Bondi, Birrell Street Manor

Birrell Street Manor is located on the corner of Birrell Street and Tasman Street, in the eastern suburb of Bondi. This eccentric 19th century building, which has been a saddlery, a butcher's shop and a grocery store, is now part residence, part chiropractor and osteopath studio.

    1. CailinMarie, it's one of the oldest buildings in Bondi but I can't seem to find any information on who built it. I have provided a link in the post to a newspaper story about the owner's collection of artwork housed inside.

  4. This is a beautiful. It looks like it should be in New Orleans. You gotta love those old iron railings.

  5. Fabulous verandah on this one Jim. Don't you wish power lines were underground sometimes?

  6. Certainly an eccentric style. I like how the signs are like default windows and doors.
