The Mercury Real Estate Guide : January 3rd 2013
MERCURY Thursday, January 3, 2013 --- 3 DODGES FERRY, 27 Parnella Rd The most enticing family home There would not be many children who would pass up the chance to live in a house with an internal slide Offers $860,000+ Rendered house with Colorbond roof. House/land: 328sq m/1242sq m Petrusma Property Refer: Suzanne Eaton and Jason Cleary 6247 7877 Open home: 5pm-6pm tomorrow, 10.30am-11am Saturday realestate.com.au ID: 112040523 434 COULD this be Hobart's most exciting family home? There would not be many children -- or the young at heart -- who would pass up the chance to live in a house with an internal slide. Starting in one of the children's bedrooms, the sure-fire favourite feature travels down through the centre of the home and finishes in the rumpus room. This is not to say the house is purely for children -- the adults will find many enticing features also. The seaside property is more than just a home; it comes with an entire lifestyle. It's the kind of lifestyle that allows you to swim, surf or sunbathe on one of the two beaches which are practically in your backyard. North-facing and positioned to capture 180-degree views, the Dodges Ferry house takes in views out to Spectacle Island, Red Ochre and Seven Mile Beach, right over to Mt Wellington. The deluxe kitchen contains stainless steel appliances, including a self-cleaning oven. Great for social occasions, it includes a bi-fold window and triple sliding doors out to the partially covered entertaining deck, where you can take in the stunning views while hosting a dinner party. Directly downstairs is the lounge room, with plumbing in place for a bar area. It has a bi-fold window and triple sliding doors leading out to the undercover barbecue area. All four bedrooms are double in size and have their own private access to the deck. While the master bedroom has a huge walk-in wardrobe and opulent ensuite, it contains another level of luxury in the form of a separate custom-made bath by the window of the bedroom. There are two more bathrooms, plus a separate powder room for guests, as well as a study nook and laundry with plenty of storage. Other quality features include double-glazed windows, ducted heating and bamboo flooring throughout. An alarm system keeps the house safe and the external shower is ideal for washing the sand off after a trip to the beach. A gateway from the yard gives access to the walkway leading around to the peninsular or boatsheds at Red Ochre. The internal workshop off the double garage completes the huge house. Less than 40 minutes from Hobart, this waterside home is less than one year old. House of the week
