Firthside gem full of surprises
This neat as a pin original cottage has been extensively renovated over the last few years including reconfiguring the layout, rewiring, re-plumbing, insulating the walls, double glazed french and rear doors, plaster board and carpets new galley style kitchen, enlargement of the front deck and re-cladding the exterior with hardwood vertical boards. The bathroom/laundry combo incorporates a vanity, large shower bay with safety handrails and seat, making it safe for those with mobility issues, the toilet is separate.
Stepping down from the living area into the old kitchen space you enter the project area where it is perfect for the new owner to develop as a second bedroom/ensuite (STCA) This section has been stripped out ready with the plumbing and electrics still in place. With the floor and roof raised to maintain level access, this room would have water views. As it is there are views on the opposite side to Mt Wellington from both the front and rear grounds. Another bonus has been the addition of the 24 panel solar array on the roof. The block is large enough for strata-title development (STCA) with many units being built in the Firthside enclave; yet the no-through road ensures the area remains a quiet haven from highway traffic.
This little gem hasn't finished surprising yet. As well as the spacious deck of the home, the outside lawn area boasts a large galvanised shed to the rear complete with lift-up garage door and much of the ample floor space timbered. Add to this a spacious separate two-room studio complete with carpet, wiring, drawing tables and two access doors, the options for this property are endless.
There is both an on and off ramp access direct to the Southern Outlet making it just a 10-minute trip to Hobart; or via Browns Rd a 10-minute trip to Margate. A regular bus service to Hobart and the Huon stops at the Groningen Rd/Browns Rd highway overpass (800m away), making it an ideal commuter for travel-wise Hobart workers or university students.
This original Dutch immigrant worker's cottage has been configured for comfort and maximum space; it retains its privacy from the road with shrubs, a bay tree and six fruit trees (including apricot, pear, cumquat and quince); and can come furnished together with some renovation accessories by negotiation.
