BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED VICTORIAN PERIOD STYLE (1886circa) - HIGH ON THE HILL WITH UNINTERRUPTED SWEEP

Located in Invermay high above the flood levy with uninterrupted sweeping views across York Park to East Launceston, this property is named Valvenie, believed to be of Welsh decent meaning - on the hill. In the late 70s the property was purchased by the Croatian Sports and Social Club and during this period a bathroom block was added to provide for both the players and the Club Patrons, a commercial kitchen fitted, and many internal walls and fireplaces were removed to allow for a dining room and two bar rooms. Valvenie has now been lovingly restored and extended to meet the demands of a large family in the new millennium, yet it retains its original charm and character with 13ft ceilings and openfire places, in keeping with its distinct Victorian Period Style. c1886.

Located in Invermay high above the flood levy with uninterrupted sweeping views across York Park to East Launceston, this property is named Valvenie, believed to be of Welsh decent meaning - on the hill.

In the late 70s the property was purchased by the Croatian Sports and Social Club and during this period a bathroom block was added to provide for both the players and the Club Patrons, a commercial kitchen fitted, and many internal walls and fireplaces were removed to allow for a dining room and two bar rooms.

Valvenie has now been lovingly restored and extended to meet the demands of a large family in the new millennium, yet it retains its original charm and character with 13ft ceilings and openfire places, in keeping with its distinct Victorian Period Style. c1886.

The front interior of the house has an entrance foyer, and leading off to the right is a combined formal dining and sitting room with study. The Victorian architectural detailing in these rooms is of lathern plaster and the floors are original Tas Oak.

Leading through the arch on right hand side are two enormous bedrooms (one with ensuite) and original casement windows that lead onto the front verandah. On the other side of the hallway are two more double bedrooms one with a walk through wardrobe leading to a second ensuite. The hallway leads through to period style master bath complete with cast iron claw foot bath and brass fittings.

To the left of the entrance is a living room with Jetmaster fireplace and large Victorian doors, which are reported to have been removed from the old Launceston Hotel, that lead to a bespoke kitchen with original pressed tin lined cabinetry.

Here, the more recent history of the house has been honored by keeping the very functional commercial exaughst in the kitchen area, placing the original mantle on top and a natural gas Falcon Cooker with dual ovens underneath.

The kitchen is an entertaines's delight with two sinks, natural gas cooking and a substantial island bench that divides the informal dining area from the kitchen. Originally the verandah and bathroom, this area has now been extended to become a lovely sun room with internal laundry and french doors that lead out to the 3 x 9 metre long deck.

Valvenie is situated accross the road from York Park, 5mins walk to City Park and 10mins to the CBD. It is the perfect location to meet the demands of family living in Launceston, or use as B&B / Guesthouse or sub-divide and develope(STCA).
