This beautifully presented and private sanctuary holds a coveted position on a generous allotment of some 947sqm. Built in 1894, Mawarra is a five-bedroom family home filled with prestige, character and grandeur.

The home is set back from the road with a facade that provides just a glimpse of the character and craftsmanship that can be found throughout the house.
