Built in 1901, Fitzroy House is the original homestead and is set within the 240 ha pest fenced Glenfern Sanctuary. The much loved home of the Bouzaid family, Fitzroy House is offered for the first time for families to share and experience this unique location.

This recently renovated homestead offers spacious open living areas with bay windows opening to a large deck, overlooking Fitzroy Harbour. There is a functional modern kitchen complete with gas oven and Stanley wood oven. The dining area adjoins the kitchen and has seating for up to 10. There are five large bedrooms (one with ensuite); two bedrooms have queen beds, the others have singles. The main bathroom has a shower, bath tub, wash hand-basin and toilet, and the master bedroom's ensuite has a shower, wash hand-basin and toilet.

A short stroll from the house accesses the private wharf with floating dock and boat shed which is available for your use. A mooring may be available on request.

  • Everything! Stunning gardens, heritage building, full of history and character

    Everything! Stunning gardens, heritage building, full of history and character. Stunning walkways up through the forest, birdlife galore, fishing off your own private jetty in crystal clear waters. Great family getaway. Many thanks :) We will be back

    A great location and amazing bird life made Fitzroy House a nice break from the city. There was lots for us to do and the kids loved the gardens, fishing from the wharf and the tree houses. However the house is a little tired and could do with an update on areas and especially the kitchen.
