Saturday, Nestled in a tightly held pocket of the city within 100m of Launceston's popular Charles Street coffee strip and only a minutes’ walk to Northern Tasmania’s largest employer, the Launceston General Hospital, is this divine conjoined cottage.
Built c1890, 10 Batten Street retains all those much-loved character features such as a bullnose verandah and fretwork, baltic pine floorboards and the leadlight window in the entrance.
Other features include a large skylight in the living area, panel heaters in all rooms, off-street parking for one vehicle and two or three bedrooms (currently furnished as three bedrooms but one could be an office space).
The updated galley-style kitchen features a dishwasher, stainless steel oven, hotplates and rangehood.
Off to the side of the kitchen is a euro laundry and the renovated bathroom is at the rear of the property.
Boasting ultra-impressive short and long term rental history, this is a great option for investors.
In recent times the property has been used for short stay or Airbnb accommodation with very high occupancy rates.
However it’s also a lovely character home in an absolute blue chip location that would suit a first home buyer or professional couple.
Just wander out on to the main street for breakfast or along to one of the nearby local parks for some exercise, and forget about paying for parking in the central business district or catching cabs when you’re this close to town.
