Meet Tasmania's latest luxury getaway

Located just outside one of Tasmania's loveliest villages - Evandale - Leighton House is Tasmania's latest luxury getaway.

Just down the road from Josef Chromy Wines, and a short drive from Launceston, Leighton House can cater for between two to 12 people and is a beautiful period homestead.

Potential highlights include an al fresco sauna and spa experience, or enjoying a glass of wine in front of one of the home's fireplaces.

The Georgian home, built in 1840, consists of three grand bedrooms with en suites and a study, while a new wing is home to an open-plan kitchen, living and dining and upstairs, a bunk room featuring six double bed bunks, a teen retreat and pool room.

Conceptualised by Hobart architectural firm, Core Collective, the new building is designed to complement the original home, clad with locally-sourced carbon neutral bricks made 15km away in Longford.

A protected courtyard and glass atrium connects the old and new parts of the home.

A sandstone wellness platform sits in the landscaped garden with mountain views, featuring a hot tub, sauna, yoga platform and fire pit.

The property sits on 300 acres of farmland with views of the Ben Lomond Mountain Range and Western Tiers and a position on the South Esk River.

For food and wine lovers, Leighton House is placed at the start of the Tamar Valley wine route and is a stone's throw from Launceston's food scene. It is a UNESCO City of Gastronomy, one of only 49 around the world.

Comforts include high-speed wifi, two OLED Samsung TVs, an Audio Technica record player, Electrolux oven and cooktop, Breville Oracle Coffee Machine and a barbecue and pizza oven.
