'Retford Hall' stands on part of the grand site of the Hordern family's 1865 Darling Point estate, the apartment block taking its name from the original home.

With on-site building manager, elegant foyer and extensive visitor parking, plus sauna and heated indoor/outdoor pools, this property exudes a sophisticated resort-like ambience. Located amid these lovely surrounds, this deluxe abode stands at-the-ready for a new owner to enjoy the next chapter in its story.
