Substantial Federation weatherboard, river viewsComprehensive renovations in 2009 have added both functionality and contemporary style, while faithfully protecting the character of the C1900 Federation period of architecture. A mere drive/walk-by will not suffice here, the relative seclusion and sweeping river views enjoyed from this substantial residence are a real surprise.
Upon entry there is secure level access with video intercom, CCTV coverage with NBN (direct connection)...An oasis of shrubs and ornamentals lead the eye to French doors, the warmth of central heating beckons...an expansive space comprising multiple living areas commands instant appeal!
Sundrenched window seating adjoins more formal living space. A multi- media nook with Bose surround sound is convenient to the decidedly gourmet kitchen with butler’s pantry. A Zanussi industrial gas oven and Smeg industrial dishwasher, ruby accent colours, dramatic lighting, artwork, stainless steel and the ambience of polished timber floors combine to inspire the most fastidious chef in this creative zone.
A wonderful formal dining experience, courtesy of mood lighting and gorgeous harbour views. There is a choice of outdoor dining areas just off the timber boardwalk.
Beautifully appointed, with enormous built-in wardrobes provides good storage throughout. The floor plan includes three bedrooms downstairs with a guest en suite. The main bathroom with concealed laundry services the living areas.
The generously proportioned study, adjacent to the original front door (or possible fifth double bedroom) with French doors and direct access to the garden, is a lovely room with pretty windows, features of the c1900 era still evident.
The superb master bedroom on the upper level with en suite and private sitting area opens to a private sun deck through sliding doors and magnificent harbour and mountain views. Worthy of mention is a walk-through dressing room which will truly impress! The bedroom configuration at number 145 allows for privacy and independent space for family members.
The property boasts excellent access under the house with a large wine cellar and small workshop...another toilet and hand basin and a spacious studio/office. An oversized double carport provides secure off street parking.
King Street is a fantastic central location, right in the heart of early Sandy Bay and its historic streetscapes. A fabulous gourmet food store and specialty butcher across the road is very convenient as is public transport, enabling one to leave the car behind, catch a bus, cycle or walk to the CBD. The waterfront and UTAS are close by...South Hobart and Sandy Bay shopping villages are in the vicinity.
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 stately contorted willow on the boundary affords privacy, seclusion, dappled shade in summer and welcome winter sun penetrates deciduous branches.
