Elizabeth Bay Accommodation, Hotels, Restaurants, Cafes, Sydney NSW
The historic house is on Onslow Avenue with panoramic views of the Sydney Harbour. Built between 1835 -1839, the Regency style house was, at the time, the finest of its kind. The interiors are a reflection of the opulent lifestyle that its inhabitants led, a thought-provoking representation of life in the 19th century. Elizabeth Bay house has since been converted to a museum that is open to the public on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
There are additional historical houses that give this suburb a relaxed vibe to it. Ashton is a Victorian Italianate style house built around 1875. Initially developed for clients who led a lavish lifestyle, Ashton is today a heritage-listed building in New South Wales State.
Right opposite Ashton is a two-storeyed home known as Tresco. Built in 1868, the house was the official home of the Flag Officer in charge. One of the best ways to explore this suburb’s history is to visit Boomerang, the best intact estate of its kind located on the foreshores. This heritage-listed house has been used for several films, making it an essential part of Elizabeth Bay.
