Our modern home is open plan with extensive north facing windows. It is set on one acre in a small rural subdivision, looking out to Mt. Wellington and the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
Timber floors are a feature of the living areas of our home. The lounge room looks out to Mt. Wellington and is a peaceful place to read or listen to music. The living room and dining room look out on the large front garden and have TV and DVD. The kitchen is a central feature of the dining and living area and has all modern appliances.
The main bedroom has queen size bed with walk in wardrobe and ensuite. There are two smaller bedrooms with playroom and bathroom at the other end of the house with water views. One bedroom has a double bed and the other a single. Downstairs is the fourth bedroom which is a quiet hideaway with a queen bed. Also downstairs is the large garage with bikes, camping equipment and golf clubs. There is an exercise bike and treadmill upstairs if you are keen.
Our house is located in a small town which is quickly becoming a rural suburb of Hobart. Kingston is 10 minutes away with supermarkets, cafes, banks and a variety of other shops. Hobart is 20 minutes with everything that this beautiful harbour city has to offer. Just down the road is a little fruit and vegetable store selling wonderful fresh and organic produce. It is owned by the people whose farmland our subdivision has been developed on.
Hobart has a great variety of restaurants, cafes, markets and galleries. You can visit Salamanca Market on a Saturday and wander around the stalls set in front of the historic waterfront buildings. The museum that the art world is talking about (MONA) is a lovely ferry ride away from the city centre, as is Peppermint Bay in the other direction. Port Historic Site is about an hour and half drive and is well worth a visit. Stop in to see the Devil Park on your way or take a small detour to Richmond Village. The area south of Margate consists of the beautiful Huon Valley with Tahune Airwalk, Bruny Island, and many little towns. There are extensive opportunities for bushwalking and photography and some very scenic drives. If you are visiting during January, you might like to attend the Cygnet Folk Festival or the Taste of Tasmania.
