The grand residence at 25 Fitzroy Place is a uniquely beautiful home, combining timeless elegance with a classic style, all with the most modern of conveniences.
A dual-access driveway leads from Fitzroy Place, under the towering plane trees, to automatic wrought-iron gates set among sandstone pillars. Formal box hedge, flourishing roses and a water feature provide a majestic entrance.
Inside the foyer, the home?s scale and elegance is revealed, with high ceilings, polished dark wood of the timber staircase, and graceful chandelier. The white palette provides a modern edge to the classic original features.
To the right of the foyer is a den, a handsome room looking over the street through a bay window. Gold and white striped wallpaper contrasts with wood paneled walls and fire place. Next door, double doors lead from the foyer to the formal lounge; the ornate fire place and crimson drapes in the bay windows emphasizing the sophistication of this home.
Further up the hall, the casual living and kitchen open to a manicured courtyard, bi fold doors providing a seamless transition to the north-facing outdoor space. Floor-to-ceiling curtains in the dining area emphasise the space and light of the high ceilings and cool colours, with polished boards contrasting with over-sized tiles that step up to the kitchen. The dark stone benchtop pairs with the dramatic red splash back, and a wall of cabinetry provides plenty of functional storage in this stylish space.
On the other side of the house, a huge summer lounge has double doors into the west-facing courtyard, as does the downstairs bedroom. A separate laundry and bathroom complete the ground floor.
Upstairs, six bedrooms and a sitting room lead off a central corridor. Each of these rooms has its own character, from sloping ceilings, polished original boards and skylights. Three bedrooms have their own en suite while two more share a private bathroom. The sitting room has a private balcony looking over the courtyard.
At the front of the house the ornate wallpaper and chandelier in the master suite create a truly luxurious room. Two walls are lined with built-robes, while a subtle ensuite sits in the corner. A second bedroom has access only from the master bedroom, with a private balcony looking over the verdant plane trees lining Fitzroy Place.
The 566 sqm block is in an enviable position in sought-after Fitzroy Place is within walking distance of the Hobart CBD, and a short distance to Salamanca, nearby schools and the university.
