Once in a lifetime opportunity to own a unique piece of Goulburn's History an EC Manfred mansion situated in one of Goulburn's most sought after locations. All the hard renovation work has been done, at the perfect stage of renovation to decorate to your individual taste.
"Rossneath" is a two storey home of grand proportions designed by the renowned local architect EC Manfred and has the distinction of housing 3 generations of the Manfred family following its original build for Anne Ross in 1881. It is purported that its construction represents the first use of double brick cavity house construction in a Goulburn home. Many of the original interior remain including 8 fire places, mostly with ornate pressed metal and marble surrounds. Original floorboards, polished cedar skirting boards and doors, and high ornate plaster ceilings. In total there are up to 6 bedrooms in the main residence all of which are double sized or larger. The main bedroom boasts a generous 6 x 5 metre layout and includes a Juliet balcony to the eastern facade. There are 3 main living areas, 3 bathrooms, Kitchen, 2 staircases, a laundry, 2 undercover verandahs and a cellar. Copies of the original EC Manfred water colour floor plans and elevations will also be made available to the successful purchaser.
The house as it stands is partially renovated. In more recent times the original stair case has been renewed, electrical and plumbing replaced and the majority of an networked gas fired hydronic heating system has been installed. The current incomplete stage of renovation offers the lucky purchaser the opportunity to sympathetically place their own final styling to the final fixtures and fittings.
Externally there is an original two storey brick structure which has had the 1st floor self-contained occupancy (unrenovated), there is also ample ground floor areas for workshop, storage or garaging use. These improvements sit atop of a generous 1,330 square metre site, in one of the best regarded residential localities overlooking Goulburn.
