SET on 2507sq m of bliss, this contemporary family home fits the historic Richmond aesthetic while offering fabulous comfort and luxury.

No.14 Blair St, Richmond is described by Peterswald for property director Kim Morgan and property representative Jack Waller as a “remarkable residence”, impeccably converted from its barn existence to a home filled with style and grace.

Its cathedral-high ceilings, polished blackwood, and quality finishes combine to create a stellar example of refined elegance throughout.

Over the past week No.14 Blair has proven to be a hit with buyers.

Their interest on realestate.com.au not only pushed it to be the No.1 most viewed home in Tasmania, it also cracked the Top 9 on the national charts.

Mr Waller said the level of buyer interaction has certainly matched the online “buzz”.

“We’ve received a lot of inquiries and had 40 groups through our open homes last week,” he said.

“Perhaps surprisingly, the interest has been mainly from interstate buyers who are looking to make a change away from city life.

“The home’s unique design and village location have been praised by buyers.

“Those that have viewed the home have complimented the large, level block and the view of the vineyard beyond the rear boundary.”

Mr Waller said No.14 would appeal to families who are seeking a premium lifestyle property without the maintenance that comes with a home on acreage.

“Its position on the village edge is appealing, given that the town centre’s cafes and shops are within short walking distance,” he said.

“The striking design and 300sq m-plus floorplan are its best features.

“Each level has bedrooms, a bathroom and living spaces.

“The alfresco dining space has indoor-outdoor flow and great views.”

From the opulent foyer on the entrance level, the sumptuous open-plan living and dining area takes in a serene and light-filled ambience.

The gourmet kitchen has stone countertops, an extra-large central island bench, abundant storage space, top-of-the-range appliances, and an enviable butler’s pantry.

Sweeping views across the neighbouring Pooley’s Winery and vineyard are best enjoyed from the culinary space.

The accommodation is luxurious with two bedrooms on each level, each with built-in wardrobes.
