1830s River House Film Location

1830s River House

Lower Macdonald, NSW, 2775

Just a whisper from Sydney (75km), this 1830’s sandstone homestead is set on 150acres of (working) farmland, complete with cattle, horses, goats, ponies, chooks, alpacas and sheep. 

Covered inside and out in sandstone, this gorgeous homestead is a step back in time. Modern appliances and features (such as fans!) in the wooden kitchen and 2 beautiful, renovated bathrooms (which feature stone floors and a freestanding bathtub). A spiral staircase leads up to 4 well lit bedrooms decorated with neutral colours to compliment the stone walls, one with a large 4 poster bed. Wainscoting throughout the main areas of the homes such as the dining room and bedrooms as well as white, panelled ceilings add to the old charm of this big home. Original fireplaces juxtapose the modern elements and furnishings in the home, amplified by the availability of natural light.

The porch overlooks the sprawling fields and paddocks, spying down the stone stairs to the luxury, stone, in-ground pool and manicured lawns. This property wouldn’t be complete without the dressage arena, round (outdoor) horse pen and stables (as well as a large black barn with a chicken mural). The acreage is surrounded by the picturesque Macdonald river, a beach down by the river perfect for camping films and a jetty which is ideal for the typical American summer holiday scenes!
