Aberglasslyn is a rapidly expanding suburb of Mailtand.

Originally known as "The Country Estate", Aberglasslyn was surrounded by paddocks and bushland which has since been developed into numerous sub-divisions.

Aberglasslyn provides views of the hills of Maitland Vale and Rosebrook and is situated near the Hunter River. The bushland that now remains has been listed as a nature reserve.

Historic Aberglasslyn House (circa 1840), a private residence, looks over a bend in the Hunter River and is built completely out of sandstone.

Aberglasslyn House is one of the most important early Colonial homes in Australia.

With its vast cellars, this early stone mansion has the potential to become the only "chateau style" boutique vineyard in the Hunter.

It was built by George Hobler, and designed by John Verge who was born in Christchurch, Dorset, England.

The name is said to be a combination of "Aberdeen" and "Glasgow", though it is more likely to be from the place in Wales so called - Aberglaslyn.
