The site for ‘Old Illaroo’ was chosen for its spectacular views across the countryside and the home’s verandahs still make use of the views today.

Situated at the top of an English oak-lined driveway, the heritage property has been built with attractive convict brick and still boasts many heritage features from its era.

With noticeably grand rooms, the property’s heritage features can be seen in its stylish French and cedar doors, blackwood flooring, regency mantles and fireplaces, multi-paned Georgian windows, and a large entry hall with an arched radian fanlight.

The seven-bedroom home also benefits from a dining room, drawing room, informal and formal lounges, and a North facing sunroom.

Outside, the 15-acre property contains a separate self-contained brick cottage, stables, two-car garage, undercover BBQ space and workshop buildings with 3 phase power.

The established garden is reminiscent of an English cottage garden with stonewalling, sprawling grassed areas, flower beds and vegetable plots.

The property is located ten minutes from the Launceston CBD and a short drive away from the historic township of Evandale. The price expectation for the property is between A$3.6 – $3.7 million.
