One of Tasmania’s finest colonial buildings, DYSART HOUSE, has come on the market. The double storey sandstone masterpiece is in the finest condition of its long and colourful life…..a life that started in 1841 as a coach staging post for travellers on the road between Hobart and Launceston. The 22 room mansion has a hipped roof, 12-paned double hung windows, stringcourse, moulded cornice and a projecting central bay with lower storey classical columns over the entrance. AND what a grand entrance it is. Almost exclusive use of Australian cedar gives Dysart House a luxurious feel of homely elegance, combined with the grandeur of the period. The dining room, sitting room, library, office and second floor living room, though spacious, magically retain a fine sense of intimate quality living. The ground floor kitchen is large and well equipped adjoining a store room with a large wine cellar sited below the kitchen. The bedrooms have beautiful cedar window furnishings with generous en suites and in addition to the vibrant throbbing nucleus of the house, presently used as the easily managed principal living areas, there are two wings, one of which has two large bedrooms, the other boasts a games room plus two smaller bedrooms. The outbuildings contain a laundry and a smart self contained caretaker’s cottage grouped around a large courtyard. Standing apart is another large fine heritage building containing the old coach house, now used as a four car garage, stables with horse boxes and a large workshop area. The property stands on 5.811 hectares ( 14.35 acres) divided into two large fields and two smaller paddocks. The one acre garden is stocked with young fruit trees. The property has been recently rewired with electric wall heaters and radiators throughout. The plumbing has been replaced with copper pipes and the property is on town water and main sewage. The new Midlands water scheme is routed nearby for agricultural purposes if required. The property, as a result of the new Brighton by-pass, though rural, is only thirty five minutes from the Hobart CBD. Hobart Airport is also very accessible, enabling the fortunate purchaser of Dysart House to enjoy living in a luxurious and convenient manner. Alternatively, a smart investor can recognise the opportunities Dysart House offers. Dysart House is offered at $ 1.6 Million.
