A huge historical home oozing charm and personality set on an acre of enticing gardens just ten minutes from the CBD – hard to believe – right? Well, this 1920’s brick Federation styled home is offered for sale for the first time in 100 years. The substantial residence boasts all the features we have come to expect from this period. The originality of the garden is quite breathtaking. The location is extremely private and is in the heart of the St. Johns Park Precinct. With fantastic ‘bones’ – if you love historic homes then this is the perfect project for you. A blank canvas yes – but easily liveable just as it is! Perhaps the wet areas and kitchen is where you would start in returning this faded beauty back to her former glory! Essentially there’s six bedrooms, but the layout of the rooms and the floor plan allows for versatility. All rooms are big with high ceilings a feature along with fireplaces, fretwork and some lead lighting. The large kitchen space leads to the dining room, which in turn leads to the family room which flows naturally into the living room complete with atrium – all very special rooms with their own charm and character – many capturing lots of sunlight which is a lovely surprise from a house of this era. There’s French doors that open on to the substantial veranda and a commanding hallway awaits on entering. There are a number of outbuildings including a shade house, additional toilet plus a garage and carport along with lots of storage space. A once in a ‘100 years’ opportunity – history and acreage in the heart of one of Hobart’s most desirable suburbs. Pure elegance and charm just waiting for the love it so clearly deserves. Here’s your chance to put your own personal stamp on a magical piece of Tasmanian history.
