"Old fashioned neighbourhood where everyone looks out for each other."

Large variety of home types from 20yrs - 125yrs old. Sensational city views and only 3 minutes drive down the hill to the city centre. Everything you need is within walking distance - Restaurant, cafes, newsagent, Hill St Grocer, Chemist parks, schools (primary, high school and colleges) and Knocklofty Reserve walks. 15 minutes walk to the North Hobart Restaurant strip and the wonderful State Cinema. This is an icon road that most people know and make nothing but positive comments about.
Pros
  • Excellent public transport
  • NBN available
  • Very family orientated
  • Access to the city and Knocklofty Reserve
  • Community atmosphere of West Hobart
  • Sublime views.
Cons
  • Many blocks are steep.

"Sublime views, quiet street and close to city"

2kms from the city, Poets Rd rises from Lansdowne Cr at the Cafe all the way to the entrance of Knocklofty reserve.
Brilliant views over the city and the river. We also have a great view of the mountain.
The street is quiet and shares the historic feel common to West Hobart.
