Sweeping views of harbour and mountain from Tasmania's most prestigious residential precinct

10 Bath Street, BATTERY POINT, TAS

This is a home that offers elegance, charm and style. It features a remarkably versatile floorplan, ideally suited to accommodate an extended family or to generate outstanding rental returns.

From the understated streetscape appeal of its Victorian-era heritage faade, this unique Battery Point home opens out inside into an expansive, light-filled and welcoming series of spaces, all entirely and only quite recently crafted from the fine old bones of the original 1900 building.

Almost everything beyond the attractive half-glazed veranda on the street frontage was constructed by artisan builders in a full-scale restoration and renovation, completed in 2008.

The ground floor entrance hall, with original Tasmanian oak hardwood flooring, passes a cosy sitting room (potentially another bedroom) with cast-iron wood fire on one side and the guest bedroom with large ensuite bathroom on the other, then leads through to the soaring windows that frame a splendid view of marinas on the River Derwent, Short Beach on Marieville Esplanade, the lower harbour, Mt Nelson and kunanyi/Mt Wellington.

The impressive living/dining area is flooded with light from the double-glazed windows. To the left is the bright, contemporary kitchen, with top-quality European appliances and cedar-framed windows overlooking the water. Adjacent is the laundry and access to the guest ensuite, which has floor heating.

Large glazed doors open from the living space to a deck with pillars of repurposed Queensland red gum, the same warm-coloured timber that is featured in the exposed beams of the vaulted ceiling and the staircase to the upper attic level.

This lofty and secluded spot is a quiet place for reading or writing, with natural light from below as well as through a dormer window above.

Then the surprises really begin.

Back on the landing below, another flight of red gum stairs descends to the lower-ground floor level of the home. At the foot of the stairs on the left is the location of the home's master suite, which has a large bedroom, walk-in robe and full-size bathroom with floor heating and modern free-standing bath. The suite has lovely views to the mountain and there is a deck and steps that lead down into the garden.

But wait, there's more!

Also on this level, to the right of the stairs, is a luxurious and totally self-contained one-bedroom apartment, also with fine mountain views. The apartment has a spacious kitchen/dining/living area, laundry and another bathroom adjoining the bedroom.

The apartment has its own entrance from the side of the house and the access by the stairs from the middle level can be closed off for complete privacy. This part of the home is on a separate electrical circuit. The gas hob in the beautifully-appointed kitchen and the apartment's hot water service are also separate from the services in the level above.

As well as the efficient cast iron wood fire on the ground floor, two heat pumps and a number of panel heaters take care of heating and cooling on all levels of the house, which is fully insulated in walls and ceilings. There is also effective acoustic insulation between the levels.

There are ample storage areas, with secret spaces on either side of the attic loft and more hidden storage across the full width of the house in the apartment. A good-sized lock-up space under the house is accessed from the side path.

Neatly-tended gardens on both sides of the home feature an interesting collection of native and exotic plantings.

Flexibility is the keynote of this home, allowing the owner to live on the ground floor section, using the master suite below and let the self-contained apartment as a lucrative rental property; or live below and let the ground floor section; perhaps to use the lower ground master suite for Airbnb; or for a larger family, to occupy the whole range of spaces. All three areas have their own separate entrances and can be private from each other.

Homes of this character, quality and versatility are rare anywhere - to secure one in the much sought-after Battery Point precinct, within walking distance of the city, Sandy Bay shops and Salamanca Place, will be a very special privilege for the new owner of 10 Bath Street.
