Rare river gem

Mercury (Hobart) - Property - - Front Page - JAR­RAD BE­VAN

WITH win­dows on four sides bring­ing the sun in­doors all day long, this im­pres­sive ’70s wa­ter­front home is a rar­ity in Bat­tery Point.

As Ho­bart’s most ex­pen­sive and de­sired sub­urb, Bat­tery Point is home to many his­tor­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant and ex­pen­sive prop­er­ties.

But lo­ca­tions right on the wa­ter­side, like this one in Marine Tce, that is some­thing that doesn’t come along ev­ery day.

Knight Frank se­nior res­i­den­tial sales con­sul­tant Rorie M Auld said this prop­erty was one of very few ti­tles not de­fined by low or high wa­ter mark.

“In­stead, it is de­fined by lin­ear mea­sure­ment ex­tend­ing into the wa­ter. It in­cludes ti­tle to a small area be­yond the low wa­ter mark,” he said.

“Among the home’s ex­cel­lent fea­tures is the pro­fes­sion­ally land­scaped ter­race.

“It is shel­tered by a glass wind screen, en­joys ex­cel­lent views and the sounds of lap­ping wa­ter.” Mr Auld said the chance to buy this house was a “very spe­cial op­por­tu­nity” in blue rib­bon Bat­tery Point. This three level home’s win­dows frame pic­ture-per­fect views over the Der­went River to Wrest Point Casino, Sandy Bay’s beaches and be­yond.

Each of the ex­pan­sive liv­ing ar­eas of­fer wa­ter views.

A de­light­ful tim­ber kitchen with a pantry flows through to a gen­er­ous din­ing area and liv­ing room.

The level be­low in­cludes two bed­rooms with built-in wardrobes and a main bed­room with a walk-in wardrobe and en­suite.

A bal­cony off the main bed­room is a con­stant re­minder of the chang­ing vista of the Der­went River.

The bed­rooms share a large bath­room with a bath and shower.

On the lower ground level there is a liv­ing room that can be used as a li­brary area with its built-in book­shelves.

A glass door opens to the ter­race which leads down to the wa­ter­front and ne­go­ti­ated ac­cess to a jetty.

Mr Auld said con­sid­er­ing Bat­tery Point’s ship­build­ing tra­di­tion, one of the home’s finest fea­tures was the sub­stan­tial 19th cen­tury UK winch in­stalled on the home’s lower level.

“Also, noted builder Bob Mirowski han­dled all of the ren­o­va­tions about 12 years ago and re­tained as many good ’70s fea­tures as he could,” he said.
