Ellerslie was built in 1913 as a family home, which quickly became the first guest house for people all over NSW, and afterwards became the local post office and telephone exchange for the area, where the eldest daughter Elsie carried on this business. The property has been in the family ever since.
The house is situated at front of the property with lake views.
