Magic cir­cle of life

Mercury (Hobart) - Property - - Real Estate -

THEREare out­stand­ing har­bour views from this op­u­lent, multi-level man­sion with a touch of the Ro­manesque and lo­cated on a land­scaped cor­ner block in a pres­ti­gious res­i­den­tial area.

The home is de­signed for eco-ef­fi­ciency and there are views from most rooms.

Ex­ten­sive use of beau­ti­ful red gran­ite en­hances its so­phis­ti­cated fit-out. The win­dows are dou­ble-glazed, there is an I-con­trol elec­tri­cal sys­tem, wiring for an au­dio­vi­sual sys­tem and ducted vac­u­um­ing.

De­spite its con­sid­er­able size, the home is es­sen­tially lowmain­te­nance in­side and out. There is a side por­tico be­fore an amaz­ing cir­cu­lar vestibule with a soar­ing ceil­ing, which has at its cen­tre a rounded vault with a dou­ble-glazed sky­light and down­lights.

Asweeping stair­case with wrought-iron rail­ing leads to the up­per level. There is also a short flight of steps down to the vast open liv­ing area, which com­prises a lounge­room with down­light­ing and an air­con­di­tioner, a din­ing area with vaulted ceil­ing and a fam­ily area with ac­cess to a wide front bal­cony with an at­trac­tively curved cen­tral sec­tion and a colon­nade. The view is fromMtWelling­ton around to the city and on across the River Der­went to the Meehan Range and East­ern Shore beaches.

The mar­vel­lous kitchen has a gran­ite floor, bench­tops and break­fast bar and in­cludes a gas hob with a stain­less-steel splash­back and a stain­lesssteel and glass ex­haust flue, twin un­der-bench ovens and a stain­less-steel dish­washer.

Arear door from the kitchen pro­vides ac­cess to an in­ter­nal stair­case down to the twobed­room, self-con­tained apart­ment, which also has dou­ble doors to the front colon­naded ter­race and gar­den. There is also an ad­join­ing store-room.

Also off the main foyer area are a coat closet, a bath­room and a gran­ite-lined toi­let, be­fore a pas­sage­way lead­ing to a laun­dry, a bed­room or of­fice with a slid­ing door to a bal­cony with har­bour views and a spacious home theatre.

An­earby door leads to a side bar­be­cue ter­race with steps up to the dou­ble drive-through garage/work­shop with an au­to­matic panel tilt-door and easy-ac­cess paved drive­way.

Onthe top level is a land­ing with a built-in linen cup­board and a study with it­sown­partly cov­ered bal­cony with col­umns. There are also two bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes and an­other bath­room with a toi­let. Awalk-in closet has a chute to the laun­dry be­low.

Also on this level is the mas­ter bed­room with a sitting area, a walk-in wardrobe and a spa bath­room, which in­cludes a toi­let and a bidet.
