With offers in excess of $7 million expected, Quamby Estate at Hagley has received attention from across the country.
Quamby Estate is one of Tasmania's most prestigious and historically significant properties dating back to 1828 when it was the ancestral home of Tasmania's first-born Premier and first Australian recipient of a knight-hood, Sir Richard Dry.
Born at Launceston in 1815, Sir Dry inherited Quamby Estate after the death of his father in 1843.

His parliamentary career began in 1845, when he was nominated to the non-elected Legislative Council.
In 1858, Queen Victoria bestowed on him a knighthood in honour of his outstanding service to the colony of Tasmania.
Real estate agent Sam Woolcock said the storied history of the property had been a drawcard for potential buyers.
"It's got a lot of historical significance," he said
"And there is great demand for Tasmanian property in general but there are certainly high net-worth families who are looking to buy properties like this."
Whilst the property remains on the market, Mr Woolcock said that enquiries had largely been from potential interstate buyers who were looking to invest in Tasmanian properties.
"At the moment it is still on the market, but we have a number of clients waiting to come down after lockdown," he said.
"We're dealing with a lot of enquiries from interstate who were looking at coming down earlier, but extended lockdowns have prevented them.
"They are ready to come down and put in offers as soon as borders reopen."
The property is currently being used as a hotel with its very own nine hole golf course, with Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson holding the number one membership.
However, Mr Woolcock said there was also scope for the purchaser to utilise the property as a home base in Tasmania or as a rural land hold.
Featuring 10 bedrooms and 10 ensuite bathrooms in addition to two reception rooms, Quamby Estate is of grand proportions.
Mr Woolcock said it was difficult to say exactly which feature of the property was his favourite but the striking views from the home were hard to beat.

"The setting is quite amazing, the property has got a really established old European trees so you're coming in to the property and you've got the backdrop of the tiers and the farming land," he said.
"It does have that English or European feel to it"
"I think that's the real appeal of it, the setting of it
"You're actually quite elevated so you can look back down at Launceston and it's a really lovely rural setting."
