Hatherley House is an 1830's grand mansion listed on the National Estate Register and located within walking distance to the Launceston city centre. The house has two self contained suites, where original grandeur has been retained and combined with ultra modern elements for an outstanding result. The mansion is surrounded by a picturesque english parkland garden.
Within the heritage gardens of Hatherley House are two garden pavilion rooms. Innovative in design, these contemporary, eco-friendly retreats were inspired by chinese lanterns. They feature moon windows within origami like roof forms, and are filled with striking art throughout. Private outdoor areas complete with a luxurious carved stone outdoor bath within an exquisite garden setting make the garden pavilions an experience to remember.
Nearby in the centre of the inner city, Hatherley Birrell Collection offers an incredible modern architectural two bedroom apartment, with full kitchen, laundry, two bathrooms and two private outdoor areas.
La petite chambre Matisse is furnished in the french empire style of the 18th and 19th century and features a rare colour lithograph, 'Poemes de Charles d'Orleans' by renowned french impressionist Henri Matisse.
