Set on a beautifully landscaped, private and elevated position offering extraordinary views over the entire Goulburn Valley and beyond, the spectacular bespoke master-built home at 12 Mannifera Place in Goulburn is truly one of a kind.
Designed by award-winning architect Chris Reardon, this marvellous four-bedroom home extends over three magnificent levels.
The property was constructed of quality Taralga bluestone and Bundanoon sandstone and features breathtaking cathedral ceilings and large geometric windows with extensive use of cedar, oregon and blackbutt timbers.
Luton real estate agent Gabbi Kalthofen said the house was “jaw-dropping”.
“As a real estate agent, I’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of amazing properties, but this one is absolutely jaw-dropping.”
“It looks amazing in the photos, but it needs to be seen to be really appreciated,” she said.
The formal lounge on the main floor is one of the home’s multiple expansive living areas. With a stone fireplace and an in-built gas log fire, this lounge opens onto the sealed patio through double glass doors and leads out into the beautiful native gardens.
The heart of the home lies within the creatively designed combined kitchen and living room featuring high ceilings and large windows. The centrepiece is the magnificent full-height stone fireplace with an inbuilt double-sided Cheminees Philippe wood-burning fire, giving the space plenty of character and charm.
Gabbi said the “incredible” double-sided chimney was a stand-out, with beautiful stonework that extends throughout the house.
Upstairs is another informal living area with remarkable lighting and stone features. This space leads into the incredible master suite, with a dressing room, luxurious ensuite, private mezzanine and a balcony, offering the best views from the home.
Downstairs is a fully self-contained residence, with a large bedroom, bathroom, full-sized kitchen and another living space. It’s the perfect spot for guests or a potential second income.
Visible from the drive into the property are the established and beautifully maintained gardens with extensive landscaping, rock retaining walls and native plantings. Additionally, the property is nestled into the surrounding bushland reserve, providing a tranquil escape.
Finally, the property comes with an oversized garage, capable of housing up to four cars and space for a workshop, making it perfect for the weekend mechanic.
This masterpiece residence really does have it all.
It’s a one-hour drive to Canberra, less than two hours to Batemans Bay, 45 minutes to the Southern Highlands and two hours to Sydney. Of course, Goulburn is also at your doorstep.
