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 families to share and experience this unique location.
This 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 wharf with floating dock and boat shed which is available for your use. A mooring may be available if booked in advance.
