Tony and Deirdre Flint’s stately two-storey Old Colonial Regency homestead at Hollow Tree owned is on the market.
Built in sandstone and set within a sprawling rural landscape on four hectares, the heritage-listed Georgian property, Strathborough, is located about an hour from Hobart.
Mrs Flint was a long-serving councillor and mayor at Central Midlands and died in February this year, only months after resigning as mayor.
Built around 1820, the Midlands property offers potential buyers many options including livestock farming or a vineyard.
The established outbuildings – a walk-in meat safe and storage area, double garage, three workshops, double carport and stable – could also be used for cellar door sales, wine tasting or a venue for weddings.
For those interested in Strathborough’s architecture, the homestead facade has been built from fine pale stone, which protrudes at the ends, and the north and south walls are buttressed.
Inside, Strathborough welcomes visitors via a grand entrance foyer.
A large drawing room has an open fireplace with a pressed tin ceiling and the library has a stately integrated bookcase, cocktail cabinet and cupboards on either side of the fireplace.
The large, formal dining room is an ideal venue for dinner parties, from which you can walk through solid timber doors to a large sun room that was added in the late 1800s and overlooks private manicured gardens with a water feature and croquet lawn.
Strathborough’s kitchen has been updated to reflect it’s “country style” with a walk-in pantry, adjacent scullery with external entry and a secretive doorway leads down to a cellar.
On the second level are four spacious bedrooms, with a master bedroom fit for a king, second bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, large bathroom and separate toilet on this level. A timber staircase leads up to the attic and two additional rooms.
Strathborough is listed with agent Gary Reeves at Nest Property in Hobart.
