Every so often, a property comes to market that is unlike anything else that has sold in recent times; something that presents a unique opportunity.
This month, Devine Property has the privilege of bringing to the market 17 William Street in West Hobart. The street bears the name of Frederick William Corby, the original owner of the land, and runs between two of West Hobart’s most popular streets. William Street is filled with charming cottages all within a 10 minute walk of the centre of the city.
Records show that the property was built circa 1900, however it is thought to have been built in the late 1800s. Although the property itself is a far cry from the home it once was, there is no mistaking its charm and appeal. What it presents is an opportunity like no other for those with the imagination and willingness to take on a project. Homes such as these are rarely available in West Hobart.
The property sits on a small parcel of land (just under 200 square meters) and overlooks the City of Hobart, towards the Derwent River. The location offers all the best elements of the West Hobart lifestyle and what has made the suburb so popular in recent times: Pigeon Hole Café, Hill Street Grocer and the well regarded primary schools of Lansdowne Crescent and Goulburn Street are all within a short walk.
While auctions in Hobart are a rare occurrence, the property is scheduled to be sold under the hammer on August 29, and is sure to attract an enormous amount of interest across different buyer segments.
