It was originally owned by the Australian Agricultural Company (AACo) as part of their land holdings between Nundle and Attunga, on the western banks of the Peel River, near Tamworth.

It was sold by the Peel River Land and Mineral Co (a subsidiary of the AACo) in 1905 at auction, representing the first time the property had changed hands since settlement. It was acquired by the Hoban family who went on to build the homestead in 1906.

 “Glenholme is an opportunity that is very hard to match. The Federation homestead is set in an idyllic garden setting, complemented by 85.43 hectares of country ranging from alluvial river flats to open grazing farming land and secure water. This makes Glenholme a very unique opportunity, the perfect lifestyle property,” said Ray White Tamworth agent Riley Gibson.
