Level living by the water does not get much better than this dreamy landmark home on the Esplanade. With so many wonderful facilities and recreational pursuits within easy walking distance including the Motor Yacht Club of Tasmania and the Lindisfarne Rowing Club, you will be delighted by the lifestyle this address affords. Across the road from Simmons Park, a fabulous family friendly playground with barbeque facilities and shade sails, in addition to the popular waterfront walking/cycling track and exercise circuit that traverses the foreshore from Geilston Bay around to Howrah, there is no shortage of activities to keep you busy, fit and entertained.
This stunning residence features classic 1950’s architecture which meld seamlessly with the high quality renovations. Reflecting the grace and style of its era, even the beautifully landscaped gardens have been designed and manicured to perfection with English box hedging, Lilly Pilly topiary, olives and an espaliered lemon tree.
A selection of beautiful Tasmanian timbers including Tas Oak, Myrtle, Huon Pine and Jarrah, are showcased throughout the home. In particular, the high quality, galley style kitchen, has been modernised to exacting standards to be both practical and timeless in its finish and design. Caesarstone benchtops, soft closing drawers and cupboards, and elite appliances complete this striking kitchen. Adjoining the dining area and looking out into the courtyard, you can still be involved in conversations while preparing meals.
The choice of two separate living spaces is ideal for couples who sometimes have different ways of relaxing, one reading a book perhaps, while the other watches their “favourite television show”. When children come around, the family room doubles as a fabulous play room with lots of natural sunlight and french doors opening out onto the superbly landscaped, sheltered courtyard where privacy is at a premium. Alternatively, these two spaces, linked by the dining room, are perfect for entertaining on a larger scale and spending quality time together.
The north facing aspect of this classic Art Deco style home combined with large windows, attracts more light than most homes. The three bedrooms all benefit from these features and generous sizing that again is characteristic of this era. An ultra modern ensuite which looks like new in the master bedroom includes a walk in shower, vanity and toilet. The main bathroom also has a walk in shower and large Tas Oak vanity with a Caesarstone benchtop.
Outside, the extras continue with an adjoining double carport behind high gates and fencing, creating a sense of privacy and security. Built-in sprinklers in the lawn and garden beds make the amazing presentation of these stand-out gardens, easy to continue in the future. A garden shed is currently used for storage, but has exciting options for use as a cubby house or further conversion (STCA), because it has a toilet and vanity adjoining it. A wood shelter and raised vegetable garden beds are practical inclusions that add to the appeal of this beautiful property.
Less than 10 minutes drive to Hobart and Eastlands and even less to Lindisfarne shops, the convenience of this location is unique. With a local IGA supermarket a 2 minute walk around the corner, you will rarely need to use your car!
Your chance to own this landmark residence that epitomises quality architecture and exemplary presentation on the Esplanade, is now a reality! Perfect for all ages, you can walk everywhere from here, including the Marina! Life doesn’t get much better or easier!
