Nestled within the north-eastern foothills of Goulburn’s historic Rocky Hill just minutes from the heart of Goulburn’s CBD you will be captured by the way this architecturally designed home harnesses the tranquillity of country life whilst retaining the convenience, just over the hill and out of sight, of living close to town.

Engineered using passive solar design concepts, this unique home is designed for sustainability, comfortability and live-ability. And by using techniques to direct sunlight and heat, the home achieves a lighter carbon footprint without compromising on comfort or aesthetics.

At its highest point you will notice the 3 bedroom cottage constructed circa 1880 that has been artfully woven into the newer wing of the home. Together they emerge gradually from the hillside, complementing the surrounding environment. With a strong attention to detail, the home incorporates double glazed timber windows throughout – highlighting its passive solar signature. A centrepiece is the large wood heater that can be augmented by three reverse cycle air conditioners ensuring comfort all year round. Water is supplied from 93,000 litres of rain water tanks, and town water is also available.

Across the 306 square metres (approx) of living space, you will find three large open-plan living areas. First, a large timber kitchen that incorporates a walk-in pantry that would please most domestic and professional chefs with two dish drawers and vegetable sink. Flowing from the kitchen into the dining area you will notice the breathtaking cathedral ceilings that slope and converge on a strong central beam, marking the division of the living spaces. At their lowest point the ceiling beams meet with floor to ceiling windows that look out onto the rose garden and ornamental grape vines framing the verandah. Separated from the main living area is a sitting room with 180 degree views of the Charles valley, perfect for quiet pursuits. Just next door sits the main bedroom with an even more impressive view as it sits elevated above the valley, complete with walk in wardrobe and ensuite. The third space can be found at the centre of the historic 1880 pise cottage that is suited to a quiet getaway, a teenagers retreat, or a space for guests to enjoy.

There are 6 generously sized bedrooms, a large three-way main bathroom, a spacious laundry that includes a drying cupboard, and ample storage area located on the ground level. 

On a fine day, two outdoor areas are ideal for entertaining guests – both situated in the carefully manicured gardens encircled by dry-stone walls, landscaped and planted by the current owner whose experienced eye has ensured the garden will complement the surroundings and yield blooms and foliage all year round.

The home sits on 6.217 hectares/15.362 acres of mostly cleared land with a full size 60m x 20m dressage arena. It is zoned in the B6 Enterprise corridor with three road frontages and with this land there is plenty of potential for future development (STCA).

Unique homes such as this are a true rarity. Design, sustainability, location, convenience and potential for future development – it has much to offer!

Great Personal Approach

Graeme Welsh truly deserves recognition for their ongoing work and dedication over the past few years. Graeme Welshes is a family owned, operated and independent agency that has been working in Goulburn and surrounds for over 20 years. This results in clear, concise communication amongst all employees. We have 20 rental properties with this Agency and they have taken the time to get to know all tenants individually. They are always upbeat, look for positive outcomes or compromises in difficult circumstances, and focus on the good. All requests are undertaken with a confident, graceful determination and working towards mutually agreeable outcomes for all parties. As they have taken their time getting to know the tenants, they are able to take a personal approach when it comes to communication or actioning requests. Quiet frequently, the Agents will attend the property to carry out small works to save tenant charges or additional maintenance costs to the Owners. Through their dedication, they continue to develop and foster relationships with tenants, landlords and the community affording further opportunities to all.

Testimonial from Dr Barbara Henderson Smith

Graeme Welsh Real Estate has managed my rental property in Goulburn since 2010. In the past eight years, the rental management team selected excellent tenants who looked after the house and grounds to a high standard and supervised every detail of the day to day running of the property, caring for the tenants needs and arranging for maintenance when required.

I decided to sell the property this year and could not have been happier with the service provided at Graeme Welsh. The property sold quickly at a good price.

I would recommend the team at Graeme Welsh Real Estate to anyone needing a property manager or looking to sell a property in Goulburn.
