You cannot beat the location of this gorgeous Circa 1900 cottage, offering all the character and appeal you could dream of on the city fringe! Modernised by a great open plan living area at the rear, you can hide the keys to your car, and keep fit by walking everywhere around the City centre and outskirts, from here!
Many of the rooms showcase the original fireplaces/mantles, Baltic pine doors, skirting boards, high ceilings and beautiful polished floorboards reminiscent of the era and are highly practical! In the backyard, you feel surprisingly removed from suburbia by the established boundary foliage which creates a private space for you to gather on the deck and relax in the sun without feeling overlooked. This space also provides further scope for improvement and landscaping if you love gardening.
All three bedrooms have fireplaces with capped chimneys to reduce drafts, but could easily be re-instated. There are exciting possibilities for short or long term rental, use as your next home or a city base to stay in during the week. Either way, the location is unspeakably ideal, with so many popular eateries (North Hobart Restaurants, Smolt Kitchen, Paesano Restaurant), cafes, schools (Landsdowne Primary), and shops (Hill Street Grocer), close by.
The central dining room could be used as a formal lounge, again with a fireplace that forms the centre of the home. Not at all cut off from the main kitchen/living space due to a clever servery, this creates a fabulous flow through effect. The bathroom has been modernised in the past and is more than functional.
If you have young children to consider in your move, the ever-popular Train Park is less than a block away or for those who just love walking of an evening or playing ball on weekends, the Knocklofty Reserve and West Hobart Recreation Ground are a short stroll away.
A 20 minute walk to the City, a 10 minute bike ride, a 5 minute drive or you could just catch a bus there are so many options to consider, but you do have options! The beautiful garden and front verandah are the perfect frontage to this Hill Street beauty that cannot be beaten on location!
