What is St Andrews Day?

About Us!
Overnewton Castle was built by William Taylor in 1849. The Scotsman bought 13,000 acres of rich grazing land just west of the Keilor township. Taylor built a simple single-story bluestone colonial-style homestead. This consisted of 6 rooms with large shuttered windows and wide verandahs. The homestead was positioned on a gentle slope overlooking Keilor and afforded extensive views of the surrounding countryside. It was not until William Taylor returned from a trip to Scotland in 1859 that the grandeur of his dreams became apparent. He set about turning the functional colonial homestead into a miniature Scottish Baronial Castle. The Stately two-storied wing was added, along with the blue stone Dairy & Butcher Shop and the Private Billiard room.
William Taylor and his wife Helen, together with their family of six sons and four daughters lived in the homestead attended by up to fifteen staff.

Fun fact: The suburbs we know today as Taylor’s Lakes and Taylors Hill were named after Mr. Taylor himself.
