Tolmans Hill: Sophistication and opulence with no expense spared
IN a prized position overlooking the city and River Derwent, this Tolmans Hill home is arguably the most impressive house on the market.
Homeowners Abraham and Denise built it seven years ago, but it has the chic and stylish contemporary appeal of a home just finished yesterday.
While homely and inviting, it is also large and picture-perfect, with not one detail slipping under the radar.
Property representative at Charlotte Peterswald for Property, Jess Hansen, said the quality and thought that went into the design and construction of this home was impressive.
“It is evident as soon as you walk through the front door with the curvature of the home and extensive use of floor-to-ceiling double-glazing,” she said.
“Among the many standout features, the 180-degree river views are hard to overstate — they are simply stunning.”
This spectacular residence is set on more than 1100sqm in an elevated position with panoramic, uninterrupted 180-degree views of the River Derwent, Hobart and its surrounds.
Denise said the view from their
top-floor kitchen and living zone was “one of the best around”.
“Every day is different,” she said.
“Sometimes there is an orange sky, others it’s the beautiful reflections on the water or a pretty red sunrise.
“Sometimes it is tricky to take a picture that does it justice, but that is not a bad challenge to have!”
Denise said their home had “suited them to a T”, but they had made the decision to sell so they could move closer to their family.
She said the ideal buyer could be a family with teenagers, a professional couple, someone looking for plenty of space, or those who like to entertain.
The house was designed by Marco Linardi and built to the highest of standards, with top-quality fixtures and fittings throughout.
No.12 Woodcutters Road makes an impression before you arrive at the front door with its bold, curving design and its enviable location.
An early highlight awaits just beyond the front door with a lavish spiral staircase sweeping upwards to the generously proportioned open-plan living and dining areas on the upper level. It is a showstopping feature.
On the lower level to the right there are two bedrooms, a bathroom and a family room or a third sleeping quarters.
A terrace wraps around the bedrooms.
This area has the potential to become self-contained and would suit a number of living situations.
To the left of the stairs there is a huge garage with abundant storage, and a shaft for a lift should the next owner wish to install one.
Upstairs, there is a substantial deck that runs the entire length of the home.
It can be accessed via the living room at one end, and from the master bedroom at the other.
The master suite is all about total luxury. It is large, spacious and features a
walk-in wardrobe that runs the length of the room. There is also a huge ensuite with a bath, shower, ceiling-high tiles and under-floor heating.
The placement of a separate study or office by the master is a nice addition.
For entertainers, the home’s superb kitchen will be a dream.
It has got it all, from stone benchtops to soft-closing drawers and stainless-steel European appliances. There is even a pop-up power point in the bench, which Denise said was handy and that she “uses it all of the time”.
To best capture the incredible views, floor-to-ceiling double-glazing in commercial-grade frames was installed throughout the home.
It is perhaps best on show throughout the kitchen, dining and living room, where the tall trees and the city and river below are beautifully framed.
They also allow an abundance of natural light into the home.
At the rear of the house there is a low-maintenance courtyard, which leads to the expansive native gardens and flower beds that surround the home.
No.12 Woodcutters Road, Tolmans Hill is listed with Peterswald for Property and will be sold by expressions of interest over $1.295 million.
