Character, style and charm
“Wielangta”, a local aboriginal name meaning “tall trees”, is an apt description for this exceptional lifestyle property. Reminiscent of a botanical garden with its lofty palms and heirloom orchard, and with an elegant 1917 character home at its heart, this offering forms an intrinsic part of the fabric of Legana’s storied agricultural heritage. “Wielangta” has only changed hands a few times before, and there’s little wonder why- this is truly a home to fall in love with.
The location: only 1.4 kms from the thriving Legana shopping precinct and a relaxed 15-minute commute to the city of Launceston. A new primary school will commence construction in Legana in 2022.
-Meticulously-maintained, elegant weatherboard and iron residence constructed in 1917, situated on a largely level, generous allotment of 9113 sqm.
-A grandly proportioned home, well-suited to a family, offering: 4 bedrooms; 2 bathrooms; 2 living areas.
-Original period features include: high ceilings; ornate fretwork and fireplace surrounds; picture rails; shady verandahs; quality joinery as befits the era of the home’s construction.
-The bedrooms are spacious and all offer delightful views of the garden, and are served by no less than two bathrooms.
-There are two living areas: one is a more formal affair conducive to quiet conversation (or entertaining!) by the gorgeous open fireplace; the other is a relaxed open-plan area comprising the family and dining room, and the kitchen. This area boasts wood heating, Daikin reverse-cycle air-conditioning and a gas log fire- all bases and seasons covered!
-The kitchen features quality Corian benches atop mellow-toned blackwood joinery with ample pantry storage and prep space.
-Secure garaging is available for 2 vehicles, undercover parking for 3, and there’s off-street parking aplenty.
With a residential zoning and the block size of 9113m2, subdividing a few blocks off (STCA) could be worth consideration.
-The generations-old orchard features more than a dozen varieties of established fruit trees, many planted more than a century ago. They’re too numerous to mention here, so please contact the agent for details. There’s also a veggie patch and berry cage. Those seeking a more self-sufficient lifestyle will relish this garden’s bounty and its income potential- it’s already a local drawcard for farm gate sales!
