Elizabeth Bay House

Greek Revival villa considered the finest in the colony. It is constructed of Marulan sandstone and Australian cedar and blackbutt and is perfectly aligned to the position of the sunrise at the winter solstice so that the rising sun bisects the house from front to rear doors. Its garden was once known internationally for its collection of rare species though after subdivision only the grotto remains.
