The superlatives flow with this classic home in historical Westbury. Built in 1857 it has a rich history which is available to all interested parties and has been meticulously maintained. It has the period features of spacious rooms, high ceilings, even to the point of the massive lounge room, still with the original Tassie hardwood floors and some outstanding architraves and skirtings. There are no less than five working open fire places providing old world charm but also supported by a reverse cycle heating/cooling unit. Superb use of Tasmanian timbers are a highlight with the necessities of kitchen and bathroom having the modern practicalities without damaging the yesteryear feel of the home. Triple brick walls ensure great insulation but it's the quality of the finish both inside and out that will impress all buyers. The home itself is 30+ squares under roof line and sits on a flat block of approximately 1500 sq. meters. The gardens carry on the trend with a variety of plants, trees, including fruit and has a very private backyard that will produce some surprises! Positioned just a short walk from the main shopping precinct, you have a very special English style "Village Green" nearby which is central to several activities including the Westbury Irish Festival held in March and the Westbury leg of the fast growing Tasmanian Criterium bike racing series which attracts riders from the mainland and overseas. With a four car garage, workshop, superb street appeal and only 25 minutes from Launceston, you have the opportunity to purchase something very special.
