Off Grid and Self-sufficient - 2 Bedroom House on 2.75 Ha in Tasmania

Sitting on two lots totaling 2.75 hectares (6.75 acres) in a tranquil rural setting, this property ticks multiple boxes for those looking to enjoy a self-sufficient lifestyle.

The two-bedroom house (built-in 2018 and only eight minutes south of Smithton) has double glazing, roof and wall insulation, and its north facing aspect delivers passive solar heating. A wood stove provides the minimal heating needed, as well as two ovens and a hot plate surface for cooking.

In addition, the eco-friendly house has:
• a 4kW solar system with battery storage
• a diesel back-up generator
• three 24000 litre water tanks
• an on-demand gas hot water system

There is access to power at the boundary if desired.

Internet access is via wireless NBN, and there is mobile phone reception via Telstra and Optus networks and their resellers.

Divided into four paddocks with well-maintained fences, the property includes:
• Double garage with workbench
• Open bays for hay/machinery storage
• Cowshed, chicken house and pig pen
• Wooden shed used for tools and feed storage
• Sheep shelters and race

The property, which is zoned 'rural living', currently supports:
• One Jersey and one Dexter cow, both of whom have previously calved
• Two Jersey cross steers
• Four Wiltipoll and two Wiltshire sheep (no shearing required)
• Four Muscovy ducks and a drake, and three chickens.

A third steer is being agisted.

There is a large well established vegetable garden which produces abundant vegetables, garlic and herbs. For fruit, there are:
• Two apple, one nectarine, two plum and two apricot trees
• Redcurrant, blackcurrant and raspberry bushes
• A very productive strawberry patch

The owners have been self-sufficient in meat, eggs and vegetables for the past two years.

If you are looking for a tree change far from the hustle and bustle of city life, the opportunity to be self sufficient, grow your own organic fruit and vegetables, and raise animals in an ethical way, this is the property for you.

A 'walk-in, walk-out' arrangement under which all stock, tools, garage shelving and furniture would be transferred to the new owners may be negotiated.
