TRAFFIC was whizzing down London Street, but as I walked inside this rear strata property a blissful serenity descended.
Nothing disturbed the peace, except for the clicking of high heels on the Tasmanian oak floors.
The formal lounge is bathed in light and has french doors that open onto a small courtyard, shaded by a huge tree.
This lounge is cosy and has a 19th century-style cast-iron fire that is gas-powered and provides instant warmth at the push of a button.
A soaring cathedral ceiling with timber beams adds to the sense of space and light in the dining/living area.
And the compact kitchen is stream-lined for ease of use, with plenty of storage including a stand-in-pantry.
French doors off the living area lead to a covered alfresco space that has a built-in preparation area and sink.
Gardeners will love the raised garden beds, which are are just itching for some green fingers to bring them to life.
The second level is where you’ll find the three bedrooms, including the spacious main which has built-in-robes and an en suite with deep bath and separate shower.
French doors lead to a balcony sheltered by the greenery of a couple of trees.
Close to the Mt Hawthorn cafe strip, Hobart Street Deli and Oxford Street, this home is near to all the action but feels peaceful and quiet.
