunanyi/Mt Wellington.
There are well-marked tracks along the top of the property and down to the rainforested banks of Browns River. Above, the forest canopy provides habitat for birdlife, including the very rare swift parrot and at ground level native wildlife is abundant.
The property is zoned Environmental Living, which allows for the construction of a dwelling within the building area. The balance of the land is protected under a Conservation Covenant, so the new owner will have the privilege of continuing the stewardship of the property’s natural values.
Within a 20 minute walk is the Fern Tree Tavern and Fern Tree Park, the main gateway to the network of walking and mountain bike tracks that criss-cross the flanks of kunanyi/Mt Wellington.
Hobart CBD is only a 15 minute drive away, or a 20 minute bus ride from Fern Tree Tavern.
This is a property for people who care about the environment and who are seeking to enjoy the appeals of living close to nature on the slopes of the mountain with easy access to all that Hobart can offer.
