Charming villa with separate guest cottage

Located in one of Devonport's most cherished neighbourhoods, this charming and character-filled three bedroom villa boasts the immense benefits of a separate, very stylish one-bedroom guest cottage on-site. This rare to find set-up gives you four bedrooms in total and could be a marriage saver if you regularly have the in-laws to stay!

Originally crafted around 1910, the home is rich with local heritage and charm such as exceptionally high ceilings, sash windows and timber floors which have been complemented and enhanced with fresh, contemporary interior finishes. And the not-so-visible hard work has been done too, with new roof, fully painted inside and out, re-wiring and best of all, central heating throughout the home.

There are three bedrooms off the entrance hall - one has an ensuite while the master opens out to the sun-splashed balcony. The generous main bathroom has a large shower and claw-foot bathtub. The rear of the original home has been extended to create a light-filled, open plan kitchen, dining and living room - featuring a gas fireplace with pressed tin surrounds that's a functional work of art. French doors open out to the rear patios, enveloped in feature brick work, and sizable garden with purpose-built spa pool platform.

The completely separate, very spacious legal sleep-out (guest cottage) has its own living area, bedroom and designer bathroom (that's four bedrooms and three bathrooms in total) and has been finished to a very high standard and presents excellent guest accommodation whether short or long term - perfect for extended family, a very lucky au pair or teenager.

You will love the incredible sense of community within Stanley Bay - it's a truly magical place to raise a family. Stanley Bay School is just footsteps down the street and doubles as a place to play and run wild, while the local wharf is an easy stroll away and offers a 15-minute ferry trip to the CBD.
