Penshurst is an iconic fully-restored late Victorian home with a fascinating history. Thanks to the passion and patients of its owners, it was transformed from near demolition to a magnificent home, taking ten years to restore and extend.
The result is an original blend of traditional and contemporary architecture that spans 119 years. The home won the State Heritage Award for Renovation on completion.
The original residence features a formal living, library, cellar, bathrooms and bedrooms. The extension consists of a kitchen, informal living and dining that flows into the existing home. From the views in most rooms to the impressive entertaining and living options, this is a breathtaking home for architecture aficionados.
