BUILT in 1990 and inspired by streamline moderne architecture, architect Neil Wade designed this home in a functionalist style with curving forms, clean horizontal lines and nautical features.

The expansive floor plan stretches out over 322 square metres.

The striking minimal design, superb natural light and generous, fluid living areas form the backdrop for the glorious harbour views that can be enjoyed from this spacious home.

The main bedroom boasts a dressing room, double vanity and an ensuite.

It opens to a deck and offers exceptional water views.

Huge views.

There are two more bedrooms, a bathroom, a separate toilet and a laundry on the same level.

The well-engineered building was constructed from two concrete slab floors with steel beam supports.

The circular light well and large porthole windows — together with the ship railing balustrades and railing on the stairs and balcony — combine to create a unique and stylish finish.

Divided by a glass door, the double living area spills out to a large terrace, creating a flowing indoor-outdoor entertaining area.

Open plan living areas.

A central clerestory roofline casts light into the open, airy living space and breaks the otherwise clean lines and shadow cornices.

The kitchen was designed for function and ease with plenty of storage and two pantries, stone benchtops, a pyrolytic oven and induction cooktop.

Downstairs, the foyer area offers storage.

There is also a spacious living area, a large fourth bedroom, bathroom and a large wine cellar on this level.

Space to play.

The highly sought-after inner-city location of this West Hobart property combined with its elevated site ensure privacy.

The level garden is landscaped, and the property has excellent parking options, including a spacious double garage.

The home is about 2.5km from Hobart’s CBD and is close to the Lansdowne Primary School, services and public transport.
