Sydney Open – Manar
Transient

The second house we visited on the focus tours was Manar. This building has a long history in Potts Point and was a home to many prominent members of society. Having previously lived in the area for a number of years it was nice to peek through the gates and see the lovely gardens that sprawl around the four separate apartment buildings. We also saw inside one of the apartments and we particularly admired  the original plaster ceilings with their designs of Port Jackson Figs.
