Private House For Sale By Owner In Franklin, Tasmania
This faithfully-restored and characteristic cottage in the centre of the picturesque Huon Valley township of Franklin, is less than 100 metres from the Huon River and within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, the community boating facilities such as the renowned Tasmanian Wooden Boat Centre and the Living Boat Trust and the century-old Palais Theatre with its farmers market, films and live theatre.Only an easy 35-minute drive from the centre of Hobart and 20 to Kingston or Cygnet, this historic home is a highly affordable opportunity to downsize to a smaller footprint and become part of a thriving and active community.

The rear garden encompasses a timber pergola covered with vines of edible grapes, and outdoor dining area, garden storage shed and a secure compact workshop, plus a productive kitchen garden, lawn and fencing.This is a walk-in opportunity with nothing to do, yet has room for expansion if required and is fully accessible with only one step at the front of the house and none at the rear or internally.Access is by a private driveway and the block of land immediately behind the cottage is reserved for a green nature buffer.
This house is characteristic of Franklin’s original town plan created by Lady Jane Franklin in the mid-1800s and its gorgeous front is part of the heritage street-frontage of the township. This cottage has retained its sprawling rear views across agricultural and bushland hills that frame the picturesque Huon Valley.Quarterly Expenses: $236 Water; $139 Council Rates.
