It’s been described as one of the most remarkable properties in Hobart, and now this palatial Sandy Bay estate is on the market for offers above $3 million.
Commanding panoramic views of the River Derwent, the five-bedroom home occupies a 1,750sqm double block on Sandy Bay’s Amanda Crescent.
Peterswald agent Kim Morgan says the home is opulent, beautiful, and spacious.
“It’s presented beautifully with a high level of detail, and the views are extraordinary,” he says. “The current owners have added and improved and completed extensive renovations on the site, so it’s state of the art. I’d love to live there myself!”
Two separate, gated entrances allow access up a paved drive, eventually leading to a grand, marble-lined foyer. The first of three levels, the ground floor contains a private library and a truly incredible media room. Velvet curtains block out the light to provide perfect viewing of the projector screen, while the built-in bar and wine storage ensure refreshments are never far away!
A sweeping marble staircase transports you to the central level of the home. Multiple formal and informal living and dining spaces can be found here, along with a kitchen, home gym, and best of all, an indoor pool.
Sharing space with two hot tubs, a sauna, and a workout space, the indoor pool is a delight. A wrap-around terrace lets the breeze flow throughout the room, contributing to a resort-style atmosphere.
“It feels like you’re coming home at the end of the day to a holiday,” Kim says.
“It’s fully fenced, private and secure, but it’s such a relaxed lifestyle.”
At the other end of the floor, a walk-through kitchen with fantastic views of its own has plenty of space to maneuver. Granite benchtops, premium appliances and custom shelving contribute to a sense of luxury, and there’s immediate access to both dining rooms!
There are two staircases leading up to the living quarters on the top floor. Two marble-lined bathrooms service the five bedrooms spread across this level, but the masterpiece is the master suite.
A small flight of stairs leads up to a bespoke, open-plan suite with uninterrupted water views. The bedroom and en suite are open-plan, with a separate powder room by the executive walk-in robe. A massive raised spa bath in the corner of the room has incredible views of the River Derwent, and you can pop outside for an even better view on your own private balcony!
There’s no shortage of terraces and balconies throughout this expansive estate. On the ground floor, a sheltered rear courtyard is a perfect spot for an intimate gathering, while the sun-soaked terrace on the top floor provides the perfect sunset viewing platform.
“There’s no shortage of beautiful homes in Sandy Bay, but to have a house that offers more than 600sqm in its floorplan, with that indoor swimming pool, the wine cellar, and the bedrooms at the standard they are – that’s rare,” says Kim.
“It’s the sort of property a lot of people aspire to own, and it’s been attracting a lot of attention.”
