magnificent mid-century modern home.
This beautifully presented home with absolutely stunning views of the Tasman Bridge and Derwent River is just superb. The home provides multiple living areas and flexible accommodation with a versatile studio and lovely established gardens, all within a very short commute to the city.
A concrete driveway leads to a single garage at front with additional OSP for a boat or camper. External stairs lead to a large balcony, where you can sit and watch the river traffic pass by. The main front entry opens to a central foyer and hall which separates living and bedroom areas. The main lounge at the front of the home is a wonderful space with authentic original features including timber skirting and architraves, ornate cornice and a wonderful brick open fireplace with timber mantle. The main lounge flows to a second lounge and dining room with lovely Tas Oak floors and a northerly aspect for sun, and the area could also be used as a rumpus room for younger children. The living areas are fitted with large double glazed windows taking full advantage of the sensational river and mountain views.
The open plan kitchen and meals area at the rear of the home is a lovely light filled space, with bi-fold windows opening to a terrific Jarrah deck, ideal for outdoor entertaining. The modern kitchen features an island bench and breakfast bar with stone benchtops, quality appliances and plenty of storage including a concealed coffee or breakfast station.
The home offers up to four large bedrooms, the main at front with built-in robes and views across the river. There is a second bedroom behind, also with robe, both serviced by the stylish family bathroom with contemporary tiles, walk-in shower, separate bath and under floor heating. The third bedroom suite at the rear of the home is a highly versatile area with sleek ensuite bathroom and WIR, plus a separate lounge or home office, or just as easily a fourth bedroom option as required. Certainly a terrific parent or teenager retreat, or guest accommodation for visiting family and friends.
The outdoor areas of the home are just as impressive as the interiors, with simply stunning garden areas including an assortment of fruit trees, exotic and native species and visited by a large number of bird species. There is also a terrific studio or ‘escape pod’, ideal as a workspace with NBN, nestled in the beautifully landscaped surrounds.
Additional features of the home include solar panels for energy efficiency, electric ducted heating, insulated walls and ceilings, Argon gas filled double glazing throughout, quality wool carpet and the home has also been rewired. The residence epitomises a mid-century modern renovation retaining many original features with a sensitive contemporary redecoration, built to take advantage of the expansive river and mountain views. A highly convenient location in close proximity to Lindisfarne Village or Rosny shopping precinct, with direct pathway access to the Clarence foreshore bike and walking track or Rose Bay Beach for kayaking. Bus stops are close by enabling a very short commute to the Hobart CBD.
