Room to move

There’s plenty to please on this magnificent Wisemans Ferry Road property at Somersby in New South Wales.


At the very heart of Somersby, and just 3 minutes to the M1, sits this jewel of a property. Situated on 33 mostly flat and cleared acres, magnificent gardens surround the delightful 1885 period homestead, which features high ornate pressed metal ceilings, four generous bedrooms including an attic bedroom complex, four bathrooms, a large country style kitchen and family room, separate formal drawing room, wood fireplaces, a luxurious main bathroom, verandahs, an expansive covered outdoor entertaining area, and three garages.

With commanding views to the east over the beautifully manicured grounds, this property exudes a timeless sense of warm, peaceful, comfortable country living. The home and grounds lend themselves to weddings and special functions, and there have been three weddings held there in recent times.

The facilities for horses are excellent and include over 20 fenced paddocks, multiple shelters, rainwater supply to troughs in each paddock, sand arenas, a jump area, and a 20-metre diameter round yard.


A functional and roomy shed includes new steel framed stables, a kitchen, laundry, bathroom, tack and feed room, and heavy and light equipment storage areas. There is a hot water horse washing facility along with washing machines for the horse rugs. A high-capacity solar system has recently been installed on the roof of the shed to provide power across the property.

The sand arena lighting is courtesy of individual solar batteries on each light pole, providing continuous lighting for up to four hours. The property also has 3-phase power connected.

The water sources are plentiful. There’s a large dam as well as a separate spring fed dam to which a high capacity, near-new multiple stage pump is connected. This pressurised water feeds all irrigation across the property and could also be used to fill some of the tanks, currently connected to rainwater down pipes on both the shed and the home.
