If you are looking for a home to raise a family in, 8 Bourke Street may be just what you are looking for.
This beautiful federation style home is nestled on the outskirts of Launceston and offers an enviable lifestyle.
Loved and cared for by the same family for the last 25 years, most of the restoration has been completed, but there is still an opportunity to put your own stamp on the property.
“We last refurbished the bathrooms in the 90s, so there is an opportunity to update them,” current owner Danielle Blewett said.
“We put a lot of thought into how we could create great spaces for entertaining, especially in the kitchen and living area.”
The kitchen, dining and living areas flow wonderfully out onto the verandah, so the view of the city is always present.
“You never tire of that view, Launceston is such a pretty city,” Ms Blewett said.
The kitchen has been thoughtfully designed, with many of the original house features remaining, including a walk-in pantry built in 1847.
The property boasts three good sized bedrooms on the first floor with the option of a fifth bedroom or rumpus area on the ground floor.
Ms Blewett said the property was a fantastic place to raise kids.
“We have great memories of our kids playing under the blackwood trees in the garden,” she said.
“It is a house to fall in love with and to create your own family story in."
