The history of this grand residence, Old Linton, is colourful and its heritage rich. Envisage yourself and your family becoming part of the story and its prosperous future. The present grand residence has grown from a generously proportioned cottage of simple design built by a young Jewish emancipated convict in 1857. In its second lease of life, as the home of JP Ritchie and his family, it became known as ‘Linton’ in recognition of Ritchie’s birthplace. In its third, one of Australia’s greatest pastoralists, AB Triggs, built most of what stands today - a vast and grand country residence. Later in its life the home was gifted to the Returned Services League and became a refuge for war veterans after World War II. Following the relocation of this facility across the road, Linton was resold into private hands to become known as ‘Old Linton’. These private owners have each developed and maintained the original in keeping with its heritage. During and between each lease of life, Old Linton has seen the rise and fall of prosperity, two world wars and a host of lesser ones. It has survived two major economic depressions. Through all it has stood as a quiet and elegant witness.
The history of Old Linton is evident, and so are the possibilities. There is a very exciting opportunity to develop a superb, flat, separate 4000m2 parcel, which is zoned B6 by Yass Valley Council. The zoning offers potential for a wide range of commercial and residential developments with no minimum block size set for housing. Do not let this opportunity pass you by.
