Hidden Gem in the heart of the CBD
In the heart of Devonport’s CBD, you will find this hidden gem, full of character and charm. Built in 1931, this solid brick home has been well maintained and has had two major upgrades. It is both spacious and private.
The moment you enter the gate of the property, you will instantly feel calm and welcomed. The hustle and bustle of the city dissolves into the background. As you walk through the front door, the captivating hallway sets the tone for the entire home. The original TAS Oak archway frames the view through the home and out to the gardens and the Spirit of Tasmania beyond.
The three bedrooms are spaciously proportioned, with high ceilings and two with the original fireplaces and surrounds. The master bedroom includes walk in robe, an elegant ensuite and a bay window which captures the afternoon sun. Stained glass windows, reflective of the time the house was constructed, are scattered throughout the home.
The kitchen is often the heart of the home and in this home, it is the hero. The large celery top island bench, repurposed copper light fittings, a copper sink, lead light skylights, induction cooktop, all contribute to create a kitchen with soul. The kitchen flows into a north facing sunroom. In the cooler months sun floods in from early morning to late afternoon and in the summer months, strategically placed deciduous trees in full leaf provide shade in the hotter times of the day.
The sunroom wraps around into the dining room and onto an open and inviting living room. Large windows overlook the private garden containing large deciduous trees (including a magnificent magnolia that is quite possibly as old as the home herself), city and river views. In winter an inviting gas wood fire creates cosiness and warmth. A deck is also accessible from this area, perfect for barbecue or a glass of wine, while admiring the garden and city lights.
The garden has a wide variety of trees, plants and sitting areas. It has two raised vegetable garden beds and an area containing herbs. Ideal for sitting back reading a book in privacy, watching the birds playing in the branches of the trees or simply, enjoying the serenity. Sitting on 976m2 of land on two titles, and offering privacy with high hedging and high fencing.
Restaurants, cafes, shops, cinema, civic centre, library, schools and supermarkets are all within easy walking distance. The coastal walking track, that meanders along the Mersey River and beyond, is just down the street.
This could be your very own secret haven in the heart of the city.
