Architect designed and superbly built, this great property in a beachside location sets a magnificent stage for the next exciting chapter in you and your family's lives.
This substantial home is a mere 100m or so from the golden sands of Bellerive Beach, and occupies a large allotment of some 1,037m2 with thoughtfully placed structures and improvements to maximise family effectiveness and enjoyment.
The residence is set in a beautifully established and landscaped garden, replete with sensible and delightful ornamental and edible plantings, shrubs, and green open spaces where all day northerly sunlight bathes the occupants in warmth and natural privacy.
Here, the old sandstone blocks and pavers have been tastefully recycled from the footings of the previous 1930's bungalow that once occupied this address, exuding character, charm, and substance.
Other timeless relics were respectfully salvaged from the old house and sympathetically used in the modern building. These include handmade stained glass windows, original solid doors, and weatherboards to make the separate, fully lined workshop/studio behind the house. This structure is a fabulous, light filled and spacious area with limitless potential for craftspeople and artisans, or simply a place to store equipment, toys, or even teenagers!
Inside, the home beckons with a stately foyer entrance leading to two main wings, and stairs to the upper storey. To one side is a large thoughtfully designed laundry to make shorter work of the domestic chores, and third bathroom that can be accessed from outside, ideal for returning wet and salty beachgoers before they walk sand through the house.
The western wing comprises formal dining, great for entertaining guests, and a second living room which is a perfect place for large families to spread out and find their own quiet places.
Upstairs are the four bedrooms, master with walk in wardrobe and large ensuite, family bathroom, and a light-filled office with gorgeous views. In fact all bedrooms have water views except one which instead overlooks Mount Wellington and Bellerive Oval. Also on this level is a covered balcony which invites to the senses fresh sea air, and glorious beach, river and mountain vistas.
The northern wing expands to a wonderfully relaxing and less formal, open-plan hub encompassing kitchen, informal dining, lounge room, and an atrium-style family room which facilitates seamless transition from indoor and outdoor environments. These spaces are supremely comfortable - cool and breezy on a hot summers day, or warm and cocooning in the depths of winter - and are adorned with furniture grade Jarrah flooring, stone bench tops, and recently upgraded AEG appliances including two ovens and a five hob gas cooktop.
Ample covered off street parking and abundant storage completes the faultless package.
With the beauty and vibrancy of Bellerive all around, gourmet eating and shopping, plus the convenience of nearby schools, an international sporting arena, yacht club, boardwalk, and marina, popular beach, and easy proximity to the CBD, this has to be Greater Hobart's favourite playground offering an unparalleled lifestyle to be envied.
Since it was first surveyed and fenced, this time-honoured address has been home to only two families who have forged decades of cherished family moments and memories here. Now it's boundaries are open again to receive the next custodians, representing a once in a generation opportunity not to be missed.
