Your move with man­sion

Mercury (Hobart) - Property - - Front Page -

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.
