It was not right until arriving at this Tasmanian beach shack a number of months later on that every thing clicked into location. ‘It struck me that this was the location of my aspiration.’

The splendor of the place is just that – it is a shack – and like all seashore shacks it just essential a little bit of TLC.’ 

These renovations have improved the property’s oceanfront area by introducing larger windows, an extended out of doors deck, hearth, fire pit and outside bathtub.
