Carfax |

March 2015

Over time, Carfax has developed a large

and significant portfolio of projects their

staff can be proud of. Recently, they added

the historic Graythwaite Estate to that long


Graythwaite House is a place of excep-

tional historic significance to New South

Wales, and is included in the state’s Heritage

Register. It was originally built in 1833 and

is arguablythe oldest remaining structure of

its type in the North Sydney area. In 1915, it

was donated to the government by its then-

owner, Sir Thomas Dibbs, for use as a conva-

lescent home for returning soldiers from the

First World War.

Carfax was contracted to restore the es-

tate for use by the new owners, the Syd-

ney Church of England Grammar School

(SHORE School).

“They are a great client, as they were pas-

sionate about restoring this building to its

former glory so that its future is assured,”
