One of the most exceptional houses in Hobart’s southern suburbs is now on the market for just under $5 million.
58 Napoleon Street, Battery Point’s lavender framed driveway leads to an an exceptional three-level building, built on the banks of the river Derwent.
Surrounded by native grasses and green lawn on a 1,030sqm block, a sleek glass and steel structure follows the contours of the hillside, contrasting beautifully with its square angles and rendered external walls.
Harrison agent Pam Corkhill says the four-bedroom villa was built in 2002 from a fantastic design.
“It’s absolutely stunning, it really is,” Pam says.”The quality has attracted a lot of interest from local, interstate and overseas buyers. I don’t think it will be on the market for very long.”
Double front doors open out onto a view of the river, a vista that reflects off the striking polished concrete floors. This river aspect integral to the property, and can seen from every room in the house thanks to its sweeping open-plan design. From the foyer, a polished concrete path flows out to three carpeted bedrooms, a modern bathroom and comfortable living area, before heading down to even more water.
Wooden stairs lead down to a glass-roofed indoor lap pool with views over the Derwent River, and access to a patio on the left. Across the pool, glass doors lead into the remainder of the house where a well-appointed kitchen and dining area, and a second, fire-warmed sitting room are waiting.
Separating the kitchen and sitting room are another set of wooden stairs leading down to the bottom floor – the master suite. A glass-walled bedroom opens onto the lawn, courtyard and terrace with the river just a few steps further.
This villa isn’t just close to the water. The Marieville Esplanade is only a short walk away, and the Sandy Bay shopping centre and Hobart CBD just a little further. Educational opportunities are with easy reach; it’s just a kilometer away from various private and public schools. For this striking river retreat, offers over $4,950,000 are being considered.
