As with many homes in this area, this spectacular period home has a beautiful history and a lovely story to tell. Built in 1895, the current owners tell me that 18 Hiller Street was Devonport’s very first pharmacy. There is a small room at the front of the house lined with gorgeous Baltic pine and with a beautiful stained glass window, which is where the pharmacist dispensed his medicine from.
And when it comes to period features… this home will not disappoint. The formal lounge room at the front of the house is packed with spectacular features… including a wall of Tasmanian Oak with the original fire place plus large Baltic Pine windows and skirting boards. Underfoot are polished Tasmanian Oak floorboards and no matter where you look you will see a stunning feature. Overhead are ornate features, high ceilings and picture rails.
The 3 bedrooms are large as you would expect in a home such as this and the main bedroom has a large built-in robe and gorgeous original fireplace also. The bathroom has had a makeover and whilst not large it is certainly very functional. At the rear of the home you will find a neat little timber kitchen with pantry plus the second living/dining space. This room opens out onto the most fabulous undercover alfresco dining area and a garden that you can’t help but fall in love with.
Stunning plants, a pond, gorgeous paths, a large 6m x 3m shed and of course the single car garage that has a door to access the back yard. Wisteria is winding around the top of the alfresco dining area and I can only imagine how stunning this will look in full bloom.
Hiller Street is a very sought after area of Devonport being just a short stroll to the CBD. Here you will find a multitude of cafes, restaurants and plenty of lovely boutiques and shops. Also within walking distance you will find two Primary Schools and two High Schools.
As with most properties in this area this one won’t last long… so call the listing agent Wendy Squibb to arrange your inspection.
