Modernist masterpiece with inspiring position
Conceived and built almost a decade before MONA, this residence doubles up as a magnificent family home and for art lovers, a live-in art gallery, all positioned within a beautiful coastal-bushland setting, within a fifteen-minute drive of Hobart city centre.
Designed by Brian Wyatt this incredible home is the embodiment of modernist-industrial architecture admired for its sharp lines, elongated expanses of corroded steel, pre-cast concrete panels and enormous glass walls and stunning position overlooking a sandy beach and adjacent a natural bushland reserve.
The home incorporates five double bedrooms, including walk in robe and ensuite to master, an incredible study overlooking the beach and bush, a spacious kitchen-dining zone complimented by a walk-in-pantry/cellar (in times past used as an art repository), powder room, laundry and a multi-purpose living area, split into two adjoining wings and featuring lofty ceilings, glass surrounds and spilling out onto a large triangular deck.
Features and inclusions comprise: double glazing, polished Tasmanian Oak flooring, alarm system, zoned ceiling heat, bespoke joinery, extensive natural sunlight and inspiring no expense spared architectural touches.
Externally, the home includes three distinct timber decks, offering truly luxurious outdoor entertaining options, a new double garage with auto door and fully tiled lower ground level swimming pool, within a low-maintenance native garden setting.
The property sits on a commanding allotment with near level access, at the end of no-through roadway, leading to Taroona Park, popular with locals for its bushland attributes and fronting onto a sandy beach with pretty views over the River Derwent. Representing a fifteen or so minute drive to the city centre, the property is convenient to local schools, shops and the Channel Highway bus route.
Offered to the open market for the first time, this is an opportunity to acquire a modern masterpiece like no other.
