Lifestyle or Business Potential: Living The Dream in Forth, Tasmania

If you asked us to show you the quintessential Tasmanian home on the Northwest Coast, we would point you straight at this beauty.

With its origins dating back to 1868, this amazing, character filled home will evoke a 'WOW' from the minute you walk in the door.

From the timber floors to the high decorative ceilings, this home is an impressive blend of the old and the new.

Over the years it has had both residential and commercial identities, and zoning allows for you to explore business use as well.

Set on an idyllic 1266sqm (1/3 acre) block with running stream, there is an array of fruit trees, including: Apricot, Peach, Pear, Grapefruit, Grapevine, Lemon and Quince.

The history filled old shed is almost worth the price of admission alone!

The home itself comprises, downstairs:

  • Large chef's kitchen with gas stove and woodfire heater with open pantry
  • Jaw dropping lounge and dining room which has an almost theatrical vibe.
  • Bathroom with clawfoot bath
  • Large bedroom
  • Formal or getaway lounge/living room
  • Office
  • Laundry
  • 3rd Toilet


  • Primary bedroom with full ensuite
  • 2 further generous bedrooms

Everywhere you look you can't be anything but impressed and drawn into the charm.

Located in the heart of Forth, the famous Bridge Hotel (Forth Pub) and cafe is across the road, service station/general store/bottlo is across the bridge - and the sought after Forth Primary School is just around the corner.

Ulverstone to the west, and Devonport to the east are just ten minutes' drive away each.

This fantastic piece of Tasmania awaits the next person/people to love it and enjoy all the Coast and Village lifestyle has to offer.

Call us to arrange your viewing - today!

PS: A couple of questions that bob up...

"Has the house been subject to any flooding?" - No

"Are there heritage compliances over the home." - Only if you want to change the streetscape or footprint (extend/add on).
