Did you know that South Hobart was Hobart’s first suburb? Settled by merchants and professional classes in the mid 1800s South Hobart became a refuge for those seeking sanctuary from the noise and bustle of Hobart.
Carinya house has been providing that sanctuary for close to 100 years. Once you step through the front door of this beautiful 1920s red brick home you forget that the city and South Hobart shopping precinct are just outside your door.
Lovingly restored to capture the best of the original features this home enjoys stunning polished floorboards and brick detailing throughout. The light filled kitchen and dining area feature cathedral-like-proportions (with a 4 metre high ceiling) and highlight the existing chimney. Homage is paid to the history of the building with the original brick detail continuing throughout the house.
Updated amenities include new wiring and plumbing, ethanol fireplace, new kitchen counter tops and cupboards.
The picture is completed with extra large bedrooms, off street parking and the potential to create a private outdoor oasis in the backyard.
Conveniently located, including walking distance to the city, the South Hobart shopping strip (literally) around the corner and the mountain at your doorstep. This house provides a great location, a feeling of privacy not often found this close to the city and a rich history in Hobart’s original suburb.
