An unassuming suburban house on the outskirts of Hobart hides a breathtaking million-dollar view.

Built in the 1950s, the single-storey oceanfront home in Howrah, 12 kilometres from the centre of the Tasmanian capital, was strategically designed to capture magnificent panoramas from almost every room.

Floor-to-ceiling windows wrapping around the rear of the house frame views of the water and imposing landscape that look like a living postcard.

You can see all the way from the northern tip of Bruny Island to the snowy peaks of Mount Wellington from the comfort of the living room sofa.

On the other side of the house is a master bedroom with its own private balcony that boasts views just as spectacular as the living room vista.
