Federation Perfection

  • 3 Beds

There are classic homes and then there are absolute gems that reflect the period in which they were built to perfection. This beautiful Federation home on a prime corner position in one of the most sought after locations in Hobart epitomises this magnificently oozing character and charm.
Built in 1910, it sits as a time capsule shielded from the street by an imposing high brick wall, striking in its rich green and white colour scheme and pretty cottage garden providing privacy and the perfect backdrop for what lies inside.
It features all of the beautiful architecture and fittings of the era. It literally is like taking a step back in time so perfectly has this home been decorated and maintained. Bay windows in multiple rooms, high ceilings, picture rails, original fireplaces, chandeliers throughout and gorgeous wallpapers and window furnishings all complement the period furniture.

The home is currently configured as two bedrooms with three living areas, formal and informal, but one of these in particular would lend itself to a beautiful master bedroom and ensuite. It features a sun room and sitting area, capturing the morning and afternoon sunshine.
The formal living room is directly to the left off the front entrance with lovely fireplace. The wide hallway has a striking floor to ceiling vintage mirror.
The first of two bathrooms is simple, functional and well positioned. Opposite is the first of two large bedrooms and a third living room with rich yellow walls and a beaming fireplace.
The kitchen is a large country style with casual dining. A separate large walk in pantry houses the fridge, leaving the kitchen to be a nice space to cook and mingle in. Off the kitchen area is a study, laundry and second bathroom with separate toilet, but you could easily renovate this whole area to make a beautiful sunny atrium-style kitchen and dining if you want.
There is a large flat paved courtyard, room for two cars off street parking with access to Pedder Street, and an undercover area with garden shed.
The location is ideal, with Sacred Heart and other schools nearby, as well as Woolworth and the Kmart Plaza all walking distance.
This is an absolute gem for lovers of Federation-style homes and is sure to be snapped up quickly.
