About the event

Built in 1877-78 for Arthur Renwick doctor, politician and philanthropist, the house was named in honour of Sir Walter Scott’s baronial mansion Abbotsford in Scotland.

It later passed through various owners including Albert Edward Grace (one of the founders of Grace Brothers) and the Nestle company.

Today the building retains many original features including spired cupolas, colonnaded verandahs and iron-lace balustrading within a park like setting down to the Parramatta River.

Hear from the owners how they have restored this significant part of Sydney’s heritage while you view the details of the interior architecture and design.

Visitors are invited to enjoy refreshments on site.
