Hillside, built in 1844, is one of Goulburn's very early homes.

"It is a stunning family residence with the added option of potentially three self-contained apartments, perfect for extended family, guest accommodation, commercial premises or rental accommodation," says agent Helen Cheetham.

With a big block of 1446 square metres, this home is a rendered double-brick construction on a stone base, "and is in excellent condition," Ms Cheetham adds. 

"It retains many original, Georgian features, such as magnificent cedar joinery and generous full-length windows providing light-filled interiors and taking advantage of the home's prominent position overlooking central Goulburn's rooftops and tree-scape."

In the main section of the home a large, modern kitchen separates very spacious formal and informal dining and living areas; an open, flowing design that is so advantageous for entertaining.

This central core contains two of the bedrooms - one of which is the master bedroom which features a marble mantelpiece - a very nice bathroom, utility/store room and an enormous laundry with near-level access to the carport. 

The remaining bedrooms are in those three potential apartments; the former servant's quarters, a converted stable, and a space currently used as an office.

The verandah, patios and courtyard create lovely outdoor spaces for both the central residence and these linked apartments, all within an attractive garden setting.

"Hillside is a fascinating property tucked away in the heart of Goulburn's historic cathedral precinct."

That also means it's just a short, easy stroll to all CBD amenities.
