Stepping through the grand entrance into the wide hallway lined with Tasmanian Oak floorboards, the expanse and elegance of this 1930s home is immediately evident with contemporary style complementing the period features it retains.
Recent renovations have created a free-flowing space throughout the living areas of the home coupled with an extension to include a brand-new kitchen, casual dining/family room and top-floor living space. From the formal front living room, magnificent mountain views are framed by large windows that flood the home with natural warmth and light. Sliding doors open into a dining room where an original fireplace with ornate mantle is on display.
A dining/family room sits adjacent, with custom-built shelving and exposed painted brick. The luxuriously large and light-filled Hamptons style kitchen oozes refined elegance and has been created to maximise functionality. Granite benchtops glisten under designer lighting, complemented by premium stainless-steel appliances. An under-floor wine cellar, concealed within the floorboards, makes mealtimes and entertaining a delight.
Continuing on the ground floor, three generous bedrooms can be found, with the accommodation at the front of the home enjoying a front-row seat to the views stretching up to the mountain and leafy park across the street. The bedroom to the rear opens into the sunny backyard. Servicing this level, the spacious bathroom contains a walk-in shower, bath and vanity with a separate toilet nearby.
Custom-built display shelves sit opposite the staircase, which ascends to the upper level. An enviable library greets you at the top, with a bedroom with built-ins, an elegant en-suite and sitting room all bathing in sunshine from the angled skylights.
Downstairs once more, outdoor entertaining options are endless. Glass doors open onto a private courtyard and the timber deck that hugs the rear of the home. Luscious green lawn surrounds a sensational garden full of home-grown produce with apple, pear, quince and hazelnut trees and multiple vegetable and herb patches. Roof solar panels aid the home’s energy efficiency.
With no stone left unturned, a purpose-built barn continues the home’s contemporary style outdoors, with ample room for storage, gardening equipment or to re-purpose into additional accommodation if desired. Inside the home, large under-stair closets and hall cupboards provide convenient internal storage space.
The semi-circular driveway at the front of the home makes arrival and departure to and from the main road easy, with plenty of parking space available for multiple vehicles.
Exuding understated elegance at every turn, with no expense spared, this contemporary residence provides an exceptional standard of living within one of Hobart’s most sought-after suburbs.
