One of Sydney’s truly iconic homes, the ‘Jenner House’, offers heritage and scale set upon a 1970sqm parcel of Potts Point with sweeping views of the harbour, Clark Island and the headland.

Designed by Australian architect Edmund Blacket in 1868 for the Hordern family the residence added a third storey in 1881 by Thomas Rowe.

Delivering 6-bedrooms, 8-bathrooms, and 5-car parking across four levels, the property showcases an array of antique materials including 11 1800s fireplace mantles crafted in white marble – imported from a single French Chateau.

Built upon a sandstone foundation, with triple-layered brick walls the home sees soaring ceilings between 3.8m-4m, original cedar joinery alongside Herringbone floorboards, bay windows and French wall panelling.

Inside the residence enjoys a chef’s entertaining kitchen with a professional-grade Baron oven, Teppanyaki grill, Salamander grill, Birko steamer, pasta cooker and commercial dishwasher.

All of the impressively scaled bedrooms include full marble ensuites with claws foot bathtubs and built-in robes. The king-sized master suite is completed with a master lounge that connects through French doors onto a verandah that soaks in the harbour view.

Below the home’s three levels lands an underground sandstone wine cellar, tasting room, artist’s studio and entertainer’s suite.

Further, the home is DA approved for a pool and alfresco entertaining area.

The sale of Jenner House represents a rare opportunity to own one of Sydney’s most notable properties in the luxurious blue-ribbon enclave that is Potts Point. As such, the home enjoys boutique fashion and some of the city’s finest dining at its doorstep.
