One of Bruny Island's most historic properties, 'Woodlands" on just over 100 hectares, has hit the market through Ken Jacobs of Forbes Global Properties with a price guide from $6.5million
The property was founded on an 1818 land grant to explore Captain James Kelly - the original 1829 homestead he built is still there and holds a place on the Tasmanian Heritage Register. It's an 1829 Georgian convict-built home that has been restored by its owners Brendan and Marlene Schmidt, former teachers from Geelong. The top of the property has a 360-degree panoramic view of the D'entrecasteaux Channel across to Port Arthur and up the Derwent Estuary to Hobart. 'Woodlands' includes significant tracts of native bushland and wildlife, including about 40 species of native birds.
