I am currently conducting an in depth research study into a house owned by my parents in Mowbray, Launceston, Tasmana named 'Vermont Homestead' situated once on the farm of 'Vermont'.
My research is going well besides one thing: the date the house was built. I have been told it was built in numerous decades from 1845 right through to 1890, which still keeps it in the Victorian date range.
From my research, my personal guess would about around 1850 - 1855, but I am no real expert.
It has such features as 12ft high ceilings but with no cornices, grained wooden skirting boards, door frames, doors etc, double fronted (now enclosed) with wrap around verandah with iron lace work and supporting colums, arched windows on each front and an arched front door way.
Attached is a picture, if you need any more just ask and I will attach some more.
If you could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.
