4 Derwentwater Avenue, Sandy Bay.
IN the fashionable suburb of Sandy Bay, this open and spacious family home is set in a tightly held street.
Access is via a private road to the lovely home, which boasts four bedrooms, two bathrooms and three open car spots.
Chris Huxtable, who holds the listing with Fall Real Estate, says the home’s privacy is part of its special appeal.
“It’s really nestled in there, a lovely situation,’’ Chris says.
“Properties in Derwentwater Avenue are tightly held and they don’t come on the market very often.
“It’s a prized area for the simple reason that it’s close to the Sandy Bay shopping precinct and the university.
“People can easily walk to the shops and all the amenities.”
One of many places to enjoy the river views.
Within a short trip in the car, or walking distance, there is access to the Sandy Bay beaches, Marieville Esplanade, the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania, supermarkets and many other restaurants and specialty shops.
The home itself is surrounded by stunning and tranquil Japanese gardens and a beautifully perfumed rose garden.
“While the house has been upgraded and freshly painted throughout, it’s ripe for an architectural renovation, with its superb views of the River Derwent and Mount Wellington making this a very special property,” Chris says.
Comfy interiors with green garden views.
The rooms are all large and bright, with real potential for entertaining in this quiet nook of Hobart.
Chris says the property would suit a growing family, but also those with different needs.
“The property is special because it has a separate self-contained area on the lower level,’’ she says.
“It’s very suitable for an older student to have their own space, or for extended family to live below.”
