A SANCTUARY in the truest sense, this significant Sandy Bay property offers a superb lifestyle, complete privacy and plenty of land.
Families big and small, prepare to be wowed.
From the pool to the tennis court to the elevated position and the wide, gorgeous views that it affords, this home puts enjoyment at the forefront.
Harcourts Hobart property consultants Colin Miller and Ben Vance said they were thrilled to bring such a fantastic home to market.
Ben said the property was set up beautifully for families who like to play together, but also enjoy their own personal space.
“Unlike some private tennis courts, this one is in tip-top shape,” he said.
“It has hosted hours and hours of fun times for the owners playing basketball, cricket, soccer and, of course, tennis.”
Colin said the impeccable water views were a huge drawcard.
“The views are ever-present and seem to follow you like a loyal pet as you move around the house,” he said.
“And I don’t know of many other places this close to the CBD that have direct over-the-back-fence access to a leafy, pristine bushwalk.
“Often the owners [of No.725 Sandy Bay Road] will take a 40-minute hike all the way to the Mount Nelson Signal Station for a milkshake and cup of coffee before heading back.
“Then it would be straight to the pool for a refreshing dip, I reckon!”
Set on almost 3000sqm of land in one of Tasmania’s most prestigious suburbs, this large triple-level family home has a 320sqm floor plan designed to maximise the views of the River Derwent, Tasman Bridge, Eastern Shore and Bruny Island.
The action on the river can be enjoyed from the well-kept tennis court on one side of the home, or from the solar-heated pool on the other.
The setting, high on the hill, ensures privacy and seclusion.
Catering well to large families and entertainers, the timber kitchen — highlighted by a unique island bench — flows through to a large formal dining and lounge, with a combination of wood heating and airconditioning.
Vast floor-to-ceiling windows capture the show on the river.
The private master suite on the middle level is well equipped with an ensuite, a walk-through wardrobe and a sitting room.
The four bathrooms are each fitted with opulent under-tile heating for luxuriously cosy winters.
The home’s flexible floor plan includes income-producing self-contained quarters on the ground level.
With a contemporary renovation, it is currently returning $430 per week on a fixed term, but it has been used previously as profitable short-term accommodation.
Around the home there are courtyards, decks and balconies offering a perfect spot to relax or drink in the view at any time of the day or night.
The property has two double carports and plenty of off-street parking.
There is a large storage shed/workshop and further capacity available in the attic.
Bicentennial Park Reserve backs on to the property’s side gate. There is also an easement with direct right-of-way access to a shared, secluded beach.
