Hobart might not be the first place you think of when considering the grandest homes old-world homes in the country, but ‘Minallo’ might just change your opinion. Located at 22A Pine Street, West Hobart, and originally constructed in 1891, ‘Minallo’ underwent a significant restoration in 2017 and now stands tall, returned to its former glory as one of the finest homes in the Tasmanian capital.

The remarkable property enjoys a sizeable 1,726m² block, with picturesque views out over Hobart CBD and the River Derwent. As you’d expect from a home of such stature, the gardens are meticulously maintained and the residence is appropriately secluded, tucked away out of sight down the gravel drive and invisible from the street.

Beyond the sheer scale of the four bedroom, two bathroom home, the period correct details of the architectural design have been maintained and celebrated by the designers most recently commissioned to restore the property. It’s safe to say the team at JAWS Architects have done a stellar job at 22A Pine Street, West Hobart, bringing details to life such as the original tessellated tile flooring, the beautiful ceiling roses, and stain-glass windows.

Apon arrival through the entry foyer, the next space you find yourself in is the palatial open-plan living and dining rooms, with the kitchen (complete with a charming island bench) and pantry flanking the room. The ground floor also boasts the previously mentioned back deck and joined patio, as well as a sun room that would serve as the perfect spot to enjoy a good book and a stiff drink.

It’s upstairs where you’ll find the rest of the light-filled bedrooms, as well as an additional room that is currently set up as a comfortably proportioned home office. You won’t find the voguish walk-in-robes or his-and-hers ensuite bathrooms, with the architects maintaining much of the original floor plan, while making the most of the space.

It’s a truly remarkable home, and one that is currently seeking its next custodian. The sale of 22A Pine Street, West Hobart, is being managed by the team at St Andrews Estate Agents with a price guide of $3.5 million.
