There were plenty art pieces hanging throughout the mansion and do I mean many.  In its 136-year history it has had 11 owners and is now owned by Rod Menzies who is a cleaning business tycoon and art auctioneer.  It boasts 10 bedrooms with 15 fireplaces and floor to ceiling windows giving you easy access to the veranda around the first floor of the mansion.
