Gracious stone home amid botanical gardens. 'The Manse' - 2 Titles - Approx 2400sqm.


Constructed in 1867 this gracious solid stone Manse was once the centre of the townships social and religious life. Nestled amid botanic cottage gardens, this stunning property offers 2 separate titles, garaging for 4 vehicles, 5kw solar and a peaceful rural outlook.

Tucked away behind glorious spring gardens, this enchanting home is something to behold. No expense has been spared in restoring the stonework beneath its wide shady veranda's. Lovers of old homes will adore the wide hallways, polished floorboards, tall ceilings, and the atmosphere created by the warmth of wood fires.

Tastefully upgraded, the kitchen is filled with charm. Quality appliances await you here with fixtures including a Chambord porcelain sink resplendent with French tapware. Both the laundry and bathroom have been renovated and are sure to impress. 

Spoiled for choice, living here will be nothing less than devine. Huge rooms provide multiple living options that can be utilized as you deem fit. The current owners have 3 large bedrooms, a family lounge/dine with direct access to the side verandah/gardens, an eat-in kitchen, study (or bed 4) plus another formal dine/living room.

Outdoor entertaining amid a multitude of "garden rooms" will become your new favourite thing. Perhaps a lazy lunch beneath shady trees where the outdoor table & chairs reside, maybe a glass of red by the fire pit or is it afternoon tea in the woolshed themed sitting area? There are so many options and all will include fresh fruit and veg from your own gardens.

Positioned on the edge of town, the property fronts farming land in a quiet side street. Made for the pages of a Country Style magazine, 'The Manse' is truly one of a kind. An old proverb says "he who hesitates is lost" …. Best that you do not!

The first occupant was Rev. James Roddick a minister sent out by the Colonial Committee to tend to the faithful. Rev. Roddick died in 1872 and is buried in the church grounds next door. A succession of presbyterian ministers continued to live in the Manse until the property was sold in the 1970's for residential purposes.
