The fabulous 50's with water & mountain vistas

Built in 1956 this endearing vertical board home is quite unique and bursting with original character and quirky charm that provides a retro vibe. The elevated position enjoys lovely river views looking out across the moorings of the sheltered Geilston Bay and stunning ever-changing mountain vistas. The four-bedroom home has a flexible floor plan that would also be ideal for buyers looking to work from home, have hobby space or want accommodation with some separation.

The home has generous rooms, original King Billy pine windows throughout and beautiful Tasmanian Oak polished floorboards. The windows not only capture the wonderful outlook over the bay below but also welcomes the sun throughout the living space. The lounge room is at the front of the home and has glass doors separating it from the kitchen and dining space, which form the hub of the home. This spacious area could be configured several ways and has an open fireplace and electric heating.

The master bedroom is also at the front of the house and is another generous room with built-in robes and space for a relaxed sitting area to appreciate the water views. The second bedroom sits close by and also has built in robes and there is a family bathroom and a separate WC.

A clever extension provides a very different feel with stairs that lead to two separate bedrooms both with additional spaces. Both bedrooms have built-in robes and one has an additional enclosed area that would be an ideal study whilst the other has an open sitting area with surrounding windows that are bathed in light. Older children or people looking to strike a home that encompasses a workspace will love this flexible set up.

The back gardens will delight the green thumb with terraced areas, established veggie patches and mature plantings. There is already a home for the chooks and family pets will be equally comfortable and safe with the fully fenced yard whilst the deck provides a good spot for alfresco dining or relaxing. There is plenty of under house storage and room for a workshop.

Geilston Bay sits just over 7kms from the Hobart CBD and has easy commutes in every direction. Great schools, fantastic recreational facilities and amenities are all close at hand. Natone Hill Reserve walking tracks are right next-door and across the road cycling and walking tracks around the bay lead to playgrounds either way you go. The Lindisfarne village is a very short commute and offers great local shopping with grocers, bakery, coffee shops and medical amenities. This home will delight many purchasers looking for a property with loads of flexibility and original character.
