Welcome to Jutland House!Originally built in 1831 by Colonial Architect John Lee Archer, Jutland is a significant example of a stuccoed old colonial Georgian domestic building. It is one of the earliest properties in the area and is listed in the Tasmanian Heritage Register.
While much modified since it was first built the house still maintains some significant original features, including the lead glass panelled front entrance, thick stuccoed walls with wide door jambs, panelled cedar doors, small pane sash windows and fretwork brackets on the verandas.
This property offers, not only a unique opportunity to own a piece of Tasmanian history, it also has development potential (STCA), with the land extending over two lots on separate titles.
The house itself has the great 'bones' you would expect from such a quality colonial property. From the sweeping front lawns you are drawn down to the charming front courtyard and covered entrance foyer - the perfect way to welcome guests.
Inside is a generous front reception area that leads off to the formal living area on the left, and dining room to the right. You also enter the upstairs private rooms from this area, as well as taking the solid hard wood stairs to the lower level.
The living room is accessed via framed glass double doors, and runs almost 7 meters from one end to the other. The dining room, on the opposite side of the reception foyer, is a similar size to the living room, with a large fireplace and two generous windows.
Behind these formal rooms is a central hallway leading off into the family space. Behind the dining room is a real cook's kitchen opening onto an informal dining space.
Follow the hallway from the kitchen and you will pass a large bedroom, with bathroom next door, then a smaller bedroom or study and at the end of the hallway is the magnificent sunroom. Off the sunroom, via double glass doors, is a large space currently used as a bedroom, but could be a games room, library or home office.
The entire upper floor covers approximately 237sqm. Move downstairs and you will find another four bedrooms, two of these open onto a covered deck leading down into the garden. The lower level also has two bathrooms, a laundry, plenty of storage, including a cellar and a central sitting room. The entire lower floor covers approximately 179sqm.
Outside is just as impressive with extensive landscaped gardens and original outbuildings. There is a sweeping concrete driveway down to a single garage and carport.
While needing some updating and personal touches, this property could be a statement home, or a quality bed and breakfast business. All this plus the extra opportunity to develop on the large block (STCA).
With its many original features, significant size plus gardens and on two titles, this property offers a unique opportunity to make a piece of our history your very own.
