[Retford Hall, residence for] A Hordern Esq., Darling Point / [architect Edmund T. Blacket]

About this item: 
Commissioned by Anthony Hordern II, Retford Hall was named after his mother’s birthplace in England, Retford. The grounds were subdivided extensively in the first half of the twentieth century, although the house itself remained the property of the Horderns until it was sold in 1967 and demolished to make way for a block of flats.
