Grand Federation Era Residence on Park-Like 1,839m² Site.

Offered to market for the first time in thirty-seven years, “Montmelic” is one of Mount Stuart’s stateliest homes occupying an enormous north facing 1837 square metre allotment with prized dual frontages to both Auvergne Avenue and Senator Street.

Of solid brick construction, this grand C1920 double storey residence retains all the sought-after features of its era: an impressive façade, open fireplaces, high ceilings and skirting boards, exposed hardwood flooring, bay windows, timber staircase and more.

At ground level, accommodation consists of a lovely eat in country-style kitchen with Miele and AEG appliances, a sitting-television room with bay window and open fire-place, a north facing formal lounge room with superb views, open fire place and bay window, formal dining room with fire-place, a brilliant conservatory offering superb views and bathed in natural northerly light and a separate laundry, bathroom and workshop wing.

The upper level features four/five bedrooms, a family bathroom along with a wide landing suited to a home-office/study. Three of the aforementioned bedrooms are not only large, light and airy but offer impressive, elevated views.

Outside there is off street parking for two vehicles off Senator Street.  

Favoured with a highly desirable north facing outlook this property offers simply commanding views. The residence is centrally positioned within the land holding, ensuring both exceptional privacy and an incredibly rare urban sanctuary.

This is a property which will appeal to those desiring a family home with abundant room, sunny aspect and convenience. It may also appeal to those contemplating a sensitive redevelopment (subject to usual approvals) given its coveted dual frontage and generous land holding.

This is a fabulous location, close to both North Hobart and Lenah Valley shops, Calvary Hospital, a range of schools including The Friends’ School, easy access to walking trails and reserves and represents a short drive to the city centre. 

“Montmelic” represents a once in a generation opportunity to acquire a beautiful and stately period residence on an enormous land holding.
