Boat Shed 16 New Town Bay

Boat Shed Cornelian Bay New Town

Here is your chance to own the original boat shed built at Cornelian Bay. This 19th Century boatshed is lined with Baltic pine, is remarkably unchanged on the inside since it was built in 1890. There is a new Tas oak floor, new external boards, rewired, and new huge concrete pile footings which have been elevated making this the sturdiest of all the sheds, so that there is no flooding or movement. The ambience is amazing as you sit back in the largest open area of the bay’s boatsheds and watch your favourite yachts bob up and down . It is completely unmodernised or spoilt with Town water supplied to a simple 19th Century Kauri pine sink-top. This is a very rare offering being only 10 minutes from the CBD of Hobart, walk along the many foreshore tracks, or on the intercity cycle way to the Botanical Gardens. Only 2 minutes’ walk to the iconic Boat house restaurant. Positioned just under the bluff ensures an astonishingly quiet environment at all times of day and night.
This boatshed is a rare survivor of a very old design and layout because its simplicity and its charm have exerted an immediately peaceful and relaxing influence on the few lucky owners over 126 years. Be creative, write your novel, paint your masterpiece or just relax in any way you wish. The sounds of the river are around you, passing fish an odd seal the beautiful bird life, it can all be experienced here. This is an extremely rare offering so be super-fast to call Neville and get your opportunity to experience this today.
