Extraordinary family home views, pool, tennis court, expansive grounds


725 Sandy Bay road isn't just any property; it's a well-loved family home with a story and a treasure-trove of happy memories. Located close to Hobart's CBD, this 320sqm three-storey house set on 2978 sqm of land has been the backdrop for the lives of one family for the best part of a decade. This is an ideal home if you love sports, as it has a well-kept synthetic grass tennis court which opens out over the water, and where over the years, tennis pros have coached the owners' three children after school. The expansive grounds include a solar heated swimming pool. The elevated position of the secure pool complex offers panoramic views of the Derwent River, whilst still achieving privacy of your sanctuary. Both indoor and outdoor sceneries flow seamlessly, making it fantastically conducive to alfresco dining and pool parties! An open plan Huon Pine kitchen which bathes in all day sun, forms the heart of the home, with an informal dining room, and links beautifully to the outdoor entertaining area. The kitchen has floor to ceiling windows which maximise the uninterrupted views of the River Derwent, Eastern Shore and towards Bruny Island. The master suite on the middle level provides a wonderful amenity with its privacy and good-sized en-suite. The lower level newly renovated self-contained flat could easily be a teenage retreat, accommodate visiting relatives or create an income of $450 per week through long term rental.

There are two double carports, and parking for additional cars, small boat or trailer. There is a large workshop and shed for storing gardening tools and sports equipment. As one of the first homes built in the area, 725 Sandy Bay Road is most certainly not a newbuild with up-to-the-minute bathrooms (refer to photos); it is, however, an established double bricked family home with a mature landscaped garden ready to be lived in. Potential buyers wanting the state-of-the-art finish have the option of adding their very own special touch and putting a stamp on this notable property.


The owners have enjoyed years of energetic bush walks straight out the garden gate up to Mount Nelson Signal station for a morning cappuccino or even lunch. It's an incredible privilege to have Bicentennial Park Reserve backing on your property and still be minutes away from Tasmania's capital city and top schools. Walk out of the property, cross the road and follow the promenade along the water towards Long Beach Reserve. You'll find it has cafs, a beauty lounge, hair salon, restaurant, butcher, chemist, post office, woodfired pizzeria, large lighthouse playground, playing fields, a sailing club, bowls club and lush lawns for the Twilight Market. It's a treasured property that has allowed independence for all members of the family and guests, thanks to its regular buses from the bottom of the driveway and ideal location. Just 25 minutes to the airport.


There are various decks and balconies around the property where you can have a glass of champagne and toast the winner of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race as you watch it sail directly past the property towards the finish line. Welcome to your very own castle!
