Visit to Rockwall, Potts Point

  • Potts Point Australia

Rockwall, one of the few surviving "Villas of Woolloomooloo Hill" is an early work of John Verge, the most accomplished and fashionable architect in the colony in the 1830s. Designed in 1830, Rockwall was completed in 1837 but suffered a reversal in the 20th century. By the 1960s it was virtually derelict, however, it is now restored as a private residence that retains Verge's characteristic fine detailing and a small but beautiful oval staircase lit by upper level windows. This is a rare opportunity to view both a significant colonial house and a fine, eclectic and interesting furniture collection.
