    West Maling has a high level of aesthetic significance at a state level as one of the purest examples of the Queen Anne style of architecture existing today and it is thought to be the first of its type of residence built in Australia.
    Its significance is enhanced by its retention internally and externally of virtually all the original joinery, its original driveways and part of its original gardens.
    ...
    The design was by E.H.Henderson, Chief Architect of the Works and Services Branch of the Department of Interior. Works included demolition of the remaining rooms of the Murray/Mowatt homestead, extensions to the dining and drawing rooms, a new porte cochere, additional bedrooms, repairs to the Campbell era sections, and new garages.
    Re-rendering of the whole further helped to join the 1891 section to the rest, as did the replacement of the iron roof with tiles. Interior decoration was designed by Mrs 'Dolly' Guy Smith. As it turned out, the Duke of Kent and his family did not come to Australia after all.

    Listed in the Local Environmental Plan for Wingecarribee, 1989.

    Set apart in its own secluded hilltop woodland estate of more than 300 acres just east of Bowral in the beautiful Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Milton Park Country House Hotel & Spa is now a five star hotel.
    Milton Park Country House Hotel has a grand history. Originally known as Mansfield Farm, it was purchased by Sydney retailer, grazier and stock breeder, Anthony Hordern, in 1910. The adjoining 5000-hectare Retford Park was owned by his father, Sam Hordern.
    The heart of the hotel is the mansion, designed by Morrow and de Putron. It demonstrates Federation arts and crafts and has rendered and shingled walls, hipped and gabled roofs, tall chimneys and nouveau detailing.

    Milton Park was built in 1911 by Anthony Horden (1889-1970) and named after the town of Milton on the south coast which was founded by his maternal grandfather, John Booth. The architects were Morrow & De Putron of Sydney.
    The mansion was the focus of entertainment for many members of the Sydney "social set" of the time.
    ...
    From 1960-1976 Milton Park was owned by King Ranch (Aust) P/L but Mr P Baillieu and his wife Edwina, a daughter of the Horderns lived there. From 1977 until 1984 the Baillieus remained at Milton Park.
    In 1984 the property was sold and the then new owners, Drs Ron White and John Cooper initiated a program to establish the house as the cone of a country house hotel resort.

    ...
    Vaucluse, Sydney, NSWNSW12 December 2011 from Radical Terrace:
    Around the same time Craig-y-mor (demolished) set a soon-to-be-trumped sale record of $32.4m in March 2008, Elwatan at 10 Wentworth Road in Vaucluse attained a princely sum of $12.35m. Now, without any property renovations, the home is back on the market and it looks like they’re asking $15m+.
    Pros: The view, the view, the view; decent-sized parcel; some nice period detailing to work with
    Cons: The bulk of the yard is on the non-view side of the house and the view side is rammed up against another house; although the home is on fancy Wentworth Road, it sits in a slightly less desirable precinct (closer to New South Head Road instead of Neilson Park); the house needs a complete overhaul to meet contemporary standards.
