The public can gaze into a medieval world fit for King Arthur during a free open inspection this Saturday of a turreted and moated castle for sale for the first time in Macarthur, 45 minutes south-west of the Sydney CBD.

CamelotBoasting a dungeon, 10 turrets, a bridged moat, waterfalls, gargoyles, stained-glass windows and medieval furnishings, the Camelot-like castle at 4 Dowling St, Leumeah, was built by Englishman, Ron Farmer in 1971 in the Macarthur region, where colonial history only stretches aback to 1805 when pioneering entrepreneur, John Macarthur, settled the area and gave birth to Australia’s agricultural and wine industries.

While aspects of the unusual castle, which took 10 years to build, can be seen from the road and through the wrought-iron gates, the head-turning property is now on Castle - Leumeahsale for the first time through real estate agent, Leumeah United First National, with the first public inspection this Saturday, June 22, from 2.30-3.30pm.

Meanwhile, a grand, 125-year-old castle-like mansion called Camelot, also in the Macarthur region on the outskirts of Sydney is currently playing a starring role in the popular TV drama ‘A Place to Call Home’. The 33-hectare estate on Kirkham Lane in Kirkham plays a prominent role as ‘Ash Park’ in the show, which airs prime time on Channel Seven on Sunday nights.

Built in 1888 by the White Pastoralist family and set amongst Macarthur’s rolling, green pastures near Camden, the 55-room Camelot boasts a fairytale silhouette of turrets, gables and arched verandahs as well as sweeping gardens. The mansion is a private home and closed to the public although it is popular for wedding photography. It was also used in Baz Luhrmann’s epic 2008 film, Australia.
