The former mansion, associated buildings and surrounding parkland has had a long and interesting history. It has been a boy’s school, sanatorium, prisoner of war camp and a golf course for 109 years. It has even been visited by Royalty.

For the next 22 months, RJK Properties will manage the estate. Providing a variety of art & craft and wellbeing classes, exhibitions and concerts. Their plan is to turn the Mansion into a dynamic and creative centre of the community.
