A Brief History

Boronia House  was built in 1885. The site of Boronia was originally part of a Crown Grant of 4 acres of land to Vinzenz Zahel. Bridget Zahel, Vinzenz’s widow sold the land to James and John Kearey for £1,700 pounds in 1885.

Boronia House was originally, one of two almost identical neighbouring mansions built in the Victorian Filigree style of that era more commonly found in the terraces of Paddington and Balmain. Now one of the few freestanding examples of this style of architecture in Sydney  Boronia House is heritage listed of state significance.

The construction of the buildings coincided with the growing fortunes of John and James  Kearney and the expansion of their coach building business in Redfern. The two houses were designed as grand villas with extensive gardens that originally ran from Military Road north towards Ourimbah Road.

It is understood the Kearny brothers intention was to build exemplary grand villas in order to attract a certain class and inspire a standard of living in early colonial Sydney.

In 1952 Mosman Council purchased Boronia House for £15,750 and whilst still keeping its wonderful aura and timeless heritage style, modified the house for use as a Library until 1978.

Mosman Council then leased the House from 1978- 1985 to an advertising firm for use as an Art Gallery on the ground floor and office space above.

In 2012 Mosman Council completed a major refurbishment ready for a new era of entertaining generations of guests as the premier function centre on the lower North Shore.
