Fantastic Opportunity in the Heart of Cosmopolitan North Hobart
House - NORTH HOBART TAS
Swan Street is arguably one of North Hobart’s best inner city locations – a quiet and idiosyncratic no through road with the State Cinema, the Winston and all of the fabulousness of the Elizabeth Street restaurant and commercial precinct literally at the end of the street. This impressive two storey 7 bedroom double brick home is inner city Hobart lifestyle at it’s most interesting. Within the walls of this 100 year old home it’s up to you how you make use of the plethora of generous space.
Think traditionally – there is more than enough room for a large family – you could even bring the grandparents or an au pair.
Or think outside the box – 2 couples could live very comfortably by appropriating an entire floor – with 3 bedrooms down and 4 bedrooms up – each level has it’s own bathroom and access to verandas. Superfluous bedrooms could be reimagined in myriad configurations – as living/dining/home office/hobby or guest rooms as desired. The centralised kitchen is adjacent to a living room and combined they would make a practical communal area. In addition there are two separate entry ways from the front of the house.
Or think economically and set up the ultimate share house. There’s plenty of room for all your friends with 7 double bedrooms as private spaces – most could also accommodate wardrobes, desks and sofas. Set up a designated communal, more public space centred around the kitchen and living room and utilise the verandas for al fresco living and entertaining.
The size of this home offers real value for money – you do the sums.
With a neutral decor – warm polished Tas Oak floorboards, new charcoal carpet and fresh crisp paint – the inside provides a blank palette to work with. The stylish eat in kitchen with quality Miele appliances (fridge/freezer, dishwasher, wall oven, microwave, electric cooktop and range hood) and expansive storage and practical bench space opens through to an adjacent grand living room. Modern, white bathrooms – one with spa bath and both with showers – are located on each floor. Elegant period details – decorative open fireplaces, high ceilings, a sweeping timber staircase, French doors, decorative plasterwork and stained glass all enhance the atmosphere of light and space. Panel heaters are wired throughout to keep the home warm. In addition there is a gallery style art hanging system in most of the ground floor rooms.
Outside, each level has wide wrap around verandas with beautiful elevated views over rooftops to the river.
Off street parking is at a premium and very hard to come by in the inner city yet this property is spoilt with space for 4 cars although invariably you won’t need them as public transport, designated bike lanes are around the corner and the city is an easy 20 minute walk away.
