Built for retail giant Sir Samuel Hordern in 1912, the house was described by the New South Wales Heritage Office as 'one of the finest and most intact examples of an early 20th century grand house in Australia'. Babworth House was built on the original site of Mount Adelaide, granted to William MacDonald in 1833. Mount Adelaide was later owned by Henry Mort.
