Position, panoramas and privacy on KingFederation charm meets modern architecture and contemporary design at this private, gracious, triple level address...just two owners have enjoyed the privilege of owning this property since 1990. Comprehensive renovations in 2009 have added both functionality and style, while faithfully protecting the character of the C1900 period.
Level access from a secure gate/perimeter, with video intercom, CCTV coverage and NBN available. An oasis of shrubs and ornamentals lead the eye to French doors. The warmth of central heating and a spacious entrance foyer with sunny window seats, complete with clever storage underneath, is instantly appealing.
An expansive, formal living room and adjoining library, extends to a wonderful gourmet kitchen and butlers pantry. Prepare to be impressed with the blend of commercial appliances, a Zanussi gas cook top, accent colours, dramatic lighting, art work, stainless steel and the ambience of polished timber floors to inspire the most fastidious chef in this creative space or take a break for the news of the day in the offset home theatre alcove, complete with a Bose surround sound system.
A strategically placed island bench housing both red and white wine fridges is the prelude to a superb formal dining experience which extends to casual outdoor living. A deck and BBQ area, showcasing panoramic harbour views and a sparkling city lights display in the evening. The entertainer will be seriously tempted!
Beautifully appointed, with generous built-in wardrobes providing good storage throughout. A walk-through wardrobe ’to die for’ in the upstairs master bedroom is worthy of mention. The floor plan comprises three bedrooms downstairs for the family including a guest en suite. The main bathroom is on the living level, plus a powder room for convenience. The study, (or possible fifth double bedroom) with French doors and direct access to the garden, is a lovely room and currently in use as an art studio/professional rooms.
As if the wow factor of the chefs kitchen wasnt enough, the parents’ retreat truly does take this residence to the next level. The huge upstairs master bedroom with en suite and private sitting area opens to a private sun deck through sliding doors and magnificent harbour and mountain views.
The property boasts excellent access under the house with a wine cellar and small workshop...another WC and a spacious studio/office or workroom. Two cars under cover with secure parking (off King Street) complete this most desirable opportunity to purchase. A fantastic central location, right in the heart of early Sandy Bay with a mini supermarket and specialty butcher. Opposite public transport, literally to your door, enables one to leave the car behind, catch a bus, cycle or walk to the CBD. UTAS is also within walking distance as is South Hobart and Sandy Bay shopping villages. Nearby are a wide choice of eateries, the stunning Fitzroy gardens and Parliament Street Reserve and playground.
Leafy, mature gardens are landscaped and irrigated. Mixed plantings include roses, hydrangeas, irises, rhododendrons, peonies, wisterias, birds of paradise and a show-stopping Mt Fuji weeping cherry. Magnolias as well as fruit trees galore, lemon, apricot, apple and plum trees add to the charm. A fabulous contorted willow on the boundary affords privacy and seclusion. A mere drive by will not suffice, the surprise is inside!
