One of ‘s finest examples of Georgian architecture, the historic Fernhill estate at Mulgoa, has found a buyer.
The agreed price remained undisclosed on Friday afternoon, but it is expected to settle at close to the $30 million guide set by agent Ken Jacobs, of Christie’s International .
While the deal is yet to exchange, a statement from the vendor said, “the only information we can provide is a party, who intends to occupy the property, is in exclusive due diligence as at today.”
The 383-hectare estate is best known for its recent role hosting dates and last year’s finale of reality television series The Bachelor and as the former home of property tycoon Warren Anderson before bankruptcy forced him out and the keys were handed to financier Angas Securities in 2011.
Reports at that time say former prime minister Paul Keating and his family once spent a summer holiday there.
Businessman Simon Tripp and his wife Brenda were reported as buyers in 2012 after he lodged a caveat on the title claiming an interest.
The Greek Revival homestead with its classic colonnaded porch is set high on the hill and was built in the 1840s for Edward Cox, of the Blue Mountains pioneer family. It remained in the Cox family until 1896 when it was sold to the Wright family, of the Wright, Heaton and Company carrying firm.
“It was one of the early land grants by Macarthur and it has so much rich history behind it,” Ken Jacobs told Domain Prestige last year when it was first listed.
The eight-bedroom homestead has a 16-seater dining room and a ballroom, and comes with additional cottages, a swimming pool, a lake, a 2400 metre horse racing track, stables, and equestrian facilities for dressage, show jumping and eventing.
The original stables were home to two Melbourne Cup winners, Chester in 1877 and Grand Flaneur in 1880, and the sandstone building next to them dates back to 1812.
