About the property


The Priory, built in the 1930's, is a magnificent 4 storey sandstone home occupying 1600 square metres of land in prestigious Palm Beach. The Pittwater views are enhanced by the horizon swimming pool and beautiful native tree line. The stunning interior design and original artworks blend the old and new to create an attractive, comfortable and stately environment. This grand mansion is an idyllic private hideaway.

The gardens are beautifully manicured and framed with sandstone creating a tranquil environment to maximise the water views of Pittwater and the National Park.

Stroll across the road to have a wonderful dining experience at the Relais et Chateaux, Jonah's Restaurant.

You will enjoy total privacy in this luxurious setting.


The Priory has 4 bedrooms (3 of which have ensuites), each with a queen sized bed. Each bedroom is very spacious. The master bedroom boasts a full entertainment system, sunken spa and walk in wardrobe and occupies the entire top storey.

The oversized kitchen has everything you ever wanted in your own home and more. Adjoining the kitchen is the dining table and sunroom, with tv, that leads out to the top deck for informal entertaining where you can enjoy the sunset and views over Pittwater.

The more formal lounge room is perfect for a quiet book curled up on the couch and in the winter you can luxuriate in front of the open fire in the original sandstone fireplace.

The mid level boasts a separate media room featuring a drop screen, PS3 and sound system.

Taking a leisurely dip in the horizon swimming pool with heated spa is a must! A beautiful cabana with gas BBQ is located next to the pool.

On the pool level is another sunroom with dining table, tv, and more kitchen facitlities. Perfect for poolside dining.

Backing on to the McKay Reserve, The Priory, is a perfect location for nature lovers.

A beautiful house, so quiet & perfectly appointed

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely weekend at The Priory. We had a few friends and family come join us to celebrate a special birthday and it was a very enjoyable stay. The house is stunning and over a few levels so good to give people some space if they want it and have kids sleep quietly. It's very well appointed and is so quiet, making it the perfect escape from busy city life. Highly recommended!

Excellent house with well decorated interiors

We are shocked at how big the house is and the level of details the owner has put into decorating the house. Swimming pool and spa are phenomenal!!

Fantastic beach escape so close to Sydney

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing and exactly as represented in the photos. Its unique design moving down the side of the hill was great for our extended family. It gave my parents the quiet of the upstairs master suite and left us and our kids with plenty of sleeping and living space below the main level - which itself had stellar views of the Pittwater. We will absolutely be back. First class - thanks David.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at the Priory for a long weekend.

We were celebrating a wedding in the family in the area and thought it would be

a good opportunity to spend time together before the "big day".

The Priory was the perfect accommodation.

The house, the grounds, the pool... 6 star :)

Couldn't have asked for a better venue :)

Thank you Claudia for your friendly and professional concierge services :)

Thank you David for sharing your amazing property :)

We will be back !!!!!!

Luxurious Palm Beach Escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with a group of friends (four adults and two kids) over a long weekend. The house had everything we needed including pool, spa and coffee machine. Everyone had plenty of space and privacy. It was wonderful to be able to walk across the road to Jonah's for dinner, as well as enjoy many BBQs by the pool

Wonderful accommodation experience

  • 5 of 5

Wow! what an amazing property! Everything about The Priory is exceptional. The pictures do not do this place justice and I feel very privileged to have spent some magically nights at the house.

The entire house is beautifully decorated. The kitchen- oh the kitchen! - is exceptionally high quality, as is the rest of the furnishings.

The house is big enough to very comfortably accommodate four adult couples.

The pool is magnificent and we made good use of the BBQ!

Claudia, the property manager is absolutely wonderful to deal with!
