Historic Tasmanian landmark home on the market

Dysart House

Having been built in 1841, historic landmark home Dysart House is currently on the market in Tasmania. Built in the Old Colonial Grecian Regency style, it features an imposing facade with Doric columns, a Greek portico and a grand entrance hall. The two-storey, seven-bedroom Kempton residence has multiple living spaces, a cellar and six bathrooms, while the kitchen is large enough to operate on a commercial scale. The interiors retain fine period details, with Cedar timber joinery and double-hung sash windows. Set on six hectares of pasture, the grounds include a wonderful flagstone courtyard, quadrangle surrounding the main house, north and south wings and a self-contained brick cottage.
