Stunning Brinktop - established garden - prime position

2 Crelin Street, BATTERY POINT, TAS

A fine stone house in Rustic Gothic style, Brinktop is a sanctuary in an urban setting. The property encapsulates the dream of the well located and picturesque home with superb established gardens, wide frontage and auto entry to double off-street parking. On the market for the first time in many years, the rich history is noted in several history books on display in the home. The house is a rare combination of New Zealand Greystone with sandstone quoins/cornerstones and gable and hipped sections roof. The roof has been replaced, NBN and mains gas connected for hot water and heating. Original architectural features include large twelve paned windows, several sets of French doors, and fire surrounds. The generous high-set windows throw light into the elegant interior and provide views to the leafy garden. Living areas transition from the informal light-filled conservatory to casual family area with high timber mantel enclosing a mains gas heater. Then to the formal living area where two fireplaces grace the room and a door opens to the verandah, patio and garden. On the ground level the accommodation consists of the conservatory, family room, formal living and dining room, study, kitchen, powder room and bathroom. The three bedrooms, a bathroom and linen closet are upstairs. There is a high wall to Crelin Street and auto-entry to secure off-street parking for two cars. The exceptional location is just 10/15 minutes walk from Salamanca Place and the waterfront precinct, Hobart City and Sandy Bay shopping area. Built by Captain Henry Williams, Master Mariner (a Welshman) and his wife Elizabeth as their family home. They owned two sailing vessels and traded from Hobart to America and New Zealand. According to his descendants, Captain Williams brought the New Zealand Greystone to build their house. They were married in April 1856 at St Georges Church in Battery Point and had eight children. Brinktop features in Frank Bolt's book 'Old Hobart Town today' and 'A Quarry Speaks: A History of Hobart's Salamanca Quarry' by Anthony Hope.
The sale of this property marks a rare opportunity to invest in a distinctive heritage home in desirable Battery Point.
