Seaview is a renovated three bedroom federation home with an architecturally designed extension in central Hobart. In 2019 we set out to carefully restore Seaview. Our aim was to create a calm and luxurious space. Somewhere to relax and enjoy the views of the mountain, the city and the river. The house is spacious and surrounded by verandahs. It has stunning views of Mount Wellington, the city of Hobart and beyond to the Derwent River.
Seaview joins a classic federation home with a Japanese inspired architecturally designed extension to create a beautiful and generous space. The home has been thoughtfully styled throughout with a mix of antique and modern furniture to blend the federation home and Japanese inspired extension. It is a unique property.
There are three spacious bedrooms all with king sized beds, luxurious linen sheets, electric blankets and cosy doonas. Attached to the master bedroom is an ensuite with under floor heating.
The Japanese inspired extension features exposed Tasmanian timbers and curving celery top ceilings. It includes an open plan kitchen, living and dining area with a wood fire. It is surrounded by windows and wooden Japanese style verandahs. There is also a bathroom with both a shower and a bath, and a laundry. There is a fully functioning kitchen if you feel like cooking, including staples such as olive oil, salt, pepper, tea, coffee etc.
The extension is seamlessly joined to the original federation home. This part of the house has a wide central hallway, three spacious bedrooms and a moody lounge room, perfect for enjoying a Tasmanian whiskey. The federation half of the house is surrounded by bull nose verandahs and there are many quiet corners to curl up and enjoy a good book.
The entire home has ducted heating and cooling. There is also a wood fire. You are guaranteed to be cosy and warm.
Seaview is located on the edge of the Queens Domain, which is an extensive area of urban park and native bushland incorporating trails for runners, walkers and cyclists. It is a fifteen minute stroll from Seaview though the Queens Domain to The Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens.
