Kylakin on the Derwent River

666 Sandy Bay Road Sandy Bay Tasmania 7005

This luxury home ticks all the boxes for a dream holiday in Hobart. It is set
over 3 levels with versatile living spaces, unbelievably large sleeping
quarters and a fantastic open plan kitchen/dining/living room which takes
advantage of the sweeping views of the Derwent River estuary. The kitchen is
a chef's dream with gas hotplates, a dish-washer and plenty of bench space to
plate up some of Tasmania’s delicious and local fresh produce.

The house offers 2 large bedrooms, main with ensuite bathroom, a formal
sitting room as well as downstairs utility room and laundry. Most rooms lead
onto the panoramic deck that wraps around the house allowing you to watch the
yachts on the river - perfect for viewing the Sydney to Hobart fleet or
simply relaxing on the balcony. 

Please note Kylakin is not suitable for children under 8 years of age due to
the furnishings and artwork and more importantly, the house has very steep
window drops from the upper floor and steep stairs down to the laundry.

Enjoy a hit of tennis on your very own tennis court or follow the private
pathway to the waterfront below. The furnishing, art work and appliances all
complement the house beautifully inviting you to simply unpack, take your
shoes off, put your feet up and indulge in your Hobart stay.

Kylakin is only a short hop to the shops, the Royal Hobart yacht clubs and
restaurants of Sandy Bay. Only 4 km from the centre of the city and
Salamanca, you are only minutes from the shopping centre, galleries,
restaurants, cafes, bars and waterfront activities of Hobart. Your home away
from home is the perfect place to base yourself to discover the best of
southern Tasmania.
