A place immersed in heritage, Newmarket heralds a new neighbourhood in the heart of Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. Its heritage will be celebrated as we look towards a dynamic future.
You are invited to be a part of it.
“In the development work that Cbus Property are doing, they have captured this essence and that will be our legacy. I think this site has always been a wonderful place to visit. People like coming here. The Big Stable, the homestead and the Sales Ring hold a dear place in many hearts. The shadow of the great fig will remain as a reminder of the racing community spirit, and will spur the stories of great champions that passed through this site every year.” INGLIS FAMILY REPRESENTATIVE Arthur Inglis
Newmarket Stables has been a significant landmark in Randwick racing history, since it was first established in the early 1860s as a 12-room home with adjoining stables. Additional construction was carried out over the decades and in 1887 the Big Stable, as we know it today, was built and has housed thousands of racehorses over the last 130 years.
Cbus Property will honour the history of this landmark by handing it over to council for community use.
This heritage home has had several reincarnations since it began as John Dillon’s Newmarket Hotel in 1861. In 1906 the Inglis family moved their bloodstock operation to the site and over the years this exclusive residence turned into a private space for hire. It will now be restored, and sold as a freestanding home.
For 112 years, William Inglis and Son Ltd ran their renowned bloodstock operation at Newmarket, Randwick. The Sales Ring has seen many of the country’s finest thoroughbreds passing through the ring and onto racing glory. The historic Sales Ring will transform into an interactive playground where children can play and learn, under the shade of the treasured fig tree.
The beautiful gardens are the heart and soul of
this precinct. Magnificent mature fig trees line the
established green gardens. The gardens provide a
perfect palette to build upon. The character of the
formal clipped hedging will remain, along with brick
paths, sandstone paving and climbing plants over built
Layered garden beds add texture and colour, featuring a contemporary mix of native and exotic species. Cbus Property are retaining a total of 59 trees across the whole site. Of which 12 are significant, including Fig trees and Norfolk Pine trees.
