Description of our house
Our home overlooks beautiful North West Bay, in a very peaceful, safe, semi-rural area only 15 minutes south of Tasmania's capital city Hobart. It has been tastefully renovated to retain it's original charm. Comfortable & clean it is kept warm & cosy in the winter months with underfloor heating, a woodfire & reverse cycle airconditioning. In summer there are also cooling breezes from the bay. In the loungeroom we have a 42inch flat screen digital TV which is connected to our Bose stereo system. Both bedrooms have queen size beds & are carpeted. The bathroom has a large spa bath & separate shower where you can relax with your favourite music(ceiling speaker). The fully equipped kitchen has granite bench tops, big refrigerator with separate freezer, large gas hotplates, European oven & dishwasher. Timber decking extends along the front & side of the house, an ideal place to sit & watch life on the bay with its abundant bird life, boating & occasional dolphins. There is also a sunroom that looks out onto the large established back garden with it's trees & plants attracting many different birds. Our homes are not set up for children.
