Alice may well have said just that had she tip-toed down the unexpectedly long hallway with its carved Federation fretwork arch at Appletree Cottage, a near century old property in one of New Town’s quiet treed streets.
“Every adventure requires a first step” says the Cheshire Cat as he is warmed by the heat pump in the hall leading to all three king-sized bedrooms. Each have marvellous high ceilings, traditional fireplaces with mantle pieces and polished Tasmanian oak floorboards.
At the hall’s end the lounge, the dining area with combustion heater and the kitchen are open-plan and look over the pretty, fully fenced rear garden and private deck which is surrounded on two sides by high walls of mixed vines and roses a perfect place for the Queen of Hearts to read the paper whilst enjoying a morning tea.
On a level block, the property is fully fenced, the gardens are a mass of colour for most of the year and there is easy on-street parking. The location is perfect with the Seymour Street playground a few houses down the street; the Hill Street Grocer and public transport a 5-minute stroll away and schools within easy walking distance. Why not leave the car at home and walk the 3km to Hobart’s CBD having a coffee at the North Hobart cafe strip on the way, where you can believe “as many as six impossible things before breakfast”?
Recently being rented at $650 p/w this beautiful home also lends itself to a solid investment with New Town trending upwards and could accelerate with Hobart City Council’s plan for a New Town retail precinct upgrade.
