Como is a unique, prestigious waterfront property steeped in Tasmanian History having once entertained Prime Ministers, Overseas Sporting heroes, a safe refuge for overseas identities and the fascinating story continues. Como is situated on the extreme tip of Cherry Point on the Tamar River and faces the Batman Bridge. The original weatherboard home boasts intricate ornate fixtures, blended subtly with modern conveniences all taking you back in time to a slower more serene style of living. The formal dining room, sitting rooms and two of the bedrooms all have open fire places, re-creating yester-year perfectly. The well equipped kitchen overlooks Drumstick Islet and the 2 bathrooms combine the past and present tastefully while a separate double garage and workshop provides vehicle security. The entertaining courtyard absorbs the panoramic water views and stunning colorful gardens are a haven for native birdlife. The property has 3 titles and has the potential to possibly sub-divide (STCA) if that option was preferred. You can stroll around the water's edge on the walkway to the registered deep mooring, essential for the boating enthusiasts, then continue on to Bonny Beach or visit the site of the old boat house and remains of the once well-used jetty. With a flexible floor plan and a setting to die for, this grand old lady could be further transformed into arguably one of the homes in Tasmania. An inspection is a must to truly absorb the total property.
