FROM its lush green perch, spectacular Mostyn Brae feels like it is sitting on the edge of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel — absolute paradise.
This outstanding 5.6ha property at Flowerpot in the Kingborough municipality is home to two dwellings — a 1800s homestead and a bold, contemporary masterpiece designed and built by award-winning local firms MGArchitecture and In2Construction Services.
Harcourts Kingborough director Andrew Henry — who has been in the real estate industry going on 20 years — said he would rank this property among the best he has had the pleasure of listing.
He said while every property had its appeals, this one was right up there with the finest.
The eagle-eyed attention to detail and the careful consideration given to every inch of the property set it apart.
“The owners bought the parcel of land and then built exactly what they wanted,” Andrew said.
“The house was designed by one of Tasmania’s best architects, Maria Gigney. I am a fan of her work, and this home is typical of her style with its abundant glass, metal and concrete.
“And it is not just the house. The infrastructure that they have put in around the property — roads and services — is fantastic. A lot of thought has gone into it.”
The newer dwelling was built five years ago with a futuristic, supremely comfortable feel. Its solid tilt-slab construction blends with beautiful timber features throughout.
Double-glazing, full insulation, polished floors and hydronic heating add to the luxury.
The home’s four bedrooms are positioned on the lower level. This provides a peaceful, private separation from the main living area above.
All of the bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and two have ensuites. The remaining bedrooms are conveniently separated by a bathroom.
There is a separate library, laundry and internal access to the double garage on this level.
On the top floor, the sleek and stylish kitchen takes pride of place in the modern, open living zone. Clean white facings, stainless steel and timber finishes with mirrored overheads, dual dishwashers and an extensive butler’s pantry — this kitchen ticks every box.
Open to the dining and living area, the upper level includes floor-to-ceiling views.
With a seamless fusion of indoor and outdoor spaces, the living area opens to a terrace and a deck, providing the ultimate space to entertain.
Beyond the kitchen there is a sunroom that can be opened on either side.
Surrounding the home are landscaped gardens, luscious pastures, multiple dams, an above-ground vegie patch, a greenhouse, double carport and a lined workshop with power and wood heating.
Head further down the property towards the water and its original dwelling can be discovered. Dating back to the 1800s, this homestead offers four bedrooms on the top floor, a kitchen, a massive bathroom/laundry and multiple living areas on the lower level.
The classic veranda will be the No.1 spot to take in the views. The charming home underwent extensive restoration and is fully furnished.
Andrew said the original dwelling has heaps of potential.
“If the next owner of the property wanted to turn it into a B&B, that would be something pretty amazing to see,” he said. “This property boasts a cracking spot on the water’s edge.
“There are some beautiful homes in the area — it’s a bit of a Golden Mile down through there.”
