Graythwaite 5 sml

Originally built in 1833 and one of the oldest remaining structures in North Sydney, this heritage-listed estate has been restored for the use of the School. In a derelict state prior to commencement of works, the project included demolition of non-historic building elements, the restoration and adaption of three buildings, landscaping, civil and external works including palisade fencing, sandstone walls, formal gardens and pavements. Meticulously restored to its former glory, the future of this significant historic building has now been assured.
