Luxury, complete privacy & absolute waterfront is yours.
Here you will experience uninterrupted views of the estuary while you contemplate the possibilities of kayaking, fishing, cooking in the gourmet kitchen or taking in the magical water views from the king-sized bed and living areas. We are well located for day trips to the nearby award-winning Coal River wineries, historic Richmond, the Tasman Peninsular, East Coast beaches and more. * See below for helicopter news!

The space
You will love our place because here you will feel nurtured by nature in total privacy on an absolute waterfront setting overlooking Pittwater, Borilla Bay and the many oyster farms dotted throughout the estuary.
At Oysterhouse there is an intimate relationship with the water and shoreline.
Staying in Oysterhouse is a premium luxury experience. You will have stunning unparalleled ever-changing views where at every turn floor to ceiling double glazed windows frame the estuary allowing you to observe nature from extreme comfort no matter what the weather. Huge bifold doors open on to expansive decking where you may chose to relax on one of the outdoor bean bags, fish off the deck or dine al fresco.
Nearby is a registered Ramsar international bird sanctuary providing habitat for migratory shorebirds and regionally significant flora and fauna.
Seals are often spotted and pods of dolphins are also sometimes seen.
The property sits on 7.5 acres (3 hectares) of absolute waterfront with several of its own private beaches where you can launch the kayak (life jackets provided) or just take a stroll and at low tide harvest your own oysters.
To visit you will leave the main road and enter a private road at the end of which is a historic railway cutting; this is Oysterhouse's private driveway.
In the evenings and early mornings expect to see wallabies, possums and echidnas.
The house is extremely spacious and the lounge is very comfortable with a cosy slow combustion fire, 65inch Smart TV, DVDs (in the cabinet there is an extensive range of DVDs), stereo and radio.
There is a large selection of books and a range of board games.
Heating and cooling can also be achieved from the reverse cycle air conditioner.
There is a gourmet kitchen with fan forced oven, gas plates, microwave/convection oven and steam oven and enough appliances to allow you to cook up a storm.
The master bedroom suite has the essence of a luxury resort. There is a luxury king bed where you can relax and enjoy the uninterrupted views over the water. The other bedrooms are very comfortable, carpeted and have luxury linen.
In the European laundry there is a front-loading washer, washing powder, iron and ironing board.
Older children will love the property but it is not ideal for very little ones due to its proximity to the water however if you wish to bring young children this can be discussed.

*Looking for a truly special treat? Oysterhouse has its own helicopter pad! If you would like Tasmanian Air Tours to pick you up from the property and take you on a bespoke tour, a picnic on a private beach, a visit to a Coal River Winery or a trip to the city of Hobart contact us for further details.

Where you’ll be

Penna, Tasmania, Australia

The unique feature of this property is its complete privacy, absolute waterfront setting and history. As you go through the gates you will be entering a historic railway cutting. This dramatic cutting with cliffs of 20 plus metres high was built in the 1880s to transport passengers and goods from the nearby town of Sorell to Bellerive on the eastern shore of Hobart.
