Beautifully presented with magnificent gardensSt Botolph, an elegant Victorian house built circa 1901, is located in the quiet cul-de-sac of Secheron Road in the historic suburb of Battery Point. Being close to the Derwent River with a north-easterly aspect, this area of Battery Point has always attracted substantial dwellings.
Set on a large, sunny block, the property is flawless in its presentation. A wide verandah extends around two sides of the house complementing the sandstone foundation blocks and window sills. At the front of the house are two spacious formal living or dining rooms with views through the bay windows to the gardens. The interior has been lovingly refurbished retaining much of the homes character including detailed architraves and cornices, and colourful leadlight windows and skylights. A classical archway leads from the wide entrance hall to the living and sleeping accommodation in the remainder of the house. A modern family kitchen with quality appliances combines crisp white cupboards with warm timber tones. Four double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a laundry, complete the home. A self-contained chalet comprising a mezzanine sleeping and living loft, with kitchen, dining, bathroom and laundry below, has been built across a paved and partly covered courtyard, and is ideal for guests, teenagers or other independent accommodation. Off street parking on both sides of the property are a substantial bonus in Battery Point.
Not only are the house and chalet presented with love and care, so too are the gardens. Brick paved paths lead up the gentle slope to exotic beds combining peony roses, bulbs, box hedges, miniature conifers, lavender and oriental trees such as birches and Japanese cherries and maples. Some paths playfully lead to nowhere in the heart of a garden, or towards the conservatory, while another meanders to the productive vegetable and fruit producing area. The whole garden has been thoughtfully landscaped and planted for all year colour and produce, creating a delightfully relaxed atmosphere.
Located in northern Battery Point, St Botolph is only a short walk from Salamanca Place and the Hobart water-front, as well as being close to local cafs and restaurants. Views from the verandah even take in the final minutes of the Sydney Hobart Yacht Race.
