Just a stone's throw from the water, this three bedroom, two bathroom home on an 1849m2 block offers a rare opportunity to obtain a virtual waterfront position where the sparkling views of Northwest Bay are only broken by a few beautiful eucalypt trees around the foreshore. In a quiet and private setting near the end of a no-through street, the home has a very relaxing and peaceful feel to it. The water views can be appreciated from several rooms including the master bedroom, formal lounge and the dining/family room. The timber deck is accessed via a sliding door from the dining/family room and is a wonderful place for enjoying barbeques with family and friends, or just relaxing with a quiet drink while taking in the fresh air and sights and sounds of the bay. The home was originally built in 1986 but the current owners have made some tasteful and practical improvements including a new, fully renovated kitchen with walk in pantry, dishwasher, double oven, soft close drawers, new floor coverings, reverse cycle heat pump/air conditioners and ceiling fans to maintain comfortable climate levels all year round. The spacious 1849m2 block (just under half an acre) allows for plenty of room for children to play and pets to run around. A single carport provides under cover parking, plus there is plenty of further off-street parking for more vehicles, a trailer or a boat. There are several sheds which can be used for storage and a workshop. Adjacent to the boundary is the start of the popular Dave Burrows walking track and just a one minute drive away is the Margate Marina which is currently being re-developed and will include a restaurant. Local schools and shops are within a couple of minutes' drive and Hobart is an easy 20 minute commute. It is not often that you get the chance to obtain a home in such a position, this close to the water and the idyllic lifestyle that comes with it.

"The Cove Kettering", a stunning opportunity located in a vibrant, coastal town in the D'Entrecasteaux Channel region of Southern Tasmania, only 30 minutes from Hobart. Constructed in 2012, the property artfully preserves a laid-back attitude and a sensitivity to the landscape, whilst recreating the look and feel of the seaside homes of the area, combined with the elegance and craftsmanship of today's modern living expectations. Its prominent position, just across the road from the Kettering Ferry Terminal, which is the departure point for Bruny Island, makes "The Cove" an incredibly sought-after visitor accommodation. The property is elevated, overlooking the Oyster Cove Marina and boasts a variety of spectacular marina and Channel views across its two levels. Whilst maximising access to these views was of primary importance, the design also focuses on efficiently open plan apartment types, cross ventilation, passive solar principles and generously landscaped communal areas to provide a high quality, residential environment for its occupants and visitors. Visitors' Accommodation: The ground level interiors are awash in natural light from oversized walls of glass which face the water. The guest area starts from the Reception and is an elongated, open space that includes the lounge/dining area featuring a fireplace, a separate fully equipped, commercial kitchen and the spacious, sunny balcony with outdoor dining that encourages social interaction. The common laundry space beside the Reception is also used as a storage area for the accommodation needs. Each of the three suites are situated to maximize the views, yet still provide privacy for the guests. The suites open to the spectacular outlook and the interiors have clean lines and are unadorned and minimalistic but still cosy and inviting, providing maximum comfort and versatility. There is an additional opportunity to convert the existing garage to an accommodation suite to increase the current income potential (STCA). Home: On the first level is the owner's residence or it can be converted to a family accommodation suite, subject to council approval, for those not looking to live onsite. The luxurious kitchen/dining/living area captures one of the most spectacular sea and marina views in all of Kettering. The design for this level focuses on the separation between the business and family life, offering an enviable lifestyle environment whilst still creating a thriving income. The Business: Currently operating as a successful accommodation business with a potential income of more than $100,000 a year, the visitors' accommodation will be sold as a going concern, on a walk in - walk out basis. Everything you could not even imagine you will need to keep operating will be included in the sale price. The kitchen is currently used to cater meals for in-house guests and has been providing an additional income for the owners, with further opportunity to expand the guests' dining area and to operate a caf/restaurant as the region has such a high demand for quality dining options, subject to council approval. The business has established itself as the front runner in the local tourism market being listed as the number one B & B in Kettering by Trip Advisor and winning their Certificates of Excellence in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017, also being awarded "2017 Recognition of Excellence" by Hotels Combined.
