A chance to live the high life

Mercury (Hobart) - Property - - Front Page -

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.
