“Araluen” – An unforgettable piece of Tasmania – not to be missed.
This magnificent property is located on the fringe of Tasmania's second largest city, Launceston. Set on 120 acres of prime pasture this property is sure to impress even the fussiest of buyers.
From the moment you enter this modern day country estate, driving towards this stunning Tasmanian Georgian style home you know and appreciate immediately the 5-star accommodation that is being offered. The main residence features a two storey floor plan with everything you could want and more.
Entering through the double Blackwood doors to the grand foyer, your eyes are immediately drawn straight ahead to the light filled formal lounge and through the impressive picture window framing a breathtaking view over meticulously maintained gardens, surrounding land and across the property. From this point the left wing of the home includes 2 large bedrooms both with built in wardrobes and one also features its own ensuite. Adjoining this space is the separate bathroom with both bath and shower.
The children will be excited as this floor also includes its very own soundproof theatre room with large projector screen to watch their favourite movies in the cinema-like environment.
There is a real flame gas heater in the formal lounge room to set the mood and enjoy a quiet moment with family.
The open kitchen meals area includes a large tiled dining space - the perfect room for family gatherings or Christmas lunches. There is sliding door access from this space to the paved outdoor alfresco for the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor entertaining.
The large central kitchen is the heart of the home with quality Miele appliances including built in coffee machine. Large Caesar Stone benches, walk in pantry and adjoining thermostatically controlled wine cellar with arched timber ceiling are just a few of the amazing features in this space.
The rumpus space off the kitchen would make a great children's play room or study space. There is access to the sun-filled laundry and garage from this room.
The adjoining 4 car garage is carpeted and features remote roller doors for added convenience. There are also some great storage and facility/gym rooms off the garage and access to the in-ground swimming pool from this area.
Moving into the first floor of this home, it is hard to miss the award-winning Blackwood staircase that leads you up to the first floor landing. From this point you have access to the master suite featuring a large bedroom space with sliding door out to the covered deck and breathtaking rural views over the property. Every woman dreams of a huge dressing room with enough space for "him" and "her" and that's exactly what you will find in addition to an ensuite to die for! Sit back with your favourite glass of bubbles and soak away your troubles whilst taking in the views from the spa bath.
There is a parent retreat at the other side of the landing which is currently being used as a children's bedroom with another bedroom and robe space also.
There is also the inclusion of a separate flat with single bedroom, combined kitchen/lounge space, 2 bathrooms, sauna room and rumpus area. The flat adjoins the workshop/shed which would comfortably house 4 vehicles plus a carport with space for another 3.
