With spring in full swing, the end of the year drawing near and signs of the market beginning to stabilise, according to the latest Herron Todd White (HTW) residential report. 

"Let’s reflect on some of the most expensive, biggest and the most weird and wonderful properties sold in the Goulburn region in 2019," the valuation firm said. 

On the market for eight months, this historic 1861-built residence at 244-246 Cowper Street (pictured above) sold for a record $2.15 million in March this year.

This property was originally six rundown apartments and was restored to a single residence in 2004.

The home is a Victorian Italiante country style house that has been extensively renovated internally, features five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a three-car detached garage and is located on 2,567 square metres in arguably Goulburn’s most prestigious blue ribbon precinct.

Despite the general residential and prestige high-end market being notably weaker than previous years, this country mansion is now the most expensive home in Goulburn, topping 15 Abbey Road, Goulburn which sold for $1,802,000 in September 2018.

Sold at auction for $1.07 million in September, this double-storey brick grand old property at 104 Bradley Street (pictured above) is also located within Goulburn’s blue-ribbon precinct.

Set on just under an acre of established parklands, the 1883 residence comprises six bedrooms, two bathrooms and two kitchens.

The historic ornate features throughout include the original slate tile roof, 14 foot ceilings, grand central timber staircase, wrap around verandah and leadlight windows.

"However, we feel the property could be significantly enhanced with some painting and small renovation works to bring it up to 2019, whilst still keeping within the style of that period," the valuation firm said.

The property at 138 Mulwaree Drive, Tallong (pictured above) consists of six large yurt-shaped structures surrounding a central courtyard and can only be described as honeycomb cells from a bird’s eye view.

The residence contains four bedrooms and two bathrooms and features cathedral like ceilings, floor to wall double glazed windows and timber lined ceilings and walls throughout.

The architecturally designed dwelling is located on a heavily timbered 1.33 hectares within the safe gated community of Tallong Park Estate.

Levies by the Tallong Park Association Inc are currently $1,346 per annum which allows the property owners and their invited guests to make use of the nine-hole golf course, tennis courts, 12.5 metre indoor heated swimming pool, bush walking tracks, horse riding trails and picnic areas.
