This magnificent New Town property is a beautifully preserved piece of Hobart's history, which has been transformed into a stylish and comfortable home. The thoughtful restoration has respected this grand building's history and character, whilst carefully updating it to a quality family home with all the modern luxuries.

Renovations by the current owners in recent years have preserved many of the beautiful details that make this property so exceptional. Exquisite stained glass surrounds the front door and is echoed in the intricate glass panels in the upstairs entrance, polished hardwood floors and glorious decorative cornices can be found in the living rooms. The living areas and bedrooms include the original fireplaces, all operational, and ranging from grand and ornate to simple and practical.

Accommodation is in abundance in this elegant two-story home, featuring 7 individually styled and comfortable bedrooms of various sizes, and 6 well-appointed bathrooms. The home's two levels have been divided into separate living spaces. Each level is self-contained and with its own external access, but the house can just as easily be used as a whole, to accommodate a large family.

The ground floor offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms, including an elegant and spacious master suite. The beautiful formal loungeroom boasts a large bay window and impressive fireplace and mantle; and together with the adjoining sunroom, offer a light and spacious area that make the most of the well maintained and incredibly private garden. A cosy living room with gas heating provides a lovely nook to relax and enjoy winter weather or quiet evenings. This area has additional heating from a 9kw reverse cycle air conditioner to ensure comfort all year round.

The downstairs kitchen has been recently upgraded and features quality appliances and soft close cabinetry. Terracotta splashbacks and highlights throughout the kitchen give the room a warm and welcoming feel. Access to the delightful paved entertaining area can be accessed either from the kitchen or sunroom, providing a lovely indoor-outdoor flow. The lush and sunny garden contains a variety of established trees and pretty flowers, a charming water fountain and handy shed for storage, all on the generous 834 sqm level block.

Upstairs are an additional four bedrooms, two with an ensuite, and two further family bathrooms. There is a second kitchen on this level, offering a pleasant and functional communal space, plenty of storage, a sunny aspect, and large windows that take in pleasant views of the neighbouring streetscape and surrounding hills.

The possibility of dual living has been created, with internal access between the two levels via a beautiful timber staircase, and a lockable connecting door. Each level has individual external access, separate power meters, landline and sources of hot water.

This home has endless potential to rent upstairs on a full time basis, or short term accommodation as desired by the new owners.

Located in one of Hobart's most sought-after streets, this property is just a short distance from Calvary Hospital and around the corner from the prestigious Friends school, as well as the bustling North Hobart precinct - with so many shopping, eating and entertainment options - and all the practical New Town conveniences. With off-street parking for up to three cars and a bus route that runs down Stoke Street, why not leave the car at home and make the most of alternative transport options?
