"The Manse" - Where Old World Charm and Modern Luxury Coincide
Bursting with charm and historic appeal, this original federation home circa 1906 has been delicately restored with sophisticated flair showcasing a perfect blend of old world charm and modern luxury living. “The Manse” is a grand residence, perfectly situated on a quiet corner site (1568m2) just minutes' walk to Mullumbimby township. This dream home has a fabulous pool and ample space for entertaining. It is one of the area's most recognisable landmarks. No doubt The Manse is imbued with legacies and richly layered with stories from the past.
This is now the perfect balance of period character and fresh new features. The carefully considered restoration retains many original design details including stained lead-light entry doors, decorative pressed metal walls and ceilings, rosewood flooring, federation timber joinery, original light fittings and brass switches. Not to mention 11-foot ceilings, hipped gable roof and cedar fireplace. The new kitchen has hoop pine cabinetry with two pack finish, granite bench tops, Miele dishwasher and Ilve stove and oven set within the original brick chimney.
The dining and family room areas have natural light streaming through stained-glass windows that overlook the garden. The formal lounge room opens to a large veranda and onto the established gardens and the travertine tiled pool. A new hardwood fence surrounds the property with electric gate entry. The double remote-controlled garage leads to the tiled patio with new garden shed.
The main bedroom has been extended to incorporate a new ensuite and a custom designed dressing room.
The property has dual street access and is incredibly private and peaceful, and only a 15-minute drive to Byron Bay. Every inch of this exquisite residence has been detailed to the highest quality and restored authentically, making it an investment unlike anything else on the market!
