A HISTORIC home fit for a King, a waterfront property in a tightly held neighbourhood, and a city charmer with scope to renovate have topped the list of Tasmania’s most popular listings of the week.
Property lovers will already be aware of No.112 King Street, Sandy Bay, a beautiful home that showcases Federation features at the front, only to later reveal an exquisite, carefully considered extension at the rear.
Not only did this listing attract more eyes than any other Tasmanian home on realestate.com.au last week, it also ranked No.7 nationwide.
And why wouldn’t it? This property has got it all.
Built in 1910, the owners have highlighted the polished and plush property’s period features — a deep veranda, high ceilings, high skirting boards, picture rails, hardwood flooring, bay windows and original fireplaces — while also leaving no stone unturned in the creation of its sophisticated new living areas.
Modern inclusions range from under-floor heating to a feature gas heater, AEG kitchen appliances, double-glazing in the main living zone with stacking doors opening to an outdoor living area, stone benchtops, bespoke joinery and wool carpets.
Since hitting the market about three weeks ago, No.112 King Street has racked up a whopping 29,950 page views on realestate.com.au — more than a few of which were mine, if we are being honest!
The home is listed with St Andrews Estate Agents at “Offers over $1.7 million”.
The next most viewed Tassie listing was No.45 Hinsby Road, Taroona.

The 1930s home is set on 908sqm of land right on the River Derwent and with direct access to Hinsby Beach from its back yard.
No.45 Hinsby Road is listed with Petrusma Property and will be sold by expressions of interest closing on May 18.
Rounding out the top three properties was 378-380 Argyle Street, North Hobart, an early 1900s weatherboard property currently configured as two townhouses.
Each townhouse offers two bedrooms, a neat kitchen and “plenty of scope to upgrade and add value”.
They are also superbly positioned near the suburb’s restaurant strip and North Hobart Oval, while the delights of the Hobart CBD is just walking distance away.
No.378-380 Argyle Street is listed with Petrusma Property at “Offers over $590,000”.
