'Tresco' Historic Waterfront Estate

One of Sydney's most historic, beautifully preserved waterfront estates, Tresco is a magnificent example of early Victorian Italianate architecture, privately nestled in the exclusive Elizabeth Bay Loop. Designed in 1868 by leading architect of the day Thomas Rowe and built by Italian stonemasons, the grand sandstone manor was, until early this century, used by the Naval Officer-in-Command of the Royal Australian Navy.

Retaining its architectural integrity, the residence boasts stately proportions, incorporating up to eight bedrooms, two studies, regal entertaining spaces and two kitchens. A two-bedroom self-contained caretaker's flat sits above the garage while the former stables have been transformed into generous office and cellar space.

Opening to expanses of level lawn ideal for grand-scale events, the expansive property cascades down to superb waterfront facilities including a private sea pool, a jetty and boat house. Capturing one of the most breathtaking uninterrupted northerly harbour panoramas you will experience anywhere in Sydney, It gazes across the water to Clark Island and the Manly skyline.

With freestanding residences an exceptionally rare luxury in Elizabeth Bay, Tresco presents a peerless offering of immense historical significance.
