Best View in Derby on 4 Acres!
Is this the best view in Derby? This gorgeous property sits on a huge 4 acre block and features an architecturally designed 2 bedroom home built to capture the view while making the most of clever environmental design. All the cleverness aside though, this home is just super cool. Built in 2014 around an open void, and utilising interesting recycled timber furniture from around the globe, it has a warm and interesting vibe that invites you to kick back and stop a while.

The open plan lower level consists of a kitchen/living/dining room all built around a freestanding wood heater that keeps the entire house warm. The large picture windows capture both the views and the thermal energy to make this house very warm in winter. The kitchen features gas hot plates and electric cooking plus bespoke cabinetry lovingly up-cycled from vintage furniture. Very cool!

The ground floor houses a generous bathroom which features a shower, vanity, and a toilet. A second toilet is situated upstairs off the bedrooms, through the dressing room. The spacious laundry is tiled in a modern green tone and leads you directly out to the back yard to hang out the washing.

Upstairs, the mezzanine floor is open plan and divided into two bedrooms by the void space. One bedroom has its own balcony from where you can drink your morning coffee while looking at all of Derby, including the old Mine hole (or Derby Lake as you may know it) which is accessible for riding, walking, swimming and canoeing, plus it is well stocked for trout fishing. This is pretty unique.

Among the gardens is a large exterior plumbed bathtub for under stars bathing, as well as an orchard of 80 hazelnut trees with several other areas of quiet reflection and serenity that attract an abundance of native birds. Of course this large allotment of land is perfect for a variety of uses, including sub division and further building of accommodation (STCA). This block enjoys all day sun, and its position high on the hill makes it a fabulous building site with great views as well as excellent temperatures.

Outbuildings include a Bessa brick shed (8 x 5m) and a smaller garden shed.

Derby is home to the Blue Derby Trails which is widely recognised as Australia's mountain biking capital, confirmed by the recent returning Enduro World Series (EWS) held in March 2019.

Derby is 34 km from Scottsdale and 95 km to Launceston. According to local Council (Dorset) who track visitor numbers, 30,000 visitors rode the trails last year and approximately 50,000 are expected this year. Tourism is booming in NE Tasmania with Internationally ranked Barnbougle and Lost Farm Golf courses, wineries and of course MTB trails on our doorstep.

There is still a very high demand for visitor accommodation and this unique property is a large land allotment basically right in the middle of Derby, a 3 minute bike ride to the pub, 4 minutes to the trail head with a gorgeous and interesting near new house on it, ready to rent out or live in. There is also ample room to build more accommodation. Can you hear that cash register ringing?
