Artist's Description

This quaint Gardener’s Cottage is situated near Greycliffe House at Vaucluse, Sydney, Australia.

Few 1850’s examples of Victorian Picturesque Gothick Gardener’s Cottages remain. This Cottage is the only early example from this era to survive in NSW.

The survival of Greycliffe’s Gardener’s Cottage is now a relatively rare example of what was once a common practice both in the Georgian and Victorian periods, of building lodges or gardeners cottages, usually at the gate entrances to estates.

This estate now forms part of Nielsen Park. The Cottage has been preserved and is a heritage listed site.

Canon 400D, as is.
