Over the past 2 years this property has seen a major overhaul and is most likely in better shape than the day it was built.
A cottage style garden leads to the home where you are first greeted with the traditional bullnose verandah and quirky rat-rod styled front door. Upon entry you get a feel of what 18 Manse Rd is all about with its beautiful high ceilings and skirtings. The original structure has been regenerated and brought back to life with new roof, tasteful floor coverings, fresh paint, new wiring and brand-new plumbing making it the ultimate stone home without the usual drawbacks.
The floor-plan has been well designed and links the new and old parts of the building effortlessly, ultimately giving it that seamless feel. The free-flowing design is amazing from start to finish and begins with the original entrance way which opens to side by-side grand bedrooms, both with original fireplaces, sash windows and built in robes.
