THE secret of Howden and its wonderful lifestyle is out — and with homes like this one it is little wonder why.
Set on 2ha of spacious, private land, this property combines impressive architecture with open plan living spaces, family-friendly rooms, stylish fittings and entertainment options galore.
This magnificent Howden home has something for everyone.
Built in 2017, this eye-catching, pristine property has the feel of a new, never lived in home.
Harcourts Signature New Town property representative Nick Cowley said potential buyers love the peace and quiet that’s on offer here.
“Most definitely it is the serenity, the contemporary design, rural aspect and the proximity to the Hobart CBD and the beautiful Huon Valley — there is a lot to like,” he said.
“We have had a wide range of potential purchasers inquire about the property, from those looking to escape high density city living to tradies who spotted the amazing 160sqm shed.
“There have been multiple interstate buyers making inquiries.”
The four bedroom home sits amid hectares of green paddocks and pretty bushland adjacent to the Peter Murell State Reserve and the Huntingfield Pony Club.
“Howden is an extremely popular area due to the large and peaceful allotments,” Nick said.
“You completely forget you are just 15 minutes from the CBD when you are standing beside the properties dam saying hello to a wallaby.
“It really is an extraordinary part of our beautiful state.”
The home features oak floating floors with a dual zone 16kW ducted under floor heating, a Nectre woodfire, soundproof walls between the living and bedrooms and a jaw-dropping elevated ceiling in the kitchen and dining space.
The open plan living, kitchen, dining area is a showstopper. From the abundant natural light to the attractive blue feature wall and the gorgeous views — it is a place the owner will want to spend their time.
Spanish handcrafted tiles were used to create a unique splashback in the kitchen. It ties in perfectly with the blue tones throughout the house.
The kitchen has high end appliances, a butler’s pantry, stone benchtops and a breakfast bar.
Sliding doors offer easy access to the rear undercover deck, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor option for alfresco dining.
An enclosed lounge means there’s room for everyone to relax while the functional streamlined laundry can be found by the main bathroom.
The master bathroom is incredible with its contemporary tiles, a modern glass shower enclosure and freestanding bath.
Three of the four bedrooms offer large windows, built-in wardrobes with mirrored sliding doors and soft carpeted flooring.
The master suite, located on the opposite side of the home, is a luxurious parent’s retreat.
A gorgeous large window offers scenes of the surrounding native bushland that can be enjoyed from bed over a morning cup of fresh coffee.
An amazing walk-in wardrobe and impressive ensuite add to the appeal. There is a separate study or home office by the master also.
Outdoors, the undercover entertainment deck and fire pit area are a true highlight.
A cute cubbyhouse is ready and waiting for make believe magic.
The yard’s enormous shed has three-phase power, its own septic, a wood heater, shower and toilet.
The property is on town water, has a 6.7 energy rating, satellite NBN and while country in feel, it is in a garbage collection area.
Nick said a property of this calibre — in such a stunning natural location and sporting so many entertainment options and family-friendly features — was sure to appeal to a wide variety of potential buyers.
“This outstanding property offers a stylish and modern oasis with a friendly farm feel — truly the best of both worlds, and yours for the taking,” he said.
