Create a sense of space,
with a sense of history

Each lot gives you the opportunity to build a country home with a wonderful feeling of space. With the heritage of the Manse carried through the estate, the feeling of history is always there, even in your new home.

Where modern living
is steeped in history

Sitting atop the hill, the beautiful bluestone Manse homestead forms the centerpiece of the estate. Eighteen newly formed lots surround it, each with the kind of views that will make your heart sing.

With all lot sizes between 4000 and 4700 sqm, you’ll have a feeling of relaxed country living with loads of space and privacy. Your large garden will be framed by homestead style fencing, continuing the classic homestead look of the Manse throughout the estate.

You’ll be among a community of likeminded others that embrace the heritage of the Manse, and retain its characteristics of quality, elegance and country charm in their own homes.

The story of
The Manse

The Manse dates back to the early days of Victoria’s history, when it was commissioned by George Russell, an influential figure in colonial times. Russell, manager of the Clyde company and patron of the Golf Hill Estate, was also responsible for other significant buildings in the area, including the church at the gate to Golf Hill which still stands today. He engaged leading Geelong architects of the time, Davidson & Henderson, to design the homestead at The Manse, which was completed in 1872.

Made from local bluestone, with carefully crafted details in the masonry, the beauty, elegance and stature of this heritage-listed building pervades the entire estate. With such a strong link to the past on your home soil, you’ll get a feeling of being part of a deeper story, connecting you with the land and your local area.

Not too far away
but far enough

Positioned away from noisy roads and cities, this is a place to unwind in the idyllic peace and serenity of the countryside. And yet, even though it feels like you’re away from it all, you can still walk to the local primary school, public hall, recreation reserve, tennis courts and historic church. Plus, as the surrounding townships continue to grow, so will your amenities, which means living in Shelford is only going to get better.
