This grand Victorian house is believed to incorporate an earlier Georgian residence (c.1833) built by William Cox and was extended in the Victorian Filigree style by Henry McQuade (manager of Her Majesty’s Theatre, Sydney) in 1880. The interior of the house features opulent fittings and furnishings including marble fireplaces, elaborate plasterwork, ballroom and entrance portico. In 1882 a cricket match was held in the grounds between local teams and the All England Eleven and a special train carried 1,000 spectators from Sydney to view the event. The property also included a private race track. The house originally had an entrance from the main road but can still be viewed across the Windsor Golf Course (opened May 1905) from Hawkesbury Valley Way.
