Nestled amongst the genteel homes and leafy streets of Mt Stuart, this magnificent character property offers privacy and proximity, luxurious living spaces and a lush cottage garden - plus a stylish and separate 1-bedroom unit.

Rumoured to be designed by renowned architect Bernard Ridley Walker, whose work includes the Hobart Cenotaph and The Friends' School; this grand home was built in 1940 and retains many of its original features - Tas Oak flooring, Bakelite door furniture, timber framed sash windows and glass bricks at the front entrance - and is a rare opportunity to own part of Hobart's rich architectural history.

The main dwelling is located across the property's upper level and boasts an expansive lounge and formal dining area with a glorious art deco fireplace and mirror, and large windows make the most of the home's northerly aspect and glorious views over the rooftops towards the River Derwent.

The updated and functional kitchen includes plenty of storage, a butler's pantry, external access to a shady undercover area, as well as a pleasant dining nook - a perfect spot to enjoy the sun and view of the gardens over an informal meal.

Three generously sized bedrooms with large windows and plenty of natural light offer a peaceful retreat away for the main living area. There is also a modern family bathroom and separate WC.

Downstairs is a self-contained 1-bedroom unit with a spacious kitchen and dining area, sunny living room that provides a pleasant outlook over the garden, plus a double bedroom with built-in wardrobe and ensuite. The unit has separate external entry, a covered porch and private deck. Currently tenanted until February 2022 at $400 per week; this is a great income opportunity but could also be utilised by family members who need their own space into the future.

Set on 759sqm of land filled with abundant gardens that include berry bushes, fruit trees, roses and cottage flowers; recent improvements include a new roof, insulation and updated wiring. There is also a large storage room downstairs which houses the laundry and doubles as great wine cellar. The property also comes with multiple parking options and is conveniently designed so each residence has its own driveway.

Spend just 5 minutes in the car or enjoy a pleasant 10-minute bike ride to Hobart's CBD, walk to Calvary hospital, quaint Augusta Rd shopping village or a little further to ever-popular North Hobart with shopping, dining and entertainment aplenty. There are a number of well-regarded schools and childcare options in the area, including the prestigious Friends' School, and there is public transport within metres of the door.

This exquisite property offers space, privacy and proximity, along with a lovingly preserved history. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to own one of Hobart's grand homes - be sure to contact Warwick at your earliest convenience to arrange a viewing.
