That holiday feeling
DODGES Ferry is not just a place to live, it’s a haven for the lifestyle that homeowners Cindy and Garry Hart love to enjoy.
Garry has lived in the area for 15 years and Cindy for 25 and it is easy to see why Dodges Ferry is so appealing to them.
“We love the beaches, going diving for lobster or abalone, riding a jetski and Dodges Ferry makes all of this easily accessible,” Cindy said.
Garry said the seaside suburb has the feel of a holiday town.
“You can knock off work and immediately feel relaxed like you are on holiday,” he said.
The Harts build their Albert Ct house three years ago and had intended to stay put.
However, things change, and instead they have decided to downsize in nearby Carlton which will enable them to enjoy summers in Tasmania and hopefully travel in the winter.
Cindy said her favourite features of their home include its magical views, the warmth of the house with its insulation and double-glazed windows, and as a retired chef her impressive AGA stove.
They also have a fantastic party room with a bar and spa on one side of the property plus a tall 10m by 10m three-bay Dutch barn with a workshop on the other side.
The house boasts large, spacious bedrooms, expansive living areas with polished Tasmanian oak floorboards and a dream kitchen with a butler’s pantry.
This area opens to two entertainment decks.
In the main bedroom there is a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite.
All of the ceilings, external walls and floors are insulated with batts for year-round comfort.
Garry said Dodges Ferry was a good family area and from their house the local school was within walking distance.
Cindy said they had also had inquiries from retired couples looking for space and privacy.
With two hectares of bushland around this home, wildlife and privacy is in abundance.
