The townhouse-styled Shed stands alone. It looks very different, still a bit like the old shed it once was: inside it is high tech and exciting with glass everywhere, racked ceilings and timber floors.
The split level Shed is spacious at over 70sqm plus large outdoor entertaining decks. The lower level area includes a well equipped kitchen/dining area with all the mod cons.
The Shed is stylish and luxurious with leather armchairs and a large leather sofa with wonderful views everywhere, all opening onto a large wraparound deck with spectacular views.
A computer work bench with USB charging points and a Bluetooth Bose sound bar looks over the river into the mountain bush land; there is also FREE fast Wi-Fi and a high speed SmartTV.
On the upper level there are two bedrooms each with large built-ins. The queen bedroom has lovely river bush views and the second room has two single beds. All linen and doonas are high quality.
Even the walk in shower has its own viewing window looking across the river and mountains from within the striking bathroom with its heated Spanish floor tiles.
There is also a fully equipped laundry and the whole space is heated or cooled by a powerful Fujitsu reverse cycle pump.
Out back you have a large yard, garden table and your own private bike and luggage storage shed; private parking is available.
Feeling peckish? You can easily prepare a delicious meal in the Shed s fully equipped kitchen and dine-in with style; or enjoy a simple BBQ and the views on your private decks.
It is just a short stroll to Derby s bike shops, shuttle services, pubs and cafes.
Derby s historic Postmaster's has been recently renovated with the original Lodge and its Main Street Apartment providing accommodation for families and groups, the just completed Shed is designed for up to four guests.
The Shed is all yours and has its own private entrance with a coded access.
There are sensor lights for the evenings.
Your secure bike and luggage storeroom is just off the back decks.
The Postmaster's has a large backyard and garden which may be shared from time to time with guests from the Lodge and Main Street Apartment with minimum impact on your privacy.

Note: No bikes inside. Racks and storage is provided. Bike wash is just across the road.
The township itself is the perfect spot not just for the famous Blue Derby MTB Trails but for bush walking, fishing and kayaking.
It is a great base for touring Tasmania s beautiful north eastern wineries, waterfalls, forests and beaches: for example it is just 90 minutes from the spectacular Bay of Fires and 60 minutes to the famous Pipers Brook Vineyard.
Derby is also home to the annual madcap Derby River Derby and regularly hosts the best MTBers from around Australia and overseas for events such as the upcoming Enduro World Series.
Derby is an ideal stopover if you are traveling to the beautiful East Coast from either Devonport or Launceston and is just an hour from St Helens.
By the way, if you are planning on traveling onto Hobart your co-hosts Grant and Luise also have 3 modern apartments in their recently renovated building in North Hobart, just 5 minutes from the local entertainment strip. There is a spacious 2 bedroom apartment sleeping up to six and two stunning studios ideal for couples but with sofa beds for an extra two guests.
