Dare to dream in sought after New Town
Step inside this post war beauty and feel that you've found your own place in history. New Town is one of the oldest suburbs in Australia and this property surrounded by other original New Town properties, offers the lifestyle you've been looking for.
Built in 1952 this roomy 156sqm double brick family home, with stunning views to Mount Wellington, will inspire you to combine existing classic period features with your own contemporary style, creating the perfect balance between nostalgia and practicality.
The welcoming entry immediately indicates the original features and design retained here.
Open plan design was in its infancy during the post war years, and this property is a classic example. For homeowners the post war period meant a time of hope and promise, building light filled family homes with connected living spaces.
The north facing living room, boasting large windows for passive solar heating, stunning timber floors, timber architraves and window frames. The original fireplace now houses a natural gas heater and there is also a heat pump. Perfect for those chilly nights this winter. Original timber pelmets throughout this property are a period feature, and energy efficient, reducing heat loss above the windows.
The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen, and interconnects with both the living room and a delightful sunroom area, with original timber framed glass doors. Natural light and warmth fill these areas, drawing your family to the hub of the home. The kitchen retains the original design, plenty of cupboards and a large picture window, the best excuse for a little daydreaming at the sink.
Wander down the hallway and you'll find three large bedrooms, all with built-in cupboards. A large family bathroom, with original pedestal basin, separate bath and shower is just waiting for innovation and transformation.
So many options with the large laundry/utility room. Maybe a European-style laundry in a cupboard, leaving the remainder of the space for a study area or sewing room. Better still, a perfect creative space to channel your inner writer, painter or poet, gaining inspiration from the spectacular view of Mount Wellington.
A storeroom at the end of the hallway could also be reimagined into a different use, maybe an ensuite off the adjacent bedroom. So much potential with this property, you're spoilt for choice here!
And there's more
For the tinkerer or woodturner in your family, a roomy workshop is adjacent to the tandem lockup garage, with automatic roller door. An additional storage area is at the rear of the garage area. The vehicle side access means you can lock away the trailer or boat and there is extra off street parking for two vehicles.
An added bonus is the separate dwelling at the rear of this property. Consisting of two rooms and a toilet this 25sqm area will have you thinking of all the potential uses for your family's needs. A home office perhaps, or a gym setup, maybe a craft space, the options are endless. The backyard is full fenced, with room for a vege garden and a couple of fruit trees. Remember, the best garden planning is done in the winter months, ready for spring and summer flowering and harvesting.
Many highly-respected schools are within walking distance, and all the New Town amenities are close by. Located less than 4km to Hobart's CBD and close to the park and Boathouse Restaurant and Bar at Cornelian Bay, this property offers a marvellous inner city lifestyle.
