TAS Country : January 10th 2013
Friday, January 11, 2013 Tasmanian Country 15 Rural property Stunning piece of Tassie history FOREST Hall, built around 1850, pres- ents a rare opportunity to buy one of Tasmania's finest and most recognised Georgian homes. The house and garden will need no introduction, having been well publi- cised in numerous gardening books and magazines. This magnificent garden needs to be viewed to be appreciated, it features hundreds of varieties of roses, a large selection of crab apples and many rare and unusual trees and shrubs. The grand homestead of bluestone construction sits in a commanding position with expansive rural views across the district. The building itself is in excellent condition with all the features you would expect including original cedar joinery and polished timber floors. The large country kitchen has whitewashed stone walls, exposed beams and a large pantry. A formal dining room and various reception rooms lead off the wide and impressive entrance hall. A beautiful cedar staircase takes you to the second floor where there are two bathrooms and the bedrooms. One of these is being utilised as an office. Adjoining the homestead is the old convict residence, which has been converted for guests and includes two bedrooms, a sitting room and a bath- room. Historic outbuildings include the old barn constructed of solid stone and split shingles, the blacksmiths cottage and stables. The property is in two titles, totalling 117.7ha. About half is cleared pasture with rich red soils, typical of the district and the tree-lined paddocks are currently grazing cattle. The remain- der is planted to gum trees. There are three dams providing stock water with the fourth dam is dedicated to the Forest Hall garden.
