Lindesay, built between 1834 and 1836 for Colonial Treasure Campbell Drummond Riddell, is the oldest surviving residence in Darling Point. It was the home of Surveyor-General Thomas Mitchell in 1841 while he built Carthona. The houses have since passed through the hands of a number of notable Darling Point residents and although the grounds of both have been subdivided, remain significant elements of the harbourside landscape.
