Views from Bowhill Grange
Ubicado a medio camino entre Hobart y Launceston y a cinco minutos del pueblo histórico de Oatlands, Bowhill Grange, catalogado por National Trust, es una colección perfecta de edificios agrícolas coloniales que se construyeron en 1854. Ubicado en un oasis de verde, a la sombra de una arboleda de antiguos cipreses y encaramado en una cresta de arenisca con vista a la presa adyacente, Bowhill Grange está rodeado por cientos de acres de pastos merino de primera con un espectacular telón de fondo de Table Mountain y el área de conservación circundante. . Originalmente parte de la renombrada propiedad de Anstey Barton, la propiedad pasó a seis generaciones de la familia Agnew en 1878 bajo la dirección de Sir James Agnew, quien posteriormente fue uno de los primeros primeros ministros de Tasmania. Como parte integral de esta propiedad prominente, Bowhill Grange no solo refleja la historia colonial temprana de Tasmania, sino que de hecho fue un contribuyente activo, bien conocido en toda la joven colonia durante este período como el hogar de The Assyrian, el ganador de la Copa de Melbourne de 1882, que se estabuló aquí durante casi dos décadas. Con dos cabañas independientes bellamente renovadas, Bowhill Grange es una base ideal para explorar las magníficas Southern Midlands y más allá, con Hobart, Launceston y la costa este a aproximadamente una hora en automóvil. Alternativamente, ¿por qué no simplemente sentarse, relajarse y disfrutar de la verdadera paz y tranquilidad del campo?

Elizabeth's Cottage image

Elizabeth's Cottage

Originally constructed in 1854, it was designed by the renowned ex-convict architect Frederick Thomas who was responsible for many landmark colonial buildings. The cottage was groundbreaking for its time in that it was planned to provide improved lodging to entice immigrant farmworkers and their families to rural Tasmania. The resultant sandstone building is very distinctive in style with its high pitched roof, five-meter ceiling and commanding position overlooking the surrounding pastures. Extensively renovated in recent years, it combines wonderful old features like the original wooden staircases, tall deep-set windows, original baker’s ovens and a huge sandstone fireplace in the sitting room, with thoughtfully sourced furnishings that harmonize with and enhance the character of the original building. A large private verandah is a perfect spot for soaking in the views. The cottage has two character-filled bedrooms. The main bedroom is on the ground floor with an ensuite bathroom and an extra single bed. The second bedroom is accessed through the main bedroom via very steep and narrow stairs and is not suitable for children or the mobility impaired and does not have a separate bathroom. There is a fully equipped kitchen and breakfast provisions.
