1A SHEPHERDS COURT, GOULBURN
HILLSIDE - EXTRAORDINARY OPPORTUNITY IN THE HEART OF GOULBURN
2 Carport spaces
'Hillside' is a significant Georgian style residence in the heart of Goulburn's historic cathedral precinct.
Built in 1844 for the McKellar family, the barred windows in its large basement are testament to its use in those early years as a temporary court house.
The home is of rendered double brick on a stone base, is in excellent condition and has expansive views over the city. The full-width front verandah is a stunning spot to relax and take advantage of Goulburn's refreshingly cool evening easterly at the close of a hot summer's day.
The entrance hall, with magnificent cedar joinery, leads to splendid formal sitting and dining, spacious and light-filled from generous Georgian windows. The fabulous new kitchen is open to casual dining and family areas and a north-facing patio. Two bedrooms (one, the beautiful master bedroom with marble mantelpiece) and a bathroom are also within this central section of the house.
The original kitchen now houses a new, commercial-scale laundry and opens to side porch and carport.
The south-east wing of the home, with separate external access, is utilised by the present owners as approved commercial office space. It was previously a self-contained apartment, consisting of a spacious reception room, bathroom, small kitchen and bedroom with its own charming, "Juliet" balcony, .
At the rear of the house and connected by a protected kitchen courtyard, the original servants' quarters have been converted to a one-bedroom, self-contained flat. The old stables, a charming double-storey stone structure, is now a further single-bedroom flat and includes a lovely upstairs balcony overlooking trees and garden.
'Hillside' is a fantastic return-on-investment opportunity for an astute purchaser. It is a stunning family home, centrally heated and beautifully renovated, retaining original Georgian features.
Sitting on 1,446 square metres, the front and side gardens create a tranquil, private setting. The rear of the property houses utilities such as clothes line and vegetable garden beds and allows access to a rear lane.
In its pre-eminent, absolutely central location and with an array of both residential and commercial possibilities, "Hillside' represents potential very rare within the one, beautiful property.
