House in LENAH VALLEY
Old-school glamour and scale
- 4 Beds
- 2 Baths
- 2 Cars
In a quiet street, in the backblocks of Lenah Valley lies a secret garden. Within the secret garden there is a giant stirring it has been dormant for a while but it is yearning to reach its former glory. Welcome to 98 Doyle Avenue a world of old-school glamour and surprises!
Thick established gardens sprawl across 1993sq metres in a large block that takes in two titles including the main residence, solar heated pool and outhouse, deck area and six off-street parking allotments (3 undercover).
Inside this original 1960s home is a treasure trove of gems requiring a tactful hand to guide a modern finish. Solid structures and generous floor plan across two levels offers an incredible challenge to delight experienced renovators.
On the top level, large adjoining living areas (dividing doors) exert their own unique character with floor to ceiling windows and striking Blackwood cabinetry and bookcase features (in-built). Views across Hobart stretching to the Lindisfarne Marina dominate sightlines and bring light and space into the living zone. The kitchen modestly extends from the main living quarters and links to a laundry and outside access.
Down the hallway via split-level stairs three bedrooms await varying in size and functionality with opportunity to combine or apply mixed use. The bathroom is a rare find as a quaint example of the period with stalls separating the bath and vanity, shower and toilet with external access to complement pool and outside activities.
The master bedroom sits elevated at the top of the house and makes the most of its sunny position with its own sitting/dressing room, ensuite and sliding doors as a gateway to the garden beyond.
Outside is a perfect hide and seek landscape lush and thick established gardens, in-ground swimming pool (needs some love) and enough room for vegie patch, orchard and outdoor entertaining.
On the lower level, spiral stairs wind to an enclave out of an Austin Powers blockbuster complete with a gorgeous in-built green velvet bench seats, plush carpet, wallpaper and bar with serving area. The area is a striking reminder of the past and with a deft hand could be a genius restoration.
There is a lot to like about this property for the visionaries out there it just needs you to make it happen.
