Victorian Masterpiece

This may be your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure yourself a rare piece of Launceston’s history and become only the 3rd custodian of this Victorian gem with sweeping views over Launceston’s Seaport. 27 West Tamar Road is the most remarkable property, rich in history, charm and stories yet unwritten. Built in 1889 by JR Green of JR Green Hardware fame, the property remained in the Green family for 100 years until the current owners acquired the property in 1989. This distinguished family home has been lovingly cared for and maintained, with the utmost respect paid to preserving the character and charm, making it a rare historical treasure and a fine example of Victorian architecture.

As you walk through that front door and step over the threshold, One can only imagine the stories that have been written within these walls. The floorplan is flexible to suit any lifestyle, ideal for those with an extended family, running a business from home or even a guesthouse. Original features are in abundance throughout including soaring ceilings with ceiling roses, beautifully detailed timber work and floor coverings, 6 ornate fireplaces, and multi-paned leadlight windows symbolic of the Arts and Crafts era. Both toilets even feature JR Green cisterns. Downstairs, you are spoilt for choice of hosting rooms including the front drawing/sitting room, formal dining and large lounge room. The kitchen has undergone a recent update blending the charm of yesteryear with contemporary convenience, with the original woodfired oven and range now residing beside the modern comforts of the Belling 6 burner gas/electric stove. The ground level floorplan is completed with a powder room and maid’s bedroom, that is currently function as a library or reading room. The Blackwood staircase leads upstairs to 5 bedrooms, central bathroom with clawfoot bath and a lovely veranda to sit and enjoy the location. At the rear of the home is a lovely enclosed parlour or sunroom for an extension of the panty and a peaceful afternoon cream tea. This connects to the single carport, storage area and outside toilet.

Perched on a generous 3035m2 or ¾ acre block, perhaps potential for future subdivision subject to Council approval, the front garden is more formal whilst the back garden is a whimsical mix providing many sweet moments tucked away in quiet corners. With stone retaining walls, established fruit trees and meandering paths, it’s the perfect place for children and adults alike, to roam and explore. There is also a lovely entertaining area protected by hedges for privacy. Original outbuildings of the property are another feature, including the Blacksmith’s shop, greenhouse, coach house + stables and storage shed, still lined with wallpaper sample remnants of JR Green. There is also a handy 2nd driveway for more off-street parking.

Located just meters from the entrance to Cataract Gorge and within walking distance to the very best that Launceston has to offer, this warm and inviting home is truly something special.
