"Elizabeth Heights" is an exceptional heritage property which is being presented for sale for the first time in decades, with arguably the best views and location in Launceston; overlooking notable landmarks such as the rugged Cataract Gorge and stately Kings Bridge, the iconic Penny Royal, and the picturesque South Esk River, and only minutes from the heart of the city.
This much-loved family home is as much a part of the local landscape as those already mentioned, perched upon it's cliff-side eyrie. A grandly-proportioned Federation era home, it is ready for the next chapter of it's history to be written. With only two owners since it's construction at the dawn of the twentieth century, original features abound. And whilst the home is undoubtedly in need of restoration, it also means that it has not been subjected to careless and unsympathetic renovation projects in the past, that may have relegated it's olde world charm into style oblivion.
Comprising three king-sized bedrooms, (one with a full-sized, private bathroom; another a spacious walk-in robe), and multiple reception rooms that consist of a formal lounge and dining room, a sun room featuring unimpeded 180 degree views across the gorge towards the city, and a rumpus room that overlooks the property's terraced hillside garden. Should the fresh air beckon, take in the glorious view from the balcony or veranda instead, and watch the sun rise and set over the valley in absolute privacy.
The kitchen and bathroom are in need of updating, and have been maintained, but largely untouched style-wise since 1978. They are most definitely prime examples of what was "on point" during that decade!
At the rear of the property, there is a workshop with a separate toilet that could also serve as an excellent studio. Vehicles are accommodated by a roomy three-bay carport.
