heritage gardens with spectacular views of the World Heritage Blue Mountains National
Park & the lights of Sydney.'Silvermere' is a large Mediterranean style country house set in an Acre & a Half of heritage gardens with spectacular views of the World Heritage Blue Mountains National Park & the lights of Sydney.
The house was built in 1923 for the wealthy owners of a Queensland Sugar plantation on land containing the original road over the Blue Mountains (Coxs Rd). The house was designed by the architect & artiest G-J- Waterhouse responsible for the installation of Sydney's Archibald fountain & the design of May Gibb's 'Nutcote'.
In 1998 the present owners purchased the then neglected property & have since completely renovated & restored the house, & gardens. The north-facing house with 14inch thick stuccoed walls are warm & sunny in winter & cool & airy in summer.
