Exuding character and charm, this elegant and spacious family home feels like a step back in time, whilst offering all the modern comforts so you can make yourself at home right away.

Built 1914 with Stucco construction, this magnificent home is brimming with original features, such as beautiful Tas Oak floor boards and high ceilings, plus delightful and modest stained glass detailing on the windows. The north facing aspect and beautiful views over Prince of Wales Bay Marina, the River Derwent, and on to Mt Direction beyond makes this unique property absolutely glorious.

A warm welcome awaits at the entry foyer, then to the left is a charming sunroom that is currently being used as a library, but could make an equally pleasant office or additional bedroom. Turn right from the foyer to find a large formal lounge room. With stunning stained timber walls and curling, an open fire place and a large bay window which lets the sunlight flood in, this uniquely styled room can easily accommodate the whole family to relax together in the generous and comfortable space.

The spacious farmhouse style kitchen includes solid timber cabinetry, with ample storage and bench space. There is plenty of room for family dining here, and access to rear yard through double glass doors. If you prefer a more formal dining experience, there is also a large dining room across the hallway, and the beautiful floorboards are highlighted perfectly in this light and sunny room.

There are currently 3 bedrooms, including a master with powder room, but the flexible floorplan could be used to its full potential here to easily create 4 to 5 bedrooms by re-purposing the additional living spaces.

The main bathroom with a shower over the bath and vanity is centrally located between two bedrooms, plus an additional shower and toilet are located adjacent to the laundry.

Situated on a flat 1685sqm block, the generous outdoor space includes a covered patio, carport, established fruit trees and ample storage in the multiple sheds. There is plenty of space for kids and pets to play freely, as well as endless potential to create a beautifully styled outdoor space or an enviable vegetable garden.

In its location right on Prince of Wales Bay, this property feels tucked away from the rest of the world, but just around the corner you will find the many amenities in Derwent park, and a short drive will take you to the extensive shopping precincts in Glenorchy and New Town. There are plenty of local schools and childcare nearby, Hobart's CBD is only a ten minute drive away, and a main bus route is close at hand.

Giblins Reserve is also just down the road, providing a lovely walking and bike track, plenty of space to run and play, picnic and BBQ facilities, plus a beautiful waterside location to enjoy family time out in the fresh air or a relaxing stroll.

This spacious property has so many beautiful features and character, plus the potential to make changes to create a perfect home for your family. Be sure to contact Mel to view this charming property, and see for yourself!
