A statement in art and design, 9 Lower Jordan Hill Road has undergone a detailed and highly personalised renovation led by Taylor and Hinds Architects.
Presented with the Edith Emery Award at the 2020 Tasmanian Architecture Awards, the refurbishment comprises a new kitchen and bathroom, library and open plan living space.
Each detail of the design has been carefully considered and the original Federation cottage has been transformed. The use of Tasmanian Oak, the soaring ceilings and oversized windows that allow in the northern sunlight, create a light filled peaceful space.
The timber-lined library with floor to ceiling shelving and a vaulted ceiling, is a masterpiece in architectural design. It provides a space of comfort and seclusion.
A circular brass shower screen in the new bathroom separates the laundry from the bathroom.
Three well-proportioned bedrooms at the front of the house provide a calm and comfortable area for sleeping. There are views of the river from the bedrooms facing the street.
Purpose-built shutters modulate light, breezes and privacy at the rear of the exterior and the sun drenched, north-facing sandstone terrace provides a pleasant outdoor space, requiring minimal maintenance.
A single lock-up garage at street frontage provides secure off-street parking.
The location delivers an enviable lifestyle on the doorstep of North Hobart’s food and art culture, with easy access to the State Cinema, local art galleries, cafes, wine bars and restaurants.
Recently featured in Green magazine, this unique home in one of Hobart’s premiere suburbs is truly worthy of your inspection.
