43b Mount Stuart Road
History, location, views and potential – This beautiful solid brick federation home in sought after Mount Stuart, which is only a short walk to the North Hobart restaurant strip and 30 min. walk to the CBD, has it all – and more!
Perfectly sited on the high side of Mount Stuart Rd, the first thing you notice as you step onto the front veranda are the spectacular views over the city, across the Derwent and beyond. The next thing that takes your eye is the stunning original fretwork, leadlight windows, brick “porthole” and original pressed metal ceiling – and we haven’t even opened the front door!
The home is a true time-warp. This quality residence has been loved by the same family for the last 60 years and now it is your chance to be the custodian of this very special place. With a long wide hallway (with arch), 11’ ceilings, beautiful wide 5 panel doors, original door furniture, stunning mantlepieces, ceiling rose etc etc, this home is a visual feast for lovers of federation homes. As such, its originality makes it the perfect candidate for a relatively easy restoration. The kitchen and bathroom are pure 70’s and would probably be the main target of any renovation.
There are 3 large bedrooms, the main with beautiful baye window. There is also a living/dining room and beautiful little sunroom with spectacular views. The huge formal lounge room is captivating, and you can just picture yourself sitting on the old chesterfield in front of a raging fire in the middle of winter – life doesn’t get any better!
Set on a 940sqm block with off-street parking for 2 cars, a couple of old sheds and an old pear tree, this amazing slice of Mt Stuart will be offered to the market by public auction on 18/4/20. Offers prior to auction will be considered.
