One of regional New South Wales’ most stately historic manors has sold for $2.15 million.

Hurstville, an 1861 country house in Goulburn, was offered through Ray White Goulburn agent Justin Gay, who had held the previous regional record of $1.15 million six years ago with a $1.15 million under 4000 square metres.

The buyers were from farming land at Stubbo, just over a four hour drive north of Goulburn, and purchased the property to be closer to family.

“Farming and earth moving is their history,” Gay said.

“Many years ago the gentleman used to stay around the corner in a big boarding house-like accommodation, and fell in love with Hurstville. He was at the auction of the property when it was derelict and sold previously, and had kept his eyes on it over the years.” 

Sydney-based sellers Peter Caucino and Yvonne Aris extensively renovated Hurstville after purchasing it in 2004 from the Anglican Church, when it was six rundown flats.

The five-bedroom house, on a 2567 square metre parcel of land, contains formal living rooms, two studies, a wine cellar, garden room and vast entertaining terrace.

The interiors feature chandeliers, fireplaces, bay windows, soaring 3.6 metre ceilings, French doors, marble benchtops and stone floors.

The Victorian Italianate house was designed for Anne Hurst, the widow of the wealthy Methodist Minister, The Reverend Benjamin Hurst, who died in 1857.
