Swansea house description

Imagine waking up, lying in bed and looking out across glorious Great Oyster Bay and watching the sun rise over the Freycinet Peninsula. Imagine sitting on the deck with a chilled glass of champagne and watching a golden sunset reflected off the stone of the Hazards. Then later, luxuriating in the finest bed linen in your custom queen-sized bed drifting off to sleep with just the soft, distant sound of the waves breaking on the beach.

Simplicity, beauty and serenity. This is Peace and Plenty, a luxury retreat at Dolphin Sands near Swansea on Tasmania’s East Coast. Set in 5 acres, screened from the road by coastal forest with 200 metre beach frontage on magical Nine Mile Beach, it offers total privacy with panoramic views from freycinet to Maria Island. With its Tasmanian designed and manufactured furnishings, Peace and Plenty provides the ultimate Tasmanian experience with a touch of Asia. Featuring two self-contained guest wings, this is the perfect escape for discerning holiday-makers.

On arrival enjoy our complimentary offering of local wine. And after your sunset cocktails, indulge yourself for half-an-hour in our indoor spa/pool before cooking up a storm in the state-of-the-art all-Miele kitchen using vegetables and herbs from our garden and the non-perishables provided for you in our larder.

Right now our organic garden is thriving with vegetables while berry vines are taking a break. Tomatoes are ripening and lettuce is aplenty. you may need to wait a bit longer for apples. There may be still some peas, beans and broad beans. There are also plenty of herbs to add flavour to your cooking!

Peace and Plenty offers a unique experience. Reconnect with yourself, with your partner and with your friends in this very special piece of paradise.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: My husband and I love good design. quality homeware and good food. We believe in slow movement in today's fast moving world. Peace & Plenty is purposely decorated and furnished to cater for like minded people who want to slow down and enjoy quality life.

                      Why the Owner Chose Swansea:
                      We fell in love with Peace & Plenty at our first visit: breathtaking views, private beach 70 metres from the house, silence and the welcoming warmth of the well-positioned house. We have tried to seamlessly integrate quality design into the natural beauty of Great Oyster Bay: the house is decorated/furnished with high quality furniture, homeware and bespoke Asian wall hangings; the kitchen is equipped with all Miele appliances. Peace & Plenty is an unassuming beauty - revealing her elegance over the splendid waters as you are approaching. Dolphin Sands is the longest sand spit in Tasmania consisting mainly of the Nine Mile Beach Coastal Reserve separating the pristine and majestic Great Oyster Bay from Moulting Lagoon with just one point of connection at the far northern end. Here the Swan River makes the road a dead end, ensuring the area remains totally peaceful.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Total privacy, peace and quiet, effectively a private beach nine mile long; herbal vegetable garden; Heated spa/pool (2m x 4x) housed in a purposely built room; Tasmanian designed and manufactured furniture; Decorated with Asian textiles
