Built C1860, "Rose Cottage" has been lovingly restored, renovated and updated throughout yet still retains many original features such as the gorgeous fireplaces, ceiling roses and Baltic pine floorboards.

It’s this mix of old with new and a superb location with views that makes it one of those classic old Launceston homes that everyone loves.

The master bedroom features a fireplace, spacious walk-in robe and new ensuite. The living area is centrally located, boasting beautiful timber floors and a unique fireplace that hosts a Lopi wood heater.

Recently renovated the main bathroom boasts a walk-in shower and pedestal basin with floor-to-ceiling white subway tiles.

The updated kitchen features a 900mm freestanding oven with gas cook top and a walk-in pantry and the space opens onto the glass atrium-style sunroom/dining area.

Extending from the atrium are French doors leading to the large balcony running the length of the house.

The views from the balcony and new deck are extraordinary, taking in the Tamar River, Launceston city and mountains to the East.

There is off street parking for two cars and the 650m2 block has street frontage to both Stone and Eleanor Streets which opens up the possibility of dual access (STCA).

Underneath the house there is plenty of dry storage and the garden has extensive plantings of roses throughout.
