Classic Charm with Modern Conveniences 65 Stanley Street, OATLANDS TAS 7120
This beautifully renovated, late 1800s cottage is filled with charm and character including Sandstone fireplaces, Baltic Pine feature wall, old floorboards burnished to a dark hue, high ceilings, and much more. The owners have added modern conveniences and opened up the living areas while retaining the rustic feel of the home.
A later extension to the house is now a large bedroom with sitting area and its own fireplace; a home office (with fixed bookcase/storage); and a powder room. The other bedrooms still have the lovely, Sandstone fireplaces with Huon Pine mantles and built-in robes have been added.
One of the bedrooms in the original cottage has been opened up to enlarge the kitchen which now has a walk-in pantry; gas cooker; dishwasher; Butler’s sink; and wide island bench with lots of storage. There is also a Rayburn slow-combustion stove which has a water jacket providing hot water to the bathroom and kitchen while you are cooking! An electric hot water cylinder is there for the summer months.
The house sits on approx. 840m2 of easy-care land with a wide driveway leading to a new double garage (concrete floor, power connected and remote access roller doors) and a well-fenced, very private backyard. There is a long, timber deck at the front with original iron filigree. The village is an easy walk away with School, Medical Centre, IGA Supermarket, shops, cafes, etc. Hobart is around an hours drive.
