We did a lot of restoration of the timberwork inside and we replaced some of the stained glass windows.”Mr Mau said the formal dining room was his favourite part of the restored home. “It has a fireplace and we had an amazing antique mahogany table in there so we could host dinner parties with 20 or so people sitting at the table,” he said. The home also has a wraparound veranda, formal and informal reception rooms and a classic kitchen with granite benchtops. The master bedroom has walk-in robes, a powder room and a marble ensuite, while two of the other bedrooms have walk-in robes. A “secret” staircase leads to a wine cellar and there is a separate guesthouse on the property. “It is an amazingly quiet and relaxing place to live,” Mr Mau said.“The neighbours are a good distance away and there is lots of wildlife about.” 142 Airlie Rd, PullenvaleA century-old manor house that was once a ladies college is on the market in Pullenvale.
