SOME of the most tightly held properties in Tasmania are not in an upmarket area or come with a million-dollar price tag in fact, they are not even houses.

The Cornelian Bay boatsheds have been a popular waterside feature for about a century and are some of the most hotly contested real estate going.

Now someone has the rare chance to snap up one of these heritage-listed sheds, with a newly configured 25-year licence opening up on shed No.9.

Featuring a mezzanine bunk space, potbelly heater, kitchenette, power, water and new deck, it is the ultimate spot for boating enthusiasts or those looking for a peaceful retreat.

Artists of all kinds have long been attracted to the boatsheds and set up studios on the foreshore of the River Derwent.

The shed is up for auction on April 6 unless sold earlier and the first "open shed" will be held next weekend.

"I expect serious bidding to be in the high $100,000s," Crowther Richards agent Neville Crowther said. "When I first started selling these years ago, they were going for about $30,000 but they've improved a lot since then.

"It's all about the location. You're not just on the water, you're over the top of it, so it's better than waterfront.

"You can lock yourself away here and do your art just escape from the world and yet you're still so close to Hobart."

The first boatsheds were built in the late 1890s.

Most of the 33 sheds were built between 1920 and 1930 and are now leased from the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment.
