Number 11 Edward Street is an absolute gem of a property...the quintessential sandstone property Tasmania is so famous for and visitors covet. The allotment is expansive at 4047sqm, the topography gently undulating with a mini orchard and a small productive vineyard of mixed grapes for home use. Worthy of note are the heritage approved plans for an extension at the rear parallel to Bathurst Street.
Circa 1830, The Dispensary is a single storey cottage, very quaint and constructed of a sandstone skillion at the rear with the front facade of ashlar stone.
Needless to say, the building is of significance not only for its setting in a historic streetscape but also represents a lovely example of this architectural style.
The interiors are charming with a delightful ambient soft light, fine details of the era include multi paned timber windows and doors. Wonderful high ceilings for the living bedroom akin to a studio space with a full sized bathroom and separate kitchen and dining space at the rear which opens to a lovely terrace overlooking a mature garden.
Fruit trees include Quinces, Apples, Elderberries and a magnificent Mulberry and pear tree. A Viburnum Tinus hedge borders the side boundary and driveway access from Bathurst Street. There are also some rare ornamentals, notably Corylus Avellana Contorta one of the witch hazel family.
The position is just superb! Elevated with uninterrupted views which cannot be built out to the Coal River on the corner of Edward and Bathurst Streets. The property was once used for tourist accommodation with a 4 star rating at the time and was incredibly sought after being situated right in the heart of village, so just moments from the iconic strip of cafes and boutique shopping for collectables all enjoying the now world famous historic Bridge Street location and streetscape.
Easy commuting and equal distance to both the city fringe and Hobart Airport.
This property is such a rarity , being offered to the open market for the first time in over 40 years.
Grasp this opportunity to secure something really special with enormous opportunity to add further value.
