The sandstone manor looks something out of a fairy tale, blending elegant tradition with modern landscaping and design.

It may be the sheer size of this waterfront property in Sydney that initially captivates you, but once you get a closer look at its Victorian- Italianate architecture, you’ll realize just how impressive this home, built in 1868, truly is. The sandstone manor looks something out of a fairy tale, blending elegant tradition with modern landscaping and design. Inside, the home has been modernly restored, while still retaining an old-world charm visible in its ornate crown moldings, chandeliers and marble floors. There are eight bedrooms, two offices, two kitchens, a boathouse, a wine cellar with room for hundreds of bottles, an expansive lawn and a separate apartment (formerly stables) for staff. Each room looks out on Sydney’s bustling harbor, or you can enjoy the buzzing waterfront from the home’s small gazebo.
