873 East Derwent Highway
Risdon 7017

Nestled amongst the gumtrees and overlooking the water, this charming acreage home is uniquely positioned within Risdon Cove.

Unique in so many ways, this property is not one to be missed. It now provides an opportunity for very fortunate new owners to live in privacy on almost two hectares of land, in a family home that’s bustling with character from a bygone era. The layout is versatile and would easily allow for additional bedrooms. Ready for some TLC, roll up your sleeves!

You can truly experience the best of both worlds, with a serene rural lifestyle that’s only a 10-minute journey from the vibrant capital city of Hobart. Set in a strategic location, just 5 minutes from Glenorchy, this home offers convenience for easy, everyday family living.

Standing the test of time for generations, this home has been the heart of a family, and it is a testament to the quality of Tasmanian timbers and construction methods used during the earlier part of the last century. Peel back the carpets to reveal hardwood timber floors. Modern upgrades include two near-new reverse cycle heating and cooling systems, an insulated ceiling, a rewiring of the home, as well as a brand new kitchen.

The abundance of native flora and fauna creates a soothing symphony of nature, a reminder that you’re surrounded by life’s simple pleasures. You can gaze out over the water through the native trees to the Bowen Bridge, with not another neighbouring home in sight. Around the front and sides of the home you can enjoy the wraparound deck, part of which has been semi-covered to create a space somewhat protected from the elements. There’s also a lovely courtyard at the rear that would serve as additional space for gatherings and so much more.

Beneath the home there’s a huge subfloor area that’s ideal for storage, a home workshop and/or studio rooms. These rooms had been utilised for arts and crafts in the past, with the owners having a keen interest in pottery. At the front of the home, you can find the carport as well as ample parking space. By the front of the property you can find a Metro bus stop which makes transport even easier, especially for the kids.

Roll up your sleeves, this home is ready for some TLC.
