Mornington is one of the finest residences on Sydney Harbour steeped in history and is a statement of class and character for any discerning family seeking to reside in the quiet and exclusive suburb of Hunters Hill.
A classic piece of Sydney history. This federation marine villa was designed and built to house the gentry of early Sydney and enjoys a majestic frontage to the Lane Cove River.
Its residents approached the house by ferry along the river to a stone wharf, until roads were paved from Sydney town some years later.
The second owners, who purchased the home in 1918, were the industrialist Meggiit family, founders of the linseed oil industry in Australia and pioneers of profit sharing in industry.
The third and current owners of Mornington have painstakingly restored and modernized the residence and grounds over the last 10 years and are offering it fully furnished.
