11 Hooper Crescent, Mount Stuart
Sustainable rental home for the modern family!
It's not often that a home of such possibility comes up for rent.
Not only can you be pretty much self sufficient with the amazing above ground gardens, and outside living area, but the home is set up with Tesla Powerwall & solar panels which include a Tesla power wall app to monitor solar, batter and grid usage. Your power bill will be virtually non-existent! There is also an electric car charging plug in the driveway.
We are looking for a family who will appreciate the great lay out of this large family home and who want to take advantage of the sustainable lifestyle it can provide.
Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac with sweeping views of the City, River, South Arm, Mount Nelson and Knocklofty Reserve this substantial modern family home will take your breath away.
The location is perfect. Within walking distance of city conveniences, the delights of North Hobart and Hill Street, top schools and the wilds of Knocklofty Reserve. All this, while still being ever so peaceful and private.
The home itself is a modern, double brick with an iron roof and concrete floors and is very well maintained. The insulated ceilings and thick curtains help keep the temperature exactly where you want it.
Over two levels the home offers a flexible layout that will suit many families.
When you walk into the living room area you are totally blown away by the amazing floor to ceiling views that are visible along the entire front of the room. This large space is basically an huge open plan area consisting of the living room, dining area and kitchen. There are so many ways you could set it up that will enable you to take advantage of this great space. The area is heated by a gas fire, plus ducted heating with a WiFi option so the house can be warm in time for you to come home of an evening. There is mains gas and a gas stove top, plus instant gas hot water! Perfect for these cold morning!
The master bedroom is huge, with BIRs and a heat transfer system from lounge.
The second bedroom is off to the right as you come through the front door and is smaller, but still spacious.
Out the back you will find a great little room with direct external access - this could work well as an office or project room to keep the mess contained! The previous tenants used it to can and store fruit and vegetables.
The bathroom is small but modern.
Laundry and storage area - the storage area is directly opposite the kitchen entrance and would work well as an overflow storage/pantry.
Fully insulated with R5 bats; combined with double brick walls and concrete floors create a perfect combination, ideal for passive solar energy storage and release.
Family room or large bedroom with more storage that is heated by a combustion wood fire. A sliding door and deck take full advantage of the views and allow direct access so great for visitors/teenagers.
Two further large bedrooms both with built ins.
Modern Bathroom with bath.
Off street parking for three cars with plenty of room to turn a vehicle.
There are three lockable storage pods.
Instantaneous mains gas hot water system
An amazing established garden that will basically allow you to be self sufficient when it comes to your vegetable needs. The vegetable patches have built in compost worm towers in each patch and the entire yard is covered by a sprinkler system. You are spoilt for choice with the variety of fruit trees: Blueberries & raspberries, citrus trees, asparagus and rhubarb are already established. The property owners would be more than happy to see the tenants expand the garden and add more trees & plants if they liked. There is also an established compost area that is ready to go!
There is an area suitable for chickens - just need to install a coop and some fencing. The resident chickens moved out when the owners moved to their new property.
There is also the opportunity to install a bee-hive - the current hive also moved when the owners did - the property, including the footpath area, is on a no-spray register. The base where the hive was is still in place.
A beautiful pond populated by frogs.
Deck & outdoor entertain area that is both private and spacious.
Mount Stuart is a highly sort out area and properties of this standard with amazing panoramic city views and so many options for sustainable green living aren't often available. The opportunity to live in a friendly, community minded neighbours in street like Hooper Crescent where fruit & vegetables often swapped is definitely a major bonus!
