The 'Patrolman's Cottage' is a charming seaside abode in Taroona's exclusive and tightly held Hinsby Road. Built in 1933, this weatherboard property with imitation tile roof is bursting with character and potential. Whether you choose to renovate this little gem and restore its former lustre with some additional modern touches, or you are planning a new build in the perfect location, this is a must see.

The cottage has so much to offer as it stands, with tranquil water views, an office or additional living space next to the kitchen, Tas Oak floorboards that could polish up beautifully and add a timeless style and character to the property. Whatever your dream home may be, this could be the perfect opportunity to make it happen, all in a peaceful and relaxed beachside setting.

The living spaces are quaint and cozy and reflect the history and character of the cottage. Wake up listening to the waves on the shore from either of the two bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes.

Situated on a 250sqm block, the compact rear yard contains pretty flowers, plum trees and a covered patio that provides the perfect spot to relax on summer evenings after a long day at the beach, or entertain with friends in the pleasant and sheltered outdoor space. There is a single lock up garage and off street parking for a second vehicle. Storage under the house will provide accommodation for the kayaks, stand up paddle boards and bikes. Essential items for the lifestyle that awaits a lucky purchaser.

Just a couple of steps will take you to the foreshore of popular Hinsby Beach, via a leafy and sheltered access track directly across the road from the property. Take a dip in the waves, a peaceful stroll on the sand, or a brisk walk on the Alum Cliffs track, which runs from Hinsby Beach through to Kingston Beach along the beautiful coastline.

Become part of a great local community in the heart of Taroona, with local tennis and bowls clubs, playgroup, a community garden and cafés all nearby. The highly sought after Taroona Primary and High School is located just up the road, and public transport is also conveniently close. Hobart's CBD is just 15 minutes' drive away, with great alternative locations for shopping in Kingston and Sandy Bay. There are also excellent amenities for those who prefer to travel by bike. With all this on your doorstep, it's no surprise that Taroona is such an incredibly popular area.
