The space

This grand estate and main residence of Hopewood House was first established in 1884 for pastoralist Ben Osborne and his wife Lucy Throsby. It was then most famously owned by Lebbus Hordern, the “Jay Gatsby” of the Hordern family fortune until 1929. With sprawling grounds of eleven acres, guests will be spellbound by the beauty of this stunning avant-garde property. Timeless architecture, established gardens, precision shaped hedges and perfectly manicured lawns, make it an idyllic setting for weddings, events and location shoots. The current custodians of Hopewood are Australian artist Tim Storrier and his wife Janet. Tim’s sculptures feature throughout the garden, which is maintained by Janet and a dedicated team of gardeners. Tim paints in his studio within The Pavilion building on the top of the hill, where he also has a private gallery.
