“Rupertswood” is one of Australia’s most important mansions, both historically and architecturally. Built as a residence for Sir William John Clarke, (first Australian born Baronet), in 1874-76 it became a power seat in the great English tradition. The property covered an area of 31,000 acres. Today the estate has been reduced to 1,100 acres. “Rupertswood” is a 50 room mansion built in the Italianate style, surmounted by a 100 foot tower.
Today the mansion has undergone extensive restoration, reinstating elaborate Victorian colour and decorative schemes, and operating as a boutique hotel. With Butlers, Doormen, a high level of service and food, “Rupertswood” is an experience only found in the great houses of England.
