“THE LODGE” – A rare and stunning mansion on a substantial allotment …
A Historical mansion built by BHAS in the early 1900’s as the “Directors Lodge” which was also a residence for visiting company management and guests from interstate and overseas.
The original orchard and some of the grounds have since been redeveloped but the home remains on an allotment of over 4,000m2 among impressive trees and gardens.
