‘Iluka’ is one of Sandy Bay’s most instantly recognisable and admired homes.
Built 1926 by architect Lauriston Crisp, whose home it was, ‘Iluka’ has had just a handful of owners.
Set back from the roadway behind impressive heritage listed sandstone and wrought iron gates, this handsome and beautifully built home offers a flexible floor plan. It has a wide entry foyer via an arched portico, a large lounge room with feature brick fire-place and exposed timber ceiling beams, an interconnected sunroom, spacious dining room with fire place and doorway to a rear terrace, three bedrooms and study which could double up as a fourth bedroom, three bathrooms (one refurbished in recent years), two kitchens, laundry and an additional living room.
The home has in times past been configured as a three-bedroom house + one bedroom apartment and therefore offers fabulous flexibility to those with extended families or additional income generation potential.
The home enjoys highly sought-after level access, a secure automated gateway, superbly presented low maintenance gardens, a free-standing double carport, a large north-east facing paved outdoor entertaining area and a wide driveway with porte-cochere.
Homes are not built like this anymore. Featuring double brick walls with hard plaster internal finishes, timber lined ceilings, impressive brick fire-places, feature multi-paned windows with retro fitted double-glazing.
Brilliant super central Sandy Bay location. Walk to Sandy Bay shops, Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania/DSS, The University of Tasmania’s Sandy Bay campus, The Hutchins School, public transport (bus), recreational reserves and much more; all within five-minute drive of Hobart city centre. This is a premium address.
