Historic Elegance Meets Modern Sophistication in South Hobart

296 Davey Street South Hobart

5 bed | 4 bath | 5 car
Nestled within luxuriant surrounds and historic homesteads of South Hobart while capturing majestic views of Kunanyi/Mount Wellington sits an iconic, stately residence of grand proportions that is truly in a class of its own.

Constructed in 1911 by famous Tasmanian Sir Henry Jones as a wedding gift for his daughter Amelia, the property seamlessly blends old-world opulence with contemporary living. Steeped in history, the residence was once the childhood home of Hollywood actor Errol Flynn. Classic, restored features meld with architecturally designed additions, implemented to retain the utmost integrity.

Original characteristics remain, with superb stained-glass windows, ornate fireplaces, fretwork, archways, soaring ceilings, and a central intricately crafted timber staircase. These, and many other features meld with modern fittings and fixtures of the highest standard, with no expense spared to allow attributes of both centuries to shine through.

The living space incorporates dining, and the state-of-the-art kitchen boasts premium European appliances, a walk-through pantry, abundant storage, and a stylish sliding frosted glass splashback. The ultimate entertaining house with climate-controlled cellar and independent cooling system is within easy reach.

The residence is an outstanding family home, with 5 generous bedrooms, 4 bathrooms the master and 2nd bedroom with ensuite. The outdoor entertaining area is perfect for hosting family and friends within the secluded garden oasis with established trees, manicured hedges and extensive decking with bench seating.
Within close proximity to prestigious schooling, and UTAS, along with cafes, restaurants, and amenities of the South Hobart district, and within walking distance of Hobart's CBD.
