BAROONA - 40 Ha (100 Acres)
A welcoming place of happy domesticity and family life…
Escape to a romantic era of stunning architecture, exotic history and irreplaceable depth and quality.
An amazing piece of Australian history and one of the most notable homes in the state Baroona’s story begins as Rosemont in 1829 when the first stage was built by John Lanarch and Co. on land granted to James Mudie in 1823.
Albert Dangar acquired the property in 1869 and commissioned Benjamin Backhouse to design Baroona retaining the walls of Rosemount.
Further additions include a Morbury Hunt designed service wing in 1885 and stables in 1887.
The tower and spiral staircase were designed by Frederick Menkins in 1893.
Often described as a ‘castle’, the stately home of 26 main rooms sits proudly on 100 acres of grazing country watered by 6 dams and town water, just South of the Hunter Valley town of Singleton and only 15 minutes drive from the Pokolbin Wine Region.
You will be lost in the magic as you approach through the picturesque Jacarandah lined drive to the grand ‘carriage drive’ complimented by a semi circular lawn and signature brick surrounding wall.
The sandstone ‘flagged’ verandah and intricate carved double cedar front doors are the perfect invite into the wondrous home with its stunning cedar joinery, high ceilings ornate plasterwork, original marble and wild rose fireplaces.
An opulent example of high Victorian architecture with an amazing convict built wine cellar, 7 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, an observation tower, swimming pool, glasshouse, billiard room, gate house, carriage house and Victorian gothic stable block ~ the birthplace and final resting place to the famous race horse and winner of 2 Melbourne cups ‘Peter Pan’ 1928-1947.
We invite you to become part of the history and enjoy an incredible journey with this stunning country estate.
