Historic Cobbity is a blast from the past
THERE is a stretch of historic homes in Davey Street, Hobart, that would rival any in the state.
Built in the late 1920s, Cobbity sits comfortably among them: stately, grand, maybe just a little imposing.
The chance to buy this stunning and secluded manor home is one not to be missed.
This distinguished South Hobart home is a testament to outstanding craftsmanship that has been splendidly preserved over the years.
Visiting this property is like taking a tour through the architecture of the past.
On show is original woodwork that can be admired in the solid timber floors, timber architraves, picture rails, timber-framed windows and exposed wooden beams.
Stained-glass windows are featured throughout, as well as stunning glass-panelled doors that allow natural light to flow through every room.
A classic beauty such as this was bound to feature a formal living room and formal dining room — tick and tick.
The fantastic fireplaces, deep-sill windows and spacious areas for entertaining or relaxing combine a past elegance with timeless comfort.
Bathed in afternoon light, there is a sunroom that would make a fantastic studio with its views across the grounds.
Cobbity’s immaculate garden scenes can be enjoyed from many vantage points throughout the home. It gives the property a feeling of being in the English countryside.
Back indoors, there is a large family room and a spacious kitchen with ample storage.
A magnificent timber staircase in the foyer leads to the top floor.
Three bedrooms can be found on this level with built-in wardrobes and lovely windows.
Alongside the divine sunroom — or fourth bedroom — there is a large home office and a nursery.
From the bath to the corner shower, the spacious bathroom boasts all of the modern comforts.
Off the kitchen there is a courtyard.
With established trees, a range of plants and shrubs, as well as extensive green lawns, this property is an exquisite parcel of highly desirable Hobart land.
