Failed to sell: Bishopscourt, Darling Point 

AFTER almost a year on the market, the grand 19th-century neo-Gothic mansion Bishopscourt, home to the Archbishops of Sydney since 1911, has failed to sell. Sydney diocese had hoped to realise a sale price of $25 million.

Although the house will remain on the market, some minor renovations will now be undertaken, enabling the Archbishop, the Most Revd Glenn Davies, to move in before the end of the year. Since his appointment last August, he has continued living in the diocesan house in north Sydney that was provided when he was a Sydney regional bishop.

Situated in Darling Point, one of the most fashionable harbourside suburbs in Sydney, Bishopscourt was described by the estate agents commissioned with the sale as "one of Sydney's grandest historic mansions", and "without doubt, of local and international significance, and a very rare opportunity".
