One Owner Original
This solid and stylish 1950s, builder's own home has been constructed in hand-crafted concrete blocks that were precisely laid 100 at a time. The family lived on site in small completed sections as the owner worked tirelessly to see his dream come to fruition. Loved by that same family since new, this is the very first time anyone else has been given the opportunity to live in this quiet, elevated location so close to the foreshore, exclusive schools and the Hobart CBD.
Capturing the classic architecture of the period and combining an innovative use of glass, atriums and water features makes this unique property simply a pleasure to explore and enjoy. The flexible floorplan provides an easy layout to modernise, yet as it has been meticulously maintained over the years one could live comfortably as is and just appreciate the rarity of something so well built and so well looked after.
Downstairs holds the heart of the home with a large, welcoming lounge room, an open kitchen/dining space, three bedrooms, the main bathroom and laundry with an additional powder room. Upstairs has been designed as a bright, sunny, self-contained, guest quarters with the 5th bedroom/family room having its own ensuite and kitchenette as well as another separate bedroom. Beyond the glass-enclosed family room, step onto the rooftop deck which boasts expansive views of The Derwent.
Outside features driveway access through to the back yard which holds a garage/workshop, a Japanese garden, a glass house and a studio which could be utilised for many recreational pursuits.
Tightly held for over 60 years, I'd say this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Call now to inspect!
