A remarkable retreat in a league of its own has hit Hobart’s real estate offering. Fusing legacy with heritage and style with sophistication, this handsome home is nestled behind an alluring façade and is steeped in a rich history that dates back almost a hundred and fifty years.
Surrounded by lush green foliage and beautifully established grounds, the house has been recently renovated to a meticulous standard and beautifully combines period features with contemporary style. Rich with a warm and inviting ambience, each of the rooms boasts an unrivalled vista of either the garden, city of waterfront, and are generously proportioned throughout. Boasting a flexible floorplan that lends itself well to modern family living, there are a plethora of spaces in which to revel in all the home has to offer.
The house consists of six bedrooms, four bathrooms, an interconnecting living and dining area as well as a separate formal lounge and kitchen and an entirely self-contained apartment with its own living quarters.
The master suite features an elegant en-suite and all the mod-cons one would expect from a house of this ilk, while the further bedrooms are serviced by a main bathroom with a freestanding tub.
The gorgeous wraparound verandah is just one of a suite of refined yet rustic features of the home that really give it its wonderfully nostalgic feel, and from the fireplaces a-plenty, to the servant’s bells, to the double cast iron cooking range with original tiles, to the exposed convict brick and stone walls, to the wrought iron accent on the verandah and a tessellated tile entrance, the character and heritage of the home is evident throughout.
Full of character and charm and with a desirable setting within easy reach of Hobart’s bustling CBD, this Hobart landmark won’t stay on the market for long.
