There is a reason why the early settlers chose to establish the picturesque Georgian village of Evandale on this site in the 1820’s. Perched on a plateau above the banks of the South Esk River, Colonial landscape artist John glover was inspired by its surrounding countryside and the township itself. Evandale is the very picture of rural bliss that everyone dreams of. Parkview is no exception. This charming home represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a residence extensively and sympathetically refurbished. Perfect as an interstate weekend townhouse, private 142m2 home for downsizers or luxury accommodation venture.
Parkview’s weatherboard facade is dressed in quality fretwork, traditional steep pitched roof, wide front door, Victorian windows, shutters and full-length verandah. Visitors enter the home through an inviting muted colour vestibule, setting the scene for the remainder of the home. The open plan living/dining and kitchen is grand in proportion. Walls and ceilings are beautifully lined with painted pine. The country kitchen has bespoke cabinetry, stone benchtops, ample storage space and Bellini appliances. There is an abundance of natural light providing a feeling of warmth and calm.
The formal sitting room is simply stunning. The 6m x 6.2m well proportioned room features a large decorative fireplace which is the focal point of this spacious area. There is an ambience of quality – carpets, wallpaper, pine lined ceiling, wide architraves and skirting boards, solid character doors and beautiful window dressings. The hallway leads to the spacious bedroom with sitting area and ensuite, laundry and separate guest toilet – all beautifully designed.
Beyond the back door is where your creativity and imagination can roam free. A permit is in place to build two further bedrooms with ensuites, a formal living area or library/office or to just create a wonderful cottage garden sanctuary for quiet enjoyment.
Parkview is positioned close to the historic centre of Evandale. Within a short stroll from your front door, you are spoilt by charming laneways, cottage gardens, parks, churches, country stores, the Clarendon Arms hotel, Georgian and Victorian homes and cottages, antique stores, gift shops, local supermarket and the Ingleside cafe – where locals and tourists gather for great coffee, breakfast, lunch and to catch up on the town daily news. Here you will also find sourdough from one of the best artisan bread makers in Tasmania.
Evandale has excellent amenities including library, ovals, fishing on the South Esk River, parks and its own very popular Sunday country market. Evandale is also home to Australia’s most prestigious Landscape Art prize – The Annual Glover Art Prize. The city of Launceston is a short 15 minute drive and Launceston Airport 5 minutes.
Evandale is one of Australia’s highly sought after country towns. It’s easy to understand why charming houses such as Parkville are highly prized, tightly held and rarely present to the property market. Parkview is everyone’s country ideal.
