Your manor awaits
Built in 1833 by William Cox, this Georgian mansion is on the market for the first time in close on 30 years.
What can be said about this stunning mansion that dominates the approach to Windsor from the west?
Just one look conjures up words like romance, mystery, glory, magic... and a whole raft more!
If you are 'to the manor born', thenÂ Fairfield HouseÂ could be the manor where your family can make its mark in history.
This property will also suit a commercial operator looking to open a boutique hotel, day spa, convention centre, aged care facility, nursing home, retirement village or wedding reception venue. Zoned R2 & RE2, the 7822* square meter site allows for multiple uses that allow this grand building to be kept in the manner in it deserves.
Words are not enough to bringÂ Fairfield HouseÂ to life.
As you enter through the vast portico with tessellated tiles, move through the large cedar door with acid-etched, monogrammed glass, and reach the tiled vestibule which opens into the reception room with its own elevated central skylight and yesteryear proportions, you just know this room was designed for entertaining on a grand scale. It was here that Henry McQuade, Manager of Her Majesty's Theatre in Sydney, lavishly entertained his theatrical celebrities from 1866.
Directly opposite the front door and set to the rear of the reception room are a pair of striking windows, where each individual piece of coloured glass is set in place by brass strips and held by brass screws.Â
The reception room walls hold large brackets of Floretine Guilt, originally holding candles to light the area.
Off the reception room is the magnificent drawing room with exquisite ornamental cornices. Australian cedar runs freely in dramatic window frames, architraves and skirting boards. A fireplace of white Italian Carerra marble is a central feature. Being truly Georgian in style the decoration is not over-embellished; it is grand yet stylish.
Fairfield HouseÂ in its heyday sported a cricket oval with a pavilion and a racetrack. A test match between a Hawkesbury 11 and an all-England Eleven was played on that very oval.Â There's a DA for a Tennis Court and direct access to the 18 hole Championship Golf Course next door, just incase you're the sporting type.
A yearning for yesteryear can be found in this unique Hawkesbury property that simply cries out for a commercial operator to step in refurbish, restore and re-purpose a truly magnificent piece of Sydney history.Â
