Versatility, privacy and charm - water views and a sunny aspect


This delightful coastal cottage is set within carefully tended grounds that echo the landscaping of well-established botanical gardens. The owners, both keen gardeners, have planted a variety of native and exotic plants and shrubs chosen for the fragrance of their flowers, creating a sensory garden that offers appealing scents in all seasons.

The garden rises up from the lower boundary towards the house itself, which features an elevated and partly covered wrap-around deck, looking out across the sheltered waters of Daniels Bay. From the deck full-length glass sliding doors open into the open plan living/dining area, which has a striking hexagonal conical ceiling with timbered panelling between exposed beams. The hexagonal theme continues in the front section of the main wing, maximising window areas and making the most of the northerly aspect and lovely garden and water views. Also in this part of the house is the well-planned kitchen with high-end appliances including a Smeg range.

This main section of the home extends out into two similar-sized wings, one containing a study nook, master bedroom and ensuite; the other with two additional bedrooms (or one bedroom and one living room) and a full-sized bathroom. This wing has been successfully used in recent years as Air BnB accommodation. Flooring in the main part of the house is polished Tas oak, while carpeting elsewhere is new. There is a separate laundry. Heating and cooling is handled by a split-system reverse-cycle heat pump/air conditioner. Power bills are kept low by the 20-panel solar array on the roof, connected to storage battery and inverter.

There is a double garage and carport adjacent to the house. The garden in this area includes a large arched plastic-covered greenhouse and a second good-sized garden patch netted against wildlife. A keen gardener could easily feed the family with freshly harvested vegetables from these protected beds.

Access to the double garage is via a curving driveway from a gate just off Grundys Road, a quiet no-through road in a peaceful corner of Lunawanna. A circular loop of the driveway passes a large garden pergola, with seating and central firepit.

The jetty and boat ramp are just down the road and there are safe swimming beaches nearby. The Lunawanna Memorial Hall, scene of a fortnightly art, craft and produce market, is within easy walking distance, as is the Lunawanna café, which serves excellent coffee and delicious vegan pies three days a week. Also close by is the bistro and cellar door of Bruny Island Premium Wines. It’s just a 10 minute drive to Alonnah, with its hotel, shop, school, health centre, chemist and post office. Cape Bruny Lighthouse and the famous surf beaches of Cloudy Bay are both around 20 minutes away.

This uniquely-appealing, versatile and realistically-priced Lunawanna property could become a superior weekend retreat, an investment property earning good income from Bruny’s tourism scene or a comfortable, private and secluded permanent island home.
