This exquisite mansion in the enviable suburb of Potts Point is an architectural marvel and has a historical significance that is rarely seen on the property market.

The ‘Jenner House’ was originally designed by prominent Australian architect Edmund Blacket in 1868 for the esteemed Hordern family. In 1881, a third level was added to the residence by Thomas Rowe, another acclaimed architect of the time.

The heritage-listed Regency Revival-style home has served a variety of purposes and has a rich history, including being the home of King George V before he ascended to the throne.

Aside from its blue-ribbon address, prestigious heritage and exquisite design, Jenner House is supremely located to all of life’s amenities. King’s Cross train station is a ten-minute walk from the home, providing direct access to the CBD. As is a ferry wharf and a bus network of four different lines.

While Potts Point only totals 0.7 square kilometres, it is packed with restaurants, cafes, nightlife, grocery stores and boutiques, making this suburb highly sought after. The area also has the highest concentration of Art Deco architecture in all of Australia, making it a marvellous location to simply walk around and take in the beauty.

Jenner House is set across a 1,970 square-metre parcel and showcases an array of truly extraordinary handcrafted antique materials. Eleven original 1800s fireplace mantles all crafted in white Carrera marble and imported from a single French Chateau are just one of its breathtaking features.

Built on solid sandstone foundations with triple layered brick walls, the property features spectacular soaring ceilings measuring four metres. The home retains original Cedar joinery in its elegant interiors, along with Herringbone floorboards, bay windows and French wall panelling which create a sense of regal grandeur in the landmark home.

The informal dining and living areas along with the kitchen are located on the ground floor. The kitchen is a chef’s dream as it incorporates a professional grade Baron oven with a Teppanyaki grill, a Salamander grill, Birko steamer and commercial dishwasher.

Each of the home’s over-sized bedroom suites include built-in robes and full marble ensuites, with each but one featuring striking claw-foot bathtubs. The magnificent king-sized master wing is complete with a spacious master lounge that flows through French doors and onto a private balcony with picturesque harbour views.

A highly versatile sandstone lower level, complete with a wine cellar and tasting room, offers plenty of space for a gym, artist studio and an entertainers’ suite.

The grounds and numerous entertaining decks are perfectly positioned to enjoy the breathtaking backdrop of the boat-studded harbour.
