Dunmore House is heritage listed

From the Maitland Mercury report:
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.
