A chance to live the high life
THIS waterfront twostorey penthouse offers privacy and impeccable views over Hobart’s docks, waterways and beaches.
Unusual among the Henry Jones IXL properties, the residence is a seamless meld of two apartments into one space.
The upper level provides a living area that wraps around a sophisticated galley kitchen, dining and sitting sections.
The design creates a residence with wonderful spaces for art and sculpture, bathed in light through the floor-toceiling glass and rooftop clerestory windows.
Twin atriums also bring sunlight into both levels of the penthouse, at the lower level creating a private tropical garden.
The kitchen offers all European appliances, including an in-built espresso maker, a double oven and a handsome stainless-steel benchtop. Furnishings, tables and sofas are bespoke pieces, custom-made for the home.
The elegant design and decor of the living space is repeated on the lower level. Here, the accommodations split into two separate wings, creating private domains that each have two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The bedrooms are oversized to accommodate a comfortable sitting area.
Onthe water side, the bedroom also has itsown balcony.
In addition to stylish bathrooms and laundries in both wings, this level also features walk-in wardrobes and multiple storage spaces.
Creature comforts in the penthouse include a C-bus system that delivers the ultimate in light and sound control from every room, enabling a selection of audio (even from an ipod) to be enjoyed anywhere.
Similarly, clerestory windows, privacy blinds and a video security system are controlled by the touch of a button.
The property is secure and offers garage space for two cars as well as on-site storage.
Consultant Lynne Page says the penthouse is being sold with its custom-made furnishings and art.
