Built in 1870, a grand mansion located in the heart of the historic town of Mannum on the banks of the Murray River is looking for new custodians.
Touted as one of Mannum’s “finest manor”, the property at 1 McLaren St has been “perfectly preserved” by its current owner.
According to selling agent Andy White of Real Estate Agents Group who is presenting the property to market, the four-bedroom manor is one of the three iconic properties that was once home to The Randells, the pioneers of the paddle steamer trade industries.
“One of the Randell brothers once resided here. It’s a beautiful home with spectacular views,” Mr White said.
“While the property has been lovingly maintained by the present owners, its location is also a highlight. It is close to all facilities and a stone’s throw away from the river.
“Since it resides into a hill, it offers vehicular access both at the bottom as well as top of the home.”
The two-storey stone manor has an unmistakeable old world charm and delights with its high ceilings, decorative period ceiling roses, open fireplaces, stately mantelpieces and spacious rooms.
The master bedroom has an ensuite and plenty of storage space. French doors from the bedroom also lead on to a three-sided verandah – the perfect spot to sit back, sip on a drink and soak in the views.
The manor has been upgraded to keep up with modern times while being mindful of its heritage. Apart from extensive rewiring, a 6 kilowatt solar system is in place as well.
The kitchen has undergone renovation as well and boasts solid Tasmanian Oak benchtops, state of the art appliances and French style doors with ornate fretwork.
There’s a private courtyard as well as a charming country garden and a pergola too.
