TAS Country : September 9th 2010
Friday, September 10, 2010 Tasmanian Country 27 Rural property Commodious home for gentle folk LONGFORD House was named after the long ford that traverses the conflu- ence of the South Esk and Macquarie Rivers. The his- toric village of Longford was established early in the settlement of Tasmania 1833. Its close proximity to the city of Launceston, the fertile soils of the sur- rounding Norfolk Plains and the abundance of water combine to create the English landscape for which Longford has be- come so admired. Longford House, built circa 1834 and known as one of Tasmania's finest colonial homes, was ad- vertised for sale in The Examiner newspaper, November 1854. It was described as: ''All that noble man- sion, domain and garden, situate in the suburbs of Longford and known as Longford House. ''The edifice is hand- some, extensive and commodious, and is in thorough repair, with every accommodation of offices, outhouses, pro- lific garden, and a well of the purest water.'' The house then, as now, is offered for sale with the original 8ha of land, comprising 2ha of parks and garden, an orchard, barn and 6ha of meadow divided into several paddocks. Longford House and its gardens have been lov- ingly maintained and of- fer a rare opportunity to participate in her con- tinuing history. The property features: charming entrance foyers; five reception rooms; four to six bedrooms; two bathrooms; cook's kitchen; sandstone flagged verandahs; garaging for five cars; historic outbuildings; and town water.
