‘Nyrang Homestead’ 154 Peabody Road, Molong
A fine 1904 Federation style bluestone mansion with links to Banjo Patterson and Cobb and Co coach company.
Nyrang was once a 6,000-acre sheep-grazing property on some of the richest soil on the western side of the Great Divide.
The 12-bedroom house has polished floorboards, high ceilings, 14 fireplaces and stained glass windows.
Nyrang Homestead is regarded as one of the finest examples of Australian Federation architecture and construction.
This 34 room, 120 square mansion is built of bluestone that was hand cut on the property.
