In the perfectly picturesque town of Deloraine and only 30 minutes from Launceston and Devonport, Highgate is a magnificent historic home that captures your heart and your imagination.

On the doorstep of the Great Western Tiers and in a beautiful established street, Highgate is surrounded by exceptional formal and informal landscaped gardens and has been meticulously restored and updated to showcase all the gorgeous period features while providing a modern, family-friendly home.

Built circa 1884, the solidity of triple brick external and internal walls, 12-foot ceilings, magnificent polished pine floorboards and lovely old open fireplaces are all connections to the past and add plenty of charm and character.

With three stunningly renovated living areas, three bedrooms and three bathrooms (including the studio), there is no shortage of space and amenities.

The indoor heated pool has also been fully renovated and a 20-panel, 7KW solar system, four-car garage and a separate self-contained studio apartment adjacent to the main building are all added bonuses.

There’s dual street access, a formal rose garden, vegie patches and a beautiful circular driveway lined with silver birch trees.

The current owners have elevated this property to the premiere level and opened its future up to many possibilities in a relaxed, rural setting.

If you’re looking for something special in a vibrant little town full of country comforts or a place that could potentially provide additional income, then this home is perfect.
