Dunmore House has been placed on the State Heritage Register.
Environment and Heritage Minister and Maitland MP Robyn Parker will announce the listing of the historic
building at Dunmore House on Friday and present owners Paris and Mitty Osborne with a framed certificate.
The house is one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in the region and was built by convicts in the 1800s.
Mr Osborne was pleased the house had made the list.
“It should be recognised because of its historical importance and it should be acknowledged by the Maitland community,” he said.
He said the listing was important because Dunmore was one of the most important residences in the area.”
The couple have owned the house since 2000 and it has been through a lengthy restoration process.
“There has been a horrendous amount of work with no assistance from anyone and now it is here for the future,” Mr Osborne said.
“It is fitting that the house has made the list because George Lang [the original owner] was a very prominent person in the early years of this area.”
Lang was granted the estate, which he called Dunmore – his mother’s maiden name – and ordered the construction of the house.
When he died in 1825, the house was passed to his brother Andrew.
