Private City SanctuaryProperty ID 1737670On the market for the first time in 25 years, and the type of property rarely available in West Hobart, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
With driveway access off Summerhill road, and street frontage to Hillside Crescent, you will be mesmerised by this inner-city sanctuary. The original cottage was constructed in 1830, and is believed to be the gardeners cottage for Governor Arthur at the time.
Positioned on approx. 1967m2, the two storey homestead offers 4 bedrooms and multiple living and dining spaces. On the lower floor you have the lovely kitchen with Huon pine bench tops and baltic pine cabinetry, a wood heater and gorgeous exposed sandstone walls. Making your way to the next room you have the option of using the space as formal dining or a living space. On this level there are two of the bedrooms, plus another room which could be used for living or as a study.
On the upper level there are two large attic style bedrooms, with lots of light flooding through the windows as well as views to the city and water from one of the rooms. The home is kept warm by natural gas heating as well as wood fires and the combined laundry and bathroom features the stunning original sandstone feature wall. There is also under home storage which could be converted to a wine cellar.
With the large established grounds, you will be amazed by the privacy and peace in such a central location. Renovate and extend the existing cottage to create an impressive family home only minutes to the CBD, waterfront or North Hobart.
