"Old Illaroo" circa 1840
Old Illaroo is one of Northern Tasmania's finest Georgian homesteads. The original Land Grant was to James Thornloe Esq and the large house was built by Lt John Atkinson in about 1840. Historians have noted that the flat ached radial fanlight window over the double cedar front doors is of particular interest whilst the six panel cedar doors, Colonial mantel pieces and architraves throughout the home are also significant features. A Victorian style verandah, built on two sides of the house and dormer windows (added later) are noted architectural features.
Mature English oak trees line a driveway which leads to manageable gardens. They enhance this private 6 hectare title (15 acres) located on the outskirts of Launceston.
Historically, "Old Illaroo" has been a family home for many generations. Most rooms are generous in size. They include a ballroom or large gallery entrance, billiard room, dining room, formal and informal living areas. There are 6 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms occupying two levels. A country-style 1980's kitchen with cork tile floor covering, electric stove and gas cook top burners, Huon pine cabinet cupboards enjoys access to a large laundry with plenty of pantry shelving. The sunroom is north facing and doubles up as an alternate entrance from the garden and car port.
