RARELY seen in Hobart’s real estate market, this superbly presented, spacious family home, offers a country style of life across 8700sq m of land, but on Hobart city’s doorsteps — about 2.9km from the GPO.
The home has a flexible floorplan that caters for a large family, with options for working at home, too.
Formal and informal lounge areas, a large kitchen and family dining area, five bedrooms, three bathrooms — it ticks a lot of boxes effortlessly.
A parent’s retreat is attached to the main bedroom with walk-in wardrobes, an ensuite and built-in wardrobes.
Access to the upper deck is from the formal lounge, bringing the outside in, as well as from the family dining area and main bedroom. Each takes in glorious views.
The expanse of windows in the upstairs living areas provides spectacular sun from early morning to mid and late afternoon.
The bottom level deck provides a more secluded, tranquil entertainment area.
There is also a rumpus room, a large storage area with shelving and benched access under the house, a spacious garage including shelving for tools, and a separate storage area for wine.
Some of the extra bonuses that come with this great family home are the double glazed windows on the top floor, 4kW solar panels, plus a security system with sensors in several zones across both floors, which is currently monitored.
There is also a keyless and key front door entry.
There are security screen doors on all single sliding screen doors and the downstairs bedroom windows have security screens attached.
There is ample carparking for guests, a storage room for a trailer and a garden shed.
When it is get-together time with family and friends, the wraparound sundecks will be the place to be.
South Hobart cafe, nearby schools, university and recreational spots all add to the enviable lifestyle.
The property borders on the Sandy Bay Rivulet where the sound of running water can put the owner in another world — how’s the peace and serenity?
For those that love nature, the property feels like a miniature forest with its plush greenery and visiting wildlife.
There is an enclosed area around the house for garden protection.
A 100 metres walk will take the owner to the beginning of the Pipeline Track, then the Waterworks Reserve and through Ferntree to Mount Wellington/kunyani.
This South Hobart acreage takes in views of the Derwent Estuary.
