Coun­try clas­sic hits high notes

Mercury (Hobart) - Property - - Front Page -

SE­TON a hill­side above Wat­tle Grove, this ex­cep­tional house of­fers glo­ri­ous, panoramic views across to Port Huon and along the Huon River to Franklin.

The home it­self is a fresh take on the clas­sic Aus­tralian homestead, with a broad cen­tral pas­sage­way, off which are the bed­rooms and bath­rooms.

The pas­sage­way leads to a large fire­place­warmed liv­ing room and spa­cious kitchen. The house has a deep wrap- around ve­randa, high ceil­ings and fire­places in vir­tu­ally ev­ery room.

Namedvilla Talia and built in 2007, this coun­try res­i­dence has fea­tured in a num­ber of mag­a­zines, in­cludin­gaus­tralian

Bed­rooms are fin­ished with deep car­pets and bath­rooms com­pleted in over­sized tiles, while tim­bers from an old Syd­ney wharf have been re­cy­cled and remilled into a hand­some sub­strate in high-traf­fic ar­eas.

The su­perb kitchen of­fers clas­sic cab­i­nets and clean lines, stone bench­tops and Miele ap­pli­ances. The ad­ja­cent din­ing area could eas­ily seat 12 or more.

Con­tem­po­rary con­ve­niences in­clude gas hot water and full in­su­la­tion, re­verse-cy­cle ducted heat­ing in the ceil­ing and heated floors in the bath­rooms.

The vi­brant town of Cygnet is just 10 min­utes away.
