An estate of significant provenance and sublime presence, Freshwater Point offers country tranquility and extensive Tamar Estuary frontage in a setting that seems a world away – yet is merely moments from Legana shopping and some 15 minutes from central Launceston.
Spectacular gardens and the satisfying crunch of the gravel drive deliver you to the homestead, originally constructed by Jonathan Griffiths c1824 on land first named Freshwater Point by Matthew Flinders.
The sense of history is palpable throughout the quadruple convict brick built residence that reveals all the benefits of a renovation project that has been comprehensive in its reach, compelling in its refinement.
Evocative original details define superb period spaces that reveal elegant verandah dimensions and delightful garden views through romantic French doors while the up-to-date efficiency of the light-filled kitchen cannot be faulted.
Five bedrooms and three bathrooms include one of each in ‘The Folly, an award winning Georgian inspired dual level apartment that seamlessly melds modern excellence to the homestead’s classical elegance.
Views over the grounds to the Tamar, three self-contained cottages and extensive out buildings and storage contribute character and convenience in equal measure.
Entertaining is made even more memorable by terrace expanses and the solar heated saltwater pool.
A captivating cellar, highly regarded vineyard, majestic mature trees, heirloom plantings, a 30m jetty and a deep water mooring accompany Freshwater Point, a property that enthralls, engages and entices in different ways each and every day.
