23 Cilwen Road,
Idyllic property 15 minutes from Hobart CBD23 Cilwen Road is a beautifully presented property on 1.147 hectares (2.8 acres) of parkland, with orchard and established gardens surrounding the house. Located on a private, internal block with remote controlled security gates, the property is an oasis a mere 15 minutes from the centre of Hobart.
Completed in 2003, the main section of the house has a welcoming atmosphere courtesy of the neutral colours and the warm glow of the Tasmanian Oak timber floors that extend throughout the living areas. The three bedrooms and office are carpeted in a complementing colour, while the bathrooms and laundry are tiled. The kitchen has quality cabinetry and appliances plus a walk-in pantry, and the large dining/living area has a flexible layout where a spacious alcove, with its northerly aspect and floor to ceiling windows is aptly named the sunroom. Sliding doors near the kitchen open onto a paved patio with ornamental grape vines and wisteria offering shade during the summer months and evoking a Mediterranean mood. In fact most rooms on this level have full-length windows creating an indoor/outdoor atmosphere, allowing maximum appreciation of the elegant surrounding gardens. A hallway leads to a second wing of the home which can be securely separated from the main house. This section, built in 2014, comprises a double carport and playroom on the ground level, whilst upstairs are two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchenette and a spacious living/dining room: an ideal area for teenagers, extended family, guests or as rental accommodation (STCA).
Over the years, the owners have created a haven in this idyllic setting: paved paths lead through the established gardens of roses, camellias, azaleas, rhododendrons, and magnolias surrounding the house to the pergola-covered spa and secure swimming pool, and on to the enclosed orchard containing apples, cherries, apricots, pears, raspberries and other berry fruits, and to the adjacent vegetable garden. A barn is nearby for storage of gardening equipment and for servicing the pool. This whole area is surrounded by a rabbit-proof fence and has an automatic watering system supplied partly by the propertys parkland dam. These are but some of the many attractions of this much admired property.
