OCEANA Drive boasts some of the most spectacular views of Hobart, and this property is a prime example of the magic that is on offer.
From yachts to the Mona ferries to dolphins and occasionally whales, all of the action on the river can be seen from this home.
The living zones and the two curved decks will be the best spots to take in the splendid show as the sun sets over the city.
This elegant property exudes style, class and quality. The high ceilings, wrought-iron balustrades and ceiling roses with chandeliers set a scene of taste and grandeur.
