Just a short distance from Hobart’s Southern Outlet lies a home of unique character and superb quality.
Situated on more than 20 acres of land, the three-bedroom home at 200 Proctors Road, Kingston – now up for sale – puts a distinctive spin on rural living.
It was one of the first homes in Tasmania to be built using a precast sandwich panel system, and the mosaic-style stone walls are fantastic.
A glass-framed grassy forecourt in the middle of the structure provides access to both wings of the house. Three bedrooms can be found in the western wing, with the master bedroom at the front of the house enjoying its own en suite and wall-to-wall windows offering bountiful views of the landscape.
The literal heart of the home is a central, cosy kitchen and dining area. In here the walls are painted a soothing pale blue, contrasting beautifully with the warm wooden walls and dark tiled floor. The space is defined by timber cabinets and storage spaces, crafted from rare Huon Pine, which marks the border between the kitchen and dining room.
In the other wing of the house is a wonderfully relaxed living room. Tucked away beneath exposed rafters, floor to ceiling windows flood the space with light, while underfloor heating keeps toes warm in winter. There’s plenty of space for couches and televisions, and even a raw timber staircase to take you to the second level!
A separate family room on the upper floor functions perfectly as a teenager’s retreat, expansive home office, or simply further entertaining. Up here the angled roof reaches its apex, and massive windows follow the roofline to take full advantage of that height.
A short distance from the main building is the homestead’s historical beginning. Built as the first residence on the property in the late 1980s, the walls are patterned with charming circular shapes. Roofed in curved timber, it comes pre-equipped with its own kitchen, bathroom, and enclosed mezzanine floor, making it ideal for a granny flat conversion or simply extra accommodation.
Also on the grounds are a large workshop, an established greenhouse with a hydroponic setup, a potting shed and a garden cage – everything needed to establish a self-sufficient lifestyle!
Expressions of interest are now closed, but it’s hoped to fetch a sale price of more than $1 million.
