The Buxton Manor is a stunning 1909 restored large Mansion built in the William Morris ‘Arts & Craft’ theme of decorative red brick with steep sloping roof lines. It houses our best collection of Australian antiques and memorabilia and features open log fires, polished spruce floors, decorative fireplaces, marbleized ceilings, rag rolled faux paint finishes, ornate ceiling roses, gilt mirrors and sumptuous antique beds. One of the fathers of the Australian Constitution Sir Josiah Symons lived in the Manor during the winter months, tended by his butler, chauffeur, cook and maids!
Buxton Manor features 4 separate very large apartments and 1 spa cottage, all of which offer private entrances, bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens, unique living areas and valuable rare furnishings.
It is surrounded by half an acre of very manicured, welcoming gardens with masses of old fashioned scented roses, cottage flowers and sweeping lawns. It has been heritage listed by the government and completely restored by your hosts, Rodney & Regina Twiss.
On a warmer day enjoy relaxing in the half an acre of manicured gardens with outdoor designer furniture, umbrella's and 2 wood fire BBQs, or for cooler days request an apartment with an open fire place. Any time of the year you can enjoy a Grand lifestyle at Buxton Manor.
