FROM its attractive, historic street presence to the allure of a family-sized home in Tasmania’s finest suburb, this property is a showstopper.

It is the type of property that is a joy to explore.

And it is the type of property that will absolutely fill a notepad when a reporter is scrawling notes to cover the home’s many highlights.

Chief among them is the entertainer’s paradise that is formed by the kitchen, family dining room, the 31sqm balcony and the living room — immaculate.

A showstopper.

Enchanting elegance.

Harcourts Signature agent Jerome Thiessen said buyers who had inspected the home had been blown away by this living zone.

“It has got real wow factor,’’ he said.

“People have been impressed by this sublime space and the outstanding views across the water and around to the mountain.

“The bespoke, $75,000 jarrah kitchen is beautiful with its huge oven, gas stovetop, built-in pantry, Corian benchtop and curved bulkhead.”

Historic No.10 St Georges Terrace was originally built in 1890. This three-storey, five-bedroom Victorian home is a stunning example of timeless elegance.

Perfect spot for entertaining.

Fabulous mountain views.

Alongside its historic beauty, the owners have carefully blended state-of-the-art design and modern comfort to create a sensational property, ready for a new chapter.

An unusual highlight is the property’s four-car garage. This is simply not something that comes along every day.

A home of this era is bound to be overflowing with exquisite period details, and this one is no slouch in that department.

Jerome pointed to the high ceilings, mantelpieces, original cornices, hardwood floors and curved hallway arch that no doubt influences those curves in the kitchen.

Kitchen curves.

Space for a big family.

He said the glasswork in the front door was designed by the property’s previous owner.

“There are images of St George’s Anglican Church and the picturesque cottages of the area embedded in the glass,” Jerome said.

Entry into the home is via a covered veranda.

There are bedrooms to the left and right, plus the main bathroom with its picture-perfect claw-foot bath.

Take the stairs upwards to discover two bedrooms or an enviable top-floor office or study space. These attic-style bedrooms feature dormer windows with attractive views of the picturesque surrounds.

The lower level is home to another bathroom — this time with a corner spa — plus the large garage, storage, a laundry and another bedroom. This bedroom has its own unique view of the river through a bedroom window and through a cut-out garage window.

A blend of modern and historic styles.

Take a nap.

Some older homes struggle with modern-day warmth and light expectations, but this is not one of them, because natural light flows throughout the grand property.

And the addition of a new Fujitsu heat pump will have the next owner prepared for the cooler months.

Outside, the landscaped garden are lovely to look at and easy to maintain. The yard features paved pathways and raised black bark garden beds. There is also a pretty pergola.

Historically, Battery Point was a hub of working-class life, with many seafarers’ cottages and hotels in the neighbourhood.

However, these days it is the Apple Isle’s premier suburb and the only one with a median price of more than $1 million — at least for now.

Its proximity to all that Sandy Bay, Salamanca and the Hobart waterfront and city have to offer makes this suburb highly appealing to buyers.

Welcome. Come on in.

Take a load off.

The chance to buy in St Georges Terrace is rare. According to realestate.com.au, only one house and one apartment have been sold here in the past year.

In the week of September 5-12, No.10 St Georges Terrace, Battery Point, was the most-viewed Tassie home on realestate.com.au. It is listed with Harcourts Signature and will be sold by expressions of interest.
