Dalwood House

Dalwood House is located in the grounds of Wyndham Estate near Branxton in the historic Hunter Region in New South Wales, Australia. It is a National Trust of Australia (NSW) property.[1]

History[edit]

The House was built by George and Margaret Wyndham at their Dalwood Vineyard, with work commencing in 1828 or 1829. It is a single-storey stone house built in the Greek Revival style.[2] The Dalwood Vineyard is said to be the oldest continuous commercial vineyard in Australia.[3]

The Dalwood vineyards are now part of Wyndham Estate.[4]

Over time, the house had fallen into disrepair and in 1983, the Dalwood Restoration Association was formed to preserve and restore Dalwood House.[5]
