Snappy sale for Tasmanian mansion Sentosa

Sentosa, a 100 year old Hobart waterfront, has been snappily sold having come with $6.5 million hopes through Knight Frank agent Mathew Chugg.

It was sold by Wendy and Barry Turnbull who paid $815,000 for the home in 1993.

The 1917 home designed by Marco Linardi sits amid 2309 sqm of Paul Bangay-designed gardens on Blinking Billy Point.

The grounds meander down to the water with a lawn overlooking Long Beach.

The home spanning 693 sqm has five bedrooms, including two on the fully self-contained first floor that also comprises a lounge, kitchen and bathroom. 

The master suite with separate dressing room overlooks the river and there's a 15 metre indoor pool in a conservatory inspired room.

The ground floor features a grand dining room, lounge and stately staircase crafted from Huon pine with bespoke iron balustrades.

Early Australian aviator Charles Kingsford Smith visited when he honeymooned in Hobart with his second wife Mary in 1931.
