After 25 years restoring old houses (mainly in England and Italy), Liz was looking for a Sydney building with the appropriate age, grace and grandeur to house her fine collections of English and Australian antique furniture, her Persian rugs, her baby grand piano et al. And this stunning, almost baronial, Victorian mansion more than fits the bill, complete with ballroom for the baby grand, ceiling picked out in gold leaf.....

.... Everywhere you look there is something to admire: parquet flooring, original stained glass, beautiful 1880s tessellated tiles in the hall. Liz not only generously shares her possessions with her guests, but encourages you to treat the place as home. The kitchen and breakfasting area are open-plan. Make yourself coffee or tea whenever you want (hot water constant in the zip). Continental breakfast is served on the large deck in fine weather and there are plenty of other spaces where you can settle with a book: the marble-topped circular table and chairs on the downstairs verandah or the semi-outdoor first-floor verandah. Beds are ‘posturepedic’, showers have been cunningly incorporated into large rooms with modern glass bricks - a room within a room. Tricketts is as comfortable as it is stylish, very central - a bus runs straight past the front door to The Rocks - and there are 95 (!) restaurants on Glebe Point Rd. Air-conditioning throughout.
