Known locally as the White House, 14 Formby Road, Devonport stands tall and offers a prominent north facing location along Formby Road, along with water views, the coming and going of the Spirit of Tasmania and the city vista of Devonport.
This property offers the perfect opportunity to acquire a rare and versatile property subject to two zones; Commercial and General Residential. The 1859m2 allotment has been naturally divided with the two-storey dwelling, the large shed (12mx7m) and the vacant section backing onto Wenvoe Street with possibility of subdivision (STCA). Endless opportunities, with the dwelling situated in the COMMERCIAL zone, and the vacant section at the rear zoned General RESIDENTIAL.
Originally built around 1900 as a manor home, after the first World War the building served as a local maternity hospital. In 1962 the property was extended and converted into flats and painted white – since then it has been referred to as the White House. Devonport is certainly the area to establish and grow accommodation, with the Spirit of Tasmania directly across the river and the Devonport Airport only 8km away (approx).
The eclectic mix of Circa 1900, the Retro 1962 and the latest upgrades by current owners offers many surprises but functionality has been a priority especially the heating. Two natural gas fired boilers, heat nineteen panels throughout the house – this system can be finetuned for each section of the room to maximise efficiency. There is still room for the new owner to renovate as it has not been fully restored.
Utilise as a full home the choice is yours, but if you would like to go down the accommodation path - it is set up ready to go. The house is divided by a timber staircase with one side being dedicated for accommodation purposes and the other being a residence for the current owners.
On the LEFT we are presented with two fully self-contained two-bedroom holiday apartments, one upstairs and one downstairs. Each apartment has its own private kitchen and bathroom and sleeps up to 6 people. Upstairs Apartment TWO; offers great views through the front bedroom bay windows while downstairs Apartment ONE offers great views with its own 3-metre-wide high definition movie cinema. On the RIGHT the owners have utilised the spaces – I have a floor plan for interest parties.
Devonport, Tasmania is a stunning coastal city, with excellent facilities within a 10 minutes (approx) to the Devonport Airport and the Spirit of Tasmania Port directly across the river.
