Set in the centre of the dress circle of the ritzy eastern suburbs, this is one of the places to stay in Sydney which will get you green eyed looks from all and sundry. This sprawling rental property in Sydney is reminiscent of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s fictional mansion on Long Island’s North Shore – with a little bit of Hollywood glitz and glamour to boot. Built in 1915, this prestigious harbourfront mansion can be rented out exclusively, with five bedrooms and living and dining areas sprawled over three levels. The interiors highlight the property’s original features like chandeliers, opulent Art Deco bathrooms and decorative cornices, brilliantly offset by a modern white palette, contemporary design furniture and magnificent, uninterrupted harbour views from each bedroom. You will want for nothing, with numerous televisions with cable and wireless Internet throughout, an antique grand piano, space for four cars and even butler’s quarters. Best of all, there’s a huge outdoor swimming pool and poolside cabana – overlooking the stupendous vista of the harbour, of course. Jay Gatsby and his socialites would surely approve.
