contemporary home on city fringe

The home, designed by award-winning architect Maria Gigney, uses passive solar design principles. In the cold winter months, the house is bathed in sunlight throughout the day. Heating is powered largely by solar panels, keeping energy bills to a minimum. In the summer months, the house is naturally cooled through cross ventilation, making the most of the elevation of the property.

Nestled in a quiet no-through road, this family home offers privacy from neighbouring homes, and stunning panoramas of Hobart and its surroundings. Just a stone’s throw away from esteemed schools, shops, and vital conveniences, this property offers both serenity and accessibility.

The generous and bright open-plan living space, adorned with floorboards, provides sweeping views of Hobart, extending to the Eastern Shore and beyond. The kitchen features abundant storage and a spacious pantry, complemented by a large island bench offering extra seating. Adjacent to the kitchen, the dining/living area opens out to a timber deck, creating a secluded spot for entertaining guests. Boasting remarkable views from the front of the living room, with sizable sliding doors leading to the sun-drenched front balcony, ideal for savouring a beverage while soaking in the scenery.

Spread across two levels, up to four ample bedrooms provide comfortable accommodation. The master bedroom and second bedroom occupy the upper floor, while the remaining bedrooms are situated downstairs. The upstairs family bathroom features a shower over bath, an expansive vanity, and a toilet, while the downstairs laundry offers an additional shower and toilet.

The yard requires minimal upkeep, allowing natural growth and adorned with rocky terraces that lend a picturesque backdrop to the outdoor entertaining area. Parking options include a concrete driveway and on-street spaces.
