Water views on Sandy Bay’s "Golden Mile"What an opportunity to purchase a waterfront property in such a sought after location! Situated on Sandy Bays Golden Mile, the house is of historic significance serving as the coach-house for the Mawhera Estate in the 1880s. While retaining some integrity of the original building, renovations in the 1960s by the current owners were so stylishly completed that the house was featured on the cover of a 1968 copy of Australian Home Beautiful.
On the lower level, with superb views of the Derwent River, the beautifully proportioned lounge-room adjoins the dining-room which opens onto a north-facing patio. There is also access from the kitchen to the patio making it an ideal area for entertaining and enjoying the ever-changing activities on the harbour.
On the upper level are two large bedrooms and a sitting room, each with windows designed to capitalize on the water views. A large bathroom completes the accommodation on this level.
From Sandy Bay Road, secure wrought iron gates provide access to a garage and additional off-street parking; whilst on the river side, paths and steps meander through easily maintained established gardens to two boathouses on the waters edge and a semi-private beach.
There is enormous potential for a new owner to bring this beautiful property with such an interesting history into the 21st Century.
