Take a trip back in time…

By Danielle Banton

South of Watsons Bay and heading back towards the city is the magnificent Vaucluse, known for its harbor side beaches and palatial homes – it is the epitome of luxury. What sets this area apart is the preservation of one of Sydney’s oldest and most beautiful original homes – Vaucluse House  – the property that gave the suburb it’s name.

Sydney-born barrister and novelist John Lang once wrote of Vaucluse House, ‘There is not a lovelier site in the known world’. High praise indeed, just what is it that makes this Historical home so special you may ask? The heritage listed grand estate-turned cultural museum allows the public to gain insight into a bygone era, and to take a glimpse at the historic and cultural nature of Sydney’s early past. A stunning 19th Century property with majestic gardens, parklands, wooded greens, orchards and vineyards. Vaucluse House is the property gem of the suburb…

Vaucluse House began as a stone cottage, built in 1805 by Sir Henry Browne Hayes, an eccentric Irish man, he was transported to NSW for kidnapping an heiress and attempting to marry her by force. He named the property Vaucluse after the village of Fontaine-de-Vaucluse near Avignon in southern France.

Travel where you will the eye will not rest upon any spot more favored by Nature than that exquisite valley which was called Vaucluse. For Property sales in sought after and novel inspiring Vaucluse contact Ray White Double Bay.
