We are delighted to be instructed to auction "Wyadra" in Brisbane Grove, near Goulburn. Historic homes of this type on 22 acres within 4 kms of Goulburn Post Office are rarely offered and highly sought after. This is the first time "Wyadra" has been offered in 30 years and it is ready for a new life as a wonderful family home, or as a quality country retreat (Sydney 2 hours or Canberra 1 hour).
The current owners believe the house was designed by noted Goulburn architect EC Manfred. It was built in 1891 during the Late Colonial Boom and is listed on the NSW State Heritage inventory, with this description - "Wyadra resembles earlier architectural styles although assumes a much grander, ornate appearance incorporating elements of the Italianate and filigree forms of the later Victorian Boom' period. The property is significant because much of the original fabric of the building had been retained, and it is part of the original Brisbane Grove historical landscape". For the last 130 years, and to this day, all six of Wyadra's nearest visible neighbours are residences built during this same period, or earlier in the 1800's.
The house features three quite different facades on the northern, eastern and western sides with opportunities from all aspects to relax or entertain while taking in the attractive, expansive garden and the sweeping views north to Goulburn City and 180 degrees to the south. There is a clay tennis court and established orchard to complement its garden setting. The house oozes character and charm with its high ceilings, polished original flooring, slow combustion wood heating, a number of wonderful windows, large living rooms and a grand main bedroom. It is a double brick construction with slate roofing and four small to medium verandahs, and a grapevine covered rear outdoor area. The outbuildings include two attached small brick garden sheds, the laundry, an optional studio/gym/bedroom or teenage retreat, and a combined single car garage and store room (in poor condition).
The house does require some love and craftsmanship to bring it back to its original beauty.
