Mercury (Hobart) - Property


With its abundant space, organic cherry farm, country lifestyle and beautiful home, it’s little wonder why No.141 has been a huge hit with buyers.



FROM the second No.141 Ayres Road hit the market, potential buyers have been buzzing about this superb country property.

Petrusma Property senior consultant Tony Dion said people were intrigued by its possibilit­ies.

“A lot of buyers from Hobart have said they like the idea of moving to the country,” he said.

“One of the changes Covid has made is that people now know they can work from anywhere, so why wouldn’t you want to live in the most fantastic place you can?

“Locals, interstate­rs, Hobart-based people, everyone wants to move to

Ranelagh to live the country life just a 35minute drive from our CBD.

“Having more land and space around you is important to people.”

While it has the architectu­ral look of a charming older home, this four-bedroom house was actually built in 2008.

For those seeking a modern and spacious family home in a rural setting, it would be ideal and is described as “move in ready” with nothing left to do.

Surrounded by stunning property estates, this two-level home is set on 5.55ha (about 15 acres).

Immaculate­ly presented, No.141 would be a perfect place to raise a family. Or for those looking at a tree change, the property offers the ability to derive a healthy income stream.

Mr Dion said its cherry orchard — Sakura Organic Farm — had played a large role in the popularity of the property among buyers.

The farm has a long establishe­d history as a producer of certified organic cherries with about 1000 trees ranging in age from five to 25 years old.

The sale will include all of the orchard equipment.

Mr Dion said the ability to work from home, work the land and the cherries, is hugely appealing to interstate buyers.

“It gives you the ability to work from home and make a bit of an income, it all sounds like a dream come true,” he said.

“There is a system in place for the cherry operation plus a lot of sheds, cool stores, tractors, and the current owner is happy to walk the next owner through it all and share the knowledge.”

Production typically runs from early December to late January.
