Large Character Home with Water Views – “Almontes”
Brilliant water views across the marina to Bruny Island couple with an outlook to Mount Wellington from this large character home nestled on a sought after 4417m2 (1.09acre) allotment.
The residence was the first in Tasmania to be constructed from “Timbercrete” blocks that were poured and moulded on site. Large timber beams including an original piece of the old Snug Jetty meld with leadlight windows that were crafted by the original owner who affectionately named the property “Almontes” after an Italian restaurant that he and his partner had their first date.
The property is fully fenced with access granted via electronic gates with convenience of remote control. A large level parking area will cater for multiple vehicles and is ideal for RV, boat, trailers and visitors. The house has its own extra wide internal access garage including a residential lift to the upper level.
A flexible floor plan provides up to 4 spacious bedrooms, upper level bedrooms have a balcony access, with the master boasting a walk-in robe and water views. The study, kitchen with walk in pantry and main living area with balcony access are also located on the upper level. Spacious bathrooms are on each level and a large attic room is positioned at the top of the residence.
The massive lower level living zone has external access, good size store room, plus a plumbed in sink with hot and cold water providing the possibility of self-contained guest accommodation. The two front bedrooms and all living areas capture the views over the water. Outside a timber workshop/shed continues the charm like nature of this property with its own pond.
Located 30 minutes’ drive on sealed roads from Hobart, walk about 500 metres to the Oyster Cove Inn, a little further to the marina, Kettering Yacht Club-rooms and the transport ferry to Bruny Island. View your vessel from home, observe the weather from Mount Wellington across the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and get on the water quickly.
“Almontes” offers a lifestyle integrating with the location, land and water views providing a charm and character that is as unique and individual as you are. Call us to arrange a viewing.
