"Ketteringham" was built in 1843, of hand made convict bricks. Perched majestically amongst a beautiful private garden on the outskirts of the city of Launceston, this magnificent property has been home to notable characters over time including Sir Hudson Fysh, the founder of Qantas. Today, Ketteringham enjoys privacy and space so close to the CBD and the airport, over 2 titles that could provide sub-divisional opportunities (STCA). The grand double storey homestead is in fine condition with many original features including ornate ceilings, original joinery and floorboards. Spacious formal rooms flow well with a very functional floor plan. From the stately entrance, the ground floor presents formal dining and living rooms separated by a wine cellar, a sitting room, bathroom, study and kitchen with a generous walk-in pantry and also access to the laundry. On the upper level you will find 4 bedrooms and another bathroom. The garden features formal and informal areas including an extensive rose garden and well laid out vegetable garden. Many mature fruit and nut trees are well cared for and provide seasonal fare. A great yew hedge is well placed and provides amazing shelter from prevailing winds. Outside, the old stables have been converted to a lodge style billiard room with bar area and toilet facilities, which could easily become additional guest accommodation. Owning a home of this grandeur on grounds of park-like significance is truly a rare opportunity so close to conveniences and Tasmania's second largest city.
