Retford Hall

Italianate mansion built for Anthony Hordern in Darling Point and named after Hordern's mother's birthplace in Nottinghamshire, England. It was built using Pyrmont sandstone at 23 Thornton Street and included seven bedrooms on the first floor, and a morning room, drawing room, dining room and breakfast room on the ground floor. After Hordern's death it failed to sell and remained in the Hordern family for almost a century until it was finally sold and demolished to make way for an apartment building, which retained the name Retford Hall.
