Buxton Manor is a glorious, large Mansion built in 1908 in the William Morris 'Arts & Craft' theme of decorative red brick with steep sloping roof lines and beveled diamond shaped, lead lighted windows, surrounded by half an acre of very manicured, welcoming gardens with masses of old fashioned scented roses, cottage flowers and sweeping lawns. It has been heritage listed by the government and completely restored by your hosts, Rodney & Regina Twiss.

It houses our best collection of Australian antiques and memorabilia and features open log fires, polished spruce floors, decorative fireplaces, marbleized ceilings, rag rolled faux paint finishes , ornate ceiling roses, gilt mirrors and sumptuous antique beds. It lies in the heart of the exclusive historic area of North Adelaide, part of the City of Adelaide.

We loved the ambiance and history of the manor. No request was too difficult. We were treated very well and want to go back again soon.
