FOR property lovers on the hunt for a home of exquisite detail, period charm and immaculate presentati­on, this gem will be singing your song.

No.7 Greenlands Avenue has been owned by one family since it was completed in 1935; and now it is on the market for the first time.

The two or three-bedroom home — known as Rosbrae — blends a delightful mix of Victorian, Federation and Arts and Crafts architectu­ral styles in perfect harmony.

And, the current owner has invested substantia­lly in a renovation and update of the house around 2019 and 2020.

From the moment you step inside the front door, the home feels warm and welcoming, in no small part by its sunny nature combined with new hydronic heating throughout.

It also boasts a new gas-fired hot water system, new wiring including the garage and workshop, re-plumbing and a new kitchen.

Both bathrooms have been updated to mindfully meld modern and period eras.

Off the master, the ensuite has modern amenities like underfloor heating, custom ordered tiles and a walk-in shower juxtaposed with decorative details in the pressed metal ceiling and an original window. The highlight is the bespoke sassafras cupboard.

And that’s not all on the renovation front, the house also has new appliances including the washer and dryer, its original Tasmanian oak floors have been refinished, Luxaflex Duette blinds have been custom fitted on rear veranda windows, rear bedroom, and in the lounge room, plus the external brickwork was re-pointed and a garage and workshop painted.

Knight Frank sales consultant Abi Freeman described the home as “immaculate” and said it was wonderful to see a property that had been loved and maintained to such a high level.

“It is a stunning home with so many intriguing and impressive features to discover,” she said.

“With its quality and the enviable location, I’d expect there will be many buyers who would love it to be their next home.

“It is the type of home that has a really beautiful feel.

“It would be well suited to someone that wants the perfect Sandy Bay location, all on one level, a home with comfortabl­e modern
