Hobart and Launceston Property Updates
Tasmania continues to lead the country in many property indicators.
However, in comparison to some of the larger mainland markets, the premium price segment does – to some extent – remain ‘affordable’.
Historically, the highest ever residential sale was in 2011 for in excess of $8 million. During 2019 to date the highest has been for $3.7 million being a riverfront holding positioned between Wrest Point and the Royal Hobart Yacht Club at 358 Sandy Bay Road, Hobart.
Comprising a dual-level holding with five-bedrooms, three-bathrooms and a double carport. As would be expected its fully secured with an electronic gate and features its own jetty.
The talk of the town, however, is the construction of a family residence at Tinderbox, just south of Blackmans Bay. Corelogic has reported a construction cost of $17 million on realestate.com. Records show the land was purchased for just over $3 million. Comprising a riverfront holding over dual levels with a floor area in excess of 1200 square metres of living. Anyone for a small hotel?
Up north in Launceston a sale was settled at the start of the year for $3.25 million. This was located at 1 Brisbane Street virtually within the CBD and known as “Glenfruin”.
Promoted as a historic Italianate style home it is positioned overlooking City Park on a 1482 square metre lot. The house is built over three levels, and is a fully renovated 1880’s home with four-to-five bedrooms.
