Spacious family home with stunning river views from both levels
Located in a quiet, sought after area of Blackmans Bay, this property, with two large living areas is sure to impress. With uninterrupted views across the Derwent River to Opossum Bay and beyond, this marvellous home has much to offer.
Cleverly designed with versatile family living in mind, this 172m2 home has 3 bedrooms on the lower level, timber staircase leading to the upper level which encompasses 2 large living rooms and a kitchen.
Your morning coffee will be a daily treat from either level, as you enjoy your very own river views from the kitchen, dining or bedrooms. All bedrooms are generously sized with built in wardrobes and boast river and or garden views. For busy mornings the family bathroom has a large vanity and mirror, and there is a separate toilet. The laundry/mud room has plenty of room for extra storage, and located at the back door, so handy for when you've come home from taking the dogs to the beach, or been working in the garden.
Make your way up the open timber staircase to discover what's on offer on the upper level where light and space are the first things. At the top of the stairs, a huge second living area with massive picture windows to capture the expansive views of the river, hills, or rainbows. You can enjoy a cosy environment with the warmth of a built-in wood fireplace when the southerly winds come whistling up the river. With cleverly retained retro features of internal brick feature wall and vaulted timber ceiling, there are so many ways to enhance the fantastic natural elements in this room. This room has endless options, currently used as a formal living area, however, would be perfect for a home theatre setup or, taking advantage of the natural light, a creative studio space for the artist/photographer. Or maybe provide an extra roomy bedroom/living area for a young adult or grandparent.
The stunning timber floors upstairs give an easy living feel. The kitchen with large pantry and mesmerising river view is located between both living areas to make entertaining a breeze. The kitchen leads to the dining and second living area, with large windows for passive solar heating and a heat pump. You'll be cosy in the cool weather and seize the sea breezes in the summer. The dining area flows to a fantastic deck. A very private outdoor living space to entertain family and friends with BBQ's or Sunday brunches. Room for pots of herbs, perfect for enhancing those dishes you're going to share when you entertain. And for convenience there is also a powder room on this level.
With established trees in the fully fenced back yard, a weeping cherry tree, established roses and lavender in the front, means enhancing the garden is the best option, as much of the work as been done. Adding some spring colour, to complement the existing plants, will make your front yard bloom through the summer months. A large carport for room for four vehicles and the workshop have power, to make life easier for the tinkerer in the family.
Take advantage of the beautiful Blackmans Bay lifestyle for your family. This home is walking distance to St Aloysius Catholic College, Blackmans Bay Primary School and public transport, and just minutes to local waterfront restaurants, cafes, gorgeous beaches, headland tracks, Channel shopping centre, grocery shopping and more.
