Tallong, New South Wales, Australia
Status: Active

A Southern Highlands estate of unrivalled pedigree, scale and prestige.

Immaculately restored historic mansion situated on large scale holding with over 2,300 acres of prime agricultural land.

One of Australia’s most significant and outstanding country estates, Glenrock’s historical importance is well documented and cannot be overstated. Situated an easy one hour-forty-five-minute drive from Sydney or c. 20 minutes by helicopter, Glenrock is one of the Southern Highlands’ largest landholdings on over 2,300 acres owned to dual road frontages, giving it a strategic advantage over all its peers in privacy, security and future subdivision (if ever desired).

The extraordinary main house has been restored by the present owners to an unimaginably high standard during over 12 years of continuous restoration works. In addition to being historically significant, Glenrock is known as one of the most striking and extraordinary homes in the Southern Highlands:

“This magnificent colonial building, with its mature gardens, eighteen fluted columns and cedar joinery, is regarded as one of the most impressive buildings in the Southern Highlands. Unfortunately it is now privately owned and cannot be seen from the road.” [Sydney Morning Herald, 8 February, 2004]

The main house is complemented by over 5 acres of park-like grounds, all lit and irrigated, and by both historic and newly constructed buildings and facilities. These include abundant accommodations for guests and staff and the five-storey clock tower which houses one of the Sydney CBD’S earliest clocks and contains a viewing platform showcasing this incredible property from every beautiful angle.

With 650ML of perpetual water licences and two private lakes, almost one million litres of freshwater storage and excellent improved lush green pastures, Glenrock is one of the country’s leading breeders of prime Angus cattle. With separate manager’s residence, stables building with tack and saddlery, guest and operations complex, extensive garaging, workshop, storage, stock yards etc, the sheer weight of facility is unfathomable and the features innumerable.

Glenrock has had only 5 owners in its over 200-year history. It is far more than a generational holding and presents as an opportunity of the very rarest kind.

· The Highlands’ grandest estate and a landmark property unparalleled in grace, style and historic importance.

· The stately mansion showcases a shining example of Georgian and Greek Revival architecture.

· It rests amid more than 900ha of fertile land ideal for extensive grazing of both cattle and sheep along with opportune cropping for livestock fodder.

· Beautifully established grounds feature stunningly lit parklike gardens, tranquil nooks and rolling lawns.

· The estate includes the main house, a manager’s residence, a 19th-century guest house, ten stables with tack and saddlery, a five-storey clock tower with viewing platform and operations complex. Along with a hay shed, machinery shed, eight car garage and a drive in Japanese style boat house.

· Extensive livestock facilities include 2 sets of cattle yards and laneway systems for low stress and easy management of livestock.

· Water security is unrivalled in the district with two private lakes (one of 48-acres) with water jet fountain, frontage to two creeks and 650ML of perpetual water licences which can never be revoked. The dwellings also have nearly one million litres storage for fresh, filtered water.

· Excellent improved pasture with ability to increase carrying capacity, it ranks as one of the country’s leading breeders of prime Angus cattle.

· This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This estate is truly one of a kind.

· Future-proof with subdivision development opportunity including ready access to infrastructure and kilometres of dual road frontage.

· This transcendent property which is less than two hours drive from Sydney’s CBD has had only five owners in over 200 years. The opportunity to acquire it is unlikely to present itself again.
