This is Elizabeth Bay House. Just outside of Potts Point (in the Elizabeth Bay area, where the house obviously gets its name from), the house has stood here proudly since it was constructed in 1839. When it was built, it was known as 'the finest house in the colony'. It was built for NSW Colonial Secretary Alexander Macleay. The house's facade is severe, owing to its incomplete nature: like many colonial houses begun in the late 1830s, the house is unfinished, the victim of Macleay's growing financial distress and the severe economic depression of the 1840s.
Macleay was also a keen botanist and collector, his extensive entomological collections formed the basis of the Macleay Museum at the University of Sydney.
Macleay's money troubles forced the family out of the house only a few years after it was finished, they were out by 1844. The house became home to a succession of tenants and served as a reception centre.
By the 1950s the grand rooms of the house had been subdivided into flats and was falling badly into disrepair. Thankfully the building was spared the fate of most of the other grand colonial mansions and was refurbished in 1977 to become the official residence of the Lord Mayor of Sydney.
In 1980 the house was taken over by the newly established Historic Houses Trust.
