Breathtaking views: Country life at its very best - The Weekend Australian
11 Cooper Street, Seymour, Tasmania
This magnificent oceanfront sanctuary represents an opportunity to pursue the ultimate escapist dream. Poised on a spectacular outcrop near Bicheno on Tasmania’s iconic eastern coastline, ‘Headland Estate’ spans some five acres and is encircled almost entirely by Crown Land, enjoying 300-degree views across some of the most beautiful and bountiful geography in Australia.
The impressive pavilion-style homestead is the perfect response to its pristine location – constructed from local materials to stand the test of both aesthetics and time. It offers three bedrooms and a study, though its clever design allows flexibility of use and options to seamlessly expand if desired (STCA). This is further supported by a well-appointed contemporary two-bedroom cottage in the grounds, to serve family, friends or luxury stays.
The entire holding is thriving, with beautifully presented native gardens and lawns and dotted with a series of well-maintained installations – a wine room, herb and vegetable greenhouse, automated hen house, expansive shedding for land and water toys, and a superbly appointed cray cooking station, where the morning catch is transformed into lunch almost every day.
And all around the drama and beauty that has made Tasmania’s east coast one of Australia’s favourite escapist destinations – just over 90 minutes from Launceston and two hours from Hobart Airport. A place to watch whales, dolphins, seals and penguins all day long. And enjoy some of the finest walks, food and wines in the world - the famous Bird in Hand winery having recently embarked on its spectacular Tasmanian venture just a few hundred metres down the beach.
A place that has been made to understand all that is required for a life well lived – and all that is not.
