Offered for the first time in 40 years, 1 Osborne Esplanade, Kingston Beach is as prime a beach front property as you can get! And not only beach front, river front as well, and mountain views to boot!
Built in 1900, this home is full of original character features and charm. Think high ceilings, fireplaces with mantle pieces, picture rails, deep skirting boards, the treasure of original floor boards under the carpets, fully enclosed verandah / sunroom, all built on solid sandstone foundations.
The formal entry has the original front door with glass highlight surrounds and leads through to the long passage with high ceilings running down the centre of the home, so typical of this era.
To the right and set at the front corner of the home is a simply gorgeous sunroom with its original waterglass windows and stained glass highlights, looking straight out at Kingston Beach and Browns River to the side. A suntrap ready to spend hours in!
To the left is the formal lounge . a grand space with large bay windows, high ceilings an original ornate timber mantle piece. This leads through to the dining room (or really, whatever you would want to use it for) which also has a Fire Place with timber mantle, and a servery hutch through to the kitchen / family room.
The kitchen family room is extra large and whilst it could do with updating it is still very functional. Lots of cupboards space, lots of windows looking out over the gardens, lots of potential .. and all heated by a Daikin Heat Pump.
The home has 3 bedrooms, 2 of which are in the main house, and one in the separate but connected studio. The 2 bedrooms in the house are extra large and have generous built-in wardrobes, and uniquely, very useful vanity units with hot and cold water.
There are two bathrooms, one in the main house and one in the studio. The one in the main house is spacious, with a separate WC adjacent.
Worth mentioning, is that the house is wired with numerous off peak power points, and is connected to the NBN.
The studio, just located out the back door, has one bedroom, the 2nd bathroom and the laundry.
The house is located on a large 1072 sqm prominent Kingston beach corner block, and as already mentioned, wrapped in water and beach views.
There is a large and very well maintained garage with a mezzanine storage area and plenty of room for a workshop space, and then a large storage shed / room leading off it.
The landscaped gardens have been very well kept with a private rear lawned courtyard space, complete with a fountain, lovely shaded areas and stone paths.
There is simply so much on offer in this highly sought after and convenient location, apart from the fabulous beach frontage, there is Browns River across the street for kayaking and fishing, excellent walking trails start at your doorstep, within walking distance of local cafes, restaurants, parks, and local schools, shops and the Kingston CBD a few minutes away. And less than 20 mins drive to centre of the city of Hobart.
Opportunity to simply live in, as is, opportunity to renovate and restore to its former glory, opportunity (STCA) to possibly develop / build an ancillary dwelling, opportunity for AirBNB . The opportunities are only limited by your imagination.
Houses like this don't come to market very often. If you are after something unique, a sea change, a home in a perfect location, then now is your chance!
