About the property

A beautiful house in Riverside Launceston just minutes from the city with magnificent views over the city, river and mountains. Located in a quiet crescent.

A major renovation was completed in July 2016 which opened up space to maximise the awesome views, new modern kitchen with all the utensils to cook up a feast, new carpet and freshly painted throughout - transforming this house and making it ideal for large families and groups with the 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

You will love the feeling of the house - light and bright with plenty of room to move. When you are back from your travels, you can relax and unwind on the new 4 metre deck or at the dining table or at the kitchen island bench or on the comfortable couches in front of the large screen TV with Foxtel.

Guests enjoy the free Wi-Fi for their stay at Riverside Serenity.

Great Venue for Extended Family Groups

  • 4 of 5

Bright and spacious family home with a wonderfully large kitchen and family room where 3 generations of my extended family could relax and enjoy the panoramic view, watch the large screen TV and prepare food in the well equipped kitchen which has all the equipment you could need.

Short trip walking distance to Woolworths Supermarket, Hotel and short trip to the City and the Gorge. Would recommend to family and friends.

Great elevation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed as a family of 6 and there was still room left over. A lovely renovated property with beautiful views of the Tamar river from the deck. A really enjoyable experience and only 10 minutes to CBD.
