The name “Santorini” was given to this property because of the owners love of spending time on the tranquil Greek Islands. Tam O’Shanter, with its beautiful, secluded, unspoilt beach and the crystal-clear waters of Bass Strait gives it a very Greek atmosphere and architecture hence, the colour scheme. A place to relax, enjoy nature and ideal for water sports, including surfing with the best wind swell surf in Northern Tasmania.
The owner chose the exact spot to live after flying over it for many years. It statistically has more sunshine than the Sunshine Coast of Queensland. It does not suffer from low onshore orographic clouds as it lies in a cloud shadow caused by the mountainous area to the west and the range of mountains extending south east, much like Nelson on the South Island of New Zealand. Because of this, it is warmer than anywhere further south and has a Warm Temperate climate, whereas the rest of Tasmania is Cool Temperate – according to an Australia gardening magazine.
This property lives up to its Greek-like atmosphere, with the tranquil sound of wildlife greeting you on approach. It is nestled low, out of the wind, in a cul-de-sac, on the Eastern end of the hamlet. In idyllic bush surrounds, this homestead offers potential buyers many opportunities to relax in comfort. The house was positioned ideally, NNE, with large windows to capture the winter sun throughout the day and avoid the hot summer sun in the late afternoon.
Just 100m from the beach, it is positioned on half an acre of premium land, you will find this the perfect place to call home with something for everyone. Alongside the property is another private cleared half an acre of Road Reserve which has lawn and a helicopter pad and is virtually inaccessible to the public. The river that runs through our property also runs alongside the Road Reserve and becomes an estuary to the sea. The property is also surrounded by beautiful Tea Trees and therefore there are no mosquitos. Just 500m up the road is the superb local, Tam O’Shanter Golf Club.
Nature lovers can explore the bush surroundings or view the many kinds of fauna that come alongside the river in the Road Reserve, including kangaroos, wombats, possums, blue tongue lizards, echidnas, native hens and parrots.
Green thumbs can find their delight in the gardening river valley (66m of terraced market garden beds divided by a small perennial stream) while those who like to get their hands dirty in other ways can tinker in the 3x3m and 2x3m sheds.
Step outdoors and immerse yourself in the coastal scenery, with plentiful grass area for the kids and a generous garden to accommodate any pets you have. The property is fully fenced, which extends 30cm beneath ground level to keep out the destructive native animals, and it is covered with bird mesh to deter snakes.
