Tran­quil­ity amid the

Mercury (Hobart) - Property - - Real Estate -

PROXIMITYto the city cen­tre and the North Ho­bart re­tail and restau­rant precinct en­hances the ap­peal of this nicely pre­sented and solid fam­ily home.

Built in the 1920s, the home re­tains­man­yof the ar­chi­tec­tural fea­tures of the pe­riod and a dis­cern­ing buyer might well un­der­take a com­pre­hen­sive make-over to fur­ther up­grade this com­fort­able res­i­dence.

Con­sul­tant Stepahn Shap­pell says that its con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion close to a host of small busi­nesses, as well as a num­ber of schools, also makes it an ex­cel­lent propo­si­tion for the land­lord in­vestor.

The level prop­erty, with easy care grounds, is on a bend and set back a lit­tle from busy

Bur­nett Street, pro­vid­ing for pri­vacy and per­haps sur­pris­ing tran­quil­ity.

It has a tiled front porch­way and then a stained-glass en­try to a cen­tral hall­way with pic­ture rails, a fret­work arch and built-in stor­age cup­board be­fore a com­fort­able lounge with a gas heater set into a fire­place and an arch to a small ad­join­ing din­ing bay.

Fur­ther along the hall is an up-graded kitchen with a sky­light, a break­fast bar, a pantry cup­board, a stove with range-hood and an ad­join­ing fam­ily/meals area with an elec­tric panel heater and slid­ing door to a paved, low main­te­nance and se­curely fenced back­yard with a lock-up tim­ber stor­age shed and re­mote con­trolled roller-door ac­cess to a rear, paved park­ing area.

There’s also a tiled laun­dry with door to the yard, an up­graded bath­room with a sky­light, a tiled floor, a cor­ner shower bay, a van­ity unit, a toi­let, a built-in cup­board and a Tas­tic light/heater/ex­haust and two good-sized bed­rooms with one hav­ing a gas heater set into a fire­place and the other, a floor-to-ceil­ing built-in wardrobe and a box bay win­dow.

This North Ho­bart prop­erty also is just a tod­dle from pop­u­lar Soundy Park with its chil­dren’s play­ground.
