This much loved family home has been in the same family since constructed in 1939.

Now offered for sale this original condition double brick gem can be lovingly restored by its new owner.

Perfectly positioned in a quiet no thru street off Clare Street in an elevated position. This home offers close walking proximity to the North Hobart restaurant strip and is close to schools, shops and public transport and its only 5 minutes by car to the CBD.

Built in an era of formality and style, this northerly facing home offers a flexible floor plan with rooms that could be used for a variety of purposes. Period features include glass panels above several of the internal doors, picture rails and wide skirting boards and dark stained timber panelling. The kitchen, lounge and dining rooms all feature open fireplaces.

Upon entry to the wide hallway the carpet tiles hide the Tasmanian Oak hardwood floors. The sitting room with door into the lounge is located at the front of the house. This room has previously been utilized as a 3rd bedroom.

The formal dining room is located opposite the kitchen, with built in glass fronted cupboards, an open fireplace and large windows. This room can easily be imagined with a coat of paint, polished boards, chandelier and a large antique dining table accommodating a crowd.

There are up to three bedrooms. The bedroom at the rear of the property had an addition around 1954, utilized as a study or parents retreat off the bedroom with external access. The largest of the bedrooms located at the front of the property enjoys morning sun and stunning wide windows frames.

The kitchen is original and is neat and can accommodate a meals area. Off the kitchen is the enclosed porch area with lovely timber panelling on the ceiling. A lovely sunny spot for an afternoon tea break.

The rear yard is a delight, with two garden sheds and a cottage style garden. There is a long single garage under the house with great storage space. There is also a carport in front of the garage.

With some investment in a new kitchen, bathroom and electrical work, along with cosmetic touches this home could be restored to the sparking, new condition that it was when the current family moved in on 4th September 1939.

If you have been searching for a solid home in a great locale to renovate then call Mel for your inspection of this much loved home.
