Picture Perfect Launceston
Northern Tasmania's charm is resulting in a burst in demand and quality dwellings of the nature of 165 George Street are leading the charge.

Born symbiotically from the collective skills of Victorian craftsmen and through a contemporary reimagination by interior designer Geoffrey Brown, this property is offered to the market as Launceston's most exclusive trophy residence of 2021 and the future.

Located in the premiere inner-city enclave on 1,150 metres of developed and developable land, the two story brick landmark property sets the tone for refined architecture in Australia's third oldest city.

The resonance of the home and its successes are heard loudest in the principal rooms of the ground floor, arranged flexibly for both formal and informal occasions. Fronting the street, the dining and living rooms are dressed with natural oak parquetry floors, marble fireplace surrounds and carefully curated light fittings. The library, family, kitchen and breakfast rooms with bespoke joinery and subtle extensions instead turn their gaze to the gardens and welcome the Northern light.

The central and connecting stair with intricate skylight above provides a gallery-like space that rises from the ground floor foyer 24 feet to the decorative mouldings adorning the ceiling. Celebrating colour, materiality and design, Brown has created for the new occupants three bespoke suites, each boldly and cleverly utilising the upper floor with private dressing and bathing rooms oriented to the city and garden view.

Complete with a fully realised architectural concept for the potential further development of the rear of the property, 165 George Street provides the astute amongst you a rare opportunity for further upside.

Prominent features of this property include:
• Completely renovated throughout with confident and funky colour scheme and carefully selected quality fittings and fixtures.
• Integrated hydronic gas heating throughout.
• Formal and informal entertaining rooms perfectly suited to both entertaining and private relaxation.
• 10 minutes drive from the Launceston Airport, directly over the road from the Private Hospital and walking distance to Launceston's cafes and shops.
• Further scope to realise development value from the large rear block of land.

Inspections are strictly by appointment only and for qualified purchasers intent upon owning a piece of local history and one of Launceston's finest homes.
