78 Swanston Street, NEW TOWN TAS 7008


Seamless blend of history with contemporary living sets a new standard


Unsurpassed in quality, this exclusive home sets a new standard in seamlessly integrating the old and the new. With a meticulously designed extension perfectly complementing the original historic home, this property is certain to impress. Now a showcase of superior finishes and exquisite style, 78 Swanston Street was built in the mid 1800’s for Captain Charles Swanston. Welcome to a home of historical significance, offering architectural perfection within a desirable locale. Let’s step inside.

Through the cottage garden with feature iron fencing and beautiful magnolia tree, the hallway, with original timber floorboards, entices you to look further. Four generously sized bedrooms open off the hallway, with two boasting original 1800’s coal-burning fireplaces. Reminding us of another time are original Georgian features like the servant’s bell at the front door, and a boot scraper from a time when the streets of New Town were dirt.

An impressive space, the new extension is both visually stimulating and functionally appealing. Combining hardwood and polished concrete floors, premium fixtures and a welcoming ambience, you’ll feel right at home here. Exposed stonework is a stunning feature, where the old meets the new. Built with bare hands all those years ago, truly reflecting the historical significance of our past.

A sleek culinary oasis awaits the chef in your family. Offering a seamless connection to dining space, sitting room and the outdoors, the kitchen will no doubt be the social hub of your new home. Boasting feature timber accents, stainless steel splashbacks and bench tops, island bench with Asko gas hob, Qasair commercial rangehood, slide out pantry and much more, no expense has been spared here.

Spacious dining for all is also on offer. Entertain with ease, as family and friends join you to create lasting memories over lazy Sunday brunches and special occasions. The expansive family lounge will create movie nights to be anticipated with delight. Or find some quiet time, away from the rest of the house, sipping on a glass of wine and enjoying the outlook through the feature corner window to the garden beyond.

Luxurious and cleverly designed, the combined bathroom laundry is finished with quality tiles and includes a walk-in shower.

Needing more space? The garage/workshop would be an ideal rumpus area. Working from home? With four bedrooms and an office flexibility is on offer here to suit your needs.
