Elegant lifestyle & locationThis beautifully presented family home is all about location and lifestyle. Situated in the prestigious Nutgrove/Sandown area of Lower Sandy Bay, it is a fine example of classic Inter-war architecture. Built in 1937, 2 Beechworth Rd enjoys a prime location adjacent to parkland and Long Beach Reserve, ensuring permanent views to the River Derwent. Being one of the few flat areas in Sandy Bay, it is ideally suited to walking and other sporting and recreational activities. A wide boardwalk meandering around Sandy Bay Beach to Blinky Billy Point, and the nearby fenced childrens playground are features of the area, not to mention the popular Sandy Bay Sailing and Croquet Clubs. The Lower Sandy Bay shopping precinct with its variety of amenities from doctors surgeries to a post office, shops, cafs and restaurants, has a delightful village atmosphere. A regular bus service and bike lane connects this area via Sandy Bay Road to schools, the university and other facilities of Sandy Bay and the Hobart CBD.
The house itself is set on a double block surrounded by established gardens incorporating a fishpond, gazebo and neatly manicured hedges. The impressive portico opens onto the neutral tones of the foyer and neighbouring rooms, enabling a full appreciation of the homes architectural features from the beautifully moulded architraves, cornices and covered beams, to the leadlight doors and period window-frames. The formal living and dining rooms are balanced by the more casual open plan kitchen/dining/family area towards the rear of the house, which is separated from a wood panelled morning room by a laundry and a downstairs bathroom. A paved outdoor entertaining area complete with a pool, spa and sauna complex is accessed from the casual living room. This whole area is tastefully enclosed in a conservatory style structure, complementing the 1930s design of the original house. On the upper level are four double bedrooms, a family bathroom, and a library and adjoining office, which could be converted to a fifth bedroom. All bedrooms have views to the river, the spacious master bedroom, with its walk-in wardrobe and en suite, having water views over both Nutgrove and Sandy Bay Beaches. Two garages and a large paved area for extra parking complete the property.
