Occupying a sunny, elevated position to take in sweeping views of the River Derwent all the way to the Tasman Bridge, this largely original circa 1960’s home sits on a generous allotment of over 1,000sqm in a sought after pocket of Sandy Bay. The integrity of the property is maintained in the many retro features that remain, appealing to those with a love for the era and with scope to make sensitive cosmetic tweaks to contemporise the interior if desired.
Conveniently set across one level, the well-designed floorplan is functional and offers generously proportioned light filled living. The open plan galley style kitchen with large pantry and dining room leads into the sunken living room with original fireplace, ensuring ample space to entertain family and friends. Extensive glazing in this part of the home capitalises on the impressive outlook and a door opens onto the wrap around deck, offering seamless indoor/outdoor living and an area to relax outdoors and admire the ever changing view.
Three double bedrooms each with built in robes are serviced by the central bathroom, and as is typical of the home’s era, a shower room and separate WC. This offers scope to modify the floorplan to incorporate an ensuite and family bathroom (STCA). With original timber work, brick work, textured walls and tiles peppered throughout, this home is an absolute untouched gem. The grounds are low maintenance and there is a carport and off street parking available in the driveway.
Desirably located within easy reach of excellent local schools, UTAS, public transport, the new Hill Street Grocer and shops and amenities of Sandy Bay, this property presents an outstanding opportunity to acquire a solidly built home that has stood the test of time and is now seeking its next custodians to move in and enjoy the classic 60’s vibe, outstanding location and mesmerising views.
(STCA) there is scope to build another level to capitalise on those amazing views and/or to fill in a downstairs paved area for your garden retreat room which also boasts an outside fireplace.
