Grand & Glorious

48 Baker Road, Armidale
This glorious mansion is designed in the American Southern Greek Revival style and is situated on acreage just outside the regional city of Armidale. It was constructed during the 1980s and stands as a testament to the vision of its original owner as well as the craft skills present in the New England at that time.

The primary inspiration for the design came from the famous "Green Leaves" built in 1820 in Natchez, Mississippi USA. The arrangement of internal features was influenced by those found in "Ditchley Park" built in 1720 in Oxfordshire England, along with other notable Scottish and Tasmanian homes of that, and later periods.

Situated on over 10 acres of secluded bushland, the character and scale of the home is not evident from the front gates. Only after rounding a bend in the driveway, and as the home first comes into view does the WOW effect kick in. At that moment, the visitor is confronted by what can only be described as a Georgian mansion of impressive proportions.

The first feature of note is the magnificent front porch with its' wide entry steps and four Doric columns. This leads onto a grand marble entrance hall providing a glimpse of what is contained within, and itself includes many Ionic features.

A handsome library with extensive book cases and friezes provides one of the many focal points of the home. There is also a magnificent companion drawing room which is located across the entrance hall. Both these rooms have glorious open fireplaces and mantles. The adjacent dining room has full height French doors leading onto a deep, full length northern veranda.

Virtually all of the internal cabinetry and mouldings are bespoke and created specifically for this superb home. Even the fluted Doric columns on the northern side have been tapered to avoid an hour glass optical effect when viewed against the sky.

The superb proportions and finishes of the this home can only be appreciated on inspection. The sheer size and scale of the building lends itself to a range of uses. A Grand residence, reception centre, antiques venue or destination restaurant (STCA)? The opportunities are seemingly endless and will attract those of us who march to the beat of a different drum.
