- Register of the National Estate, City of Sydney Council Heritage List
Originally one of the area's great mansions, this Victorian Georgian-style building, at 300 Liverpool Street, has since been converted into six apartments. Heritage recommendations include retaining and conserving internal room layouts, ceilings, cornices, flooring, joinery and fireplaces.
In the 1980s you could have bought a slice of the sandstone building for around $40,000 to $65,000. But in March this year a three-bedroom, two bathroom apartment with two car-spaces sold for $1.045 million, while a one-bedroom apartment sold in May for $420,000.
I don't like the building much anyway; it looks rather gloomy and the front garden and verandas have no privacy.
