Big, Bold and Beautiful
House - NORTH HOBART TAS
Extraordinary on many different levels, this lovingly maintained home has been updated, whilst maintaining its original grandeur. Steeped in history, “Linda” has previously been used commercially for offices and for private use. Every room throughout this magnificent Victorian property is distinctive, from the colour palettes to the intricate ceiling roses and working antique fireplaces, the clawfoot tub in the upstairs bathroom and the grand balustrade which can be seen as soon as you enter the home.
The main residence features five expansive bedrooms, two bathrooms and a formal dining room plus a sun-drenched parlor with bay windows. Two of the bedrooms are located on the ground level, and three on the first floor. The master bedroom flows through to a split-level living area, a perfect retreat which can be closed to the rest of the home.
A sunroom with dual access to the hallway and fifth bedroom captures the North sun and views may be enjoyed towards Hobart City whilst enjoying the ambience.
Updated and keeping within the vibe of the home, the kitchen has an abundance of storage with solid timber, soft closing doors and a large upright Belling three in one electric oven with five burner gas cooktop which is connected to natural gas. Granite bench tops and an integrated dishwasher complete the very functionable kitchen.
Exposed sandstone brick work has been framed with original timber and creates an eye-catching feature in the dining room which exudes a warm atmosphere completed with the off-peak heat bank which assists in keeping the home cosy.
The downstairs bathroom is a showcase on its own with the feature tiling and stone basin sinks, another compliment towards the overall unity this lovely home offers whilst the upstairs bathroom is white, bright, and reminiscent of a Hampton style.
Period timber polished floorboards are visually stunning and complimented with a plush woollen carpet in the master bedroom plus three other bedrooms.
Set on a large block, there is plenty of potential and additionally, the property has two separate residences which have previously generated income. There is a two-bedroom unit with a galley style kitchen, generous living room, bathroom and laundry. Featuring polished floorboards throughout apart from the carpeted living room, the unit is autonomous with its own connection to natural gas and electricity. The other unit has been used as an Airbnb and offers open plan living, separate kitchen and bathroom with a side entry ensuring privacy is maintained in the main home.
Onsite parking with a large garage and driveway is an additional incitement and a storage room within would make an ideal cellar or a place to store the wood for the fireplaces.
Located close to the restaurants and cafes of North Hobart and within walking distance to Hobarts CBD, this simply irresistible classic is ready to continue with a new chapter. A once in a lifetime opportunity!
