'Olney House' at 7 Scott Street in the Glebe is on the market for the first time in 20 years. Built around 1885 'Olney House' was nostalgically named by the original owner and builder Reverend John Simmonds' after his hometown of Olney near London. The home exudes high Victorian class and character. It has been meticulously restored maintaining its original period features while providing contemporary comfort.
Entering 'Olney' you are immediately struck by its grandeur. The home comprises a generous 300m2 of living space across two-storeys. The ground floor provides a flexible layout with mixed options for formal living and dining rooms, study and/or bedrooms. The Baltic Pine floorboards provide an elegant passage from room to room. The kitchen features Tasmanian Oak cabinetry with a practical and large open space and commanding vistas of the Hobart CBD and Mount Wellington.
On the second level of the home the master suite features a walk-in robe and ensuite. From the privacy of the bath, soak in a picture frame view of Mount Wellington. The second upstairs bedroom is also substantial in size with a dual access ensuite to match. Also on this level is a sun-filled north facing study, again with panoramic mountain views. This space with its warm and rich beige carpet and lively ambience might otherwise be utilised as a bedroom or living area.
One of the most impressive features of Olney House is its capacity to entertain. Local thunderstone is utilised at the rear of the home for the outdoor entertaining area, soaking up all day sun with access by French doors from the main living/dining area. 'Olney House' on a generous 838m2 block with a delightful garden will satisfy the greenest of thumbs. Your impressed visitors will find ample off-street parking on both sides of the home, and a lockup undercover garage.
The opulent home is complemented by a convenient city lifestyle, only footsteps to the Hobart CBD and walking distance from both Salamanca and the ever-growing North Hobart cafe and restaurant strip. This home is a rare offering, paying homage to Victorian grandeur and but at the same time satisfying the demands of modern living.
