Visitors to this notable National Trust house are transported to Paris or other grand European cities. The house is described as "Second Empire" style...popular for 1870's and 1880's grand public buildings in Australian cities...but rare for a private home.The house as visitors see it today is a result of a collaboration between the fabulously wealthy Alexander Robertson and the architect J.A.B. Koch. Both the interior and exterior are lavishly decorated. The interior is extravagently decorated with embossed wall papers and hand decorated ceilings while on the exterior many of the classical motifs such as masks and corinthian columns are repeated. Tours of the interior and exterior are run by volunteer guides. Delicious sandwiches and freshly baked scones are available in the Tea Room.
