This home is essentially two properties, providing both cosy, traditional charm and cutting-edge style. A 1890s weatherboard cottage sits at the top of the block, linked by an elevated walkway to an industrial-modern waterfront addition.
The front section of the property reflects the history of Battery Point, the formal sandstone edged garden with an outlook from the verandah of the Georgian weatherboard cottage. Inside, a renovation enhances the original features of the cottage, with floorboards, neutral tones and contemporary additions.
At the front is a double bedroom with en suite, over the hall way is a sitting room, which could also be used as another bedroom. A kitchenette overlooks the living area with gas heater, makes this perfect for guest accommodation or living space with extra privacy.
Downstairs in the second bedroom clean white lines contrast with a sandstone feature wall highlighted and polished concrete offset by timber trim. An ensuite is subtly hidden from view.
From the cottage living area, a soundproof door opens into the elevated walkway and leads you into an entirely different space. Industrial concrete walls tempered by warm panels of Celery Top Pine. From the living area the view opens up to reveal the home’s position on the edge of the River Derwent.
Wooden framed glass doors pivot open to extend the living area out to the polished concrete deck with open fire and expansive views.
The includes Miele coffee machine and Zug steam oven, oven and stovetop, are built into timber cabinetry, while behind a sliding door is a large butler’s pantry, dishwasher and pantry.
The master suite has a freestanding outdoor bath on a secluded deck overlooking the river which is accessed through doors from both the shower and the bedroom.
Downstairs is a 15-metre heated pool and large living area, opening out to a deck overlooking the garden and river. Outside, the garden is terraced to the waterfront, landscaped with low maintenance plants, trees and grasses.
Completely separate from the main house is the secluded studio on the first floor, perched over the river’s edge.
