Forbes’s finest stately homestead known as “Mercedes House” will be offered for sale by auction on the 4th October by Landmark Harcourts agent, Ainslie Toole. This is likely to set a new record for the district.
“Mercedes House” is sure to impress with its generous dimensions, elegant appointments and stunning capacity to entertain. It is ideally situated with just a short stroll to the CBD, lake, pools, schools, cafes and hotels. It features 11 bedrooms in total. The grand central entrance hallway has retained original porcelain tiles and chandeliers that leads onto four luxurious double bedrooms that each open out to expansive verandahs.
Discerning travellers can also enjoy the comforts of a self-contained apartment on the lower level. With six bedrooms upstairs and the third bathroom plus a kitchenette, there is plenty of room for a family/extra accommodation for the business to expand.
Multiple entertaining areas include a formal dining and living room plus another living/dining room in both the upstairs level and in the apartment with an open plan modern kitchen/dining nook available for guests. There is also an attractive covered entertaining area by the pool with many spots to relax and enjoy the gardens.
In 1984 “Mercedes House” was purchased by the current owners, Michael and Denise Jelbart. It was an exceptional private residence for their family and in recent years since they became empty nesters they decided to operate it as a Bed & Breakfast business which is thriving.
The owners have made friends from all around the world through exceptional repeat business and have said that it has been a privilege to have owned and lived in “Mercedes House” for 34 years.
They are selling to retire and travel.

Ian Simpson and Co has an impressive track record with auctions, following on from their March auctions held last week at Condobolin, Lake Cargelligo and Forbes. Ian Simpson and Co. held eight auctions over three days with a 50% clearance rate achieved. At Condobolin, the property at 8 Alldis Street sold under the hammer, as did 107 Flint Street, Forbes and 255 Farnell Street, Forbes. One of the properties at 8712 Lachlan Valley Way Forbes sold prior to auction.
Ian Simpson said, “We had a total of 19 registered bidders and a 50% clearance rate. Good inspections have followed for the properties that didn’t sell and we are confident a successful result will follow soon. We were pleased with the large attendance at all auctions and this shows that there is considerable interest in these two local markets at the present time, with buyers coming from both locally and surrounding areas.”
“I would like to congratulate our vendors and purchasers, wishing them all the best and huge thanks for their support. The buyers are becoming more comfortable and confident with our auction process which is great to see. The auction process enables the vendors to complete a sale within a shorter timeframe and with Open for Inspections, enables prospective buyers the opportunity to have a good look at the property prior to buying.”
Ian said, “I am pleased with this overall result for the year, as we have held 10 auctions with six sold, which is a 60% clearance rate. Our next round of auctions takes place on 19th and 20th April with five properties being auctioned.”
