Hatherley House, one of Launceston's oldest properties, has been listed for sale following a conversion by its architect owners.

The 1870s Italianate home was bought for $1.91 million in 2011 by architect couple Jack and Rebecca Birrell from Birrelli art + design who converted the manor into a boutique art hotel.

It's been trading as Hatherley Birrell Collection, which has eight bedrooms.

It sits in 1,730 square metre gardens.

A mythical griffin's head dates from the family crest of the 1870s owner, Henry Dowling, and can be seen at the entry gate and also in a stained glass window in the grand hall.

Tasmania Sotheby's agents Gayle Walker and Jake McIntyre have the listing.
