Your move with mansion
DIRECTLYacross the road from the Wrest Point Casino sits this striking Victorian mansion which offers not just a fantastic position but also development opportunity.
Built in the 1890s, Amberley House is at present used as bed and breakfast accommodation, however, the Hobart City Council has previously approved a development application for the 1669m2 block to be subdivided.
Prospective buyers will need to reapply for the subdivision which would see Amberley House on one block, while the second 790m2 block could be used as additional guest or residential accommodation.
Also, the mansion could either continue as a B&Bor could easily be converted back to a family residence, as was its original purpose.
Amberley offers eight bedrooms, all with ensuites, spread across four different types of room – classic, spa, one bedroom apartment and the suite.
Classic rooms have a queen bed, ensuite, TV, mini-bar and tea and coffee making facilities.
Spa rooms includes all this and a corner spa for two. The one bedroom apartment has a separate living room and full kitchen. Andthe suite has a separate sunroom and a balcony with water views.
Onthe ground floor there are also two kitchens, a large living area with French doors to the rear courtyard, reception and office area.
At the rear of the property is a self-contained two bedroom cottage, used as the owner’s residence.
This leads onto the private English-style garden that backs onto Queensborough Oval and which features an in-ground chess board.
The property has a four-star rating, a liquor licence, and could be easily run by a couple.
