This listing presents an unprecedented opportunity for an astute developer to craft Tarraleah into a contemporary tourist oasis, or return it to an esteemed residential estate reminiscent of yesteryear.
Our playground is approximately 147 hectares with six titles, superb infrastructure, town water supply, dam, electricity, sewerage, NBN infrastructure and road networks. Come with us as we take you through a guided tour of this remarkable property with endless possibilities.
The impressive entrance in Oldina Drive, flanked by silver birches and rhododendron, welcomes you to the township with open arms. You drive past The Edge and The Lodge, taking in the splendour of the manicured grounds, passing the historic Church and Scholars House to arrive at the Main Square.
Spoilt for choice with four bush walks over 300 acres, you elect to take the road less travelled by passing the Lakeside Villas and Caravan Park to cross the stile towards the Tarraleah Lake. The lake is brimming with stocked brown trout: the perfect spot for a bit of fly fishing, kayaking, or friendly water sports. As you pass, you marvel at the sizeable lakeside land – vacant, primed for housing development with 21 lakeside homesites, with the construction and masterplans already in place and just brimming with potential.
Walking back through the re-zoned Residential Village, you wander through the impressively redeveloped roads and buildings. You marvel at the kaleidoscope of pastel-coloured cottages and imagine the addition of new environmentally-developed abodes.
LET’S GO PLAY
Is Tarraleah to grow into its potential as Tasmania’s premier foodies destination, offering a unique paddock-to-plate experience highlighting the best Tasmanian produce, picked by hand, tasted in the cooking school, before retiring with a glass of Tasmania’s finest in world-class accommodation?
Is it to surrender to the beauty and healing qualities of the abundant flora and fauna to become an internationally recognised rehabilitation and wellness retreat or spa district, perhaps introducing equine therapy, yoga and holistic treatments and restorative accommodation options?
Is Tarraleah and the surrounding state forests to be the perfect setting for developing Australia’s premier mountain-biking and adventure tourism hub, capitalising on the booming demand for destination rides by adventure tourists the world over?
Or is it to return to the nostalgia of yesteryear, expanding the village through strata investments to cultivate a premium timeshare or ‘shack community’ that would be the envy of all those seeking the relief of the open air, wildlife, fly fishing and, of course, 9 rounds of golf a mere moment away.
