 Sale Details:

   Lew and Pam Bretz offer for sale their two houses, restaurant and allied buildings at 824-5 Elephant Pass Road, St Marys, for $1.175 million plus SAV, subject to the following clause:

  • restaurant to continue under management of the current Lessee for 3 years following sale, with rent paid to the New Owner as at present.

  • Vendors may require up to three months storage space in the 'bush shack' (825 Elephant Pass Road ) while moving into another residence.  Vacant possession will apply to the main property and its houses (824 Elephant Pass Road) on settlement date.

 Privately Residing at Mount Elephant:

    Both houses have kitchens, dining areas, bathrooms --each with its own bath-- and two bedrooms. The larger home has a laundry and a large entertainment area with panoramic views of the Douglas Apsley hinterland and ocean beyond. The front entrance, kitchen and bedrooms all have wide-ranging views. The effect is one of being “open to nature” without others intruding on your domestic space.

When owners are away, having a restaurant at front being open every day is an excellent security feature. So Mount Elephant is not just a great place to live, but an easy place to leave for travel interstate or overseas without the usual uneasiness about being away.

  Tourist influx is a constant occurrence in Peak Season, between Christmas and Easter, when over two-thirds of visits occur . But even then, the owners-in-residence will most often hardly hear the business operating at front. For the rest of the year, little activity is noticeable by anyone living in "on site."

In and around Elephant Pass…

At Mount Elephant Pancake Barn, tourist influx is a constant occurrence in Peak Season. Roughly 70 percent of visits occur between Christmas and Easter. But even with such comings and goings the owner-in-residence can hardly hear the business operating at front. For much of the year outside that peak period, little activity is noticeable by anyone living in the two on-site houses.

  You'll meet most daily needs--groceries, post, banking, pub with bottle shop etc, --in St Marys, just 8 km away. Television antennas and a satellite dish on the main residence enable you to stay in touch wtih others via Skype, Austar etc.

  Ten minutes from Elephant Pass is unspoiled Little Beach, several kilometres in length. Few visitors are there except for the summer campers at two nearby campgrounds during Peak Season. Nearby is Four Mile Beach and a fifteen minute drive in other direction takes you to the picturesque town of Bicheno. 

LAUNCESTON, 90 minutes from Elephant Pass, is convenient for "power shopping" at K-Mart, Myer, Bunnings, Woolworths/ Coles etc.
