Relax in the large, sunny living room, taking in the view through the extensive windows. Glass sliding doors lead out onto the huge deck where you can chill out on a banana lounge and watch the constantly changing activity on the river.

A large reverse cycle air conditioner keeps the house cool in summer and warm in winter. There are panel heaters in the kitchen and each of the bedrooms and heated floors in all bathrooms.
Sandy Bay is one of Hobart's premier suburbs. It follows the River Derwent, from the outskirts of Hobart city, south, as far as Taroona (made famous by Princess Mary of Denmark). Sandy Bay is the home of the University of Tasmania and Wrest Point Casino and is only a few minutes drive from Hobart CBD. Properties in this area often have magnificent views of the River Derwent.
The suburb has its own shopping village where you will find a Coles and Woolworths as well as a selection of smaller shops, including a great butcher and bakery. All the major banks have branches in the village and there is also a post office. There are a selection of excellent cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from. These are all an easy drive from the house. Sandy Bay also has a lovely beach with an esplanade, park area with BBQs, children's play equipment and Wood Fired Pizza.
As House On The Hill is located 5km from the city centre we would highly recommend that you have a car when staying here.
However there is a regular bus service connecting Sandy Bay to the city, which passes the end of the driveway to the house.
