The views from this vacant lot in Flowerpot are simply stunning. There are two potential house sites, each with a unique perspective and panoramic outlook that would be very difficult to surpass. One site has an easterly outlook that captures all the beauty of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel, Bruny Island and beyond to the Tasman Peninsula. The other site has a northerly aspect capturing the not only the Channel and North Bruny Island, but also Tinderbox through to South Arm, as well as Mount Wellington. The lot itself is 6.88 hectares consisting primarily of light bush, but the two semi-cleared house sites will give the new owner a difficult decision to make as to where to build that dream home as both would be equally as rewarding. Having two potential house sites also provides the possibility of building a second dwelling for another family member or as an Airbnb investment opportunity (Subject to council approval). Access to the property is close to the main road, via Gallaghers Rd and is well cleared and driveable for four-wheel drive vehicles. Very private and quiet, this parcel of land is the perfect place to get away from the city life, to wind down and relax in peaceful surrounds with stunning panoramic views that will recharge your soul.
