A glimpse into the past
Grantham Farm holds a rich history that adds layers of depth to its present-day allure.

The very name of the suburb, Grantham Farm, carries the echoes of its evolution. The estate’s roots can be traced back to a subdivision of the original land grant of Riverstone. In 1810, Governor Lachlan Macquarie granted Lieutenant-Colonel Maurice Charles O’Connell a parcel of land that would later become the cornerstone of Grantham Farm. This historic land grant housed a sprawling six-bedroom cottage, complemented by vineyards and other essential outbuildings.
