Marshall Baxter has listed Goulburn’s grand Bishopthorpe Manor for sale, after a decade at the 21-hectare estate.

32 Bishopthorpe Lane is a landmark rural property of historical significance, having been carved from bluestone in 1870 as the residence for the first Anglican Bishop of the Diocese of Goulburn. It retains a chapel housed in the original stables, as well as monks quarters.

First National Real Estate Goulburn agent Barry McEntee is marketing the listing as luxurious and full of character, with its multitude of living areas including a grand foyer, formal dining room, billiard room, casual living rooms, library and study.

Located 2 hours' drive from Sydney and an hour to Canberra, other benefits of the Manor are district views, climate control, and a manager's residence comprising a fully self-contained 2 bedroom apartment.

Baxter, an executive running the Baxter’s Boots business his great-grandfather acquired in 1885, originally bought Bishopthorpe in 2007 from liquidators for $2.3 million.
