With sweeping views of Goulburn’s key landmarks, stretching across the valley and almost to Lake George, this four-bedroom, architecturally designed homestead makes the perfect country retreat.
Agent Gabbi Kalthofen from Luton Properties in Tuggeranong describes 12 Mannifera Place as the kind of home you’d expect to find in the Swiss Alps.
“It’s one of those dream properties,” Ms Kalthofen said.
“People are saying it’s the sort of place they’ve always imagined living in but didn’t even think was real.”
The home is an easy 50-minute drive to Canberra. It’s also 45 minutes from the Southern Highlands and just two hours to both Bateman’s Bay and Sydney.
“Goulburn was the first major inland town in Australia,” Ms Kalthofen explained.
“With great schools, cafes and restaurants, a new public pool and a tight-knit community, it’s one of those places that people are looking at as an alternative to Canberra and Sydney.”
Set over three stunning levels, the home sits on an elevated part of the block backing onto tranquil bushland.
The solar passive property is warm, bright, and character filled.
“In my time of real estate, I’ve never seen a property like this one,” Ms Kalthofen said.
“Replacing it would be almost impossible these days in terms of building materials and workmanship.”

Those materials include generous use of Taralga bluestone and Bundanoon sandstone, with Cedar, Oregon and Blackbutt timbers.
Cathedral ceilings and large, geometric, solar-glazed windows capture the abundance of natural light.
The heart of the home centres around a double-sided, full-height stone fireplace with in-built Cheminees Philippe wood-burner, in the expansive living area and kitchen.
Upstairs is a second impressive living space, two large bedrooms, and a sprawling master aster suite boasting luxurious ensuite, dressing room, private mezzanine, and balcony.
For guests, there is a fully self-contained residence on the downstairs floor. It includes an oversized bedroom, bathroom, full-sized kitchen, and living space.
Add to this a large four-car garage and workshop space, extensive landscaping, rock retaining walls and native plantings, and the offering is breathtaking in every regard.
“Anyone who has walked through has fallen in love with it,” Ms Kalthofen said.
The property will be auctioned on Saturday 9 July.
