Located within an exclusive and tightly held pocket of the ever popular city fringe suburb of Mount Stuart this property should be on your radar. It’s close to schools, shops, public transport and is less than 10 minutes to the CBD. Lovingly cared for by the current family for the past 36 years it is now time for another family to cherish this wonderful home.
Surrounded by beautiful established gardens with a front white picket fence, this double brick home, circa 1949, retains the classic features of its era with some sympathetic upgrades. There is scope to add your own flair however, perhaps a deck off the kitchen/dining area to take in the expansive city and river views, or a rework of the existing layout. The possibilities are numerous.
Large timber windows flood the property with natural light and give this home its comfortable, warm embracing feel. The classic 1940’s style front entry leads you to the central hallway from which rooms on this level are accessed. Located at the front of the house, next to the entry, the lounge room is decorated in classic neutral tones with garden and suburban views and river glimpses. Glass doors separate this room from an adjacent sitting room which is currently set up as an office but could also be used as a third bedroom or a formal dining room.
The open plan kitchen and dining area wraps around the eastern side of the property and can be accessed from the sitting room or the hallway. This area has recently been upgraded in those classic neutral tones and comes complete with quality Westinghouse appliances and a practical island bench. This area is truly the heart of the home with plenty of space for family and friends to congregate and entertain, not to mention taking in the superb views of the city and River Derwent.
The main bedroom is set away from the main living areas and provides a private, peaceful retreat at the end of the day. A large second bedroom, just down the hall, has built in robes and a northerly aspect looking out to the rear garden area. Both bedrooms are separated by a large bathroom with shower, separate bath, toilet and timber vanity. An additional separate toilet is located adjacent.
Rumpus and sitting room areas downstairs provide more flexible living options with access internally from the lounge room or externally through the side yard. At this level there is also a large laundry/storage area and a lock up garage/workshop.
The gardens have been carefully tended to over the years with fruit trees, garden beds, mature trees, and roses on its western side wrapping around to the front of the house providing much needed shade and a peaceful leafy feel in the summer months.
Other features of this property include off street parking for 3-4 cars (including the garage), a built in linen cupboard in the hallway, good quality carpet, and solar panels on the roof. The property is heated and cooled with air conditioners in the kitchen/dining area and lounge room, and a wood heater in the sitting room.
You’ll be spoilt for choice with local shops including Hill Street Grocers and Salamanca Fresh a few minutes away by car, and the North Hobart restaurant precinct is just down the hill. For parents of primary school aged children there is an added bonus of a walkway from Paraclete Avenue to Gillon Crescent with Mount Stuart Primary School just across the road.
Mount Stuart ticks many boxes, as does this home. It is truly worth an inspection and we look forward to showing you through.
