Modernist retro gem makes a grand design statement
RETRO, cool, chic. It is rare to find such a wonderfully preserved example of Modernist architecture.
No.16 Wentworth Street in sought-after South Hobart has only been on the market once before.
This three-bedroom home is set back from the street and is accessed via a private driveway lined with greenery.
From every vantage point along the broad facade of this two-level home, views stretch out across Hobart.
The main level has double-sized bedrooms with built-in wardrobes.
The master also has in-built dressing tables and shelving.
Downstairs there is another large bedroom with built-ins and a compact ensuite.
A fourth room on the lower level could be used as a bedroom, but for years it has been a rumpus.
Bright and airy, the formal dining room offers plenty of space for a meal with the family, or as a place to entertain friends. This area is a showcase of superb original joinery, while in the lounge there are high ceilings and an original Chevron up-light fitting that is unique to the period.
The lounge opens to a balcony that further showcases the vista.
In the large kitchen there is enough bench and cupboard space to satisfy the domestic god or goddess.
Outside, the gardens feature an undercover area with a wood-fired barbecue, established fruit trees, herb gardens and an abundance of berries.
The double carport provides room for two vehicles. There is additional off-street parking along the lengthy driveway.
There is under-house storage accessible both internally and externally. There is also an expansive workshop.
