41 Wetlands Road, Palmerston 9430
Waking every morning to an ever changing view over the Pleasant River wetlands and out to sea, with your very own island and no near neighbours to bother you is a pretty good way to start the day.
This comfortable and welcoming three bedroom home includes a little over five hectares of land, some fenced into paddocks around the house, the rest an island separated from the mainland by the Pleasant River. The pole built house with its colour steel cladding and re-purposed timber window is 15 years old, and is designed for open plan living and to make the most of the views over farmland, the river and out to sea which can be seen from every window.
The living area contains the kitchen with a gas stove and built in cupboards, plus an antique timber original shop counter separating it from the living area and providing a focal point. There is space in this large room for the dining area and plenty of comfortable seating.
The rest of the home contains one large double and two good sized single bedrooms, a bathroom with bath, timber vanity, toilet and a large shower. There is a separate laundry and the water is heated by gas.
Across the north facing side is a huge veranda, providing sheltered outdoor seating and heaps of storage for firewood as well as a perfect environment for plants and a huge and very productive grape vine.
The property is reached via a gravel drive and there are several outbuildings including a powered workshop, two carports and storage shed. The four paddocks are fenced for sheep and there is a two bay barn and hen house. The house is surrounded by an easy care garden with mainly native trees and shrubs which attract a variety of native birds plus a vege garden and tunnel house. The land is fenced into four paddocks and the boundary is planted with well grown shelter and firewood trees.
The island is accessible by foot at low tide or by boat when the water. It is not fenced and is home to a variety of sea birds and an occasional visit from sealions.
The property is reached from Wetlands Road which gives public foot access to the Pleasant Valley wetlands.
