Offers Over $685,000

Teeming with history and gorgeous period features, plus a peaceful outlook over New Town Bay Golf Club to the Derwent River, this property's rich past has been respectfully blended with modern conveniences to offer a unique and charming family home.

Built circa 1900, this delightful weatherboard home has fantastic street appeal - with an enchanting front garden featuring a fountain and pretty cottage garden behind a neat picket fence. A sunny verandah and front door with stained-glass offer a warm welcome at the entrance to the property.

Indoors, you will find a perfect mix of pretty and practical, with generous living spaces and character features such as Baltic pine painted ceilings, original fireplaces and Tas oak floorboards. Updated appliances, electric panel heaters and a reverse cycle air conditioner will keep you comfortable throughout the year.

The lounge room is an exceptional space for the whole family to relax in comfort, and the brick chimney with timber mantel as the room's centrepiece is astounding. Step through to the country-style kitchen and dining room, which provides ample bench space, a dishwasher, and French doors with a pleasant outlook and access to the rear yard. There is also a laundry located off the kitchen.

The three bedrooms are all generously sized, with built-in storage and decorative open fireplaces; and the bathroom has a heated towel rail, spacious shower and a luxurious claw foot bath.

Located in the rear yard is the 'Loft House'; which contains a compact kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, plus storage. It has been previously used as a teenager's retreat, but would also make a fantastic artist's studio, home office or guest accommodation.

Set on a 640 sqm block, this property has still more to offer outdoors. In the fenced rear yard, you will find veggie boxes, a kid's cubby house, two cat runs, mulberry trees, and an apple tree that is over 100 years old!

Start practicing your golf swing, as this location offers ideal recreational opportunities, with New Town Bay Golf Club directly across the road. Nearby Cornelian Bay offers an abundance of facilities and family fun - with play equipment, a BBQ and picnic area, walking tracks, plus an off-lead dog area - as well as a convenient link to the intercity cycleway, with only a 5km ride into the city from there.

Lutana's proximity to central Hobart means an enviable 10-minute commute, and services in Moonah and Glenorchy are even closer. You will have plenty of choices of schools and childcare in the area, and a bus service runs right along Ashbolt Cres. Challenge yourself to find a more convenient location outside the CBD!

With character and history in abundance, appealing grounds and plenty of room for the whole family, this could be your ideal family home. Mel will be pleased to show you around this charming property - be sure to make contact at your earliest convenience to arrange a viewing and avoid disappointment.
