Yester Grange

Yester Grange is an historic house and estate situated in the village of Wentworth Falls, in the Blue Mountains 95 kilometres west of Sydney, Australia. The house has a state heritage listing, it is not known when Yester Grange was built, but the land came into the ownership of prominent Sydney importer and builder John Charles Smith in 1888 and the main residence was most constructed before 1891. The house is built of kauri wood from New Zealand and is surrounded by an estate measuring eight hectares directly above the main waterfall at Wentworth Falls; the house offers stunning views over the Jamison Valley. In 1902 the estate was purchased by NSW Premier Sir John See. See hosted large formal gatherings at the property. After his death in 1907, Yester Grange was retained as a holiday house by his family until 1938, when it was abandoned; the Grange remained vacant until 1944 when it was taken over by local council alderman Margery Anderson and her husband James. James Anderson sold the Grange in 1975 following the death of his wife two years previously.

By now the house and grounds had fallen into disrepair and the new owners and Elizabeth Clarke, set about restoring the Grange to some element of its former glory. The Clarkes had owned a gallery in Sydney and established Yester Grange as a Victorian-period museum, opening the estate to tourism for the first time; until 1999, the place was a popular destination for visitors. Since 1999 the property has been owned by hotel developer Crockett Group. Yester Grange was closed to the general public; as of 2012, the house and grounds were used as a function centre.
