A landmark estate upon five acres of beautiful grounds.


Displaying the stylish results of a recent makeover by Fox TVs ‘Selling Houses Australia’, the beautiful Manor House encompasses almost 1,100sqm of living area.  There are 46 rooms, including a ballroom that can seat 100 people, a dining room which accommodates 50, plus 10 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. There is also a self-contained three bedroom cottage, stables with a loft, a glasshouse and machinery shed.


Unquestionably one of the grandest Federation estates in NSW, Old Linton', circa 1857 is a landmark residence unparalleled in grace, style and proportion. The majestic home is embraced by an impressive five acres of established grounds and offers a spacious and private retreat with a refined sense of history. Old Linton was built in the Federation Free style, while the garden is a transition between Federation and Edwardian Arts and Crafts style. The home features Art Deco bathrooms, Art Nouveau window details, marble fireplaces, crystal chandeliers and glass skylights. Both the house and garden are listed on the Register of the National Estate.

The residence was built in 1857 by an emancipated convict, and later home to the legendary sheep baron A. B. Triggs. It now offers an iconic family haven of tremendous pedigree value with character, class and distinction. There are also numerous possibilities with many creative business opportunities including B&B accommodation, a conference centre or an Arts & Crafts outlet.


It is situated in the cold climate wine area of Murrumbateman, which produces award-winning wines and is located just 45 minutes from Canberra and about three hours south of Sydney.
