Rare chance to buy in one of Hobart’s best streets

WAIMEA Ave houses rarely come to market — and even less often when you are looking for a period home with 1930s charm and intrigue.

Sometimes a year or two will fly by without a Waimea house changing hands.

It is clear to see why these homes are tightly held.

This Sandy Bay neighbourhood is among Tasmania’s most prestigious and coveted locales.

It is a leafy and well established area with a mix of large historic homes — like No.19, which hit the market this week — alongside sleek modern marvels and modest units.

Rare to market.

Incredible interiors.

Wolf Property co-director Cam Rogers described Waimea Ave as a prestigious street occupied by some of Hobart’s best homes.

“Opportunities to purchase in this street are rare, particularly established land holdings like No.19 Waimea,” Mr Rogers said.

“Waimea is arguably Tasmania’s finest address for family homes.

“This home is a generational opportunity to acquire over a quarter acre in the heart of Sandy Bay.”

A visit to this private, desirable property makes a great impression from the moment you arrive.

Out on the street, the stately home is set on a rise with sprawling gardens and tall trees framing the view.

Entertain or relax.

A large and leafy land holding.

“One of the things that I love about this home is the privacy and set back,” Mr Rogers said.

“In an inner-city suburb like Sandy Bay, it is a privilege to be able to look across the treetops, plants and flowers within your own garden from the comfort of your living room.

“This home would be ideal for families of all different sizes.

“It is not too large for a couple or small family, but it is spacious enough for a big one.”

No.19 Waimea is on the market for the first time in about one dozen years.

The landmark home was built in 1935 of classic brick and tile construction with a floorplan that stretches across multiple levels.

The home is set in an elevated position on the allotment, hidden from the street by an established oak tree and three silver birch trees.

The next owner will be able to enjoy chasing the sun throughout the day as the gardens offer a number of special enclaves in which to hang out with a good coffee, book or conversation.

A winding driveway leads up the gently sloping block to an undercover carport and garage under-house area.

Well equipped.

And well positioned.

Step inside to discover polished timber floors that run from the grand entry foyer to each room on the ground level of the home.

The living room is gorgeous, like something from a glossy home interior design magazine, with a dash of history and a touch of modern flair. This space is positioned to enjoy a unique aspect of the treetops and lush gardens within the property.

The kitchen, dining room and atrium occupy the northern side of the home.

The kitchen features AEG appliances, contemporary tapware and lighting alongside gas cooking.

It leads directly to a sun-filled, private atrium with a northeast aspect. This wonderful space might be the favourite of the next buyer if they love to entertain.

Or as a spot to relax with friends and family, the atrium offers a seamless flow between indoor and outdoor living.

Get some work done, then enjoy the river view.

Luxury of space.

The ground floor of the home is kept cozy by a reverse cycle ducted system and open fireplaces in the living and dining areas.

A generous staircase leads to the first floor of the home, an area with a flexible layout and use options including three bedrooms, a dressing room and bathroom.

For those that work from home, there is a treat for you on this level, too. Although, beware, the glorious view might be a distraction when trying to finish a project.

Warm and welcoming.

Waimea, the place to be.

The top floor rooms boast water views and are perfectly positioned to catch the morning sun.

Private, warm, and positioned in one of Tasmania’s most desired streets, No.19 presents an opportunity to acquire a significant land holding in a blue-chip street with a home ready to move into immediately.

This property is a home to be enjoyed for generations.

No.19 is listed with Wolf Property and priced at $3.2m-plus. There will be an open home on Saturday at 11am.
