Clontarf Cottage

Historic Building in Sydney Harbourside

Balmain’s jacaranda-filled streets contain dozens of historically significant buildings, most of which are privately owned. The squat, shingle-roofed Clontarf Cottage is an impressively restored house (1844) saved by protests in the late 1980s. It was part of a larger estate and features big sandstone blocks and a wide verandah.
